Really, I’ve played this morning and didn’t see anything different?

Started at 3 CST. Just about every event starts at 1 pm pacific time, or two hours back from us.

I haven’t hatched anything as of yet, but I would assume 3x on that as well

Yeah it’s started. I’ve already gotten bonus XP a few times. Not a lot of powerful mons though.

Woo hoo!  I’m farming Swinub from my desk right now.  Wish they were easier to catch for that first-throw bonus.

 

The triple XP for catches is insane — haven’t hatched anything yet, so I don’t know what the multiplier is.  With lucky eggs added (which are on sale during the event), people are going to level up at a crazy rate just from catching commons.  It does seem like Niantic has been trying to even out the playing field in terms of trainer levels and available Pokemon these last few months.  Hopefully, everybody else can finally complete their Gen1 and Gen2 dexes (except unown and unobtainable ones).  I’m bummed I don’t have much free time this week — need to catch back up to Ghost!

TSR reports 5 times XP for hatching eggs.  Screw work, I need to get walking!  They’re also saying that Lapras is all over maps right now, so if you want one, get moving.  It’s probably going to be like Dratini in the water event and Larvitar in adventure week — they’ll flood the spawns for the first few hours, and then drop a lot.

Edit: This event should be a money-maker for Niantic in terms of both incubators and lucky eggs

I actually hatched a Chansey (first time hatching her) and it came with 5000xp…i’m flooded with 5k eggs right now

Congrats on the Chansey!  Now you just have to walk 500 km to level her up.

Currently walking my lonely 24IV larvitar, chansey will be next though barring any drastic changes.

 

I do wish we had multiple buddy slots though, I’d even pay for them..

Bastards ditched Larvitars and Poopitars for this event. Bastards. I’m still trying to get a t-tar with a sweet moveset and I need more candy.

Scratch that. I saw one on the map. Just less frequent – like dratini.

Swizzle.

Holy tacos. Don’t let Ghost see your dust count – he’ll be catatonic for another month.

Congrats on the good Arcanine!  I don’t think I’ve seen ANYTHING will good IVs this whole event, and I never seem to get good IVs for Growlithe, even when hatching.  That’s okay.  I doubt it will make any difference what the IVs are for Arcanine since he’s not top tier… the gym rework will make him relevant again, perhaps, but unless they do away with CP-based gyms altogether, a few CP points on the Arcanine won’t matter.  I hope.

 

I powered up a few non-top-tier pokemon (like Exeggutor, Kingdra),  in preparation for the gym rework, so I’m out of dust, too.  I’m sure I should have waited for the gym rework first, but I was bored.  Replenishing the dust would be easier this event if I weren’t always out of pokeballs.  Wish I had more stops near me!

Nice catch!! ya I’m loving the extra Growlithe candy, I will eventually use it on my 100IV Arcanine to completely max him out! I have 4 100IVers at the moment and when the time is right i’d like to max them all out…b/c why not?

Well, because you are supposed to. What’s the point of having the best base critter (100iv) if you are not turning it into the best possible (max out)? I did that for my ditto, my azumaril, etc.

 The other night when i was in the parking garage for work i looked down at my phone and saw a Shellder right next to a Lapras on  track at the same landwark. I got so excited i dont have a Lapras yet. So when i finally parked i looked at the map and i saw the Shellder but not the Lap so i watied and all the sudden my avatar took off in the other direction ARRGG. I guess i might have to use Houstonpokemap to get my Lap. I really dont like driving around down there.
