The Pokémon GO group set out on our exodus for the first time at a relaxed pace. If you recall the previous Pokémon GO events, we’ve always sped around town (safely) and knocked out as many gym raids as we could. Today the pressure was low and no stress.
So why Gengar? We assume that it should have been live the previous weekend as a Halloween event. Gengar caught on this day also have a special move – Lick. Gengar might be more powerful than Mewtwo with this quick DPS move. But this goes make Gengar much quicker to go down in battle.
In the end we did 17 raids and Sander found 2 Shiny Gengar. I didn’t get a Shiny Gengar but Sander is saving one for me. That’s the unfortunate outcome for these events. There will always be a handful of people who don’t get the Shiny variant. The last time we did this, I ended up with 4 Moltres! There were 2 people who couldn’t attend the event with us so they will get my extra Moltres.
The wonderful thing about being in such a big group is that we all look out for each other. There’s a lot of communication and any suspicious behavior from other players are reported and shared within our group. This way we look out for our entire community and not the people we play with.
There is also another event going on as well. A new safari event is taking place in Tainan, Taiwan. Participants there get to find ultra rare regional spawns. The rest of the world has increased chances of finding a Shiny Pinsir. Sander and I managed to find them!
The highlight of the day was when the both of us caught perfect stat Gengar. And of course Sander with his amazing luck found a Shiny 100% Gengar. He’s becoming quite famous as this is his second! His first was a Shiny Lugia a few months ago.
Sander has also finally reached the max level of 40! I’m still at level 38 so I have a long ways to go. I’m not sure how we’ll continue to play everyday with winter coming in as fast as it is. We were standing out in the cold for 3 hours and had to warm up when we got home.
It doesn’t matter what comes this winter. It will be more exciting to play because there are so many that love this game as much as we do!
