    lol i was about to post asking if anyone else had their CP's changed. About 75% of noteworthy pokemon increased and the rest decreased.

    The winners for me were
    Snorlax from 2400 -> 2589
    3 Jolteons from 1400's -> 1900's

    The main looser for me was
    Blastoise from 1900's -> 1700's

    Interesting... very interesting :Pirate:

    Surely we're just going to see even more Vaporeon / Gyarados defenders now? Weird.

    edit: and other less common but still useful ones have been nerfed, like Slowbro and Wigglytuff.

    I woke this morning and noticed that I had a 1300CP Blastoise when I swore it was closer to 1500CP... Anyway, I guess it's fine to have a shake up every now and then, but it is a bit worrying, especially if you're always tight on candies and Stardusts.

    I myself just like to level up my favourites, which fortunately have been some of the biggest winners with this re-balancing. Tempted to level up my Rhydon now, but surely, Rhyperior is coming soon, right? Right?

    EDIT:

    TOP 15 BASE ATTACKS
    Mewtwo - 330
    Alakazam - 271 [!]
    Dragonite - 263
    Gengar - 261
    Zapdos - 253
    Moltres - 251
    Flareon - 246
    Kingler - 240
    Pinsir - 238
    Gyrados - 237
    Machamp - 234
    Exeggutor - 233
    Kadabra - 232
    Jolteon - 232
    Arcanine - 227

    Oh wow. Niantic definitely just went crazy with the stat retribution.

    I hope so. I have been earning heaps lately.

    Now that Chansey has been boosted significantly I might play around with powering mine up. It will be interesting to see how high 50 candies will get me.

    might be a good gym defender? long lasting punching bag. I put one on for the lulz and then regretted it when it takes ages to heal it up with shitty potions lol

    If you have 50 Chansey candies, you might want to wait for Blissey in gen 2... Unless you can source them from a regular nest?

    Haha most people I've seen have gotten over it already. The top tier Pokemon are still top tier, there's just a few more up there now too.

    A couple of interesting things about the update.

    1) All my fallen pokemon got revived overnight
    2) Pokemon left in gyms pre-update are ranked on their old stats

    Itching to gain back some gym control tomorrow. I lost 3 gyms tonight in the span of an hour.
