Trapinch Community Day? More Like Weather Boosted Day!

Well, Trapinch Community Day was… a thing. I like Trapinch, it’s fucking adorable and Vibrava is pretty cool as well. Flygon’s alright too. But the Trapinch Community Day was a bit of a bloody mess. Why? Because there was a severe lack of Trapinch spawns. Reports everywhere in Asia and Europe are all saying the same thing, that the presence of Trapinches was very hit and miss, with some places with lots of normal spawns having nothing, some new areas having loads of spawns and other places having spawns overrun with other Pokemon. Cyprus, it seems, did alright for itself.… [Continue Reading]

The Slakoth Community Day that Really Slacked Off

I’m not sure why Niantic decided to choose Slakoth for June’s Community Day. There’s not a lot of reasons I can think of why it was picked, but I can think of plenty of reasons why it wasn’t a good choice. I suppose it fits the criteria for a Community Day Pokemon. A three-stage Pokemon with a cute basic form and a monstrous final evolution and a second evolution that no one cares about, capable of having a somewhat signature move, having some sort of use somewhere and tends to only come from 10km eggs, while being insanely rare in… [Continue Reading]

Torchic Community Day

I really enjoyed the Torchic Community Day. Just like the previous Bagon and Totodile ones, the Torchic Community day gave us three hours of KFC battered and breaded chicken fun as we baked in the sun while throwing balls at cute digital flightless birds. Mostly. Torchic Day was on Sunday rather than Saturday this month, meaning I saw a few more people wandering around. There’s normally two good spots to camp and catch Pokemon – the harbour and town hall and while I’ve always opted for town hall (because it’s shadier and you don’t get harassed by people trying to… [Continue Reading]

Treecko Community Day

Well another Community Day has been and gone. This one featured Treecko, the Generation 3 grass starter Pokemon and number 1 in the Hoenn national Pokedex. But this Community Day was ever so slightly different. I mean, the normal stuff wasn’t different at all. A ton of Treeckos spawned, mostly replacing the spawns of every other Pokemon. Lure Modules had a longer timer on them and for this event, all eggs put into incubators hatched four times faster than normal (which meant the one 10km egg I got hatched in 2.5km instead of 10). Treeckos were everywhere, but Lure Modules… [Continue Reading]
