caught my first Zapdos today in Grand Central. Had 12 premium balls and ended up using 8 to catch it after point blank missing on a few attempts. The animation is a bit strange (zig-zag) and you basically have to throw it as it's about to finish. Also, I had to change my curveball technique a slight bit to be more accurate by starting the throw on the middle of the screen rather than the corner.

IV is a bit low, so have to shoot for more this week

update:

Got my third Zapdos yesterday afternoon. I got a 93% IV, which is my highest of the 3. My goal is to try to get another Lugia before the Zapdos raids end, which might be possible, but I'll need a big enough crew for that.

The key is the curveballs and a good amount of patience.

It'll be easier for you to catch stuff. Not easy, but EASIER than the rest of us. :D

Also,it's smarter to not max out your Pokemon and it'll save you mad Stardust.

3/5 so far on Zapdos. Both he and Moltres my best is 90% IIRC. But I've got a 97% Lugia and Articuno.

Dragonite is gonna be a new Raid Boss! :rockon:

I'll take that.

I'm 4/5 on Zapdos, as I caught one at Grand Central. My highest is 93% with Zapdos and 89% for Moltres (2). Only 84% on my Lugia (just one) and 93% on Articuno (2).

I tried to get a Lugia today to no luck. That'll be my goal over the last few days.

Dragonite's gonna be an easy raid boss. All those ice pokemon you've tried to get to beat Zapdos & others will be clutch. Also, Golems & Magnetons will dent Dragonite.

Also, Zapdos & Articuno are gonna have a field day, just like in the video games :lol:

Yup, that's true too.

I attempted to be greedy and do a Tyranitar raid as well. Didn't work out as planned, oh well.

0/5 today. They were just NOT staying down today, popping out even after just one shake of the ball. Looks like I'll end off 4/11 on Zapdos (best Zapdos appears to still be 90% I think).

I'll trade you my percentage on catching Zapdos for your percentages in catching Lugia, fair deal? :lol:

Mewtwo is live too (later for worldwide).

But, I doubt anyone thought they'd be a one-shot deal. Most expected they'd come around again. We just didn't know when.

I imagine Mewtwo will make Lugia look like Magikarp in terms of catchability. :(

I haven't participated in any legendary raids other than 3 Lugia raids. Went 0/3.

Have been caring less about this game as Niantic makes the game much less playable for F2P players. :nonono: :nonono: :nonono:

so niantic said the raids starting/ending too early is a bug which originated from the chicago go fest. with the next update (who knows when), the raids will most likely end around 10pm.

3/3 in raids today. 1 Lugia (2nd overall, 2/4), 1 Moltres (3rd overall, 3/5 or 6), and 1 Zapdos (5th overall, 5/7).

Niantic's being petty giving away potions as prizes for winning raids lol

Which is great, but I'd rather fix the last ball bug and the lag. :(

I have been doing Lugia Raids far less now (mainly because you never know if you'll get a full party, and you need at least 14 to take him down), and also because I have a 97% one and two 90% ones.

I think I have 7 Lugia now, 5 Zapdos (this MoFo has actually been the hardest for me to catch), and about 12 Moltres (including another 90% one it seems today), and 6 Articuno.

The package that has the Premium Raid passes for less (490 coins I think), will end on the 21st incase you still want it.

[EDIT: i'm low on Hyper/Super potions so I'm kinda glad. But you're still getting TMs and Rare Candy too.
