Farfetch'd was available here for a week or so. Zangoose/Seviper and Solrock/Lunatone switched hemispheres. Minun was originally exclusive to the eastern hemisphere too.

The other regionals I have - Heracross, Corsola, Mr. Mime, Kangaskhan (and Unown for that matter) - I got through dirty cheating. If you're trusting/dumb, find someone in the appropriate part of the world to use your account and catch what you need. Otherwise use a hacked version of the app to spoof the GPS and then you can be anywhere. Though that second one is super risky and I don't recommend it - I know people who lost Level 40 accounts for 3 months and counting because they were spoofing regularly.

I've never had a spoofing app on my own phone and only got a few of the above guys from spoofing (2 Unowns, 1 Heracross, 1 Corsola, I think - the rest were me being trusting/dumb). Now I just trade with spoofers and that works out much better.

Updates on these:

- They just introduced new rules around cheating. On the first offense, you get a 7-day soft ban (you get warned but you can keep playing, though you won't find anything but common Pokémon for a week). On the second offense, you get a 30-day ban. Third offense and your account is permabanned.

- My spoofer friend traded me a Volbeat and a Relicanth for two garbage Rattatas. Hoping he can get an extra Torkoal and Tropius for me before he eats the banhammer again.

I did decide to put $20 in so I could pick up some extra raid passes for this. I think I went 0 for 8 on catching a shiny Zapados for the hour I tried. That part was disappointing. I still ended up with a lot of Rare Candy, enough to take care of two Pokemon I hadn't evolved yet, so that part was a win.

Any better luck for any one else?

I went for a dozen Zapdos raids. Caught 8, 4 ran, no shinies. Probably 50+ people starting out in our raiding group but it fell off hard once the free passes were gone. We met up with other groups along the way too. Saw others out while I was on my way home.

I mostly remembered to Lucky Egg and Star Piece the whole time. Except when I didnt.

One guy went on a loud swearing fit because we weren't breaking into teams as accurately as he'd have liked. The organizer of the meet-up had to tell him to settle down.

One little kid with a Pikachu hat joined us too late and missed a raid so we made sure to get him into the next one and he caught it! and was so happy

Hey! An egg KJames199 sent me gave me a Grimer + 15 Grimer candies I needed to evolve it to Muk. That's the only Pokemon left I needed to evolve from Generation 1. I was so happy when I saw it come up and I thank you for it even though you have no control over it.

Only need to walk 237 KM to evolve my Quilava next. Don't think that's happening this year.

Getting a Raikou for September training is a nice improvement over a Snorlax.

I have gotten up to 149 Gen1.

I am missing only Kangaskhan and Mew2.

I have an EX Raid Pass for tomorrow to get that Mew2!

I will be out of state when the Raid actually happens.

This is the second time this has happened to me.

Life is nothing but misery.

Game is alright.

It looks like the next update will let you trade raid passes so if you know any local folks who play, you can maybe work something out?

My trainer code is 5932*3791*7005 (doc ireland)

I liked how the eevee event was two days. Made it feel more relaxed.

Don't tell that to the friend of mine who got 3 shiny Eevee while I got 19 over the same timespan.

I went out and got about six on Saturday and decided I wouldn't bother with Sunday. Then I got 2 on Sunday while eating a Five Guys. And 2 more when I got home. It was silly.

Adding new people is always good. Though I would recommend waiting until you get to part 2 of the new quest to add people, because you'll need to add 3 new people to continue.

I think I either have to talk to random people who play, or punch in random numbers and hope I get lucky. Very much leaning towards random numbers.

Thank you to thecubsfan for sending me an egg that turned out to be Ms. Mime!

Already had a Farfetch'd from the day the birds visited last year, so now I just need to hatch a Kangaskhan for the original pokedex completion.

The inspiring conclusion to this tale of woe is I got 3 Mew2s today and will be happy to give two of them away. And apparently places I go to all the time have EX Passes and I just never have gotten them.

I'm down to 33 Pokemon on my list that I'm still missing, including one I didn't realize I was missing until today. But I'm still short one friend to advance on the quest.

It took way more 7km eggs than I expected but I now have a Kangaskahn (Saturday) and a Mr. Mime (Sunday). I was 0 for 2 on Mewtwo on Community Day, sadly, or I'd finally have a full Gen1 Pokédex. I will probably find my Raidfriends and give it another (several) shot(s) this week.
