    Send a Pokémon to Let’s Go and you get a Mystery Box in return. It acts as a lure for Meltan for 30 minutes. Can do it once a week.

    you definitely should have waited until double candy event started during the 18th but at least you seem to have the game so you can get boxes easily. I have my first box here with me, even if all it gives is the bare minimum of 15 Meltan, that's 180 candy if I pinap during the event and another 30 for transferring (I'd trade but it's got that stupid special trade tag). all I have to do is get a 2nd box and wait for another 2x candy event and I'll easily snag the 400 candy.

    This thing is basically the god of Great League tier:

    anything with quick Fast move or crazy tankiness owns in Great. I had a bunch of perfect Umbreons I kept around 1100-1200 for prestiging that I've boosted a little and they're filthy.

    Azumarill is also a direct hard counter to 2 of the other A tiers in Great League in Altaria and Umbreon because of the fairy typing.

    And it beats a body slam snorlax straight up without even needing to use shields.

    Here are the options I choose from, in the general order of their greatness.

    1500
    Az - Bubble, Play Rough, Ice Beam
    Flygon - Mud Shot, Stone Edge, Dragon Claw
    Charizard - Fire Spin, Blast Burn, Dragon Claw
    Creselia (must trade and hope for low IVs to get under 1500) - Confusion, Moonblast
    Venosaur - Vine whip, Frenzy Plant, Sludge Bomb
    Zapdos - Charge Beam, Zap Cannon, Thunderbolt ( I like adding Thunderbolt here as a 2nd charge even though it's still electric because it's a two-bar move and you might be able to get one off quickly at the end of its life)
    Blastoise - Water Gun, Hydro Cannon, Ice Beam
    Meganium - Vine Whip, Frenzy Plant, Earthquake (Haven't used him much, probably should be higher, great coverage)
    Quagsmire - Mud shot, Sludge Bomb, Stone Edge
    Wobbuffett - Counter, Mirror Coat (doesn't have any other charge moves). This is a sneaky play I'd only use sparingly against people you play against regularly and/or you suspect have the counters for your usual team. Extremely bulky and annoying, great option to lead with and try to get your opponent to use an unnecessary shield or two while you just absorb damage.

    I'll post my 2500 later. Ultra's fun. I like Great the best but Ultra has a lot of options and most trainers can field competitive teams and win matchups.

    Master League is basically just a Legendary dick-measuring contest with a little Rock, Paper, Scissors thrown in. I have incredible Master League options, but so do all of my friends. We play way too much Pokemon.

    I only do Master with people who agree to no legendaries, can lead to a wider ranger of pokemon to face.

    when does the special double bonus take place? I heard 1Pm EST. Is that correct?

    Edit: 1PM PST. I thought it was a mystery box special, but it is all. I misunderstood.

    You get a possibility of stardust or stones from your first battle with a practice trainer each day and your first three battles with other actual trainers each day.

    I've gotten all stardust the past two days :(

    My group did not have an easy time catching it. It was easy to hit, but it escaped a lot.

    my point was more it's dead center, doesn't move up or down or side to side, and is right in the middle distance-wise so it's a very easy toss.

    Agreed it was easy to hit with a great curveball or better, but escapability in my two instances was very high.

    Anyone know whose girl LadyLewy is? I can't open another gift to say the city/state she's in which may help but maybe someone else can. Need to coordinate Best Friends gift time.
