Yeah new patch got released with a few tweaks to gyms and their prestige to smooth out the new way they run, it's not unfair at all in the end given the point is that teams are supposed to be actively losing gyms regularly and this is the best way to do it, decrease the rate at how strong you can make them and increase the rate of how weak you can make them. Patch also includes a daily bonus for eton mess so that's cool.

Also I've seen there's a patch note for the preceeding patch, no more Rattata or Pidgeys from eggs.

but I live in an area where one team is Dominant meaning 9/10 to own gyms, i will need to level them up rather then take them down, which I prefer anyway.
these spawns are ridiculous to go and catch 1 exeggute, (terrible IV's as usual) about 100m away I caught 3 Venonat and a Venomoth, then a Krabby and Pidgey on the way back. to give you some perspective, the edge of that circle where I was stood to catch it, would tocuh the edge of the circle from where I am now.
that is A LOT in such a small area.
did catch an 80% IV tentacool, which is very unusual around here, Evoled it into tentacruel and got Poison jab/Hydro pump.
needs some powering up, but that's a very nice thing to have.
also 865 CP Growlithe I caught yesterday, only 73% IV's but according to calculators would put it at 1998 CP :o :shock: when evolved.
not got the candy for that but.. holy O.O

Well, the new patch has certainly enticed me to start playing a little bit more again. I managed to catch a 1000+ Clefable today which was nice. Might finally use my last Lucky Egg, although grinding to level 25 will still be a pain in the angel delight.

pfft, I used the event to visit 2, normally rubbish nests, Struck Gold in the second nest, with an 801 CP 91% IV exeggcute :shock: first nest was growlithe where i was farming to evolve one.. then evolved the WRONG one :evil: (got an 80% one at 659 though so.. not all bad)
other notables, few abras a pikachu, a rhyhorn... a gym no one can reach without a bit of GPS luck :lol: (which had an open slot.. so i got something in there) a 1797 CP Slowbro with best moves (75% IV)
and the highest CP catch I have ever had... 2169 CP Lapras :shock:

Managed to hatch a 100% IV Goldeen which I'm happy about as I've been after a strong one for ages. Also hatched a Snorlax from my 3rd 10km egg with 97.8% IV's which I was also happy about.

I'm sure I'll find a use for my Seaking. Saw a Charazard in a gym so he could have a go at that if he ends up with water moves.

Seaking gets no water moves :lol:
and too many spawns around and no tracking is getting frustating, as I have missed out on Pinsir and Aeordactyl today due to them not popping up on the list for ages.

Is it though? I'm more inclined to think that eton mess's just not particularly broken in Go yet, comparatively at least

yes, it is.. some pokemon are better attackers then defenders, and a few High CP pokemon are actually fairly useless defenders
Professor Kukui's list of tankiest pokemon
with HP/Def stats combined to make 1 total
1. Snorlax
2 Lapras
3 Vaporeon
4 Muk
5 Dragonite
to prove how rubbish CP is... Exeggutor is #21 and Arcanine is #16

the overall defenders are:
1. Lapras (I hate that thing... magnaton is best counter... or a snorlax)
2. Dragonite (if you dodge you nullify it completely though)
3. Poliwrath (hits like a train)
4. Snorlax
5. Exeggutor

other notables.. Muk drops to 10. Arcanine is 8th (behind Venusaur) Vaporeon is 15th
charizard is 19th
Dewgong is 20th
oh and Hypno is 11th

only ones I see make an actual difference are Lapras and Poliwrath, Dragonite hits hard, but being flying type just ruins it.

That's not really addressing whether dragonite's overrated though? I haven't exactly seen people saying it's some unbeatable eton mess, only that it's really good which it is

given it has 3000+ CP and is less threatening then a 2000 CP Poliwrath... then yea.. its not that good.
lots of things are really good... but I would rather see it then Lapras, Snorlax AND Poliwrath.

so nest changes, a few new nests popped up last event it seems. some bigger some just a single spawn.
got a Diglett spawning on a long timer every hour in my local park... a Bulbasaur nest has popped up on the Silph road that didn't exist before, very near queens road tram stop.
and best of all, Piccadilly Gardens has changed from Squirtle to Pikachu :lol: (that's one of the mass spawn event new nests) as well as a juicy looking Charmander nest in Salford :shock:
and finally got my 50th Exeggcute candy to evolve my 801 CP 91% IV Exeggcute.
it is now 2168 CP with the best gym defence moveset (confusion, Solarbeam) might use it for that as there are a LOT of water users here.
also caught a 1805 cp vaporeon yesterday

Niantic have changed how the CP is calculated, so I guess that Dragonite debate can be mooted...

Special attack is now taken into account when calculating CP so might be worth checking all your Pokemon to see if they've dropped or raised in CP. The most notable Pokemon to benefit from the change are Alakazam and Gengar who now both have really good CP rates.

Ditto is in Pokemon go now. Mine came from catching a Pidgey. Also heard catching Rattata & Zubat work.

That's still 5300cp vs Dragonite, no amount of nerfing or buffing is going to change how weaknesses and resistances are important factors

i'm saying, the CP changes haven't changed anything.
damage wise yes... it is, but 1354 cp v 3027 it should be steamrolled by damage taken.
does make me want to power up a Cloyster now though, they got buffed :mrgreen:
