    Could anyone point me towards a decent IV checker please? I've been using PokeAssistant, but it can take a couple of levels before narrowing in on the number, which for rarer pokemon can be a bit of a pain.

    Hey y'all, I haven't played Pokemon Go in a while, but how is it nowadays? Is it worth getting back in to in your opinions?

    I say yes.

    What level are you? Do you have most Pokemon caught? Did you participate in raids?

    That's good to hear. I'll have to check and see what Pokemon I have but from what I remember it wasn't much.

    Btw, we're in the middle of a special event now.

    Right now, it's double exp and expanded pokemon spawns. But once some other goals are met, there'll be double stardust and various other things.

    I have 1,000 Pokemon to evolve. I've been saving them in preparation for the next double XP event.

    Holding off juuust a bit, on the slight chance that those XP bonuses stack somehow.

    I've not seen anything about this event, no emails or anything! And I've just checked the app, not showing up yet.

    I finally caught a shiny this evening whilst walking the dogs. I'm now the proud owner of a shiny Magikarp.

    However... It doesn't have very good IVs. It's somewhere in the 50-75% range, with a terrible defense stat. So I have to decide if I want a blingy Gyarados, or a good one.

    And here, without an app update.

    Dev update here

    - Weather has an impact. Spawn rate, stardust, and something to do with battles.
    - Hoenn pokemon now here.
    - Battle parties. Looks like a preset team of 5 pokemon. Dunno how many you can make, but it's for easy gym breaking/raids.
    - Max storage now 1500, and everyone gets a free +50

    Weather so far:
    Clear - grass, ground, fire (if I use wifi)
    Snow - ice, steel (outside now)
    Rain - water, electric, bug

    I'm assuming heatwave, and possibly storm. If they stick to 2/3 per weather, and they do a weather for each type, then 3 (or more) more conditions coming.
    In game, you have nothing, rain, sun, snow, sandstorm, but I no idea what they'll be doing.

    Also, and I'm assuming this is for the update, and will tail off, spawn rates in general seem higher, and to have been fiddled with. I just wandered down to the shops, and normally would have seen some trash, maybe one or two worth attempting. But loads of decent stuff this time (first Kabuto, Omanyte, Electabuzz that I've actually seen, and caught all of them).

    If it keeps up, this bodes well for rural players. It means I can stop catching spinarak and pidget, because there's gonna be decent stuff.

    EDIT

    Full weather (so far) from IGN, here

    Weather /Types Affected
    Fog /Dark, Ghost
    Clear/Sun /Grass, Ground, Fire
    Snow /Ice, Steel
    Rain /Water, Bug, Electric
    Wind / Dragon, Flying, Psychic
    Clouds /Unknown as of yet.

    This leaves Fairy, Rock, Fighting, Normal, Poison to go.

    Also, if the weather gets really bad, then you get "hazardous conditions", with little to no spawning. No bonuses to everything, and a gentle reminder to stay inside.

    Yeah, they did that for our snow storm here. Kept getting an extreme weather warning.
