Aiyah I built 6 b/c and 6 b/se tyranitar some time ago lol

Lucky still got 4 high iv larvitar but not enough candy. Think I can aim for 4 full rock and 1 shiny this event. Like that my total tyranitars can overtake my dragonites

But now no more maps can’t drive around to catch larvitars like last time. Last time got maps so building 12 was possible

I'm excited about it.

I remember just when they announced Larvitar as the featured pokemon early this morning, they mentioned that the Tyranitar would have a charged move, kinda disappointed. But now that they are gonna give Tyranitar the Smack Down rock fast move, it's great indeed.

Once this move is confirmed, I probably gonna convert my Bite/StoneEdge Tyranitars to Bite/Crunch and just evolve a few SmackDown/StoneEdge Tyranitars during the Comm event. :o

To convert my StoneEdge Tyranitars, I will just use charged TM to change the charged move to Crunch.

To produce the SmackDown/StoneEdge Tyranitars, I will just evolve a Pupitar during the Comm Day hours, and use charged TM if necessary to change away Crunch or Fire Blast if necessary.

Tyranitar is not a full rock Pokémon - currently it lacks a rock fast move

If rhydon ( or its gen4 future) or tyranitar gets a rock fast move, high chance golem can really pack up liao


So sian

I had 100 iv golem but never power up. Now even less motivation

Ok lah to be fair can’t say that golem will be totally useless. If really need a rock team, if dun have enough tyranitars, still need golem to fill in but obviously it won’t be the best attacker. Tyranitar with smack down will be the boss of the rock team

Just like we know kyogre is the best water Pokémon but few will be able to afford 6 kyogres so will still need vapoeron gyarados in the mix

Can feel drastically ?

I have 2 kyogres and groudons- 1 max out 1 lvl 30. Using kyogre as example since both are full water moveset, yes my 4K kyogre can last longer in raid than the lvl 30 kyogre. Sure got difference. In a 15-20 man raid might not be that relevant but it did last longer. If the raid is smaller numbers kind like those 4-5 man kind then this additional fire power comes in handy.

Personally I like big numbers and I decided to go for quality over quantity that why I try to max out the best iv of most offensively strong Pokémons. Maxing out 1 legendary cost 270 rare candies and more than 250k stardust. It is expensive but I felt is worth it because in future will have stronger Pokémons so I prefer not to power up 3-6 of the same at lvl 30.

In the earlier days it is common to power up 6 dragonites or 6 tyranitars because there wasn’t so much options. Now got so many legendaries options.

Eg I max out 1 rayquaza instead of going for 3 lvl 30 because I already have 3 max dragonites and in future will get max latios and other dragons in gen4 so I feel no need to go for so many rayquazas

Kyogre case it is likely the best water type. But it’s ok I have 1 max as the water boss and another lvl 30. I also got 3 others 91-96 WB kyogres. Can bring in vapoeron gyarados to fill the remaining spots if a full water team is needed

Would u power up the following if the iv is very high, Eg 96 and above
And in what priority ?

Vap
Espeon
Umbreon
Gyarados
Hariyama
Raikou
Machamp
Gengar
Alakazam
Golem

And which of the above would u pump up beyond level 30 or even more than level 35, since there is some kind of breakpoint

Difficult to give correct opinion because i dunno what other Pokémons you have and playing style differs. Eg I dun gym a lot so I dun need 6 machamps etc. And previously I do use maps and telegrams so I did hunt after good ivs WB Pokémons to save stardust (eg machop)

Also personally I’m fan of big numbers so I won’t really power up or max out something that cannot hit cp 3000 - just my personal. Only 1-2 machamp, exeggutor, articuno, gardevoir, lapras being exception because either I need the typing or being personal fav (lapras)

I dun keep track of breakpoints because it changes against different Pokémons match up, if stardust and candies not a problem I will just max out if I like the Pokémon or power up until a number I like (usually above 3000)

1) Raikou - no1 for sure. Best electric now
2) Vap and gyarados - to fill up water squad numbers behind kyogres
3) machamp & hariyama - if u gym a lot. Personally I use fb mewtwo with other legendaries but I dun gym a lot
4) espeon & alakazam - not a big fan of glass cannons but they are useful in machamp raids. Aside for these I found little use
5) golem - only used during zapdos raid
6) gengar - not a fan of glass cannon despite his high Attack
7) umbreon - pokedex only. I see no reason to use stardust on a Low offensive pokemon

Worth it to power up a level 20 100% Wooboofat ?

So that can put in the gym to irritate people

At which level then will it be as irritating as a high level Blissey or Chansey in the gym ?

you always have the option to stop lol
although lets face it
shiny is just a gimmick that works for alot of people

if it doesnt work, you think knn will be milking it so hard?

every game has a lifespan, they will try their best to lengthen it; which is what shiny is doing for them
