My experience has been all right, but I am underleveled and should probably start fixing that. I'm actually kinda surprised there are so many Poke Stops around here.

I feel sorry for Nintendo's stocks. :( They're going to take the fall for Niantic messing up.

The stocks won't go any lower than they were when they started.

I dunno - before Niantic started this their stocks weren't at a base price that they cannot go below.

Anyone else notice that Pokemon are harder to catch? I had to use 4 Pokeballs on an Eevee last night.

I don't think shareholders care about how the game works, unless it starts to seriously detract from revenue and retention.

So after evolving 4 eevees, I'm pretty sure it's not the full name, but just the first letter, that determines its evolution. I have come to this conclusion because both BWEEEEEE and Beautee evolved into Flareons, and both Sparky and Shark Attack evolved into Jolteon.

I know the eevee brothers thing already lets everyone get whatever they want, but I kinda want to know exactly how it works, so if anyone else has confirming/contradicting evidence lmk :cool:

((I also think this would explain why the move set thing appeared to work for a while. If people named their eevees after the moves to keep track of them, then the 3 eevees might evolve into the 3 different eeveelutions for those people.))

E: welp nevermind this has been debunked by like 4 different people lmao

IN DIFFERENT NEWS, I HATCHED A PONYTA AND ITS NAME IS GUY FIERY AND I LOVE IT,

If any of you were planning to catch Mons at the Pentagon, please make different plans...
A Pentagon source tells Inside the Ring that the Defense Department has banned the playing of the mobile video game Pokemon Go within Defense Department facilities, over concerns the popular application could facilitate foreign spying.

How many Niantic employees does it take to change a lightbulb?

None - as soon as the lightbulb burns out, they just break it.
