Lucky Friends & Avatar Poses Are Coming to Pokémon GO


#1

#2

They’re already here actually, but you do need to update the game to the newest version.


#3

500 for a pose, great


#4

500? Jeez. I had a feeling they’d charge for them, but wow. That’s a lot for a simple pose.


#5

500 for a new pose!? Too much.


#6

For 500 coins they can put those poses somewhere the sun doesn’t shine…


#7

I’ve done two things with my friend (exchanging gifts and a PvP-battle) and nothing, no best friend status… is it really online everywhere? Apart, I have version 0.139.3, seems to be the newest.


#8

Two things? You expect that to be enough? Foolish mortal


#9

You need to become Best Friends to be able to become Lucky Friends.


#10

it is live but i’ve seen reports on Dutch newssite/forum that once you’re lucky friends trading can bug out and give not-lucky pokemon, mostly with shiny pokemon. So tip: do not trade shiny legendary pokemon with a lucky friend for now. Wait it out untill bugs are fixed.

Also, 2 actions to become lucky friends is like making 1 photo for Smeargle. You need to do more before you’ll have succes.


#11

I’m not soo bad in this game for not to know that I have to be best friend. I was doing this to try if it is in use now.
My friend and I are best friends since exactly the minimum time when it was posible. But still it’s not working between us.

And @Punica, reading the text I understand that it will work instantly, not on basis of trial and error as with Smeargle. But you are right, maybe there are still bugs.


#12

By this I thought you meant you weren’t Best Friends with your friend.


#13

People who give a rat’s ass about something as superficial as what pose their avatar is in (or even what outfit it wears) might decide that it’s worth the frivolous expenditure. I kind of like the thought that normal / functional play will be free with the more discretionary stuff as the basis for product revenue.


#14

Oh, I beg your pardon, I wanted to say … no lucky friend status…


#15

I would love to change it and I would even pay for that (in coins of course)
But 500 is ridiculous and much better spent on 5 raids


#16

I’ll admit that I’ve spent a few coins for a couple of tweaks to appearance. But just a few coins for just a couple of things.

But I’m totally with you on that last point. The cost for the new things is way too much, even for people who place a high value on the way they look.


#17

trainertips posted a video which stated that only the first friendship-action per day can give lucky friends, and he stated he had inside information from niantic so i trust that.

That means the all the battling in gyms me and my GF did last night was pointless after the first fight…


#18

Sounds normal to me, as the whole friendship system works on that first interaction per day!


#19

good point, skipped my mind :wink:


#20

First action per day per friend or just per day?
