Hahah, yah, cannot hero or geh kiang to use pinap. .
other pple acc.. i just gb n rest is history.

my acc.. i always use 3-4 pinapple.. sometimes 6.. if i have 13-14 ball..

well.. becos of 6% base capture raid.. pinapple is about 15 %? or thereabout.. the highest possible % u can get from 2% legendary when u try the hardest...

more than half of my mewtwo are caught with pinapple..
not that i want to save rare candies.. but.. the feel is different.. if caught with pinapple compare to gb. to me at least.

correction.. is 18.75%.. according to gamepress.. if u feed pinapple.. hit curve n excellent.

mine also 2x 88%.. the rest are just lower.

so.. not really better in any ways.

Even if they up the trainer level, still need to evaluate if there are any benefits if not no point grinding so much just for plain bragging rights or an end point that keeps shifting

Fighting event!! (there goes your gym golds, time to build up your machamp team, shiny Machop??)

https://pokemongolive.com/post/battleshowdown2018

Trainers,

It’s time to test the strength of your Pokémon during a special battle event! Fighting-type Pokémon, such as Machop and Makuhita, will appear more frequently in the wild starting May 1 at 1:00 p.m. PDT.

But what’s a battle celebration without some competition at your nearby Gym? Until May 14, you’ll receive 2× bonus XP for Gym Battles and Raid Battles. Plus, Raid Battles will also award a guaranteed 3,000 Stardust for participating—and at least one Rare Candy if you win!

Several actions at Gyms will yield bonuses, including a 2× Badge multiplier, so you can receive even more benefits at a Gym you visit frequently. Just stopping by? Spinning the Photo Disc at Gyms will also yield more items!

Our Battle Showdown is sure to pack a punch, so don’t miss it!

Come out of no where

Don't really understand about the badge multiplier thingy

Does that mean at the gym you got gold badge now when you spin 2x the usual no of items will drop out ?

Then die die must go and spin during the 7th day streak

my understanding is.

faster to get gym into gold badge. for eg 1 raid give 1000 points. maybe with event. u get 2000 points per raid.

i may be wrong tho.

This is to Generate interest in gym battling
With most gyms dominated by mons that fighting counters, this becomes a great event

Also Spoofers might be a minority in playing population but seems to dominate gyms hence this event

The double xp is also to help those doing mew - level 25 quest

Since the turn of the year Niantic has been running 'special event' after 'special event'. I think Niantic realised they need to provide more contents or special events otherwise majority of trainers would just take it easy and play little.

In SG, gym fight is not fun. Very often you have unreasonable residents who think that they own the gyms near to their house. I am aware of many bad blood between players around my area because of gym.
