Default Pokemon Go - Strategy/Tips Discussion Thread

So what are your strategies and/or tips?

Here are mine:

- Only use power-ups on fully-evolved stuff.
- Incense is for parks and nowhere else.
- Power-ups go to the lowest CP fully-evolved Pokemon, unless there's no more candy.
- Always transfer every single weaker duplicate unless it's Eevee, in which case, start transferring from the fourth one onwards.

There had been a vital mistake on my last bill, and so I was being refunded for overcharges on my voice minutes. Later that day, I found one of those special vending machines from Coca-Cola's viral marketing campaign. It was a very memorable day.

If you're going to evolve Pokémon, evolve them all at once and use a Lucky Egg while doing so. Also evolve a bunch of Pidgeys and Rattatas with all that extra candy you no doubt have. Each evolution gives you 500 XP, and with the Lucky Egg bonus that's 1000 XP. I once gained three levels in the space of 30 minutes just by going on an evolution spree like this.

<Eifie> yeah, I'm not so sure how much of that is real
<Veheeyem> Just imagine for a second though
<MF> people, you're being irrational
<Eifie> that's not a natural age
<Veheeyem> whoa take it easy, what's the root of all this negativity?

Always use the 3-use incubators on the 10km eggs because then you can use your infinite-use one on the 2km ones without running out of uses before the 10km ones hatch.
Replace 10km or 2km with 5km above if you've run out of either of them.

Throwing curveballs is easy once you get the hang of it, and generally ends up being more accurate. Especially against strong pokémon at high levels, when straight throws start randomly curving out of the way - curveballs don't do that, and it ends up saving a lot of balls.

Actually, incense spawns Pokémon much more frequently when you're moving above a certain speed. I use it when I'm on the train home and get about a spawn a minute. I got a 1k CP Vaporeon once :O

This is a good one. I haven't used any of my Lucky Eggs yet so right now I'm catching every Pidgey I see, so that one day I might have enough candies to evolve 100+ of them twice all at the same time.

There's plenty of not-common Pokémon I have which I don't have the evolved forms of yet, so once I have enough candies I'll wait until I go on my Pidgey spree to evolve them, too.
