Never i had saw this level of frustration trying to get 1 Pokemon since i did with my first Mewtwo.
I tried as many 10km eggs as possible, up to 50 since gen 4 has been released. I had tried regular 10km eggs and they managed to hatch anything but Shinx and Riolu. Then to the main part;
* I hatched adventure sync 10km eggs and deliberately left at least 2 slots for it. I was rewarded a slap in the face WITHOUT FAIL by the dreaded Shinx hatch 2 weeks in a row.
* I hatched around 5 10km eggs this week. Again, i was rewarded with nothing BUT Trapinches. Trapinch OVER Trapinch WITHOUT FAIL.
God i want a Riolu, but trying to get this Pokemon is just dread. If it's a scheme to have us buy egg incubators it's hardly working, if it's a scheme to make us fall into despair it is working in chilling accuracies.
This is literally the new EX Raid insanity over again. Never i felt the frustration that is on par with getting my first Mewtwo after i got it but THERE IT IS. Remember i had saw ALL 10km egg hatch combinations save for Riolu.
Dread and despair in its finest form. Junko Enoshima, Monaca Towa and Tsumugi Shirogane are all laughing in the pits of hell waiting for pay day and to trap the Naegis and Saihara in along with them. And this sums up as nothing more than my suffering just now.
Go play something else for a while. I'm currently visiting my parents in a rural area so playing GO is barely an option. I'm having a blast playing Let's GO on the switch, a polished and bug free game (nostalgia also plays a part i guess but i had no faith in that game at all, in fact i borrowed a copy from a friend). I got my first shiny today and it feels great, no free to play schemes to make you grind or use your credit card to death and have RNG take away your reward anyways. I religiously played GO for 7 months everyday and was so invested that it stressed me out every time things didn't go my way.
From time to time is nice to take a breather out of it, maybe you can get someone to trade that Riolu (although i guess you want to hatch it yourself)
Agreed. All, let's please stop feeding the troll. If Mr-ex777 wants to post serious stuff, that's fine. But when he goes all hyperbolic, back off. Hint: if you read the words death, rape, murder, grief, or various expletives referring to excrement, it's probably time to leave him alone with his thoughts.
Ahhhh... I think I am starting to understand some of the source of hyperbole in his, hers or their posts: bad translator. As someone who is bilingual (English and korean), I know that some things just get lost in translation. Japanese (the last paragraph tipped that off) and korean being kinda similar, this person might be wanting to convey simple frustration (still think a bit much but not as bad as it comes across in the posts) that gets amplified because of poor translation. I know that in the korean language, people will say something that literally translates into “I want to die because of the waiting” but in actual context and usage, it’s juts kind of like saying, “I can hardly wait becaue I am so nervous/ excited” in English.
Mr-ex777, choose a better translation tool or maybe have an English speaking friend look your posts over? As it is, your posts are generating more snark and eye rolls than discussion.
Oh, and as for the Riolu thing... rng... shrug... I got one last week... haven’t hatched a single shinx... I think most people here would not call successive shinx hatches “dreaded”
Possible, but seems unlikely in my opinion. The use of genuine english expressions, correct syntax (in my eyes of non-native english speaker at least) and above all else the extensive use of capitals, sometimes with stars in between (see https://pokemongo.gamepress.gg/q-a/pay-win-riolu-casino) tend to suggest this is genuine human typing. Besides, would this translation matter really cause so many occurrences of the worlds "death", "destruction", "filth", "doom" and so on when trying to translate a more quite text? I'm not familiar with this particular case of translation so you've got the experience advantage here :) but that seems weird.
