I’m getting 5 items per spin, also yesterday there were all kinds of pokemons in my local park, but today is a different story. It’s kind of disappointing.
Ghost – somewhat of an inverse bathtub curve, I you know your stats. Basically, the closer you get to the ends of the range, the options taper of very quickly. I’ve checked on the map, and 90% will be between 10%IV and 70%IV. It quickly fades after that, and anything greater than 95 is as likely as I am to stop eating this brie before my stomach hurts.
I confess to watching the map sometimes for 90+ dratini and larvitar. I don’t get out enough to be really have a robust batch, so I want me earned candy to go to something awesome. Yes, I’m a bastard. I know.
I haven’t ran into a Larvitar during this event yet. Would have love to build up my Larvitar candy even with quicker so I can get at least one Tyranitar before the event ends. 4x candy is great but I need a lot of candy and can’t walk that much so I can’t get enough candy by just walking alone.
I deduce that during events when they say more of a certain Pokemon it means two things. Either the Pokemon spawn more or more locations to find the Pokemon.Though sound the same, they are different.
When the Pokemon spawn more, you essentially encounter them almost everywhere you go. Examples of this were during the Halloween event; the Gen 1 starters event; most of the Water event, and the Grass event; most of the Adventure event. The Halloween event we we bombared with Gastly and others. Gen 1 event, Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle, and their evolves family everywhere. Water event, Grass, and Adventure, for the most part we were bombarded with various Water, Grass, and Rock types. There were exceptions that I will be mention below.
When there are more locations to find them, these Pokemon were usually found in small and sporadic areas. With the event, there are more areas to find them. However, you still have to be in those more areas to find them. They can’t be found anywhere. . Examples of this were the Valentine’s event; some of the Water event; and some of the Adventure event. Valentine’s event featured Chansey and Porygon. These are normally found Downtown and Midtown. The event increase them to inside the Beltway. People outside (like me) were SOL. For the Water event, the exception was Lapras. Lapras is normally found in Galveston. The event increase where they could be found, but not everywhere. You have to be in that area or you’ll be SOL too. For the Adventure event, the exceptions were Larvitar and Aerodactyl. These are rarely found, Larvitar 1-2 spawn every so often in different parts of town and Aerodactyl Downtown only. The event increase them, but again not everywhere. You have to be in the area or you’ll SOL.
I tracked down and caught an Aerodactyl nearest my house because like I said it was the last one I need for Gen1 Dex. It’s not the best, but I did it. I don’t have time to race around town at various spots to catch more. As far as Larvitar, since I already have a couple and a Pupitar, I happily walk that one to build up the candy instead of racing around town.
