Team Instinct: Pokemon GO Iligan Generation 2

"Pokemon GO Iligan - Generation 2"

“Reign Of Tyranitar”

Since Pokemon GO Generation 2 was released last February 17, 2017 there’s still a lot of excitement in the air…

As Poke Trainers come face to face with new “pocket monsters” spawning everywhere and battle Gyms to add New Poke Defenders.


The thrill in encountering new Pokemon’s in the wild or hatched thru eggs now gave the game a new boost as a number of Poke Trainers are back in the game again and many are out putting lures to catch new ones and fill up their Pokedex.


But I believe none is much more exciting as evolving your first “Blissey,”

…being able to get all evolution “Special ‘RARE’ Items,”

…and of course, evolving the Monster of Terror, “Tyranitar!”

A lot of Poke Trainers saved up on their candies and Chansey’s for Generation 2 release to evolve the “High HP and Top Gym Defender, ‘Blissey!'”

A month since the release, one can always, that is, never fail to see “Blissey” in almost every Pokemon Gym available here in the City of Waterfalls… Iligan City, Philippines.

The Reign of the Monster of Terror “Tyranitar” has just begun as this one New Pokemon was just made available in Gen2 release…

Unlike Chansey that you’ll only be needing a number of candies to make Blissey.

First, …you’ll have to hatch a “Larvitar,” and consider yourself happy

or if you’ll catch a fully evolved “Tyranitar” in the Wild, you’re very lucky

or if it’s one “Pupitar” in the Wild you’ll catch then you are extremely lucky.

A Larvitar!

A Larvitar!

Other places are much luckier (or shall we say have more PokeStops), for only Six days passed since Gen 2 was released, “Tyranitar’s” with 2900+ CP were already found in their Poke Gym’s.


I haven’t even hatched my first “Larvitar” yet and here they are… already in PokeGym’s in another place… a place where I got my first “Larvitar and Swinub” sighting (too bad I failed to catch them both).

Guess, Poke Trainers there are just so lucky but like what is known…

“Pokemon GO” is all about getting up and about, travelling (especially for Regional’s, but hope Niantic will rotate them soon), that is what it’s all about.

Pokedex March 16 2017

Anyways, currently having caught or evolved “77 Pokemon’s” of the 100 New Pokemon’s made available for Generation 2…

a Month after its release is… let me just say…

“It’s Okay!”

For two days, March 15 and 16 seemed to be the culmination of what was called the “RUSH!”


Finally got my “Monster Of Terror” and the “Reign Of Tyranitar” commences.


However, most PokeGym’s are filled with “Blissey!”


Tyranitar to Blisseys: “…the cold shoulder eh?”

But for Tyranitar, you don’t see plenty… yet… as of now.

“Unofficial Count” for all Pokemon GO Team’s within the heart of Iligan City places Poke Trainer’s with Tyranitar’s at less than a “DOZEN” for now.

Team Instinct = 5






Team Valor = 3



No Tyranitar but the Account Holder has “Two” Tyranitar’s at 2k+ and 3k+ CP’s… didn’t find where he placed them at the time of writing this blog.

Team Mystic = 1


The “Reign Of Tyranitar” is here.


Now going back to “Blissey,” a lot of Pokemon GO Players today know that one PokeGym with several Blissey’s, three to begin with, is already hard to beat.


If it be a Level 3 to a Level 10 Pokemon Gym with at least 3 Blissey’s…

Taking it down “alone” would mean having several of your Pokemon’s fainting or the usual case, the “TIME” runs out before you could beat one high CP/HP “Blissey” Defender.

Brought down a Level 7 Gym once (alone) that was defended by:

a Vaporeon 2.5k+ CP (Water Gun/Hydro Pump),

a Rhydon 2.7k+ CP (Rock Smash/Megahorn),

a Snorlax 2.7k+ CP (Zen Headbutt/Body Slam),

a 2.8k+ CP Blissey (Pound/Psychic),

a Rhydon 2.9k+ CP (Mud Slap/Earthquake),

a Gyarados 3k+ CP (Bite/Dragon Pulse),

and a Dragonite 3k+ CP (Dragon Breath/Dragon Claw).

And I got stuck with Blissey!

Brought it down finally at the cost of “50+ fainted Pokemon Attackers”

From Battle XP’s… An average CP/HP Blissey with a Moveset of “Pound” and “Psychic” may only take “Three” Salvos of its Psychic Charge Move (if you take direct hits) in the course of battle… to make one of your 2k+ CP Attacking Pokemon Faint.

That is… if you don’t have the right “tank” Pokemon with the right MoveSets so to speak with enough CP to “Counter” one Blissey.


High CP/HP & Stamina – Blissey

An ardent Pokemon GO Player knows that “Blissey” has the highest in Stamina.

Type: Normal

Attack: 129

Defense: 229

Stamina: 510

Max CP: 3219

Normal Pokemon are weak to Fighting


If you’re wondering what other kind of Pokemon is also very effective in beating “Blissey” check this out and see.

