    Any tips for something like this ??
    Do you remember the Tigers supporter 5n0r1ax from Sportal?  He disappeared the year Sportal started fucking up.  Bloke must be having a ball with Pokemon GO.

    Sounds like so much fun, especially for a young'n. You can probably do most of the evolutions in 1 lucky egg, I'm guessing they are Pidgey and what not? If it's new evolutions to the Pokedex then you can get away with 2 lucky eggs, use the first one on the new mons, have a guess at what you think the CP will be when it evolves, it's somewhat fun trying to guess, then you either get excited or disappointed with the result haha. I didn't seem to get many 10K eggs, then once I hit level 25ish I started to get them more often, maybe the game just got fixed not sure. Just chill out and have fun Smile

    Looks like we can play Overwatch for free this weekend, console only.

    https://playoverwatch.com/en-us/blog/20243911

    Think I'll give it a try.

    yeh might give it a shot myself, i've never been all that interested in team based shooters, but everything i've heard about it has been overwhemingly positive, being able to try it for free to see whether its something i can get into is perfect.

    I've been playing the BF1 beta and it's pretty damn fun. Although it's just the same as the other ones in a different skin - which will last me about 6 months before it shits on my shelf forever.

    Also +1 for the Overwatch free weekend

    Oh no the game is a total pain in the ass in competitive. It is fun if you have a group and either take it seriously or can just play for fun and mess about.

    What happened to pokemon? haha.

    but seriously, what tracking sites are people using now. Can't keep up!

    I think I have like 86 pokemons now and like 42 pidgeys ready to evolve. Might do that when I get home if my phone's battery life is up to it!

    Nothing happened, I'm still playing. The weather has been shit here in NZ so can't really get out. Looks like most of you guys in Aus have completed/close to completing your dex's. Theres not much else you can do really. Sure keep getting the daily coins/dust at gyms, keep leveling up your Pokemons, what else? Battling is going to add another big part of the game.

    Yeah I've stopped playing it purely for the fact there's nothing exciting for me anymore.

    If I could battle I might play again but I would rather the next gen, which I was originally against.

    Depending how trading works, honestly there is going to be a black market for traded Pokemon. I have a Dragon Breath/Dragon Pulse Gyarados (I'm sure some of you do too), plus a 100% IV Squirtle, they will be worth a bit.

    I caught a Snorlax in the wild.

    Had a night in Lorne and managed to catch quite a few down there. Good place for it!
    Up to 90 caught now, I think.

    Still A mile behind the eight ball.

    As I don't gym battle, I never get the coin so I think that limits me a fair bit plus I rarely spend any time on the game to be fair - I don't play "actively" as in go looking for particular pokemon, I just turn the phone on every now and then and look around or have it going while I'm at home.

    I just beat you in my first try by 10,000. At least you said you were bad at it.

    I got lucky with quite a few of them though, did some good last minute long shots and found street signs with some form of hint on them.

    Love that site, used to play it against my flatmate all the time.
    Problem is that he'll pick anything in Aus based soley on the trees/ground cause he's an arborist/botanicalist or something and just knows fucking 100% about plants n' shit.
