[QUOTE="Nomyt, post: 1606437, member: 27534"]getting close to level 19, and still no 1000 cp pokemon. Yet I see people who are much lower level having teams of 1000 cps. :/[/QUOTE]

Whoa, what? I'm about halfway between 19 and 20 and I currently have 6 pokemon above 1000 cp. My highest is almost 1600. Have you evolved any? That's how I got most of mine.

I've evolved a few. However I'm building up candies, and pokemon, at the moment. Will be doing a mass lucky egg evolution party when I get half way through level 19.

The next addition to Pokémon GO will be Buddy Pokémon. You will be able to pick your favorite Pokémon from your collection to become your buddy, opening up unique in-game rewards and experiences. Buddy Pokémon will appear alongside your Trainer avatar on your profile screen, adding helpful bonuses such as awarding Candy for walking together. You’ll also have the ability to change your Buddy Pokémon at any time.
Source: http://pokemongolive.com/en/post/buddy/

THIS IS HUGE!!!! If the candy rewards are decent, then you could feasibly evolve pokemon that you can't find in your area once you have one of them by walking around with it and being rewarded with candy. Also??? I CAN'T WAIT TO HAVE MY GAINT LAPRAS FLOP AROUND NEXT TO ME AT ALL TIMES. I'M EXCITED.

i'm stoked.

although i know it seems EXTREMELY unlikely that your buddy pokemon will also appear on the overworld map with you - since they specified the avatar screen -, for fear of it looking crowded or confusing or w/e, but. i really want it to??? i want lapras to follow me around at all times.

Thinking of nicknaming buddy Pokemon James Woods.

Got 5 Snorlax now. None with the moves I want yet, though.

I'm so thankful for the buddy system because I CAN FINALLY LEVEL UP MY LAPRAS SOME MORE ((i mean, gotta do **** tons of walking, but))

I hatched her from an egg and she was OP for a while but then I ran out of candies and haven't had any opportunities whatsoever to get more. Granted, I should be using it to slowly work toward the remaining 12 candies to FINALLY evolve a Venusaur, but. Lapras first. She is important.

So the halloween event has given those of us in Nowhere Colorado a little taste of what it's like to live in a city.

Still need to drive 20 minutes to get to the Pokéstop and to drive up to Cheyenne or down to denver to challenge a gym though....

I just discovered there's an authority you can call to remove PokeStops and Gyms off your property. My sister's workplace had to hit them up recently due to the increasing number of loiterers.

That must be a great job to have, erecting and razing imaginary buildings off a virtual map.

Now if only there was that authority you could call to add Pokéstops and Gyms...

Weather's starting to get nicer, and my buddy that I played with when this first started seems to be picking it back up. I may get into this again.
