I learned a few things over a weekend of hard hunting I thought to share with my brothers and sisters-in-arms. Most of you probably already know some or all of this but tweaking a little bit, the old adage that if you have a question, then others in the group probably have the same question, I thought I would put them down on paper. Here goes:
Houston traffic sucks regardless of the day or time.
The instant you start to think you might need to go to the bathroom, said traffic will instantly tie up right after you pass the exit.
Not everyone staring intently at their cell phone while walking around is playing Pokemon Go.
Montgomery County Sheriffs Deputies do not like you being parked in from of a Sprint store spinning and catching at 1:30 in the morning.
The spouse is not real keen on you spinning and catching at 1:30 in the morning.
If you see a car pulled over in a lot by a stop, gym or mon location, it is either a fellow player or a dealer of illicit goods. Neither is really contributing to society at the moment.
I have left nothing in Freeport I have to go back and get. Okay, maybe Heracross if it is proven to be there somewhere.
Now, on to game specific learnings. Even though we are in our own version of The Amazing Race to gold medal mecca, I am a team player and so feel the need to pass on some hard earned wisdom. All of which is likely common knowledge to most of you.
Did you know that when you select a mon to catch and it goes from being in the “field” to being on your screen, little symbols representing the medals said catch will contribute to flash for a few seconds? I have begun to take note of this as I am catching rats or fish in order to save resources/time. If they do not advance the baby/big boy medals, I have begun to skip them. To me, a better allocation of resources.
There are only two things worth spending coins on, incubators and lucky eggs. If you are playing hard, eggs effectively cuts your advancement to the next level in half if that is important to you. Incubators are obvious.
All resources in the game; balls, berries, potions, even stardust (which pains me to admit), whatever, are renewable. Do not be afraid to dump stuff to keep your bag from getting full. You can’t get eggs or special items when you bag is full.
