I had a lot of luck recently in Go. Got a shiny Machop, a shiny Mareep and some other Pokemon.

Managed to catch a perfect Fennekin yesterday. I'm only a few candies away from having it evolve fully for my second one.

Still stuck on Frogadier.

I caught all of the Hoenn starters over the weekend along with Snorlax. I also sent a few over to Home. I am still not a huge fan of the game myself but I will occasionally open it up and catch Pokémon.

So I did two Groudon raids the other night and scored two back to back shiny Groudons! I also caught my Rayquaza. He wasn't shiny, but I have him for my Pokedex now, so it's all good.

Today I caught a shiny Illumise in a random encounter.

Edited to add that I just hatched an shiny 3 star Alolan Grimer.

I managed to get 2 shiny Sneael from the timed research event: one that I transferred to my Sword team & one that I made my new buddy in Go.

Today is pretty good in terms of finds. Started off by catching a Shiny Tentacool, then Two Shiny Sneasel. Evolved one of the Sneasel to Weavile and plan on trading both other to Home for their Shiny dex entries.

Try to understand.
Man, I was a Smeargle away from getting the completion medal for Johto, but the game decided to crap out on me twice when I got Smeargle to photobomb, but it wouldn't appear in the overworld. Now the event has expired, even though I would have been able to do it if Go worked properly.

Got 3 shiny Scyther in a row from Jesse. Now James finally decided to contribute and I got a Shiny Pinsir.
The Sneasel event also got me a 3star Shiny Sneasel, so ow I've got me a bright & shiny Weavile.

After a long time, finally got a female shiny Shinx.

I'll probably stay hunting so I can get at least 2-3 more but I'm glad finally getting one on PoGo

I know some people are VERY against this line of thinking, but....

Lunar New Year event is currently going on in Pokemon Go and one of the first requests was to Catch 7 Fire pokemon....and the Fire Starters have increased appearance rate.

........Kinda seems like points in favor of the 'Fire Starters based on Chinese Zodiac' theory.........

That’s not theory, that’s fact.

I would bet it wasn't meant to be like that, but the directors are probably taking it into account now or at least accepting that the pattern exists since so many fans love that theory. Imo, seems to be newer fans who mostly like that theory, but I always thought it restricted pokemon creativity by only having a small pool of animals that the fire starter can be based on, so i've always thought it was dumb.

I've always actually liked the idea (been playing since Red Version). It may be a little restrictive, but the creatures of the zodiac all kinda lend themselves to good Fire type designs.

I mean, I'd love for the next starter to be a Fire Ox.

Man, it seems no one else in my neighborhood wants to help me with those 3 and 5 star Raid Battles, what's up with that?
I can help! I posted my friend code in the Go Friends thread. I have 4 remote raid passes to use up.
