Use an old phone or other device like a tablet to make a second account and you can knock yourself out the gym, can also help in raids to have another account.
I don't have either but I do have an app called Parallel Space which allows multiple accounts on certain apps. Dunno if that'll work alright.

Nothing to stop you creating a new PoGo account and switching between them for the purpose of knocking yourself out the gym, obviously wont help you with raids though - but I just checked out that discord you posted effectively gives you unlimited raids at all times so long as you have some raid passes!

Yeah, both that discord and the app @dellboyy mentioned are great. Still a pain to get into a raid group on the app but when I do manage it it works well.

Only natural spawns in the wild have the same IVs for everyone and that's if trainers are level 30 or above. All others will differ.
Funny I did a Bagon community day at Regents Park, people were flocking toward the 98iv where it was discovered. Even some nerds were shouting it out randomly to everyone else, there were hundreds of people just at the one spot :lol:

The Rayquaza was from the encounter quest rewards so wasnt sure if they had a fixed set of IVs or not.
I think there's fixed base IVs for raid bosses and research (70% minimum or something) but 98% is still really good. Especially if it's 15 attack.

@Vault Dweller I had about 100 revives stocked up through not doing raids. About 50 normal and 50 max revives. Rayquaza I ended up getting had 98% IVs so not sure if that is standard for everyone or whether I just got lucky.
Man I wish I had that number I've got about 50 I need to revive :lol: What does the 98% IVs mean?

Got 2 shiny Sneasel's this morning :cool:
I've binned about a dozen of them over the last year, I've had ridiculous luck with them. Until today, when I managed one in 66 encounters. Its always the same with these timed research ones. Got none during the Snubbull event. I see others on Discord with seven or eight.

Got a nice 4* Weavill today, I've been lacking a really good ice type for a while, only really had Abomasnow up until today. With Weavill added I've got good coverage for every type thankfully.

Nice one. I got three - two male, one female. Evolved one of the male ones. Did get a 98 and a couple of 96 IV regular ones but no hundos

Sure thing. Are you close to levelling up with any others?

Right, I'm getting really annoyed with catching Pokemon after raids now. So two raids in a row this morning, succeeded in both, for a Latias and a Latios. However, BOTH times, despite using golden razberries, silver pinaps, great and excellent throws galore, proceeded to catch neither. I mean I get it's meant to be difficult but COME ON.

I had the exact opposite experience with these two. Caught both with my first throws and didn't even hit Latias in the circle, never mind get an excellent throw. I don't understand it.

I know that feeling. Not going to do the Valentine's Collector badge - ridiculous that they've made it so four of the Pokemon can only be obtained via raids (or, if you're lucky like me, a couple via GBL). Tried to get a Latias earlier but it escaped.

Aye it's ridiculous, having to catch 4 through the legendary raids. It's put me off too.

No idea how big of a difference it makes but what are your medals for catching pokemon types? Each level of medal adds a boost to your catching chances of the same type of pokemon, so a gold medal for dragons adds a plus 3, whatever that means.

I had a 2800 CP Kyroge that escaped me a few weeks ago, I was seething.

Really started playing with the youngest kid at the start of the pandemic, now I've reached level 46:nervous: Really fun game, can't wait for the pandemic to slow down and the weather getting warmer so that we can go out more again.

Ahh right I see what you mean. Just had a look and for the Dragon ones I have only reached the bronze level, need another 5 for the silver. Need to be catching more Dragons then! Cheers.

It makes me irrationally angry when they escape :lol:

@Sied we're lucky friends at the moment. You within 40km of Manchester by any chance? If so we can trade.
Afraid not, I'm on the Isle of Man. I'll give you a shout if I'm ever nearby, although it won't be any time soon thanks to covid. Likewise, let me know in the unlikely event you're ever here!
