I'm still waiting on hearing of Alolan Forms and a National Dex which are my 2 hopes. How cool it would be if nobody knew the Alolan Forms until finding them in the game!

This would be neat.

But yeah, such innovation in these games. I can’t wait to buy them...

Got over Pokémon Go so quickly again. The ease of catching these new Pokémon is so high that there’s no real challenge anymore. I don’t even have to exercise anymore cause they’re all so common where I live.

Pokemon Go might be ‘over’ but the Pokemon franchise is still massive. Quite the feat after more than 20 years.

Introducing Weather and 50 Pokémon from the Hoenn Region in Pokémon GO!



Starting later this week, Treecko, Torchic, Mudkip, and several more Pokémon originally discovered in the Hoenn region in the Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire video games will start appearing in Pokémon GO for the first time ever—with even more to be discovered over the next several weeks! We’ll also be introducing a new dynamic weather system in Pokémon GO that will change the way you and the millions of Trainers around the world discover, catch, and interact with Pokémon.

You’ll want to start paying even closer attention to your local weather patterns, Trainers. In addition to the in-game map being updated with cool new weather visuals, weather near you will impact Pokémon in a variety of ways. For example, you’ll find your odds of discovering Mudkip splashing around will greatly improve on rainy days, as certain Pokémon types will be more commonly found during various weather conditions. Additionally, attacks of certain types will be more effective during some weather conditions, so a Charizard’s Fire Spin will perform better on sunny days, for example. Rain or shine, winter or spring, your gameplay experience will remain fresh, making your time outdoors even more exciting.

A little bummed that we're still getting Gen III in chunks (even after the Halloween mini-release), but at least 50 is a solid start!

They’re out now. They seem rarer than when the Gen 2 ones were released, which is good I suppose. Going out later so I’ll see what I catch.

Gen 3 seems decent. They spawn rarer than Gen 2 when that was first released, so it might be harder to complete which I’m glad about.

And I love the new weather features.

I haven't played Ultra Sun in about 2 weeks, I'm still only on the second island. I'm kind of over it.

Anyone still on Go? I reinstalled. Missed half a million legendary raids, but got my first EX raid today, presumably for Mewtwo.

Congrats! That's a pretty awesome way to welcome you back to the game :D Good luck with the Raid!

I'm still pretty hooked (especially with so many Gen III Pokémon available now, I still need a lot of Candy for a lot of evolutions.) Speaking of Legendaries, I've failed to catch Kyogre a few times now, so hopefully I can finally nab one this weekend...

I’ve never done a legendary raid before.

I’m doing alright with Gen 3. I went to London yesterday and got another 6 Pokédex entries. Still haven’t seen any Slakoths though, and I’ve got nowhere near enough Wailmer candies to evolve it.

Kyogre is a nightmare. I’ve had about 10 goes and only managed to catch him 3 times, and even then only one of them was a ‘wonderful’ version. Sort of wish I hadn’t given up but I suppose all the missing legendaries will make a return at some point.

I doubt I’ll catch Mewtwo (if it’s him) but it’s worth a go - 5 minutes and counting :lol:
