    I think I only got just over 100 of the original ones and now there's loads more. I switched on today and every pokemon I caught was a new one. I may well get sucked back into this game again :lol:

    Oh and I hatched a baby Jynx (can't remember the name) and thought it was cute, much cuter than its drag queen evolution :rofl:

    I went out last night, but only caught one before the app crashed. And I had a lucky egg going too. :wuzrobbed

    I've caught 5 new ones from my desk at work throughout the day :lol: Ledyba seem to be everywhere, along with Sentret, I also caught a Piloswine (evolved swinub) and he looks like Cousin It from Adams Family :lol:

    I got Cyndaquil, Totodile, Sentret, Hoothoot, Ledyba, Chinchou, Natu (those are everywhere, it seems), Mareep, Marill, Aipom, Sunkern, Wooper, Snubbull, Girafarig, Teddiursa, Houndour, and Octillery. All have crappy IVs and CPs but they're in the dex! Oh and I evolved a Crobat, Espeon and Blissey.

    Apparently you can catch Togepi and Togetic in the wild now...not sure about the other babies.

    And I hatched a Vulpix. Whee!

    I got a Swinub and a Furret just from my apartment...looks like there are a lot of Swinubs in my neighbourhood. I'm looking forward to seeing what else is new when I'm out and about this weekend!

    I was still about 30 away from completing the 1st gen...I do have a Gyarados, but none of the other more rare ones.

    A Togetic spawned right in front of me and it took me some 20 tries (not kidding) for me not to catch it :mad:

    That happened to me once but when the app came back, the Lucky Egg was still going. Didn't that happen to you? Now I'm going to be paranoid about it!

    I have caught 1315 new 'mons since I upgraded the app yesterday.

    Plus I have new kinds of fruits along with raspberries. Does anyone know which ones are stronger or if they are all the same?

    The egg came back but the game kept freezing and crashing. So it was pointless to keep playing.

    I finally got a furret yesterday!

    Pinapps give you two extra candies if you toss them before you catch your Pokemon. The banana-shaped ones make a Pokemon calm down or something if you have a fidgety one. Haven't tried that one yet though.

    I've noticed that some of the Pokemons now do this sideways movement so I assume the banana-ish thing keeps them from doing stuff like that.

    I totally forgot to walk up the road to my nearest pokestop yesterday for my 7th day streak :duh:

    I'm enjoying playing again and seeing new things to catch, though i'm finding even low CP ones are taking 3-5 balls to catch, if not more.

    I just leveled up thanks to all the new Pokemon.
    But Blissey is a pain to defeat in the gym. I've timeout twice during a fight with a high level Blissey in a gym. He's the last one standing too. :(

    On Saturday, I saw not one Pokemon to catch when I was not driving and so reset to Day 1 while I hit Pokestops so now the two are no aligned! This drives me crazy even though it would silly to not hit both for 24 hours to reset them to be together.

    I am sure @PrincessLeppard will be pleased to learn that I just hatched a Snorlax from a 10km egg. :saint:

    So what's the deal with the two different evolutions some of the Pokemon have? The second one is shaded pink and I've noticed that they all need some different thingymajig in addition to get the X number of candies? For example Porygon. I've just gone through a bunch of pokemon and that's the only example I can find even though I thought i'd seen more of them!

    Gloom and Slowpoke are two others.

    I've only received a special item once :(

    Where do you get the special items from? Is it just pokestops?

    Yes, you get them a Pokestops. You need them to evolve the Scyther and the Onix as well as the alternate forms from Gloom and Slowpoke.

    Yes, pokestops. Supposedly more common but not guaranteed in the 7 day spin. The only one I got (that I used to evolve Porygon) was on a 7 day spin.

    I think Poliwhirl is another that needs an item.

    I have three special items - Sun's Stone, King's Rock and Metal Coat.

    Anybody else catch a Pikachu with a party hat?

    A bird shat on the screen of my phone this morning and I immediately hatched a Pichu!

    I haven't seen a Pikachu since the special started (and is now over). I am quite upset about this!
