You do get 100 dust per catch. You can get more candy from eggs hatching more so than just catching them. I have received as much as 10 candy from a hatch.


I keep finding eggs at pokéstops (there are literally hundreds of the things in London), but I don't have an incubator or any coins.

Do I have to buy one?

You have one with unlimited uses and you can buyou more. You also get some 3 use incubators as you level up. Just go to your pokemon and slide right to see the eggs and start the incubation. The higher the weight of egg, the rarer the pokemon

Yes. Listen to Bogus. Just keep catching whatever pops up. If nothing else, you can use the stardust.

Also, I'm pretty sure the candy received from hatching is determined by the size of the egg. For instance, my 5k egg hatched this morning. It was a Poliwag. I already had one in my inventory and hadn't caught any others. So I know I already had 3 candy for that pokemon. But after the egg hatch I ended up with 24 candy. That means that that 5k egg gave me 21 candy all by it's little lonesome. I'm halfway towards the 10k egg. I can only guess what one that size can possibly give you.

I don't know the candy amounts from eggs, but it *is* more than if you had caught it. One gave me 10 candy for example.

But today was OK! I went over to some more gyms, and took the Mystic gym at Hospice (yeah yeah morbid) with ease at it only had a Weezing and Pidgeot.

(it got took back about 20 minutes later)

BUT, nearby there was a Valor gym at the Japanese steakhouse. I noticed it was at Level 3 and filled to capacity, but it only needed 300 more Prestige for another level. Someone left a 150 CP Venonat as the first Pokemon (BMF's strategy), so in goes my Flareon for a quick 3-round spar to level up the Gym and allow me to leave MY Flareon there (this gym now has the Venonat, my Flareon, a 900CP Snorlax and 1000CP Vaporeon that already won 1 battle. I'm confident here. As of right now we still have this Gym.)

Niantic is now also accepting locations for new Pokestops and Gyms, so use this form and get to it! You can also report any dangerous/inaccessible stops or gyms there too.

That's because the game is currently a genuine epidemic. Everyone is playing and everyone is talking about it, enough that the presidential candidates have addressed it. Enough that my local sports talk radio station is talking about it. It is insane.

I have learned to stop hating filthy casual mobile games, I am really enjoying Pokemon Go. I have been trying to lose a lot a weight ever since I saw the scale read 211 pounds, every other day I have been biking 20-30 miles and playing Pokemon Go. Will there ever be any way to battle other people?

So guys. What do you think the odds are that Nintendo will create little Pokémon GO devices for children and the five adults of us left in this world who don't have smartphones? Or is there some kind of cheap alternative device that I can use? Something?

Because I am in legitimate pain that I can't play this game.

I'm just lucky that my good buddy Josh wanders around at midnight catching Pokémon on the west coast and actually takes the time to tell me about his adventures while they're happening. TRUE FRIENDSHIP

If you live in an area with good wifi coverage you could maybe get by with an affordable android tablet. Or get a cheap smartphone.
