[Story] After a Long and Arduous Journey....I Finally did it!!
And fittingly it was the Gold Dragon Badge which was the last one (And by far the toughest) to obtain! Especially as i am a semi rural player and it took a lot of travelling to Dratini spawning areas and hard work to get there :) Some days i would roam along the beach for 2-3 hours with just 1 Dratini appearing and sometimes there were none but i never gave up :)
It has been quite a journey and as Ash always says, Its just the beginning :) I am sure i am extremely late in getting this haha ..so please be kind..Anyone who is still waiting to get them all?
I've had my dragon badge for a while (I live on the coast where dratini spawn occasionally) but I only just achieved my fighting badge thanks to a Machop nest and gen3 arriving at the same time this past week.
I play still day one and still am stuck with 8 Dragon Pokemon... luck is not with me, but I only play 2 hours a day to university and back so I dont see other biomes very often.
I don’t even have silver in dragon yet...but I’m close. Gold in all the rest lol
Well..i would have been in the same situation as you if i didnt travel..I just had to get all gold badges as 1.I love Pokemon a little too much and 2. My OCD was killing me :)

WAY too many people are simply upvoting and hoping that'll be enough, this is the closest level of convenience to upvoting you can find WHILE actually making a difference.
The intent is to make as much noise as possible from every angle. Overload every possible server, get our numbers as high as we can in every poll. Let the FCC know ALL EYES are on them.
This requires next to zero human interaction. Anyone can do this. Please do your part.
I’m happy to see this, but I have very little hope. This bill was sponsored by a Democrat Senator. In the Republican Senate, it will almost assuredly be strongly and vigorously opposed based on the party line alone.
Thank you for the link. As a Canadian, I filled out the international one... but at the end it gives an option to leave my phone number? It offers a script to talk to my senator? I just stopped there, having filled out my email response. Is there somewheres else I should have responded? (Edit: tweeted)
Battleforthenet.com and resistbot.io are simple ways to let your congress people know that you are unhappy with the fcc’s plan to repeal NN, and want your congress person to oppose the fcc’s plan.
It’s a regional. I bet you live in the America’s
I’ve been getting Plusles, but no Minuns
I did not know that... Kinda sad
Can we just say thank you to Niantic for once?
I'm so happy with this update. Easily my favorite so far. My area went from rainy, swarmed with wurmples, woopers, staryus, chinchous to partly cloudy with eevees, kabutos, omanytes, pidgeys, pidgeot, sentrets everywhere to now sunny and I'm so excited to explore. This is makes catching mons super fun and introduces a great deal of variety to certain areas. Maybe certain biomes like in LA may lack diversity but for most it's a great thing.
The stardust boost from those catches are awesome. I get even more excited for an ariados, pidgeotto and that stuff now.
On top of it all, the 'mons spawned by the weather are super strong! Got a 1000 Geodude that became a 2500 golem, 852 Bulbasaur that became a 2275 Venusaur, a 1238 gloom that became a 1978 vileplume, a 484 Pidgey that became a 1782 pidgeot and a 854 Eevee that I plan to make a really strong espeon. I love this. More strong mons, less necessity for stardust grinding and better IVs. I love it!
Lastly, the gen 3 pokemon. I was worried that with 50 new Pokemon only that they would make them super abundant and too easy to find. But they aren't that common tbh. Most times, I see 1-2 new Pokemon max on my nearby and they are the usual suspects. I have found some makuhitta, skitty, spoinks and stuff but not too many which is awesome.
My one qualm is that I've seen like 12 sevipers. I think he should have been more rare. Curious to see which egg he comes from. Felt like him and zangoose should have been from 10 km eggs. But that's a very small issue and I'm trying to be grateful.
What do you like about the update? What do you dislike? I'm super happy personally.
The update is great. My problem is that Niantic think temperatures around freezing point is extreme, so no extra spawns or bonuses for me so far. They'll probably adjust that though. If not, that kind of sucks, because I doubt it will get much warmer the next 3 months.
I’m quite happy with the one wurmple I caught (#RuralLife). But seriously, if Niantic keeps up like this the memes could die.
Gotta hand it to Niantic - they've definitely improved in the last month. While not amazing (there's still a laundry list of things we've been asking for for months), it's an improvement at least.
They've communicated more which alone is great, and the last couple of updates (weather + Gen 3) have been actually pretty well thought out. I actually feel compelled to open the game up now instead of logging in once a month for a legendary raid (if I need it) and forgetting about it after.
I just hope this isn't a blip/temporary thing and they'll continue improving.
Same here. I'm from north-eastern Canada and if this part is here to stay I won't have weather in the game at all until April.
I mean why even have snow as a type of weather if weather gets nullified at around the freezing point?
Bagon?!? WHERE ARE U?!?!? BAGONNNNN
there's no wailmer?
Why is Spheal on the intro image, but not on that list?

Edit: Going to stop updating for now.
I still think these are hilarious even if half this sub hates these posts
that's a Moltres my dude.
Nah if the sub really hated them it wouldn't make the front page every time. I think we just love to hate it
Looks like spaghetti bolognese
IM SO GODDAMNED LUBED AND READY FUCK
Actually, on iOS App Store the version is still 0.85.1 (1.55.1)
Hopefully its a rolling update (unless I got my terms mixed up). Just checked as well.
That sounds right. I’ve been updated ahead of my friend before. Just gotta keep checking.
Unless I have to kill time in one spot, I pretty much never bother attacking any gym with more than one or maybe defenders at full motivation.
Much easier to wait until the next day and then knock them all out in 30 seconds. Not only is there no time for the owner to throw a golden razz, they probably will be happy to see their mon knocked out by then anyway.
The worst is when you go against a maxed out lvl 40 Blissey.
There are some players around me that I just like to see burn... I'm looking at you lady with 8 Blisseys... If I see her on a gym, I'll take the time to knock her off just because I'm petty.
Papa bless! Wish more played this way. There are nobs around me that just want to control every gym
Won't be til about 1pm PST
It's only 7am.
Not to mention it's just not productive in the slightest and doesn't offer any real criticism or commentary - i.e., a shitpost.
