    I'm sort of ok with the raid system but mainly because I work in Central London and just randomly turning up to one here can have enough peeps around to take it down. If I was more rural I'd hate it with a passion.

    The new gym system I loathe though, I've earned a measly amount of coins since it changed as gyms change over too quickly. The amount of times I've spent nearly an hour taking down a gym or two to find both of my 'mons taken down minutes after walking away is just depressing and makes me want to never try again.

    So for me it's all about just walking around catching stuff (too dangerous to walk around enough to hatch eggs now - phone theft in London is insane) and this Halloween event was essentially over for me within an hour. Urgh. I can see me dropping the game until gen 3 properly releases in December. There's just not enough reason for me to keep going.

    Nah raiding is cool if you get to know your local player base, but the frustrations lie in that the first week of a legendary release everyone cares but if you miss that interest wavers because they're useless... everyone is more excited about ttar than a Suicune, and I am too now I've got the Dex entry. That's broken. It can be a little bit of right time right place but I've noticed that MOST of the local raiders to me are self employed or have unusual working hours. I know enough people now that I get a message a few times a day asking if I'm interested in a raid or if anything good has spawned, like a 100% Haunter the other day.

    I also prefer the new gym system. Presitiging wasn't fun and I often stumble upon gyms with space now which was unheard of before.

    I've still not got Bannet, plenty enough to evolve but waiting to see if I get a wild encounter first. *shrug*

    I like the raids...I see what people mean about working hard for a Blastoise...Tyranitar etc. but by this stage if you didn't have one, you weren't hardcore enough a player :p by the time raids came, I was on my 6th Blastoise anyway, just for example...and they give a good chance of catching a strong version (still need a good Snorlax!).

    As for the gym system, I prefer it too :p Being a Red player was always a pain in Portsmouth (everyone was Blue) or Cambridge (everyone in Cherry Hinton was Yellow, in the rest of Cambridge, Blue). And I would very rarely get the 50 coins a day you can get now (let alone the 100 you could!), plus training was always a tedious ballache which I definitely don't miss, I guarantee my 50 coins every day by going out just after midnight and taking my 8 nearby gyms (takes about 45 mins) which is great.

    Excited for gen 3 of course...but I will be disappointed if they put in any raid bosses from gen 3 for a good 4 to 6 months...work hard for those Pokemon!

    Finally I can stop....
    Apart from daily raids, need to use those raid passes.
    Apart from catching everything as usual, as I might as well use balls
    Apart from when gen 3 comes out next month.
    But yay I'm done.

    ^ Jesus, why did you bother catching so many Magnemites? Congrats on the level 40, though! :)

    Because I wanted level 40 :p with nice/great/excellent throws and first catch and curveballs, wayyyy over 1M of my total XP would have come from Magnemites.

    Minus legendaries and regionals, I've completed the Gen 1 dex. Caught 237 Seen 243
    Unless something changes, I recognize I will NEVER have a legendary (either the rides are more important at a theme park & not enough players), or where I live, it's dead.
    I've gotten one shiny (magikarp that I evolved into a full powered gyrados.
    Still at level 34, and I keep thinking I'll be level 35 soon. I still play, but not often except for events. There's nothing exciting to hatch or evolve that I can't realistically get. If they do the FarFetched event thing, yeah, that'll motivate me to play and try to catch one, otherwise, I'm just kinda random catching a couple mon each day while waiting for gen 3 release.
