The pokemon and the amount of pokestops I’m finding in Pasadena are crap. Any suggestions as to where to go?
The only place I’ve ever hunted in Pasadena is Burke Crenshaw Park near Pasadena Memorial High School. There is a pond with a trail around it with a decent amount of pokestops. I farmed for Magikarp there back when I was going for the Fisherman medal. The spawns were mostly garbage, but I did get a Snorlax and 2 Dratini there on various trips, and lots of Magikarp and Rattata (and Psyduck, Slowpoke, other commons). If I’m remembering correctly, it takes about 15-20 minutes to do a loop, and it works as a place to walk to hatch and catch a little while maintaining your items. I haven’t been there since Gen2 dropped, but I suspect the Magikarp spawn density took a hit in favor or Gen2 water commons.
For interesting spawns, your best bet is Galveston, downtown Houston, or check the Silph Road Nest Atlas for local nests.
