Holding gyms looks like it'll be a lot easier over the next week or two. What with all of the changes they have made to the game.

Catch probability has been cut roughly in half. No more exp bonus for nice/great/perfect catches. No more catch bonus for the same throws. New mon scans have been increased from 5 to 10 seconds (means no more driving and catching).

Going to be a hell of a lot easier to do stuff as nobody will be playing. Well, unless you're in a dense city area.

5 gyms, in a ridiculously tight area, with a team actively keeping them.

If anyone out there does want to switch teams, if you go to Ninantic's webpage, you can submit a request to switch teams. Tell them all your friends are on a different team and you want to be on the same one. They will switch you over.

It'd be great if we don't have to go to another country.

Sounds like Futiles'eses'? Australian friends need to go out scouting.

That's why we have to collect from gyms to earn money to get those incubators. I will however be upgrading my backpack over everything else first.
Quick heads up, just got notified of of some emails going around saying you had to start paying to play Pokemon Go.. it's a scam, I'm sure most if not all of you would not fall for that, but you may want to advise other casual players that you know.

I know Kaens swears by it, but I'm not sure how much he's found out of eggs he hasn't found yet and he's hatched over 150 eggs.

Ran across this, seems like getting those foreign Pokemon will be difficult after all. Nobody is reporting foreign pokemon. Maybe this will change when the roll out is complete

Only at 80/81 for now. I haven't been playing as much since the last update. Watching a 12cp weedle escape from 6 consecutive balls then bolt is pretty obnoxious.

I finally got my first Snorlax this weekend and I now have a Nine Tails as well.
