There is actually a 'meme' of sorts where people are flipping gyms to their teams and then just leaving Magikarps in the gyms they take

I want to do that, but have them be like, level 1000 Magikarp. Is that possible? Is there a cap for weak or unevolved pokemon?

Magikarp's CP caps at 200, unfortunately.

Well, today, the local Gym was under Instinct control. Note my use of the past tense. After several tries, I took out their Nidoking and Nidoqueen, and claimed the Gym for Team Valor. As of right now, Flareon's still in there, alongside two Vaporeon and an Exeggutor. Hoping this time the Gym holds up for a little while, so I can at least claim a few defender bonuses. I'm so close to actually being able to afford stuff with PokéCoins!

Stocked up on even more stuff at PokéStops, but the catching was good today, so a lot of my Poké Balls got used up. And wasted in certain cases... Oh, and I got a few Eggs hatched. a 2km Egg gave me a Spearow, but a 5km Egg gave me my first Growlithe, and it's got decent IVs to boot! Also caught another Magikarp, got a few more Magikarp Candy stowed away. Getting there, little by little.

Gaining experience at a decent rate. I might even get to hit level 17 sometime tomorrow if all goes well.

Pokémon Go has been having that "unable to authenticate" error the past week now.

It worked once in that time frame but never again.

Anyone have a workaround?
I've Reinstalled, connected to at least 20 different WiFi Hotspots, Updated PG, reverted to an older version of PG, but nothing is working.

Using a Samsung s4 if that means anything.

All of my direct bosses and half of my coworkers all play it. We have a Pokestop by the break room, too, so people frequently take a pit stop to spin and win... and three more on the other side of the building that people go out to put lures up on during lunch.

I don't see anyone ever banning Go here. Even the higher-higher ups are into it.

Nothing huge happened today. Finally was able to get Haunter and Nidorina in my Pokédex- finally caught another Gastly, and also hatched a Nidoran♀, both of which gave me just enough of their respective Candy to get some evolutions done. Stocked up on Poké Balls as best I could, let's hope they last me at least until tomorrow. Oh, yeah- the local Gym? Team Valor controlled, but full. Had to level it up, which involved numerous extremely close training matches between my Flareon and the Gym's Hypno. Finally was able to leave Flareon there. I actually now have enough PokéCoins to afford either an Incense or a Lucky Egg, but I'm considering holding out until I can get enough to buy more Poké Balls- those tend to be the more pressing issue for me.

Very close to leveling up. With any luck, I'll be level 17 by this time tomorrow.

Minor update- I have not only hit level 17, but have also, in the process, registered Wartortle in the Pokédex!

So it looks like the Articuno that someone claimed to receive was real. Niantic just confirmed it on their Facebook, and said it was done so 'erroneously', and that they have removed the Pokemon from the account.

Didn't post about it sooner because I was vehemently against the idea that someone was given Articuno or managed to catch it, arguing that is was a re-skin hack instead. Time to eat my shoe (but really, how Niantic? Disgruntled employee decide to fuck around?)

Have fun from here on out, I just hit 23, and it took me two and half weeks to get here from Lv 17.

Freaking finally caught a Bulbasaur! First one I've seen since the Bulbasaur I started with! Still have yet to find a Charmander.

Went out on the city tonight and boy was the catching good! Annapolis is Pokestop Heaven, so I restocked on balls a ton, and evolved some stuff to hit level 10 and get over halfway there. Hatched one of my 2k eggs and welcomed a baby Charmander into the world! And-FINALLY FOUND A DRATINI, literally the first of many things caught. Also have begun the Magikarp Travail. City Dock is a nest for those things, especially when the stops are lured, so drop on by if you need to snag some fish. Had a >300 Tauros run away on me, but no big deal as I got a >300 Fearow not long after anyhow. He doesn't quite match Crazybarks, but hey, it's not too awful. All in all it was a good night to PoGo out on the town.

I found a gym defended by someone who was Level 32. That's got to take dedication.

Also, how do I determine which of my pokemon to transfer vs. which to evolve? Should I just evolve the highest CP of each one?

Nice! I've gotten that myself, and it currently says I have... *checks* ...137 Poison-types out of the necessary 200 for the next medal there.


In other news, I haven't even done my walk for today yet and already things are looking beyond awesome because guess who found a SNORLAX this morning! I was down to just two Great Balls, so I was legitimately concerned that I might not get it, but I used a Razz Berry, threw a Great Ball, and got it just like that! Moreover, its IVs are extremely promising. Not absolutely perfect, but good enough for me! It's got anywhere between 77.8% and 80% perfection. CP is 1135, making it my second strongest next to Flareon. Finally, got something that stands a chance against those pesky Vaporeon!


Speaking of Flareon, if he can hold out in that Gym for another three and a half hours, I get more Stardust and PokéCoins!

You can go about it two different ways.

1, transfer all of the lowest CP Pokemon of that species (this is easier and usually what I do)

OR

2, you can use this IV calculator to determine each Pokemon's IV (this is a longer process and requires more dedication, however, you may discover a Pokemon with lower CP has perfect IVs whereas a higher CP Pokemon does not).

Personally I don't care much about IVs in PoGo, but there are some situations in which I do. For clarification: When I finally evolve my Magikarp, I'm going to pick the one with as close to perfect IVs as possible so that I can eventually power it up to a perfect Gyarados. If my highest CP Magikarp doesn't have perfect IVs, it may tap out its max CP a few or serveral hundred CP lower than its max potential. However, if the Pokemon you evolve doesn't have the highest CP but has the best IVs, it will evolve to having a lower CP still... but its maximum potential overall is going to be better (sometimes significantly). So it more or less is going to require more dedication to power it up over time.

So, I only really do it with Pokemon I really care about; I'm perfectly content not having perfect IV Pokemon for the majority of my collection.

>Team Instinct took over the local Gym

>First three Pokémon they got in there are low level Venomoth, Ivysaur, and Pinsir

Oh, Flareon's gonna have fun with this one. And now I got Snorlax for backup, too!


Oh, yeah- my walk today. Nothing special. Did manage to catch a Slowpoke and a Voltorb, added two new things to the Pokédex, but honestly, I think that Snorlax from this morning set the bar so high there was little hope of topping it. Caught another Magikarp, this one with actually decent IVs- my future Gyarados, I'm thinking. Either way, that's more Magikarp Candy stowed away for that fateful day.
