**: This Rhydon was not caught in Oman, and was rather caught in Dubai, UAE.

No tyranitar yet. :frowning: As you might expect we don’t have the greatest Pokemon selection in my rural town. I saw two Larvitar during the event (not in my town) and that is it. I have never seen them at any other time. I now have enough candy to evolve Pupitar but I am waiting until I have enough candy to power tyranitar up. :smiley: I make cake deliveries to surrounding towns so I play where I deliver.


Urban for the most part- I work in a downtown area, but live in the suburbs
Level 34
XP total 5677639
3179 dragonite
Caught 14110 Pokémon
Spun 12557 stops ( I can reach two stops from my office)

Will also add I have never once gps spoofed and have never put money into the game, all my coins came from gyms. I have traveled to Las Vegas, Washington DC and a few smaller places since the game started


Level 37
XP 11.2 Million
26K Caught
25K Pokestops
3565 CP Tyranitar 100% IV almost fully powered up


Rural or Urban: Mixture of both. Closest pokestop is 3km away from where I live but ingress is still alive in our city’s populous and they have done quite the job at creating portals (AKA Poke stops) all around rural areas and the urban part of town 30 minutes from me.
Level: 34
Total XP: 5.884.734
Pokémon caught: 14.644 Where I work is a great spawn point. Typically its a 15 plus cluster of Mons to greet me good morning.
Spun: 8.925
Best Pokémon (and it’s CP): 3334 Dragonite


Rural or Urban: Urban-ish (population 200.000 in my city with plenty of pokestops and arenas, but we have much fewer and less varied spawns than smaller towns I’ve played in)
Level: 25
Total XP: 742743
Pokémon caught: 2061
Pokestops Spun: 1928
Best Pokémon (and it’s CP): Vaporeon with CP2352

I’ve been playing since the official release in Germany (July 13th 2016), but with lots of breaks, because spawns around here aren’t great to say the least and catching millions of Rattata and Pidgey sometimes just doesn’t seem worth it. I try to get out at least for the events, but I often miss announcements for them and only get alerted by friends a few days in. ^^’

@Enkidu Congrats!

You can post your level up here btw:


Thanks for the congratulations!! On my way to lv 33!!


What my rural spawns looked like when the fire and ice event dropped as well as a nice rare Rapidash catch!


Rural mostly, but semi-urban would more accurately describe where I play since.

Just hit 35 today
6023150 exp total
Start date 7/7/16
17480 caught
14581 spun
And best one is only a dragonite at 3273 CP
The crazy part about it is that I had saved up 240+ dratini candies but had only one dratini over 80% IV. Quite the journey from level 8-35.5
