Unfortunately, shinyness isn't revealed until you tap on them and it is randomized for every player, just like Magikarp/Gyarados before

Must hit about 20 or so Pikas at the nest before Sparkles showed up!

Just ducked out to a nearby raid and picked up my first Articuno. 1/15 for those now.

BTW, is there any penalty for powering up past 3000CP now? I know for a while there 3000+CP mons would decay really fast in gyms but now it seems everything decays that fast. So I'm thinking of burning up a few of these rare candies on maxing out my high-end guys.

No specific penalty any more. Currently everything will be redlining or close to it after 8hrs.

My only recommendation would be to keep some rare candy and stardust aside for mewtwo as he is supposed to be super powerful.

Excuse me, but did you just assume xer's gender???

Yeah I actually don't want to evolve her because I think that love heart tail looks cute. the docked one as Raichu is just odd.

Aye, congrats! Should also note that even missed Ledgie Raids count as completed so when Mewtwo is released for the rest of the world, you should get invites for all those 14 other raids. Assuming you defeated it of course

I'm pretty sure that all Pokιmon decay at the same percentage rate overall with regards to CP/Motivation, now. It used to be that 2,999 and lower had nearly upto 10 times lower rate of decay but it's all the same across the board.

The only thing to watch is that remote feeding is less effective as you get further away from the gym.

So if you want to last longer, put in your stronger defensive Pokιmon and stuff 'em full of Golden Razz Berries. I have high level Snorlax and Blissey all over the city and usually last more than a day or two now.

I've tapped into more than 50 I reckon and they all look yellow to me


Side note:Why does one need the pokemon to stay in gym for long?
Unlike the old system, we are capped at 50coins per day. And if they dont kick you out then you cant cash out anyways...

Well you need 8hrs-ish of gym time to get your coins. Beyond that gym sitting is a good option for getting gold badges... then you have those people who cant help but control "their territory"

I believe I clicked on over a hundred of them before my Sparkle showed up. Unfortunately, it's purely RNG at the moment as there is no known mechanic in game that you can exploit to increase the chances.

Best thing you can do right now is hit up a cluster nest (using a map scanner and/The Silph Road Map Atlas) and click on every one.

Some people in my raid group apparently got Mewtwo invites, can't see anything on Google though.

I would be very skeptical without seeing the pass in their inventory.

Yes, I am skeptical. No screenshots. I don't think we'll see Mewtwo before the 31st.

I would be just a tad butthurt if people are getting invites now and I haven't (which I haven't). I've completed 88 Ledgie Raids, you'd think at least one of them would get an invite...
