More likely the person has a Switch and the Let's Go game.

A friend gave me a go at collecting some from a Mystery Box from his switch. Sadly, they were all mediocre, best one had an IV of 87. Now I want to find someone to trade with!

I wish they would let us long-distance trade with friends, at least once a day as a special!

Is there currently a more worthless pokemon, particularly hatched from an egg, than a Shuckle...?

This game is killing me.  I am still on 5/9 for the Meltan because I haven't seen a Grimer since before Thanksgiving.

Hey @Jaxom 1974 - we can hit BFF whenever you like, just please let me know ahead of time so I can pop a lucky egg. Thanks!

I'm still stuck on 3/9 - catch a Ditto. So many crap Pokemon caught looking for one...

It's way, way, way too slow to get Sinnoh Stones. 

Oh dear. Did you not get your ten by doing 5 battles with a friend and 5 battles with a trainer on Swinub Community Day?

My fellow players told me about it, I wouldn't have known otherwise.

They have been constantly bugging me to take pictures of pokemon. Now it turns out there is a new Gen 2 mon you can catch, but only if you take a picture with your new camera first. The pokemon, Smeargle, will try to photo bomb your picture. You can then catch him in the wild.

One of my friends said he had to take 267 pictures before Smeargle popped up. Maybe he started too soon, because another friend had Smeargle show up in his first picture.

Smeargle will have the moves of the pokemon you were taking a picture of.

No, I missed that. I didn't realize you can get them through trainer battles, I guess I'll try that avenue.

Yeah, you can get one reward per day when you fight your team leaders (go to the nearby pokemon/raid section, and scroll to the left) and 3 per day when you do pvp against another trainer. 

And that's by far the best way to get them. Otherwise you might, maybe, get one every week for your weekly field research. It's bullshit, and it's idiotic that they're not a field research quest drop or just a random spin drop from stops.

I didn't realize 10 were an option, but I did get 5...I think I only need two more for the current  available Shinnoh Stone upgrades...

It’s the one that shows up under Items. Touch the camera and your poke bag pops up, pick a mon to take a picture! Some people have posted really good pics!

eta: if you choose Magikarp, it will be monstrously huge!

Yah. That's the easy part.  Posting pictures where though?  On a specific site?

It's a lot easier than that now. Just go to any pokemon in your box and there will be a camera icon.

Once you finish taking pics, you can see them. Smeargle will be in it or not. If he is, he will spawn.

Is it mainly caught pokemon? Or one's you're catching? That's what I've not been 100% clear on.

You can do it for either, but I found it a lot easier to do it for the ones you've already caught.
