    Bleh, so many people asking me to do their EX Raid tomorrow, yet I only have two devices. I asked them if they could leave a spare phone but they say they can't leave one just in case they need to raid with it during the day...

    Looks like a few gyms have moved/changed.
    Pyrmonts Ex gym Paradise Reserve have moved 20m up the road and now Paradise Quarry.

    Haven't looked into what cell it sits in but being by the main road.. and not a parkland.. seems like one EX gym down.

    i managed 17 raids in the 3 hours :), but that was 10 on one account and 7 on the other as i ran out of passes. managed to get an ex raid pass on each account too. well over half way to 37 on main and managed to get a full level and half way into 29 on the second account. (only just started using second account occasionally to get friendship levels up for transfers. saw someone locally get the 1 million km distance travelled between pokemon transferred. one mon got him to 17000 km alone from france lol

    Yeah has been fun. Between the two I got 9 shiny plus/min. I also got a random shiny Aron which means I now have the complete shiny Aron family.

    I'm still annoyed I wasn't able to get to go fest. From all accounts it was really good this time around.

    Trying to plan zapdos day. Our raid train did 17 articuno raids But we were far from efficient. Assuming every gym will have a raid (minus the current EX raid gyms). I feel like doing it on foot is easily achievable. We have a couple of very dense streets here in Brunswick, 10 gyms for 1800m + another 10 gyms within 200m of the main rd. Being on foot everyone can walk and catch, the quicker people can run ahead and start lobbies. How many gyms can we hit? and should I design a loop back to the start? so people don't have to walk 2Ks back to their car?

    yo aero, I have about 40~ friends on my list, I try to send a gift to all friends daily (its easier for me to do since i live on a pokestop). you were one of my first 5-10 friends added, as long as i keep sending to you daily we should keep gaining friendship level to best friends in a few more months, even if you cant send me a gift, try to open my gift before you max out daily so i can keep sending so our level can continue to increase :D :D

    If you guys are really keen into farming shiny and/or good IV Zapdos this weekend, best be prepared rush throw Premier Balls or just run away from low IV Zapdos. I'm aiming to do at least 25 again this weekend, but I'll actually probably have leave early because I have a gig to get to just before the event finishes :Paranoid:

    Yep anything under 1890cp or 2363cp (if weather boosted) ~96iv (unless shiny) is not even gonna have a ball thrown at it. Got a raid train with 10 lvl 40 accounts in the car happening. Hoping to do 30 raids.

    Managed to do 29 Raids on foot ! Absolutely exhuasted. Ended up with 2 shinies within the first 8 raids, the second being a 96% with 15attack. And then it was downhill from there.

    The politics and drama leading up to the event were hilarious. Our private raid crew split into 3 different groups. I think some of them are salty with me. I organised a route going south to north, to accomodate the majority. But none were willing to commit to 15 raids. Had 2 people who said they'd keep going til shiny or as long as the group wants to go. I ended up running away with the Wildlings of the brunswick chat. Once there I spotted a couple of familiar faces who were disasatisfied with the pace on articuno day. So we took charge, and absolutely steam rolled through. Our group quickly separated from the main group. At the end of the day the car group did 2 worse than articuno day only raiding 15. Our group did 29, And the second brunswick chat group got 30 somehow? Either it was a miscount, or they really picked up the pace and dropped the dead weight early on. I know we slowed things down in the last hour, we were running out of good gym density. And frankly I was happy with anything over 15 and to have 1 shiny.

    Ahh yes the politics, Well we had organised to do a car full of high level valor players and told everyone else our plans of smashing out raids.
    So a few others decide to tag along. That was cool and we explain again the way we had planned doing it ie go in and a soon as the raid animation says GO then drive to the next raid spot.
    The first person to catch their zappy - which if you have a shiny is straight away - starts the clock on the next gym and everyone has that countdown to either catch or flee and go in and then revive. Needed to get in the raid before the timer hit about 15 secs to go.
    Yeah, Yeah all good, great.
    Not so great after about 4 gyms.
    It's "wait for me", " I'm not in yet" "i haven't caught it yet" .
    Explained again, yes you might miss a raid or miss catching a zappy and possibly lose a raid pass in the whole scheme of smashing through things as quick as possible.
    Most of the cars dropped out and find out later that our car was dubbed the "secret society" :/ lol
    Alolan marrowak is pretty darn cool. I'd rather raid it and raichu than regi.

    Yeah for events like that you need strict rules to get as many in as possible. We went around in 2 car teams with 5ish accounts per car. We would do the raid and move to the next location once we hit the catch screen with a passenger catching for the driver. We might hang around a little longer if some one had a hundy.
