Has anyone had luck going at a level 3 solo? I'm level 29 and have strong water pokemon and got a Flareon down to about 10% before I timed out. I'm assuming someone in the low 30's would be able to go solo but just curious.

Edit: Just saw this article. Apparently level 3 solo are feasible but Flareon wasn't the right one to attempt first.

Nice to know it's not just me. Pretty lame though. If I'm not going to get even a shot at the good jawns, then raids aren't really even worth it.

Picking a team might be the end for me. Played every day on Team No Team, and enjoyed it very much. Since I picked a team though, interest has been fading.

Trying to hold as many gyms in my neighborhood is what kept my attention. Its pointless to try and control every gym, as the coin max is only 50. Now any defender over 3k degrades substantially faster than under 3k. So all the star dust spent capping defenders was a complete waste. And no start dust for defending except for feeding berries...For the most part any interest I had is currently fading. Fast and Charge tms are cool and all, but raids are pretty redundant. They are catering to casual players at the expense of hardcore players.

I play it. But if you don't find the term "hardcore Pokémon player" anything short of hilarious, youre in way too deep man

Articuno raid a couple blocks away right now. Too lazy to get off the couch though. Being that I know there won't be enough other players there to take it down. Pretty cool the legendaries are in play either way.

Ended up going. Three little kids, and I got our butts kicked. Anxious to try with a team of like level players.

Curious if daily/premium raid passes will continue to work for legendaries once the Fest bonuses are over. Also, when are said Fest bonuses over?
