The way I went from only having caught 4 Gible and 1 Gabite b4 GoFest to a fully maxed out 100% Garchomp and a shiny Gible (which is now a shiny Gabite with 75 candies missing for shiny Garchomp), hopefully the dragon week continues to be generous with a shiny Deino and 100% one :gaygacat5:

Hi everybody. I came here to vent. You may or may not know I stopped playing in March. I transferred all of my Pokemon (aside from Mew, Celebi and Jirachi which you can't transfer) and basically junked my game. I was done. And then Ms. Rona came to town and my plans for a new hobby were shot in the foot. So I went back to the game (Angry Birds is NOT the fun I remembered it being) about a month later in April. I've been playing casually, not hardcore  like I was known for. Much happier not spending 10 hours a day coordinating raids and walking the breadth of town. 

 

So Go Fest 2020 was a waste of time and money. Day 1 was plagued with bugs, it was so hot (87F) and sunny that my phone throttled so I had to stay in the shade when I could all the while avoiding people downtown. Day 2 was a annoying with the Team Rocket crap. The first few hours I was just battling grunts and adding new friends from Twitter so I could send 3 gifts (stupid me sent gifts to people before the event started). I think I battled 3 Team Leaders before I got to the part where I had to beat them for the quest.

 

Day 1 Shiny Haul:

Shellder (a few hours before the event started hehe)

Zangoose

Roselia

Pika Hat Charmander

Tangela

Unown O x2

Wigglytuff

Pikachu ( :biblio: )

Wobbuffet (gotcha caught, level 1)

Clamperl

Unown G (gotcha caught)

 

Day 2 Shiny Haul:

Snover

Alolan Marowak

Tangela

Durant

Qwilfish

 

100% Pokemon Haul:

Charizard from Catch 20 Fire Type

Giovanni's Persian (Purified)

 

Encountered and caught 18 Gible. No shiny. One 3*. Did a raid and that one was 11-10-11 :rip: Was hoping for my White Whale (technically a pink dragon) Dratini and although I encountered a lot on Day 1, a shiny alluded. 

 

The Shadow Birds and Mewtwo were okay. Powered my Mewtwo to the 3000's before I ran out of candy. Glad I read not to purify them, especially Mewtwo. I didn't have a single Charged TM on me so after I was done with the Team Rocket quest line, I had to bust my ass in the battle league. One round gave me a Sinnoh Stone :rip: and I ran out of battles leaving my poor Articuno with Frustration. 

 

So yeah, Go Fest was a bust at worst and a letdown at best. I've been waiting for 3 years now to experience the shiny extravaganza that Go Fest has become known for and I ended up with roughly the same number of shiny Pokemon people get during a single Community Day. Team Go Rocket's stuff could have and should have been done a few weeks ago. The Pokemon I was really looking forward to getting shiny (Dratini, Gible) didn't happen. 

 

One last thing, they need to speed up Raid invitations. It takes like 50 seconds before the invite screen goes out. And people should make a habit to not back out of an empty raid until at least the last 10 seconds. It is nice that Passes don't get consumed for entering the lobby anymore. That should have been the case from the very start. I'd like at least 2 dozen raid passes back Niantic!

Yeah this weekend was very rough

 

i had friends who got less than 5 in total for both days 

 

a friend of mine literally got two shinys in total for both days, he quit da game yesterday at 8 😂 

 

I liked da first day of rotating habitats they should’ve kept it for yesterday 

 

oh and what a cluster **** da friends list was da first day, couldn’t access it for hours

One of the reasons I stopped playing was because Niantic isn't some broke ass company. They're raking in massive amounts of money yet they can't seem to rent out more server bandwidth or not **** up longstanding features when an update comes along that has nothing to do with said features. The update before last, or the one before that one, kept crashing. And if they have the server bandwidth, they need better software. There is no excuse for such a crappy experience from an establishment and well-funded app.

 

The only real bright spot of Go Fest for me was my second shiny Tangela. It was a 96% which was awesome since my wild shiny's always have crap IVs. 

 

I was also expecting more enthusiasm for Dialga and Palkia, seeing as how this was their first time in raids in well over a year.

My shiny haul

 

Day 1:

Houndour

Torchic

Tangela x2

Bulbasaur with a visor

Jigglypuff

Feebas

Pikachu

Unown G

Magikarp

Snover

Alolan Exeggutor

 

Day 2:

Magikarp

Qwilfish x3

Squirtle with a visor

Unown O

Durant

Tangela

Alolan Exeggutor

Alolan Marowak x2

 

So 23 shinies overall, not too bad. I went into the event really only wanting a shiny Alolan Marowak and ended up getting two in the last hour on the second day :deadbanana2:one had great PVP IVs so I powered that one up to under 1500 for great league. The other one had ****ty IVs so I transferred it to my copy of Shield through Let's Go and Home. Stuffed her full of candies to get her to level 100, golden bottle capped that bitch, used an adamant mint, EV trained her, and now she's a competitive ready Pokemon :gaycat1:

Good news for GoFest ticket holders:

 

Quote

Following problems that hit during 3 different hours of Pokémon GO Fest 2020 this past Saturday, Niantic have announced the make-up event. On August 16th from 11am to 2pm local time, ticket holders will be able to get Pokémon from GO Fest again. Like GO Fest, there will be 3 habitat, rotating between Fire, Water and then Friendship every hour of the event. It also will give a Free Box of 2 Incense and 2 Remote Raid Passes to all ticket holders and will offer Rare Candy from gifts and Incense will be more efficient.

So I invited this new friend I made the Go Fest task to some Rayquaza raids yesterday. The motherclucker got a shiny at the second raid. Like I'm happy for him, I guess, but it really grinds my gears when other people benefit from me being nice while I get a green Rayquaza with bottom of the barrel IVs

Another failed attempt at getting Rayquaza. No matter how many golden berries and curve balls I threw, the ball rarely shook more than once. I’m fuming :weeps:

So shiny Numel isn't a thing yet, right?  Otherwise, I can't explain how I just caught my second shiny Taillow (anybody want it?) but somehow, 400 Numel later, still no shiny  :michael:

Got 2 shiny Rayquaza yesterday back to back. My 3rd for the day was my best of the new batch but it was green. Got a shiny Dratini from the wild, FINALLY. Got another shiny Koffing from James. 

 

Did I brag about my shiny Ekans from Jesse? Can't remember. Anyway, it was a 100% shiny shadow. That's right, a shiny, a hundo, a shadow...a SHSHUNDO. That was very neat.

You're back playing :hug:

 

Anyway, this event has been cute but the only shinies I've got are Dratini and Trapinch which I already had :katie:, also shiny Deino is a myth, isn't he? I haven't seen anyone posting about it :deadbanana:
