    First ive seen it. Looks pretty good though. Ever since the last spawn update there are some ok nests around my place, wheras there were none before.

    I have a Magma nest about 50m from my house and a Grimmer one around 200m. Never even new nests existed until the last few days.

    Great catch :)
    All I get are a Pidgey, rat and spearow
    To me that's almost like winning the lotto :/ and my family haven't even seen one yet or a Snorlax.

    Sooo.... My Go Plus has been on fire today. I honestly did not know there was a Snorlax near me until I checked my recent catches. I was too busy Snapchatting and using Facebook :/

    I use it two ways;

    a) Use it to count steps while busy doing something else, collecting Pokestop items and saving battery life on the phone only pulling it out when it vibrates and lights up green.

    b) Use it while playing the game on the phone, capturing Pokemon/collecting items that it locks onto, while getting the other Pokestops and Pokemon (especially useful in the city).

    Also very handy for playing the game discretely at work, or while socializing with judgemental people haha.

    For the retail price of $50, I'd say it's worth it. But I wouldn't pay scalpers prices for them though. Keep an eye out on the official Nintendo Of Australia/New Zealand eBay store since they sell them when they get shipments in at retail prices (where I got mine from).

    Lucky you got it with all three accounts.

    The base flee rate is higher than the base catch rate for Dragonite's.

    Still haven't seen one in the wild, or a Lapras for that matter.

    There definitely has been a couple more "ultra rare" spawn points of fully evolved and 10km egg Pokemon since the latest migration (end of the Halloween event?). There's like 4 of them now within a 500m radius of my house.

    But I'm still waiting for a Dragonite to pop up myself as well...

    I swapped my mine out recently when the low-battery icon popped up. So it lasted just over a fortnight. Granted, I pretty much had it paired up to my phone whenever I was awake.

    Also, migration just happened. Local Doduo nest just turned in a Squirtle one. Kinda bit of a shame. I just evolved my Wartortle just before it happened and got Water Gun/Flash Cannon :/

    Agreed, what decade is it to not have a rechargable USB device for something like this?

    Probably would have cost us more a wee bit more for a rechargeable battery. You know how Nintendo likes to profit on hardware... Anyway, the batteries are cheap enough and compared to other devices, these last long enough.

    Definitely can make it last longer if I don't press the button all the time unnecessarily. That little buzz is very soothing, therapeutic for the figidity types :)

    Yes but they are 100% more then if i wasn't using it ;)

    Picked up a 89% IV 903 execcute yesterday on it, evolved and powered up twice to make a 2522 Exeggutor, another worthy gym defender :)

    Yeah you're right. It's Pokémon/items that I wouldn't have been bothered to get anyways :)
