If they do come out with a new game I'll definitely be interested. I want story/skill/ not spamming a touchscreen.

I can agree that the combat leaves a lot to be desired, but they also had to make it as casual friendly as possible.

i was told the reason for removal of the tracking system instead of the fix was due to it's impact on servers, and that they intend to focus on their global launch before looking into it further.

not sure if it is true or bs

To be honest, I am having little to no server issues since the new update - but I think the RNG changed as I'm using more pokeballs to catch pokemon, even the low CP ones escape much more now.

It is easy, though, just have a bunch of databases based on location (ie, city or state) filled with coordinates of pokemon locations and details. Everytime your gps coords update, the table is looked up for coordinates within range (x,y)

IV's Explained

Each type of Pokemon has a base set of attributes for Stamina, Attack and Defence. Each specific Pokemon is "born" with it's own IV (individual values), that further increase these stats by 0-15 extra points. You can not change the IV's, not all Pokemon are born equal.

Powering up or evolving will not change the IV% (Individual Value) of a pokemon. Doesn't matter if you're level 20, 30 or 40. Being a higher level will only allow you to level a pokemon up to your trainer level.

This pretty much what has pissed me off. I am still a little pissed off about the tracking sites going down and the nearby being nuked. But darn crud it is a royal pain in the arse to catch anything at lv22. mad.gif

Now if I even bother going to hunt. I just go find a lure and site.

They need to increase the drop rate of pokeballs, reduce drop rate of revives. I estimate I've thrown away in excess of 300 revives at this point, I've used quite a few, and I still have 114. On more than one occasion while walking last night, I got 4 revives and 1 pokeball from a stop, a lot of times I got no pokeballs, just pots and revives. Could also reduce the number of drops of regular pots, and increase the greater ones, depending on level, and even the total numbers by increasing pokeball drops on their place. At higher level you need more pokeballs anyway

I've currently been to 1524 pokestops and caught 1484 pokemon. 40 more pokestops than pokemon and I'm pretty much constantly out of pokeballs since the change.

Yeah, it seems they change the drops at pokestops too. The game is hardly fun anymore.

I use to get way more pokeballs. Now....potions and revives which are useless to me since I rarely go gym smashing in my area. Everyone is to easy to beat in my area since I can smash the crap out of lv7+ gym by myself. Note: Most peeps in my area don't have good pokes because it being a small city. I was down in Tampa for two weeks so have quite a built up of better pokes than the ones that spawn here.

my guess is they have lowered pokeball drop rate so people start paying for the balls instead. from what i see and guess they arn't looking for the long haul of the game and just going for the quick money.
