I'm kinda surprised Go got as big as it did, I uninstalled it immediately after hitting that paywall
I used to sometimes run out of balls, but I haven’t run out of balls since gifts to friends started. Now I occasionally throw away some balls just so I can spin stops.

I thought there was going to be a paywall too but I haven't spent a cent yet. You spend actual money on poke coins but you can get 50 poke coins a day free for being in a gym long enough. Also, walking a lot gets you a lot of rewards too so theres that. There have been some times where I was really low on pokeballs so I would spend a day or two just going to spin at gyms and stops and would only catch any pokemon I really wanted.

Edit: I think I was around level 14 or 15 when I kinda felt the same though. You can play this game and have fun without spending a dime .

Moltres if it has sky attack. Otherwise neither. I'm waiting for origin pulse Kyogre before I start powering them. If you just want to convert rare candies for bag space, I'd go Kyogre but not power up.

So fighting Team Rocket Grunts is decently fun. Not quite the same as being challenged by random Bug Catchers but it's getting there!

I recently got back into this after a 2 year layoff as my now 7 year is poke-obsessed. I ended up buying the Datel Go-Tcha. Basicially it's a Pokeball Go Plus but auto collects all the stops and pokemon. I got it for when im driving and I can stock up on supplies so I have balls to use when I get home with the kids.

Was $50, and i find it a massive help.

So I went 0/128 on shinies during the window... then at 10:30 I hatched my first one. Odds of 0/128? ~0.5%.

I Caught 1, in roughly 120-150 catches.

I still am incubating one 10k egg, that could still be shiny.

We're already friends.

The whole making new friends and having to make trades is really a thorn in my side.

If you're in a pinch, you can add random people.

It works to delete a friend and re add them as well.
