    I really got crushed in that second fight. I knew I was going to lose as soon as I saw the Tyranitar/Machamp match up.

    I did my 5 battles with friends and 3 trainer ones and got 8 rare candy, a Sinnoh Stone and 1000 stardust. Worth doing

    Yeah, it seems to be mainly rare candy for me, too.

    I've given up battling when I see a giratina. If you're going to use it against me, play it last so I don't know.

    Ok busy day, managed to evolve Magikarp, taking me to the last Mew mission- gold Kanto medal (done), excellent curve ball throw (managed after a million tries) and 50 berry uses (easy). So I have Mew

    And I found the right quest to get Anorith, so I got Meltan too!!

    So... all my quests are done. I missed the Spiritomb one somehow :(

    Anyway yaaas

    So... what is everyone DOING? What are your goals at the moment?

    I mean raids sure, Pokédex fine (except I don’t think it’ll ever be finished unless they mix the region locking up)... medals? Hmm

    I’m a bit lost

    I think the main endgame goal is trying to catch them all and completing the Pokedex. You need to pay attention to the various events and Community Days as they let you catch things much more quickly to fill in the gaps in the Pokedex. The regional Pokémon are irritating but they do occasionally have events where a region locked Pokémon is available somewhere different for a few days.

    Also raids, battles and shinies...

    Are the regional switches common? I haven’t seen any :/

    I’m just hoping for some non-local friend trades

    Not really, no. You should know about them if they're happening, as long as you pay attention to the news section of the game.

    GOALS?

    I just flail around aimlessly wondering about the utter pointlessness of it all. Truly a case of art imitating life.

    What is everyone’s Pokédex looking like at the moment? I’m on 451/459.
    There was a point where they were doing loads of regional switching but it looks like they’ve stopped.

    Well it's not my fault if I haven't been across any of the gen 4 spawns (or they're always MILES away).

    403 caught, 430 seen.

    And looking at the dates caught it seems like there hasn't been an non-native regional in Europe since last July. I'd have thought it was more recent than that.

    And I'm here for a battle now if anyone else wants to get the rewards before this event ends tomorrow.

    I sometimes do the lower level raids where I can beat them on my own, but I never do the four or five star ones. I have no interest in talking to other people with my Pokémon Go.

    I'm quite good at doing raids I can solo. I just rarely do the higher 3* or 4* and 5* ones. If I go past one and there is a group having a go I might join in, but otherwise very rarely if at all.

    There is a group here who meet at 11am every Saturday and raid their way around town until late afternoon, but strangely I've never been tempted to join in.

    I never talk to anyone, just go somewhere crowded and it’s always filled up fast

    The only legendary I don’t have is Registeel. My last two weeks have been Regice and Regirock :(

    Oh hang on, how did you get so many? In weekly research? If so you must’ve hardly gotten anything else!
