It was a fun outreach today. I went to the nearest gym at 11 am, only a scattered few trainers on sight. But lobby told a different story, with a strong 20 trainers putting in an effortless slaughter of the first unfortunate boss that was on duty at the gym. Was delighted to get a shiny on first try. A few of us started to discuss if we want to raid together, and we started a tiring but enjoyable walk around the estate for the next one and a half hour. A few have several phones, and multiple account, and all were happy to wait for everyone to complete before moving to the next target.
On a personal note, was fortuitous to get 3 out of 6 shiny zapdos. Highest is with 89% IV. Happy on 2 counts - the 3 shiny Zapdos I caught and the good company I made in the time raiding together. Giving credits when it is due, I take my hat off NN for this masterstroke. It is a cool way to bring people together for a common goal.

shiny, brighter(darker) yellow
Ya, all of us in the raid group were amusing ourselves how difficult to identify a shiny zapdos. We concluded the colour of the legs is the most striking distinction between a shiny and a non shiny.

Hmmm.., next time I'll look out for father n daughter combo

PS.... I see you parked in the ocean art gym, well done ah
Pps....I see you in TMA too, congrats! WahHaha
Ocean Art was before 11am, trying to make as many blue gyms as possible for more balls during the raids. In fact I tried to take downTMA too before 11am but was not successful and I was at TMA waiting but no Zapdos !! They said it means this gymwill become ex-raid gym ! After 5 raids my bag is so full I really need to unload some potions and revives so that I have space to open gifts. If I donít open gifts some friends may complain ! Hence I fought at TMA .

But it’s true not everyone uses or knows these lock method tricks. This afternoon went to 1 ex raid the auntie next to me air ball 3 times because she just blindly spin the ball aggressively for like 10 secs then anyhow curved throw, didn’t see if the mewtwo is jumping or attacking. I helped her use the target lock And 1 gold razz and great throw later got it and she so happy coz it’s her first mewtwo.
Good gesture!
Ya, its true. To me, this lock method is the way to go in legendary raids. But a considerable number of trainers are not aware of this method. Hack, I have also seen aunties who throw straight balls only, never mind using the lock method. The downside of this lock method is it takes longer since it takes time for the mon to initiates an attack. One uncle I met some time back who noticed I was taking a long time capturing the mon after a raid commented he rather just aim and throw and let RNG determine the rest, especially if he don't intend to keep the low iv mon. In a way, he has a point as well. Time is precious, and if the mon is not going to be one he fancies, no point taking up the time to catch it. For me, even if I know from the cp it's a low iv mon, I'll still try my best to catch it. For the candies. :-)

Agree on the well done NN part.
Thatís the reason why I donít encourage private groups for such community events
