What are your goals during the rock event? Gonna make it?

My one and only goal this event was to walk enough to fully power up a Blissey, taking full advantage of the change in candy distance.  I would have to walk something like 18 km a day to accomplish that.  I’ve managed 55 km total so far, but now the work week is hitting (and rain), so I don’t think I’m going to make it.  What about all of you?  What is/was your goal, and how are you doing?

I did not really set a goal other than to maximize my Larvitar candy. So not having a specific goal means I cannot fail, can’t succeed either, I guess. Oh, and maybe get another beast Rhyhorn.

I just wanted to fully power my dratini to an awesome Dragonite, although at first it seemed like an impossibility, now however it seems like I am going make it.

Same goal as Ghost. I hit 125 candy last night, so my boys evolved my 95% larvy this morning. Bite and fire blast. Back to the drawing board. 🙂

I made my goal. Kept it under wraps just in case. Sometime during the course of the event, I came across this guy, caught or hatched but betting on hatched. Have been walking and catching and now maxed out until I hit Level 38.

Way to go!  You don’t even remember how you got him — you’ve clearly been working too hard.  I’m imagining you walking for hours, catching everything that comes within reach, eyes glazing over, mumbling to yourself, tossing endless curve balls (even in your sleep), and people giving you a wide berth on those trails.  Well, great job, even if you dropped below 1 Megadust to do it.

My goal for this event was to get 200 Shuckle candies so I can power up this bad boy. He’s more of a trophy but that’s ok. Pic coming up soon…

Dox – You are exactly right about Ghost dropping below his minimum. Lol

Lol, I like Shuckle as much as I do Murkrows, but congratulations anyway.

Jeez, that stardust.  Anyway, congrats on achieving your goal!  Power him up and put him at the bottom of gyms to piss off your teammates who want to prestige in.  Okay, maybe not.

I’m still wondering how a shuckle has a move called rock throw. It has no opposable digits. Or any digits for that matter.

My goals were:

✓ Catch at least one Aerodactyl.
✓ Earn enough Rhyhorn candy so that when Gen 4 comes around I’ll have a strong Rhyperior.
✓ Begin earning candy for 5KM buddies which require a lot of candy and therefore lots of walking normally. I said begin because I know realistically I couldn’t walk that much, but it’s a good start.

@seasrmar I bagged this one today, not very good stats at 7/9/7 51%, but it’s always awesome to see an Aerodactyl flying around.

My goal is to catch as many Larvitar as possible and not lose my job! I recently hatched a 96% guy and would love to grow him up quickly.
