Pokemon Go ARG by Niantic (a Google company)

Thanks, Eleima!

I promise, I’m not a licensed doctor

Damn it. All my proctologist jokes are gonna go to waste now.

I will never stop being delighted when my buddy pops in for a catch assist.

Same. Anyone liking the new battle system?

Still has some kinks that need work in my opinion.

Makes me laugh every single time.

Hey people!

New to the game and looking for friends!

Is there a list somewhere of GWJer's?

I'm FuzzmasterJ at 4185 6702 0404

Friend me up!


Opened up PKGO to send you an invite, but you beat me to it!

There used to be a list... somewhere, but I'm not sure where in the thread. There are still a few of playing, I'll signal boost your code in Slack. I promise you that between the thread and that, you'll soon have more friends than you know what to do with!

Sounds good.

Already started getting responses!


Well, if we're sharing codes:

I can't remember if I ever posted my friend code out here, and just went back a few pages scraping some codes to send requests off to.

ShamrockSheik - 9797 0409 9945

My son, owlet2012, is doing some tasks that need friends.

I have added some of the recent ones but is anybody needs a faience his code is 1972-8154-6184

Feel free to friend me up. Rubeckiagwj 8341-5495-9189. Trying to send a request, it isn't working.

Did anyone buy a ticket to participate in the special research this week?

Probably going to do that this afternoon. Mostly to fill my pokedex.

The first group of tasks includes battling with another trainer 5 times. I keep trying to get Robear to work on our friendship level and he keeps blowing it off. LOL I need a battle buddy.

addendum: found out that the battle league will take care of it.

Also, they lowered the level requirement for battling. Just need 1 star now I think.

They are selling 100 poke balls for 1 coin. I looked at the store page for the first time yesterday so maybe that has always been the case. I didn't even know I had coins to buy stuff with.

It's a new thing for the stay at home situation. There are 30 incense for 1 coin as well. They have made a lot of changes to help people stay inside. You can get the current level 5 raid boss from go battle league.

Here's the details on what they're doing for the duration:


The following changes have been made to Pokémon GO until further notice.

3× Stardust and XP for your first Pokémon catch of the day: Be sure to activate a Star Piece and Lucky Egg to maximize your rewards.
Changes to Gifts: The number of Gifts you can open daily will now increase to 30, and the number of Gifts you can carry in your inventory will increase to 20. Gifts will also contain more Poké Balls. We appreciate your patience as we continue to prioritize updates that make gameplay more accessible and enjoyable at this time.
Rotating 1 PokéCoin bundles in the shop! New 1 PokéCoin bundles will be available in the shop each week as one-time purchases. The contents of these bundles change weekly, so be sure to get what is available each week. Right now, a new 1 PokéCoin bundle is available for you that contains the following.

Poké Balls × 100

You can access the above bundle (along with the one-time-purchase bundle of 30 Incense for 1 PokéCoin that was already available) from now until Monday, March 30, 2020, at 1:00 p.m. PDT (GMT −7).

The Incense and Poké Ball bundles will both be removed at that time, and a new 1 PokéCoin bundle will be available.

Anyone up for remote raids GWJ international? lol Level 40 can now invite friends to raids. (Soon to be everyone.)

Totally up for helping people out when I can. Might need to figure out how to coordinate.

So seriously... who on here needs help with raids... It's a remote raid pass for us to join each other, but I'm always game to help people get the mons they need.

Sure, I’m down. An easier way to coordinate would be to ping each other in the PokemonGo Slack channel.

Don’t forget about time zones though.

Wow, I forgot Slack was a thing... more of a discord person myself, but I guess I could relearn slack if it is the GWJ preferred method.

Manta, I was cleaning out my friends and accidentally deleted you.

My friend code is 4828 0666 5442

I mean, I’m on Discord too, so I can be pinged there too.

Resent. Do we have a gwj channel in the discord that would be appropriate?

Or do we just want to start a small discord just for this?

A Discord channel might be more appropriate. I'll check with the powers that be. Please, please, please don't make me have to join a new Discord server.
