In my experience, the weather status is sunny more than all other types of weather combined.

It's usually windy or partly cloudy here when not raining. Sunny weather rarely remains for more than an hour at a time, except at night, past the raid curfew.

I've only seen fog a few times in early winter mornings, around 3~6 AM. It doesn't snow here, but we do get the occasional hail, which IMO should count as snow in the game.

I asked Niantic and they said you're supposed to go travel somewhere where it is snowing or foggy there. I told them it isn't convenient or cheap and I dont have the means to travel around the world for a video game, and that no matter how hard I tried, the birds I come across can't seem to learn Fly and carry me around the world. They hung up.
No way, dude! This is NOT happening again...

So is anyone surprised that it's earth power? How does it alter pvp now?

It of course depends on where you live, but for my example, doesn't this make him not correct, since Flygon wouldn't be "trash" if he's more useful most of the time? For the "otherwise" to be applicable, "sunny weather" would have to not exist.


I live in a cloudy and partly cloudy area, for the most part. Clear might be the third most common weather for me.

Sunny/Clear weather does still leave Flygon trailing behind Excadrill, Groudon, Golurk, Garchomp, and Mamoswine. I suppose our thresholds for "trash" may vary, but "6th best against one type in the right weather" probably doesn't move the needle much unless you're really slim on Ground types.


O snap!

I considered that, but instead I wound up listening to the leader of a fan club who gave me a coupon for a free bicycle.

well...to be fair, excadrill, golurk, and garchomp don't exist. so that puts it third. and groudon is not currently obtainable if you don't already have it, and candies are hard to get, making it a possible second.

still, it being behind mamoswine is pretty bad. did you omit rhyperior on purpose, Mizz? i didn't think mamoswine was outperforming rhyperior.

On my original check it looked like EP Flygon and Rhyperior were pretty much dead equal in DPS, each taking the lead at times depending on situation. After double checking, sure, you could probably throw Rhyperior ahead most of the time, too.

Guess that one's a biome thing? Though our area is definitely not one for Ground types generally, I've caught probably 9 or 10 Drillbur and a wild Excadrill (and seen another on nearby that I couldn't get to).

And as I type this, someone just posted another Excadrill sighting >_>

seems pretty much like cranidos. ALL THE TIME posts are going on about how "well, now that we have cranidos, that's what we base raiding ability on" when...you're lucky if you have evolved one yet around here, and you've been walking it solely if you have one powered enough to use in raids.

i mean...it's freaking pseudo legendary rare here.

which is funny, cuz pseudo's aren't rare in other places. it's really effing weird, too, cuz man, Vegas isn't like a small freaking town or something. It's just not cool enough to get an important biome.

Cranidos is still very rare in my area.
The occasional Drillbur and only one or two Excadrill.
