Sounds like a common problem. These devs cant just blurt out what they're working on with big daddy (Nintendo) overseeing.

Bungie has the same issue with Destiny. Massive had the same issue with Division.

Fucking Diablo 3 has MULTIPLE community managers. No pass on this shit.

But, who are we kidding- Fandrex gonna Fandrex from now until the end of time.

The fact that you're even posting in a Pokémon thread proves I won. :umad

How about, "We're working on fixing the 3-step glitch"? They could call it an "error" or something to avoid using the word glitch. Just let people know they're aware of it.

Lost out on a Gastly just now to this shit. To say I'm livid would be an understatement.

I think I've said it before, but the thing that scares me most about Pokemon Go is that fact that it's rather easy to tell how rushed it is, that really this is just a step beyond beta. But look at how popular it is. Can you imagine what it's going to be like when they have a system that stays up, they fix the bugs, enhance it to allow trading or battling or release another region? I mean if we're at these levels of hype for what we have? When they fix it it's going to be insane. Of course, if they don't fix it soon they'll lose a bunch of momentum and a bunch of people will leave, but still. It's crazy.

It's a mobile game.  By the time they fix it, the popularity will have waned and everyone will have moved onto the next fad.

And then they'll add trading.

And then they'll add battling.

And then they'll release a limited-window legendary Pokemon.

And then they'll release Gen 2.

Using "fad" in the same breath as Pokemon is... contrary to history.

Will it remain as big as it is now forever? Nope. But it's probably not going to go away quietly any time soon either.

How long is the P&D thread here, again?

Exactly. So long as Nintendo doesn't take too long to fix their problems this is only going to get bigger.

With no major awards shows coming up or sports going on (sorry baseball), Pokemon Go has been a godsend to the people who need to tell everyone about what they're not interested in.

So this exists: https://pokevision.com

You can scan an area and see exactly where the Pokemon are and how long they'll be there. Since it's cheaty I'm refraining from using it, but I used it to test and confirm my suspicion that tracking is broken beyond just showing three steps for everything. The order of the listed Pokemon does not properly indicate how close they are to you relative to the other listed Pokemon.

TLDR: The tracking is broken worse than everyone thinks. Shit's junk.

FWIW, Nintendo's stock has doubled in price since the game's launch, and with the announcement of McDonalds Japan's official gym tie-in, their stock went up 10%.

Praying for zombocalypse so I can at least destroy the mindless shambling hordes instead of being socially required to route around them.

(Pokemon Y) The process to evolve Evee to Espeon is fucking annoyingly obtuse since you  have to raise the friendship ranking with it to a specific level then wait until you're in the daytime hours and then level Evee up once.

Looking this up. If you give Eevee a Soothe Bell, it'll increase the friendship stat by x1.5.

Good shit.

Is there a summary somewhere? Hate watching videos for info  :doge

- Trainer level cap is 40
- Egg level cap is 20
- Wild Pokemon cap is level 30
- Curve Balls and Accurate Throws confirmed to buff capture rate
- Future incubators might reduce KM needed to hatch eggs
- Moves have accuracy and critical hit rate
- Pokemon have capture and flee rate
- Move damage goes up with trainer level
- Pokemon get harder to catch as you level up
- Mew is "mythic," three birds are "legendary"
- Charge meter is filled by 0.5 by each point of damage dealt (super effective moves charge it faster)
- Level 39 -> 40 takes 5 million XP
- Level 1 -> 40 takes 20 million XP
- Pokemon have an evolution modifier and an HP modifier when they evolve, HP and CP go up a set amount for the multiplier
- Defending Pokemon at a gym attack every 1.5 seconds
- Master Ball does exist in the code
- Legendary Pokemon have a spawn right, but no catch rate (need Master Ball?)
- STAB from the main games is in GO

She talks a bit more "normally" in other videos where she's not as front and center/hosting as in those eating/gift ones. Dunkey uses a different voice in their videos vs his own where he's off-camera.

I don't mean to imply it's an act or anything just that like most everyone her "performance" voice exaggerates in some form. I notice this more with YouTubers probably because they're amateurs generally.

Personally, I know I change my cadence to be flatter when presenting or whatever vs. a personal conversation. It makes the deliberately bad jokes better.

I finished Pokemon Y after playing basically nonstop this weekend. I really didn't expect to sink into it as hard as I did. Forgot how much I enjoyed these games.

I want more but I don't want to burn out by immediately playing another right after then end up not wanting to play Sun/Moon when it comes out.
