I might actually turn it on again after not playing it for two months.

I did the same earlier. I saw a Mr Mime and two Porygon on the pokestop tracker thing.

I couldn't be bothered walking to them.

It's easily the biggest update anyone's been waiting for, definitely enough to at least get me back into it for a bit at least with so many top tier mon in Gen II. Still leaves everyone wondering what's happening with the legnedaries, if they're hoping to capitalise on any hype for the game with them then that boat's pretty much off on the horizon by now.

Guess there's a good reason to be catching Zubat now...

According to Serebii Eevee evolution is still random though and I don't know if they have any easter eggs that let you evolve one into Espeon or Umbreon yet. Similarly getting Hitmontop could be a pain.

EDIT: Never finished the Gen I Dex here though.

The overworld music has also been changed to a remix of Route 38 and 39 from Gold/Silver, or it might just be hybrid of music.

Just seen catching evolved pokémon also apparently yields more candy so that's neat I guess

I mean pokémon has always had issues with broken stuff so no surprise there. Blissey was never not going to be a broken piece of eton mess, that's a bottom line there, Espeon is somewhat surprising though.

The CP update made Special Attackers get high CP, so as soon as they did that I knew Espeon was going to be pretty powerful. Saved a decent Eevee for the Gen II update, all I need now are enough candies and I should have a pretty strong Espeon.

Given base stats are used to determine CP it's no surprise that something like Blissey is uber OP. But then, Chansey is pretty rare to begin with, I still haven't found one.

Spotted a gym with a 3000+ CP Tyranitar on it.

How do people have a Tyranitar already when Larvitar has only been in the game for four days? Did they seriously manage to find enough Larvitar to get 125 Larvitar candy in that time?

Just finding a Tyranitar is always a possibility

Apparently the end of my road is infested with a billion Swinub according to my mum who still plays a lot.

I like Swinub, it's cute.

I get all excited when I see Murkrow and then realise that Honchkrow didn't appear until Gen 4.

The vast majority of Gen 4 evolutions of previous things were pretty disastrous.

From a competitive standpoint though, things like Gliscor, Togekiss and Mamoswine were some of the best Pokemon in the game though and they still have uses in high Smogon tiers today, even if Togekiss' type change makes it less viable due to having more weaknesses.

Then again, when Gen 4 comes out every gym is going to have a Garchomp on it.
