Has anybody else found themselves having greater luck than usual recently?

In the last 7 days I've:

1) Caught a 4* Frillish.
2) Caught a 4* Shadow Pinsir (my first Shadow 4*).
3) Hatched a 4* Togepi.
4) Hatched a shiny 4* Galarian Farfetch'd (my first shiny 4*).
5) Caught a 4* Altered Giratina (my first legendary 4*).
6) Caught a 4* Spinarak.
7) Caught a shadow Dratini which once purified became a 4*.

As well as this I've also caught three shiny Altered Giratina, another shiny Zubat, another shiny Magikarp and another shiny Alolan Grimer.

I don't think I've had a spell of good fortune like this in the whole 5+ years I've been playing.

Also, of the 4*'s I've obtained recently, I gather Togekiss, Sirfetch'd, Giratina and Dragonite can all be quite good for battling etc. Can anyone advise which leagues they'd be best for? Best movesets, etc?

That's really some crazy luck you've got going on there. :O

Togekiss works really well in MasterLeague. Giratina is really great if you manage to get it up to level 50.

So how is everyone doing on completing the National Pokedex? Me, I've caught all the original 151 Pokemon including all 18 Alolan forms. Though I still need the Galarian forms of Weezing and the legendary birds. From Gen. 2, I still need the regular and Galarian forms of Corsola, as well as the legendary Raikou. From Gen. 3, I'm still missing Torkoal, Kecleon, Tropius, Gorebyss, Relicanth, and the legendary Latias. From Gen. 4, I'm still looking for Pachirisu, Chingling, Mime Jr., Carnivine, the legendary Uxie and Mesprit, and the mythical Phione, Manaphy, Shaymin and Arceus. From Gen. 5, I'm still missing the Pansage, Pansear, Sandile, Tirtouga, Zorua, Axew, Mienfoo and Larvesta families, as well as Conkeldurr, Leavanny, Maractus, Sigilyph, Archeops, Vanilluxe, Escavalier, Accelgor, Druddigon, Bouffalant, Braviary, Hydreigon, the legendary Zekrom and Kyurem, and the mythical Keldeo, that's 34 total. In terms of available Gen. 6 Pokemon, I still need Pangoro, Meowstic, Aromatisse, Slurpuff, Malamar, the Binacle family, Sylveon, the Goomy family, Klefki, Noivern and the legendary Yveltal. I'm missing all Gen. 7 Pokemon save Meltan and Melmetal obviously, though I'm willing to bet that will change before next July. Finally, in terms of available Gen. 8 Pokemon, I'm still missing Runerigus and the legendary Zacian and Zamazenta.

I've only completed the Galar pokedex as of now. I still need an Articuno to complete my kanto dex. Still need a lot of Pokémon for other regions though.

I've been away from home for several weeks for work reasons, traveling internationally.

About the only notable things outside of getting a few steps further into a bunch of the old Special missions I didn't do anything with for a while include:

a 2* shiny Mr. Mime
a <1* shiny Pikachu (normal)

I've chewed through over 150 pinap berries collecting, and gained over two dozen friends from a regional subreddit for which the friendship bonus has been a real boon.

The community here is really limited, it seems so a lot of the 3+ raids go unbattled, and in the low 30s with my strongest team being an average of 2k I can't handle one on my own.

Been on a catching spree trying to get just a few Excellent throws to evolve my Farfetch'd into Sirfetch'd.

Naturally every single orange+ ring that I hit that's not an excellent, I catch.

And the ones that I think should be Excellent throws, aren't.

On the plus side, I picked up a shiny Pikachu from my kitchen this morning.
Also evolved a further 16-20 to add to my dexes. Got Kanto up to 138. Holding out for a higher IV (or shiny) Magikarp for Gyarados. Also need two out of the three leg birds.

So yeah, the December Community Weekend happened..

Saturday was alright, but I didn't play much. I got three shiny Gible, but nothing spectacular. I managed to evolve quite a bit of the ones I hadn't yet evolved when their exclusive moves first got debuted. Like traded lucky Gible's and a 98% Rhyhorn.

I really enjoyed the Community weekend. I managed to catch 22 shinnies! the highlight would be 3 Eevee, and 4 Roselia. I was unsuccessful at getting the exclusive move shadow Beedrill that I was shooting for however.

That's sad. To be fair, I didn't need the extra shinies at this point..

Wow, this thread hasn't seen much in months. So as part of the Season of Go, Professor Willow is lost somewhere in Ultra Space! Hopefully we can find him before the season ends.

Hatched a perfect Wailmer
Caught two perfect Cubone
Hatched a shiny low-iv Klink
Caught a shiny 0/0/1 Absol
Caught a shiny Dratini and Litwick, and a separate perfect Litwick on their respective community days

The raid scene near my office is pretty terrible so lots of Giratina and Guzzlord and others are simply timing out. I have yet to be part of a 5-star that succeeded.
