Today encountered a lot of errors at gym. First type is not matter how many fast or charge moves the opponent motivation never go down. Sometime after seeing this error , cannot leave the battle , kept pressing the runaway button nothing happened, had to close the app. Last type of error is kept stucked at the entering gym “Go” screen” but actually my Pokémon is inside got whack until when I finally entered the battle only left 20-30% motivation. Very bad experience. Wasted so many potions .

History is repeating itself. I did 4 Kyogre raids so far, no shiny. Friends also the same. NN. Tsk. The good days of Lugia shiny are but distant memory/false dawn.

Nowadays it seemed NN is pushing very hard with all sort of theme events. First the adventure event, then this water event. Then there is the desire to get hold of new coveted shinies in these events. It's tempting to go all out for shinies during these events, but I guess I will not be able to keep this up with these events if these events coming in fast and furious. Last time, they have one event per month, or around US holiday period, so those extra XP/candies/stardust events are pretty much welcomed after long droughts. I think I'll play at my own pace, and try to ignore the hype. Afterall, it's just a game. If I continue with this pace, I'll get burned out sooner than later. Today I did 3 raids and in every raid, I can hear disappointing comments or sigh for not getting a shiny. It set me thinking maybe we are giving ourselves too much pressure for this game.

For those who caught the shiny kyogre, is it 100% catch like lugia? I didn’t smell any Ho-oh so didn’t know if there’s a change or not.

Actually the adventure week and water event last year also have. But of course I can’t remember the reward details and they didn’t come in back to back

becos they realize.. game reach this stage.. if no event.. alot less pple will play.. since old bird more or less already "complete" everything... so need event to entice them..

for new player.. if no event.. gameplay is very slow for them..

i guess NN will just keep pushing event after event.. maybe sometimes 1 or 2 week break in between.. their milking shiny now... (so many pokemon havnt got shiny release in the wild.. so they will slowly release via "various type of events")

I think is good.. ya.. as always play at own pace.. some day play more some day dont play.. health more impt.. everyday choing.. will go crazy..

The good thing besides those event bouns is.. when there is event.. there will be Sales box in the shop.. make spending coins more worth it now.. becos we get more item.. last time all item is ala carte.. sibei xiong.. sibei sian...

NN can help tho. .by making the shiny odds higher.. so its easier to get or more people can get..

its not like people tio liao they will stop playing entirely.. they will still hoot to find more or find better 1.

(1 good example is CD.. how often u see pple tio 1 shiny liao then close the game n close shop.. of cos u can argue.. they play for the bonus or candies too.. but.. you get what i mean..)

Myself.. i consider still quite active... on somedays .. I play alot.... I can understand why pple feel disappointed or dulan. Mainly is becos.. they tio pwn by RNG.. But RNG is like that.. u win some u lose some.. sometimes u win more .. sometimes not.

Or they felt their effort is not paid off. not to their expectation.. Or competitiveness among each other..
(maybe especially so if money is involve)

But I always say.. RNG is like lucky draw... u cant control.. you can only influence.. "Hoot more.. more chance lor.. but no sure win" 50% is effort.. 50% is luck.. need abit of both. else is GG.

no point dulan over something u cant control.. n if a game is adding stress or pressure.. its time to stop.. play something else or find something else to do...

Ya.. juz use free pass...
If get, good. Otherwise, no big deal.
What I like about the adventure quest is that NN “forces” players to learn more about the game; eg. must learn to throw curve ball, which are water Pokémons, electric etc

Btw, is it possible to get feebas from a 2km egg? I thought I was walking my 2km egg and out hatched a feebas. Hmm.. maybe I was walking a 10km.
