Lotad Research day
#123

Got 4 Castform and a single Lotad, kinda cool event but I was half-sick so I went home early


#124


RD has now officially ended and I got a booming total of 21 Shiny Castform but only 3 Shiny Lotad. Will share the story about the three Shiny Lotad, which was frustrating and funny at the same time, either later today or tomorrow.


#125

I completed 3 Lotad research quests for 3 regular Lotads. I still got 3 more quests in my queue. I caught 2 shiny Castforms. @Jaxxon8 completed 7 Lotad tasks and got 7 regular Lotads. He has 2 tasks left in his queue. He caught 3 shiny Castforms.


#126

Amazing. I got 6 Shiny Lotad, 7 Shiny Castform, 1 hundo Lotad (non-shiny) and 1 hundo Nidoran-Male. It was a fantastic day.


#127

I did good


#128

3 shiny Castform, 1 shiny Lotad, 1 random shiny Murkrow. Still tikme left out here though. :smiley:


#129

Updating mine to say that I caught 13 Shiny Castform. Still have only 6 Shiny Lotad, but I have three quests primed to claim after midnight tonight, so it MIGHT increase.


#130

I got out for the last 4hrs and got 40 Quests done all up. I banked all the Quests for catching later so so I could take more time and Pinap them.
The only Quest I was trashing was do a Raid Quest.
I consider the day a fail for me as at the end of the 4hrs I had seen 0 Shiny Lotad. Upon catching everything banked I found one which was the 5th one for the day and I never got to see as I quickly clicked 2 of the compled Quests and it only showed me the non Shiny one on screen.
Not quite as Salty after that but still consider it a fail as 1/40is very poor.
Got 6 Shiny Castform out of it as well.
Will cull the clean up list a bit further later.

#132

@Jormdeworm, wow 21 shiny Castform, is your weather partly cloudy so Castform is boosted?

And you must have played long hours


#133

This RD is OK for me, 1 shiny Castform, 3 shiny Lotad out of 60+ quests done, and 2 weather boosted Giratina, the 2nd quest I completed was shiny Lotad and the best shiny Lotad is 98%

It was Cloudy and changed to Rainy after ~4 hours. And 15 minutes later it changed back to Cloudy. And another hour later it was Sunny. After the event, it changed to Partly Cloudy and I kept on seeing normal Castform.

According to my phone I’ve played the game for 5 hours and 20 minutes in total yesterday, that’s including maybe 10 minutes after the event. And another 10 minutes trying for Smeargle.

It was a great event… I didn’t think I’d be able to play that much, but some of our construction stuff got delayed, and I allowed myself the first 3 hours of the event like I’m used to.
You know, I like to be well-prepared, and I made a list of Pokéstops in town (52, but I think forgot 4 or 5 rather remote ones) so that I could just work through it.
In those 3 hours I could get though 30 stops and their quests. Mainly those downtown and in the park and some on the way. I got myself one shiny Lotad, one shiny Castform (I was quite happy to see the normal form in all weathers…) and a shiny Makuhita :face_with_raised_eyebrow:
At 6pm my husband suddenly suggested playing the remaining 2 hours. So we went out and visited some more stops. About 14 if I counted that right. We got 2 shinies for my husband, and 2 Lotad and one Castform for myself, so I ended up with what I wanted - one for every evolution stage.
With 44 quests done in about 5 hours I might not be the most efficient player, but I think it’s the best you can do in this town without destroying the fun.