Thy battle scars thy testament…


Here’s what I discovered…

Let’s take a look at this little experiment of mine I like to share with Y’all.



Right Moves but Low CP Ursa’s

Here’s what it looks like using “Higher CP’s…*”


So… there you have it.

Hope you’ll enjoy this tip!

“Works for me.”


*Three things makes “Ursaring” very effective in battling Blissey.

1. It’s also a Normal Type “GOD Tier” Pokemon (Attack: 236, Defense: 144, Stamina: 180, Max CP: 2760)

2. It has Fighting/Steel Quick Move Sets

3. It has Fighting/Fairy/Normal Charge Move Sets


So if it’s a higher CP Blissey defending then use one with a high CP…

And it may take one, two or three Ursa’s…

but when the smoke clears…


“Reign of Tyranitar”

…you’ll surely evict that overstaying “Blissey.”

It Doesn’t Get Any Better Than This (Pokemon GO)


via Daily Prompt: Center

By Far, Today’s The Luckiest Day Since Playing Pokemon GO

The 11th day, i.e., today, seemed to be the luckiest day playing and hunting since Generation 2 in Pokemon GO was released.

Talking about just starting another day of Poke hunting, it turned out to be one of the “greatest” day of the game… playing.

So for all of those of you out there who are also into the “Pokemania,” here’s the story…

First day:

I caught an “Ursaring” right away!


But “Quilava” went astray!


And “Feraligatr” to my dismay… ran away!

It’s Okay, better luck next time!

This one’s a tough one!

However, Today, the 11th Day…

After an “Azumarill” catch…

Later, a third “Phanpy” was hatched…

Boy, this day is going to be fun! Now, I can evolved me self a “Donphan!”

Oh, what a treat, gotta give myself a treat!


It all started with “Azumarill” and “Phanpy” but suddenly entered “Skarmory!”

Then the third “Mantine” followed…

And just when I had enough candies to evolved a”Lanturn,” things took on a new turn…

Party Hat Pikachu is in sight but couldn’t get to him coz’ traffic’s not that light!


Nevermind, I’ll get ya’ next time.


Side trip to the market and a grocery, another 10 km egg hatched a “Chansey!”

Pokemon’s abound in every turn, So I caught me a “Sunkern,” but so far away is “Quagsire,” although one wanted to catch it to thy heart’s desire.

And just when you’re done to take a rest… came a “Feraligatr!”

A “78% CP” got caught this time unlike the “42% CP” that ran away last time…

So that’s the “Feraligatr, Chansey, Mantine, Skarmory, Octillery” Journal above to back up thy story.

And just when things couldn’t get any better by far, along came a “Larvitar!”

Was already so happy… still came another “Phanpy!”

Okay, I finally hatched a “Larvitar!” And his “Defense” say’s “Spark,” rests a star.


So I tell myself…

“By far, today’s the luckiest day since I played ‘Pokemon GO!”

“I guess, I hope, I wish…”

“If I’d get a “10 km egg” on my next PokeStop, I’d say, it doesn’t get any better than this!”



“Be careful what you wish for… you might receive it…

…and I got it!”

So I can’t help but change my buddy…

“No regrets, got my ten, no consequences then…

but that only…”

Anyways, I thank you “Pineco,” you already got me enough candies.

Eventually, “Pineco” became “Forretress!”

“Like ‘Spark’ said, it’s not all about ‘CP’ but evolve the one that can ‘battle with the best of them,’ can’t you see?

Anyways, you can power-up after that, you’ve got enough candies.”

And that also goes out to you “Chansey” for you are now… “Blissey!”

Thank you!

I just had the “Luckiest Day!” of playing Pokemon GO!

Time to celebrate!

How’d I wish, team mates (Team Instinct Iligan)…

…you were all here to participate…

Would’ve love to invite you…

…if this you can partake.




Today seems like the luckiest day…

It feels like, me playing Pokemon GO today somehow centers around the 11th day.

Just when you are nearing completion of your initial Pokedex came the Second Gen Pokes.

The arrival of the Second Gen Pokes seems to show much promise to Poke Trainers here.


But looking at the game now, since it was released, its progress has gone from “Sweeping” to “Staggering.”

When in other Countries the game seems to be fast paced, for us here now it seems like a “Snail’s” pace.


Like Tangela, looks like the game is literally “Tangled” in its tracks once you get pass the thirties level.

But for those who are still on Levels 13 to 30, it’s a different story.


The Pokemania and craze in the local setting seems to go from “fun to bland” for a number now.

This game used to be fun but has changed somehow as you see the number of trainers are starting to dwindle now.

It’s slowly fading, becoming uninteresting and sad to say… getting boring for some.

Just hope the Game’s Developers bring in more events that’s beautiful before the game here becomes uneventful.


“not so shiny!”

“Where are those Legendary Pokes Zapdos, Mew, Mewtwo, Dragonites, etc. in the Wild here?”

Guess, we still need to level up some more to catch those powerful Pokes, it’s clear.


But right now, it sound’s like the game is slowly getting unpopular here, Oh dear!
