    The Aero is making me come back for this week, really. Only encountered one yet. I want a few more.

    This is more a technical issue, but has anyone else had trouble connecting with the GPS lately?

    Recently mine has refused to find a GPS signal no matter what. I've tried updating it and even uninstalling and reinstalling the app to no avail.

    The weird thing is that other apps that use a GPS signal (like maps for instance) work fine. I've tried looking online and did some of the tips but nothing is working.

    My best Golem is a maxed out Rock Throw / EQ 93%, it does the job but yeah Stone Edge would be neat. I have a Rock Throw / SE one with max Atk but it's level 10,,,

    Given you can snipe, just hang around the sniping Discords and wait for one to pop up. Otherwise you're going to rely on the dreaded moveset RNG until you roll it.

    Sniping as it was defined before is dead, yes, but Discords that specialize on sniping have found workarounds that I've seen friends use (primarily, waiting 2 hours between actions). The sniping community is "thriving" off this until Niantic patches it fully (which I can't wait for, it's cancer that ruins the game).

    For what it is worth no spoofing / sniping app is down atm except tutu (VIP is up tomorrow, reg is done iirc) so most people can spoof just fine (yay).

    It's not appropriate for this thread but PM me if you genuinely want that and I'll shoot you the details.

    It seems that larvitar now spawns due to the event. I have two on nearby atm so evidently fairly readily as well.

    What effect will easily available tyranitar have on the gym meta? I feel like it'll be nice since this means both a solid attacker and a very high CP defender that sits at the top of gyms and discourages people from putting in the (relatively lower CP) blissey. Even relatively low-level ttar will still sit higher than even level 40 blissey. Personally, I feel like this'll be a good thing - ttar is taken down a lot easier with a wide variety of common attackers.

    and today is the day the game decides it likes to crash, and forces me to restart the game after not playing it for an hour, meaning no login...

    PTC is having issues (of course) atm which is locking out a ton of players lol.

    Google master race!

    EDIT: Of note is that Slugma has increased spawns for this event.

    If the event's already started, I need to troubleshoot why I'm not getting the update on time.

    Yeah it started already. It's biome dependent (again).

    Rumor mill has it that Larv spawns have been massively nerfed ala Dratini...

    explain this... I think a spoofer is hitting gyms here, one went down in at about 6pm.. by 8pm there is a blue name I have never seen... it was grey for 2 hours.. in a park.. with 2 other gyms inside.. others have been left untouched..

    Sniping has nothing to do with gyms. It's the way spoofers used to catch Pokemon unchecked before Niantic changed some things during the Grass event.

    Spoofers (and the ability to spoof) have not stopped existing since August so yeah the possibility of seeing names you've never seen before is high and will likely stay that way for a while. Gyms being gray / blue / whatever is just a manner of how someone chooses to take a gym: they can either leave it blank, strat it to 10, or just make a weak level 3 one. It is not an indication of a spoofer as they also may choose to do w/e with the gyms.

    it is when they have been caught... the problem is the gyms keep going grey... then nothing happening, but this is happening, we cleared them out after random, instincts just swept through the place, now it is single gyms being picked off, on top of the usual spoofer

    I haven't found any larvitars, I caught them before the event in local area, interesting... glad I got them earlier, at least the walking time is less and I can power up what I have! Super glad my Tyranitar is over 3400!

    That's great that you finally caught a couple.

    What app do you use to view IVs?

    What is the event goal? Just catch as many different rock-type Pokémon?

    Ironically I just hatched a Larvitar egg today!

    I don't snipe for Pokémon anymore since the update, so all my catches are based on local areas. Legit!

    My check is IV Calculator: you can take a screenshot and it calculates the rest for you.
    Here is a sample:
