Team Valor Hangout Thread

    I started a few days after everyone else, and I'm feeling like I'm far behind because of it (Lv. 7)

    Valor has the Gym in my town center (which isn't located at the town hall, or the library, but at the gazebo, of all places), tried training against the CP 400+ Snorlax guarding it, got my sub-250 'mons destroyed

    at least I picked up a 338 Tauros on my way back, so there's that

    tbh I am at level 7 as well and I started 4 days ago XD I haven't done to much walking yet thats all to catch more stuff since i got work and all. I might do some walking tommorow though see if I catch a few things. I haven't even got a chance to battle yet since my local gym keeps freezing at the go part -_- I might walk over to another near by gym to see if I can battle.

    Well I decided to join Team Valor in order to prevent this from happening if I had chose Team Mystic instead.

    Alright I have one question and don't take this the wrong way but: How the heck am I going to take over gyms whos Pokemon have CP of 800 or higher when my strongest is Pidgeot who's only at 271 CP? Like how do I train in this?

    Bet you should get more XP to get a higher level and continue powering up your Pokémon. That way, you'll have a better chance at finding higher CP pokes.

    Happy to say we're holding down 1 of the 2 gyms at my college. the other one is constantly going back and forth. I am also holding a gym at the park by my house. It gets taken about every other day, then i'll retake it. just need back up on it so its not a one battle takedown.

    I decided to join Valor too! I'm a bit sad that people are arguing about the teams and taking everything way too seriously though... But Moltres was my favourite bird which is what made me pick Valor! My city is mostly overrun by Mystic gyms though but I'm still learning and haven't got strong enough pokes yet to challenge them! :')

    Greetings all. I joined Valor because I liked the leader's speech the best and I figured Moltres would make this the least popular team. I wanted to be a rebel but was very pleased I joined one of the two popular colors once I learned about gym training! Poor yellow players. I power leveled to 10 in 2 days and am taking it slower now. Not touching evolving until I'm sitting on 2 lucky eggs with great balls and a kit of Pidgeys. Amazed to see a few level 20 gym leaders less than a week after this game came out in the US.

    Hey, folks! As a heads up, by request, I've added member lists to all three team threads. :D Please feel free to check them over, and if I've missed you, listed you more than once, or put you on the wrong team, don't hesitate to send me a note somehow! (It won't be necessary to send a note if you join the thread after this point. Mod team will get to you eventually, don't worry.)

    Also, feel free to let me know if you'd find it helpful to order this list in a different way. I thought about putting it alphabetical order, but idk if anyone would really want that. XD


    Edit: And just to avoid double posting:

    Welcome to all the new members! 8D To NewSchoolBoxer about the gym leaders, ikr? Some people are seriously die-hard about this app, forreals. I kinda envy them, ngl, just because that takes mad skills to get that high of a level that quickly (even if you do buy things like lures and lucky eggs).

    I just went out for a really long walk, hatched a Ponyta which I'm really really happy about. I also got Exeggcute. I like how it's only the original 151, i'm not a "Gen 1"er by any means but it's nice to just remember childhood with the oldies! I took a gym for the team but by the time I'd finished in the park the original Team Instinct trainers who originally had it had re-taken it haha! Oh well!

    Also, is anyone having trouble with the tracking thing? I know it's supposed to pulse if you're heading in the right direction but we found a Seel and followed it whilst it was pulsing and then it just disappeared after getting down to 1 footprint? Maybe I've done something wrong...

    I never got to figure out the foot step thing yet tbh I mostly just keep walking and I run into it sometimes XD also I hatched a magenemite today ^_^ I was like yay! also I went to my local gym today and put a few pokes in for the team which one of them was my jynx but she got wrecked from someone that had a higher level then me -_-

    I put my jynx in at the time but she got sent back quick by a mystic >.<

    The pokemon on the radar will get reset by the server after a certain length of time if you haven't caught them yet. Hard to say if they are on shared timers or individual ones but I've felt that I had about 10 minutes when a pokemon first appeared on the radar to find it.

    I also like how only the original 151 are included. Keeps casual players from getting overwhelmed and perhaps the game designers from having a lot of pokemon that do the exact same thing. I enjoy the nostalgia and already having memorized what evolves into what.

    Wait...you can nickname Pokemon in GO? How is that possible? I can't find the option to do so anywhere.

    Also I was told that the casino near is doing something related to Pokemon GO. What's happening to this planet?
  14. Cometstarlight

    Cometstarlight What do I do now?

    You just tap the Pokemon's name and you're given the option to nickname.

    Team Valor controls all the gyms in our area which is cool but the gyms are too low lv for me to put my pokemon in the gym lol
  16. FairyWitch

    we did for a good hour as well but then got token over by the mystics -_- we need to get our turf back hopefully tommorow I can get a snag in if there levels are low so I can get some coins at least and have people join in to defend our gyms we conquer.

    also yes you can nickname your pokemon dragagle :3 you just tap the pokemon name and it gives you the option to rename it ^_^ I nickname all my pokemon :3

    So last night, a random Nidoqueen shows up right outside my house. Caught her from my bedroom. Add that to the fact that I finally caught another starter (bulbasaur), and caught a few more uncommon Pokemon, I'd say it was a successful day.

    Are there random times throughout the day when rare Pokemon just pop up? I've seen silhouettes before of lapras and tauros but have never been able to find them. Haven't seen them since. Can anyone confirm?

    Nidoqueen is an amazing catch. Saves you the 100 candy to evolve from Nidorina and risking what moves she gets.

    I do not believe that time of day matters in the sense of day versus night. I would have guessed to see Zubats more often at night but this has not been the case. I read a post on Reddit about finding Dratini that state it appears once every few hours each day near places that have water. Seems to match my experience. I've had rare Pokemon pop up that weren't on the radar. More likely (mandatory?) to happen under a lure or perhaps incense. I suppose you just have to be playing when the game's random number generator decides to spawn something nice.

    Never seen Lapras or Tauros silhouettes but I have seen Wartortle, Poliwrath and Beedrill each one time. They're all definitely on the rare side of things.

    I've seen silhouettes for things like Dewgong and Gloom in my neighborhood, which surprised me given that it's usually just the Rattata/Pidgey/Weedle axis
  20. Cometstarlight

    Cometstarlight What do I do now?

    I've seen silhouettes for Wartortle, Blastoise, Scyther, and Abra (well, those are the most interesting ones I've found). It stinks because I always get them at night when most places with pokestops are closed.
