All the EX passes in Arizona have started in the main city area (Phoenix) and branching outwards to the other cities surrounding it, almost in a wave ripple pattern outwards.  So I still hear reports of people in bedroom towns getting EX pass invites, but nothing in the main city area where alot of my raids happen.


And AZ doesn't observe daylights savings time, so the raid windows are unaffected.  Still dumb that raids start so early (when no one wants to raid) and end early (when people are scrambling to use their passes for the day after work).

Yeah Suicune will be just a dex entry, more than any other legendary so far.  I'm hoping they release Ho-Oh like right at the start of November, which is what people are theorizing.

I hate you Billy ;).




It's nice to know I'm still loved :D


But yeah I agree on your points, the raiding scene has significantly slowed down in the past couple of weeks, since EX Raid passes are being trickled out now to areas outside of my main raiding area, the Mewtwo hype has died off (and they need as much hype as they can get to sustain interest).


I can still get a group together after work hours, and I know when Suicune launches that first week will be booming again, but it will once again fade away afterwards.


The main thing I'm trying to focus on now is soloing Tier 3 raids, which so far I've only prepared for (and won) my first Machamp solo raid.  I find that pretty entertaining and much more engaging, also moreso that basic game mechanics like dodging actually work and need to be implemented unlike the tap fest that are group raids.

Gah, I feel so bad forgetting about CAG for awhile now, I'm on my local Discord server which is super essential for raid formation, and satiates my Pokemon Go chatting.  Good to see you guys are still semi posting though.


I have so far gotten the following 100% IV legendaries:




Raikou (I also have a 98% as my runner up)


I also got two EX Raid passes invites, caught both Mewtwo, and one of them that was 91% IV with 15 ATK has been my main drain for my rare candies (that and my Raikou in preparation for Suicune).


It would be awesome if any of you CAGers were in AZ, since we could meet face to face, really the main enjoyable factor of this whole raid business, is to get to know your local scene.

Yeah that grass event speaks volumes on how little CAGs are discussing it.  I was happy to speed through a Jumpluff, as well as get a Meganium (and well on my way to a second one), but that was the extent of my positive experience.  The fact that I didn't see a single Tangela during the event is the biggest let down, I was hoping to stock pile those candies for the Gen 4 evolution.


If next month is a strictly fire event, not sure I'd be too excited for it.  Fire + Ground may be more interesting if it means a higher rate of Phanpy and Larvitars, as well as for those not in the Geodude / Rhyhorn biomes.
