Yes, I still play this. It motivates me to walk or bike and explore new areas.

They just added friends, trading and gifting. While trading won't work unless we're within 100 meters of each other, we can send each other gifts full of items and eggs.

Will also be fun to see what happens with the new Switch game as it's supposed to be linked.

If you want to add me here's my info:

Gifts build friendship levels so trading costs less star dust. Not gonna mean much for us since we'll likely never meet. But it does give out free items like Pokeballs, revive crystals, potions, stardust and eggs. Not to mention I enjoy seeing the postcard format where it shows what pokestop you got the gift from.

I started playing again at the end of last year, around the time they added Gen 3, but stopped again back in April, just got burnt out again. I progressed from level 36 to 38 in that time, and caught a few legendaries including Mewtwo, so that was cool. Even though I'm not playing anymore, I've been adding friends anyway, just in case I ever play again in the future, since your benefits get better the longer you've been friends, or something like that. Here's my code if anyone wants to add me:

They show how hard the battle is. I can easily take levels 1 or 2 on my own. (1 or 2 faces) 5 is the hardest.

I need to get some people to send my son some gifts, would you all add him? His number is: 071210789685

He's 4, has autism and loves the game but doesn't have wifi/internet to use the pokestops/gyms. I tried tethering but it won't connect like it used to, I'm thinking something is broken in the ipad (it's pretty old.) So he's running short on pokeballs and could use some gifts to replenish them.

You could log into his account on your phone to spin stops.

If you want to give me the login info I can log in to his account while I'm at work and spin every few minutes, since there's a pokestop within range of my desk. It's easy to burn through resources pretty quickly in this game, so I imagine it would be hard to keep him stocked just from gifts. They really need to put pokestops everywhere, it's stupid that you're basically screwed if you don't live in a city or close to a hot spot.

Oh I know, it really does! Ok sure that would be awesome of you. We don't live near one and it's storming so the park is out of the question today (and he's melting down over not being able to play.) I'll PM you the info.

Yeah it's no problem for me. Back when me and my whole family were playing I would have 2 phones on me, spinning for 2 of our accounts at a time, on any given day.

Thanks! Just touch your icon on the bottom left. Under Friends tab, add a friend. From here you can send gifts to people. Gifts come randomly from pokestops.

I went ahead and spent $10 and just loaded him up with some poke balls for now. He was having a meltdown and with my surgery in the morning I didn't want to deal with it. So he should be good for a day or two lol.

I really hate that you need multiple people for 4/5 star raids. Part of the reason I quit playing this last time around was because the majority of the PoGo players in my area are extremely annoying. At this point in the game, I have pretty much everything I could ever want. The only thing I would keep playing for is to keep getting the new legendaries they add to raids, but I have no interest in raiding with these people ever again. I even had an EX pass a couple weeks ago, right near my work, and choose not to go just because I didn't want to have to see all of them again.

I got 6 shinies. One has sunglasses and is in the 80s IV. To get sunglasses you had to retrieve the research quest from a pokestop. Lots of people were confused by that and didn't get any with sunglasses. So I got plenty with sunglasses for trading, but only one shiny and I'm keeping him.

Oh and it was pretty cool to see cars slow everywhere and over 1000 people out at my park near my house. All playing Pokemon Go
