    That’s me. You can trigger whenever you’d like. I don’t care too much about the XP.

    Is there a way to count steps on my apple watch without having the pokemon go app open on my phone?

    yup. the extension does it. just need to open it up and start a walk. also, your phone should do it in the background now.

    Thanks, but do I have to hit start walk or anything on my watch? I tried it several months ago and couldn't ever get credit so i stopped playing. I walk about 5,000 steps for work and there's 2 poke stops within walking distance I can hit whenever I feel like not being lazy.

    yes. You need to hit start walking on the watch app. but again, it's not really relevant anymore because the activity tracker on the phone version will track your steps even when the app isn't open on your screen

    So if my phone says that I walked 5000 steps today, it'll instantly upload it to pokemon? I just have to open Pokemon once a day then to get credit? Because I stopped playing because I was tired of the power draw on my watch/phone.

    it should prompt you when you open it up if you want to turn on activity tracking. if not play around in settings and you will find it.

    i know that's for apple, but i know it wasn't registering for a long time on my phone (android). found out the fix was turning off my phone's power saver mode.

    My sons account got the dreaded failed to retrieve data from the server error. Not a ban but looks and acts like one.

    There are three things that I could be banned for, but all would be low chance at this point. From what I have read this is not a ban as I did not receive an email saying so and the response that I received from Niantic states they are aware of the problem for a small group of players.

    The three things are playing both accounts, using a Pokemon Gotcha, and when I started this account in 2016 it was spoofing in San Francisco for the first 3 or so months, but I had stopped playing on it and then restarted playing a year or more later in NY. I don't think any of those things would get me banned now. There is also a considerable money and time invested in it at this point and it is very frustrating because I need the second account to raid solo and to trade and do a lot that I do with my first account.

    This is a bug that Niantic is aware of...have been a couple of Reddit threads on it recently and Niantic has responded to users saying they are aware and working on it

    Yep, read them and got the same Niantic responses. So fucking frustrating. This is similar to what happened to me when I was number one in the world at FIFA mobile. Took months for them to get my account working again.

    completely forgot about this, but i guess you haven't popped either. provided you get this in time, perhaps pop at noon? get back to me if you would on when you can do it.

    Don’t worry about my main account. Just open when you want. I won’t open. Remind me when my son pops because I am good at forgetting and opening by mistake.

    I got my first EX raid pass for this Sunday. Any tips for how to do it? As in making sure I get in the raid and not left out.

    get there 5 minutes or so before hatch and either coordinate with those there or just jump in at hatch.

    And Deoxys A form is very easy to solo, if necessary.

    literally whatever you want. use a Caterpie if you want, if your group has 3+ people it won't matter what you use. it has less Defense than a Weedle, it's a joke raid. EX's have a 6% BCR compared to normal legendary pokemon's 2% so they're also exceedingly easy to catch.

    if you're worried about damage balls then SB Mewtwo, double Dark Ttar, Weavile, Honchkrow or Absol. double Bug Scizor or Pinsir works, too.

    Deoxys has been such a disappointment. completely worthless mon that is such a hassle to get a chance to catch.

    i'm just filling the dex at this point. just finished off gen 2 with ho-oh field research (i hardly raid). once i get deoxys i'll likely get the regi things through field research and if i actually try maybe do some groudon and kyogre raids here soon. clear out gen 3 quick
