    What's everyone think of Shiny Lapras? the quests seem quite rare. Our raid group has been carpooling all over Melbourne. Last Saturday was a bit of a shamozzle though. All the lapras quests got swapped out at 5pm! And we got screwed over by it. Also the similarity between Win 5 gym battles and Battle in a Gym 5 times is quite annoying, and has led to many false reports..

    It has been fun to venture out into the other parts of our city. Some places I've never been, others I haven't been to in a long time.

    Lapras tasks seems to have been nerfed, which is no surprise at all. Typical Niantic.

    I can't get an event shiny to save my life. A couple of our friends got 6 or 7 diglets, i manged to scrape 1 at the 11th hour.

    I spent several hours yesterday walking around, tapping on so many possible shinies. Nada!

    And then this morning my gotcha got a shiny cubone :)

    The other day I managed to tap on two shiny Bulbas :lol:. Niantic was taking the piss.

    All good now. the gotcha managed to pick up a 280CP shiny Aipom. Now I just gotta get the psyduck & snubull.

    keen for torchic day on sunday, but mega keen for shiny lapras raid train the following sunday
    edit - so pretty ho hum sort of day, didn't start til 4 and ended up with 6 shiny on my main and 4 on my alt. best being 80 iv so nothing flash, evolved 2x96iv and a 98iv ive had sitting waiting for the somewhat lacklustre special move and there we are.
    Also evolved a coupe of spare shiny evees into glaceon and leafeon.
    Oh yeah also caught a 100iv houndour and lashed out on a couple of great value ultra boxes for next weeks Lapras raid train.
    edit - shiny charmander today
