since i don't see any posts yet about what peoples findings have been so far i thought a thread like this may help. so please if you found out anything about the games mechanics please share!

my findings till now:

-berry's don't appear at pokéstops till you are lvl7++
-a maxed out pokémon can get higher cp again everytime you level up the trainer.
-you can take items from a pokestop about once every 6minutes or so.
-your pokémon don't need to keep a gym for 21hour to claim the reward for it, just make sure you claimed the gyms in your area right before you go claim the pokecoins for the day, also beat the gym and put a lower level pokémon there, keep your strong pokémon to capture the other gyms, especially in places where there are not many pokémon trainers.
-not all pokémon are the same, they have a move pool, if you got a grass pokémon try to evolve one that has a water move for example to surprise fire type pokémon.
-try different areas, some areas really suck when you're looking for pokémon. best way to find pokémon seems to be by driving around.
-i don't know if it's just random luck but i seem to have extreme high pokémon encounter rates around hotels. so far it worked really well close to renaissance hotel (in curacao) and Divi flamingo beach resort (in Bonaire) in those areas you don't have to walk hundreds of meters to encounter another pokemon. i've tested over a period of two days in both areas.

  • stockpile pidgey/rattata/weedle candy
  • find a pokestop (or cluster of pokestops)
  • put a lure on one
  • activate incense
  • activate lucky egg
  • evolve a bunch of pidgey/rattata/weedle (the lucky egg will get you 1,000xp per evolution)
  • level up like crazy
ever wanted to go from level 10 to level 20 in like... three days? here's your answer

level 20 ultra balls available. get 20 for level up and available from pokestops. farming experience can be hit and miss. areas of high concentrations of pokestops seem to work best. a park with a couple of pokestops may not give much. but lots do it in high concentration areas. I always have lures close by active

sorry mate, if you have a pokelure and use it is is gone forever.

i used 2 lures today on stops that were on top of each other and used an incense on top of that but the servers kept crashing on me, game was freezing with half the pokemon i caught. also no rare pokemon show up, just allot of shitty ones that were always in the area.

also found out that the only way to obtain snorlax at this moment is from 10KM eggs.

Quick/lazy way to hatch eggs:

Note that it MUST be a rotary/carousel model - otherwise there'll be no pedometer/accelerometer movement.

or you could use a record player to do that or a fan :)

but i mean when they are installed do they act just like the incense do and last for the 30 minutes and once the 30mins are up they disappear like the incense do sorry if im not clear in writing my questions

I'm not entirely sure that would really work - but I may be wrong. Has anybody here actually tried it? Because the GPS won't really show any movement.
