    Japan Snorlax Event. For the people affected by the earthquakes in Kyushu.

    Just evolved my first Espeon via the Sakura nickname trick. Again, not having any luck with the movesets :(

    Also, turns out that I recently caught a Relaxo with 0% IVs. I think this was a Go Plus capture (when I still had my Go Plus :() so maybe that's why I didn't notice it until recently. Also has terribly CP and a useless moveset. I think the nickname suits it quite well :rolleyes:

    I haven't evolved anything since Niantic employee said "save your candies" at the D.I.C.E. awards. Very slowly chugging along with a massive caterpie-pidgey-weedle army.

    Whats the rumour mill saying on that one? It would be awesome if we could use candies to boost IV or buy stardust.....

    Haha I was waiting too, but I've been itching to get myself an Espeon ever since I saw one in a Gym and had to deal with that bloody silhouette in the Pokedex. Plus, Eevees are common enough that I can easily recover that 25 candies I used to evolve it.

    I really hope they add HM/TMs or at the very least a move tutor mechanic in the game so I can make some of my higher IV/CP Pokemon much more useful.

    Double XP event, perhaps?


    Eevee candies are fairly easy to collect, but extra 1500XP (double XP+Lucky Egg) is somewhat tempting.

    Oh, what the hell! I will evolve my eevees today.

    I'm holding out for another high IV Eevee for my first Umbreon. That Espeon Pokédex silhouette just triggered my OCD :Paranoid:

    The assumption is a double xp event but i would be surprised if the comment was just a throw away.

    I'm sitting on 600+ pidgey candies at the moment. The way things are going i might ht lv33 before the supposed event arrives

    2151 Pidgey Candies. Before the gen2 update the Steet i work on used to have around 5 pidgeys at every pokestop (10 pokestops all fairly close) and a few in between, catch so many just farming dust.....

    I've got 150 Pidgeys with 950 candies ready to go for a couple of mass evolutions, but no Lucky Eggs to with them... I'm already level 33 so I'm not sure if it's really worth leveling up that much since I prefer to invest the little gold I can scrounge up for Incubators.

    Stoked. After all, I did the 10km buddying as well because evolving immediately after the name change can lead to random evolution.

    Maps are down due to 0.57.4, so now back to shuffling along randomly until I bump into something interesting.

    Also, Partychu event has ended, but you still can evolve them into a Celebraichu.

    EDIT: Found this on 4chan.

    Looks like spoofing and 3rd party tracking is being taken much more seriously now.

    Hopefully the gyms will become much more fun now :D

    Named an eevee "Pyro" and turned into a vaporeon. Bloody hell.

    Only works once and did you restart the app before evolve?

    Naming trick only works one time for each Eevolution and afterwards it's completely random. But you can force it to a Espeon or Umbreon if you buddy the Eevee for 10KM then evolve during the day or night, respectively.

    Oh! I didn't know that. :o

    So, you are telling me that I've been getting what I want with the naming trick when it isn't supposed to work? :Paranoid:

    Dang, real bummer.

    Glad I haven't wasted any dust on my previous vaporeons. Been using ubiquitous starmies against rhydons and golems. Starmies dish out absolutely insane damages (significantly more than my blastoise with the ideal moveset and a fair bit more than the vapoeon with the 2nd best moveset)

    how does that work, seems like the optimal moveset for both is watergun+hydropump.
    Starmie's base stat is 210attack vs vape's 205... so should be hardly any difference in damage...
