It's a bit shit but hey, it's Mew! My Kanto Dex is now at 150, only Tauros missing.
Awesome! You mentioned an upcoming trip to the States, so a truly complete Kanto Dex in on the horizon, which is really impressive! I don't think I'll be nabbing a Mr. Mime or Kangaskhan anytime soon for mine :lol: Congrats on the second successful Alakazam takedown too!

In general GO news, tomorrow (Sunday, April 15th) is the next Community Day featuring Mareep:

• Exclusive move "Dragon Pulse" for Ampharos
• 1/4 egg hatch distance
• 3-hour Lures

"Dragon Pulse" isn't the most exciting option for (non-Mega) Ampharos, but pink Mareep is pretty adorable. Happy hunting!

So it took me 10 minutes to catch 6 Mareep to finally get my Ampharos, and about another 10 minutes (with berries) to find a shiny and enough candies to evolve that too :lol:

Oh and I finally caught enough Magikarp :D Plus my final one was also my first shiny, so I evolved that there and then :lol:

I've been catching loads this week with the nice weather, I'm about 320 Swablu candies now and added Feebas, Stantler, Flaafy, Arbok, Moltres, Wingull, Aggron, Carvanha, Anorith, Sunny Castform and Beldum to my dex. Also finally got a Sandslash which means Dugtrio is the only regular pokemon from Gen 1 still not even showing as seen on my pokedex.

So a friend and I moaned about how boring it has become now we’re closing in on a complete Pokédex. So we agreed to setup a new account each and start from scratch. Totally reinvigorated it for me, though I miss all my legendaries and I’m shit at gym battles :lol:

Edit: I’m over this :oops:

^ I was about to say - starting again from scratch would NOT appeal to me at all if I was still playing GO.

But I can see you got over it very quickly hahaha.

Pokemon news to be announced on the 31st May. The initial translation said it was ‘shocking Pokemon news which starts a new story’ but was later corrected to ‘Full of Pokemon Information’.

Likely Pokemon Switch news so I’m excited :D

Two days :o

A game for the Switch is the thing that would make the most sense. Really excited!

This reimagining of Pokémon Yellow is set in the Kanto region and will be available November 16, 2018 worldwide
Professor Oak makes a return
There are multiple controller configurations: local one player mode using one Joy-Con and local two player mode using two Joy-Cons
You catch Pokémon very similarly to how you catch in Pokémon GO using motion controls
There is a new Pokéball inspired peripheral called the Pokéball Plus that can be used as a traditional controller, and for motion control capturing in Let’s Go. It can also be used to bring your Pokémon around IRL (similar to the Pokéwalker from HGSS), connecting to Pokémon GO as a Go Plus device.
You can also send Pokémon originally discovered in the Kanto region from GO to let’s Go! Pikachu & Let’s Go! Eevee via the Pokémon GO Park.
These games will contain atleast one brand new, never before seen Pokémon (Hinted at the end of the trailer). However, other than that, only the original 151 and the Alolan Forms will be available in game
Although there are trainer battles, there are no wild Pokémon battles
Both the protagonist, as well as your partner Pikachu or Eevee can be dressed up using different, customizable clothing
When you encounter a Pokémon it displays both the Level and its CP

Along with these two games, the “core RPG”, main series game that TPCi and Nintendo promised us at E3 2017 has been slated for a 2019 release! These games will be similar to Pokémon X & Y, and Sun & Moon – appeasing to the competitive, hardcore fanbase – while Let’s Go appeals to a more broad audience.
So this is kind of Pokémon Yellow meets Pokémon Go mixture with a more traditional Pokémon RPG coming next year.
I am still a bit mixed about this, but I am curious to play it

Looks like one big gimmick to me, an overpriced (undoubtedly retail cost for a Switch game) version of Pokemon Go. Unimpressed. Bring on 2019 for the real Pokemon game.

I think we just have to see this game as a filler until the real game comes next year, there are some parts of this though that look really cool and I'd love to see go through to the Gen 8 game, like the riding of pokemon and the pokemon being out in the overworld.

The only big thing that annoys me are the Gen II, IV, IV evolutions not being included. I know it is basically a game sort of based on Pokémon Yellow with Go mechanisms, and breeding most likely not being a thing at all,, but since Eevee is one of the faces of the game, I would have loved to be able to have an Espeon or Sylveon down the line. Same for using a Politoed or Bellosom, but I guess I have to deal.

As they seem keen on having this integrated with Go, I wonder if there’ll be DLC later to allow further Pokemon’s

A beta version of g/s leaked and a lot of pokemon were supposed to have both preevolutions and/or evolutions including vulpix, doduo etc. Also Umbreon was originally meant to be poison type and Leafeon was also meant as gen II mon.

Apparently they’re inrroducing trading, excellent news.

I haven’t played properly in a while but played during the Larvitar event. I eventually got a shiny at 12:58 with 2 minutes to spare after having already caught 70 Larvitar.

Yeah I’ve given up on this to be honest. I play occasionally I’m over going out and about for Pokemon. I’ve moved back to playing Leafgreen and Heartgold on my iPad.

I'm playing less overall too, especially with all the bugs that have surged.

I've added you Spartan, we are already started building our friendship.
I liked how one of your gifts came from like one of the Spanish Islands (?) and mine came almost from the Arctic :lol:
