I lured up the stop closest to me, popped an incense, and then continually caught for about 3 hours. Shinies were plentiful, and I finally evolved my hundo Seedot (though I wish it would have gotten a better event move than Seed Bomb, after waiting a year to evolve it).
Buddy assisted frequently, and brought me 50 balls every half hour, it seemed. Maybe feeding it a Boffin made it more eager to please.
I decided halfway through to do the special research and rushed through that in an hour. All things considered, Seedot Community Day was pretty fun.
1231 shiny checks and got 50 shinies, a very good 1 in 25 ratio.
Still had long moments with no shinies at all and my girlfriend won our bet who could get the most; she had 56 including a 10cp shiny i hoped for, so i owe her a massage now…
Did get a 93 or 96% from a quest, so there’s that
I played 2 hours during the event, used 1 incense and got 3 shinies and several good-IV Seedot. I did the special research. I could play outside this time. It was fun, I like this kind of events. It’s great that Niantic made incense much better than it was before and that we have more time to catch Pokemon.
Wasn’t keen for this community day… I mean it’s weedle But the shiny rate for me was insane. Played solid for four hours and then got pretty bored to be honest. According to my pokedex I saw 224 over those four hours.
I spent the first three hours at home and had a 1/37 Shiny rate. After that I went to a big city nearby and even though I didn’t constantly walk I somehow managed to get a total of 36 Shiny Jormdeworms, which is my record along with Abra. Quite surprised I got that many! Haven’t calculated the final rate yet but I think it did go up to 1/25.
For me first hour was ZERO…
More than 100 catches - and no shinies at all.
But I used two incenses and I was clicking my pokeball for all 6h (re-connecting it several times of course…).
And ended up with more than 20 in the end
What’s more it was the very first Community Day when I got Hundo - in last 5 min!
Played a little over an hour before I had to go to a graduation ceremony with some friends. Got 7 shinies, but more than anything got reminded why I have so little desire to catch Weedles. The annoying little jumpy, jerky, fidget twits are way more trouble than they’re worth, once one is past the phase of mass-evolutions for leveling-up.
The only reason I played longer than 5 minutes was the triple stardust. For that I might do another hour after graduation’s over.
– Did the last hour and got 5 more shinies, the best being a 15-14-14, CP 412.
Got called away and missed evolving, so I’ll do that at the end of the year to get the Drill Run move. There were a few others worth evolving.
The best part was gaining over 120,000 Stardust from catching all those stupid Weedles.
Did the first 2 hours at home, then walked arround for an hour with friends and did a raid, then went back home and did another 2 hours. Most were caught with the GoPlus.
I ended up with 12 shinys.
Evolved a few weedles wich i think were ok for GBL after i glanced at gostadiums top list. Ill have to check those later.
I just couldn’t get excited about it at all. Due to that rather than going to any of my usual CD play spots and sitting on a bunch of Lured stops I decided to Chase Zekrom Raids for the afternoon on non Gold Gyms and let the Go Plus catch whatever.
Picked up 6 and evolved my normal 100% I had in the bank.
Somehow right after community day ended I got carried away by life (cooking, housework, other work,…) and didn‘t get to post here.
I played one incense long, again first about an hour-long walk and then from home. I plussed a lot, because I got quite annoyed by those Weedle jumping around…
I ended up with 12 shinies, about 200k dust and two special move Beedrill (one with good IV, one for PvP).
It was ok, and I‘m somehow getting used to this kind of Community Day, but I miss meeting my old PoGo group at the park.
I probably won‘t play for Ghastly in July, but I might meet my group again for GO Fest. Our local laws and regulations allow it (with proper individual distance ).
