I was half awake, half asleep resting on the couch about an hour ago and my almost 23 year old son comes in the door from working at the hospital and says "oh my gosh don't move." There was apparently a "Pidgey" on the top of the couch pillow right above my head! Lol.

Haha, Love it. Theres some good Photos going around lol.

Highest my friend said he saw a 952 Flareon lol. Should see a 1k tonight or tomorrow for sure.

I'm at hard spot, keep leveling up Pidgeot (535) or save my points and do a stronger Base Pokémon when I catch one... Decisions Decisions Decisions. lol.

I've been having a lot of fun with this game. I took over a gym on my way to work, but it was taken back from me while I was working. After work I went back to re-take it, but when I defeated his Pokemon the game froze and was having all sorts of connection problems and never gave me the win. I tried 3 times and wasted a bunch of potions, but no luck. I'll be back tomorrow.

One question I have-

I have a Pidgey CP 123 and a Pidgeot CP 26. To get the best Pidgeot, would it be better to evolve the Pidgey I have with the higher CP, or should I save materials and simply work on powering up the Pidgeot I already have.

Also, if you power up a Pokemon before you evolve it, do you lose the progress you made powering it up, or does that carry over to the next evolution.

Powering up before evolution is important. It will start you out stronger. I would evolve the pidgey for sure.

Thanks, that helps a lot! Is there a limit to how many times you can power up a Pokemon?

EDIT: I figured this one out myself! =) It looks like that white arc over the Pokemon's picture is representative of it's power level. Once the white arc is full it's maxed out. I think.

No problem, your edit is correct. The arc is the cp meter.

Yup! Just figured this out today while my battle was frozen. You press your finger down on your pokemon for a couple seconds and then let go. That should fire off a special attack.

Yikes more reasons for people to walk around and stare at their phones.

anyone else have their games glitch during gym matches? I was on the 3rd battle of the gym and everytime it would start it would take me back to the pokemon selection page... this happened at 3 different ones

hatched a Mankey last night and caught a Scyther (CP 276) and Exeggutor (CP 420) pretty excited about those considering when I first started I wasted all my stardust leveling up weaker pokemon instead of focusing on a couple

I must be the last dinosaur on Earth who enjoys going for walks to look and listen to actual Earth nature...

Where are we headed as a society? So dependent on a glowing screen.

Sigh....

Teen playing new Pokémon game on phone discovers body in Wind River
I chuckled when I saw this.

There needs to be an adult version of his game, a la GTA. You could find kilos of dope or a dead body.

i think people like you are what's wrong with society. so quick to judge, point the finger, blame someone/something else, and of course the I'm better than you aura because your brain thinks your better then us for not playing a game?
Did I say you were corrupting society?

I just don't get it...that's all.

Why walk around and look for an imaginary thing when you could walk around and look for real things like moose or deer? Have you ever gone for a walk in the forest? It's a blast.

Why would I think I'm better than you? I'm glad it makes you happy....I just don't understand it...it makes zero sense to me.
