Hi all, Just got back into this after a bit of break.
I've added a few trainer codes from the last few pages. Feel free to add me too.
Edit: Trainer code 6717 0170 3172

Cronox, you didn't wait to coordinate when we became Best Friends!! *sobs quietly in the corner as the hope of turning 40 before the new year keeps getting further and further away*

So did anyone else... uh.... get access to the weekend paid event for free. Or was it just m..my friend?

Everyone was always supposed to get access to the event. The paid ticket gave access to increased drop rates for shinies, special incense, extra challenges, ... Leek Duck did a really good recap, I can't find it right now on their site, but the screen shots are still in the GWJ Slack, and there's a tweet regarding the exclusive research. I think ticket holders also have an extra event to look forward to after a glitch.

But no, you didn't have to buy the ticket. I certainly did not.

I think the collection challenges were meant to be gated to ticket holders only though? I...I mean my friend...got access to them too.

I didn't buy a ticket and had the four tier standard collection which looks like... the graphic all the way on the bottom of LeekDuck's page. As I understand it, there were extra research challenges.

I had access to everything on this page

The official site may have more info. I definitely don't have access to the shiny Mew research. The Leek Duck also has some elements that are starred and explicitly specify "This bonus is only for Ticket holders." If you had access to that without buying a ticket then... good for you, I guess!

Hey, look at that, there WAS a glitch!
Niantic Announces Bonus Pokémon Go Event After Players Let In Free To The Kanto Tour (Kotaku)

Saturday saw one of the biggest paid international events Pokémon Go has hosted, the Kanto Tour. Costing a not-cheap $11.99, it was a celebration of the 25th anniversary of Pocket Monsters, with the hit mobile game going back to the series’ origins for a 12-hour celebration of the OG 151 Pokémon. Except, they accidentally let some people in for free.
Reports seem to indicate (thanks Eurogamer) this was first discovered after the international start time of 9am had swept through New Zealand and Australia, not caught until the rampant timewave had spread halfway around the world, leaving a lot of people who’d forked out a fair amount for a single day’s play a little cheesed off.

My 5yo finally got his own account and is desperate for pokeballs in gifts. If anyone is looking for more friends he'd be happy to add you.

Just curious - do most of you guys get the 25 km reward in a week? I seem to miss it by a few km each time due to my phone not being accurate. Does anyone else have this problem or do I just suck? (I went to the Pokémon forums and it seemed like the answer was “ 50 KM a week is standard or GTFO.”

lol I am in the same boat... but I definitely don't roll up my pants cuffs and place my phone inside while bouncing my leg in meetings to boost my numbers when I need them...

I have also never google automated solutions to this problem and lamented that only sketchy looking items are out there...

I'm taking public transportation, walking to school, to the specialized center, to the hospital, and back again all over the place. I don't own a car. I don't always hit 50km, probably every other week. But I always hit the 25km mark. According to my Watch, I walk 6.8km (4.2mi) a day.

What’s weird is my Fitbit regularly says I’ve covered 3.5-4 miles a day on average so not sure why that doesn’t show up in PGO.

Adventure Mode used to sometimes turn off randomly for me. I'd notice numbers being down and go check it to find it off again.

That seems to be the problem thank you!

Just started back up. Hopefully to get some exercise in. Here is my code.

7576 8330 4883

So I log on, go straight to the friends list to add your code, seeing a pending invite and think “ugh, they can wait, I have to add a goodjer!”
And then the app chides, “you already have a pending invite from Igneus.”
Oh. Oops. ^^
Anyway, we’re friends now!
And I need to stick up on more gifts.

The Pokémon channel on the GWJ Slack is quite active and invited often go out for raids, so consider joining the fun there! I’ll post your code there too since some folks don’t check the forums as often as they used to.

So the family just decided to start playing because my youngest daughter really wanted to. If you want to add us the codes are 2509 0389 6585; 9735 3065 7877; and 5808 1268 9593.

Yeah I added any codes I found on the last couple pages.

So I have 30 hours left to use a referral code. First come first serve

Here's mine. The more the merrier.

Sooooo, I sent the three of you invites but I got an error each time. But I also got new requests. So I’m not sure if those went through or not. Would you mind posting your handles as well? I usually tag goodjers in my friends list so I can tell them apart when I’m doing purges (I also have a bunch of randos from posting my code on Pokémon Room). Wouldn’t want to remove you by accident!

I think I’m finally getting close to 41... the climb is excruciating!

Friendship requests sent Im Rubeckiagwj

So I have an alt account now. ^^ She's EllieStargazer and her code is 7428 1087 1493.

They all got them so I guess it worked.

I'm Zaquezundu, then you have Minsimins, Owlette8, and my wife started playing as well she's LadyProfEU (0993 2649 6619).

Thanks so much! Sent an invite to your wife as well!

I think I am all caught up with everyone
