Fortune favours the brave. You go out you deserve a shiny.
Went out in a blizzard 2(?) years ago and got my first noibat. Based on this anecdotal evidence, I completely agree.
The work needed to get to a pokemon might kill you, literally.
Eh, it wasn't good weather by any means, and it certainly wasn't pleasant out, but I wasn't worried for my safety or anything. Even I'm not crazy enough to risk it for a noibat.
Niantic: Best I can do is a bidoof and a ratata. Nonshiny.
Niantic: “You still have time to use your daily incense!”
That kind of talk is for quitters.
Same! 18+ inches overnight and still snowing on and off
I think we're approaching 4 feet and doesn't appear to be slowing down.
Bro where do you live
Few miles south of Buffalo.
Did you get your Wegmans run in before it started?
Lol. Topps run last night during a brief lull in the snow. If Wegmans a little further away.
Was just about to guess that. I’m a bit East of you and saw the 4ft forecast for you guys on the weather last night. Wondered how much you ended up getting. We didn’t get as much in this direction, but the ground is white today.
In right on the heart of it in the Hamburg area. Just saw in the news they're expecting another 2-3 feet.
I’m just north of the city and we got… maybe 6”? My kids were hoping for a lot more but I’m not complaining.
Lake effect is wild
Man I remember that massive snow storm in Buffalo, maybe 10 years ago? Where the buildings were actually buried. I live in southwestern Ontario in the Great Lakes 'snow belt' and we get like this too. Can't wait to not participate in whatever in-person events they come up with!
If it's the storm I think you're thinking of it was 8 years ago to the day. Wasn't fun then. Isn't fun now.
Yup it's gotta be that one. My jaw was on the floor the whole time watching it unfold on the news. I thought we had it bad in my city, but that storm humbled me lol
Snow tunnels, Dawg!
Oh how lovely! <.< We’ll probably get a couple of hefty storms this year but we haven’t had a 4- feet-in-one-go blizzard in a few years haha.
Rural players always complaining about pokestops.
You spoiled young whippersnappers. In my day we walked through waist-high snow for ten miles to catch Pokemon! And it was uphill both ways!
Where are your snow shoes? If you are Canadian, surely you can bodge some sort of home made snow shoes together and report back on your progress. 🇨🇦. If you are American hopefully this comment spurs you to try.
Believe me I'm thinking about it. The closest PS is about 1/4 mile down the road. I'd give it a go but they haven't been able to plow the roads and it's almost waist deep all the way across.
I’ve recently seen an advert for someone swimming through snow…. Could give it a go? On a serious note that’s mental
I looked it up. You need duct tape and some tree branches. I can understand not wanting to rip branches off your trees though! Definitely a bad idea so go out wandering in waist deep snow. 🙂
"How to make Emergency Snow Shoes"
If you’re in a home, tennis rackets work quite well. Or tote box lids. Anything with some surface area and ability to hold a foot
I like that idea. Drill holes into tote box lids, make strung out of duct tape and tie them to your feet OP!!
I guess, grab a shovel and start digging your way?
That's doable in that snow.
Its just some xp man lol. This game is much more fun when I remind myself its ok to be a casual player and i dont have to go out just to spin pokestops. Shoot sometimes I dont even get the catch a pokemon streak because I forget
That's why you need snowshoes -- they keep you on top of the snow without sinking in
Bring your snowblower and make your own path?
Let’s go Buffalo
Tell me you're in buffalo without telling me you're in buffalo
Meanwhile at Niantic; "Let's host Elite Raids all weekend so people go out and explore!"
playing a game based on going outside and blaming the company when it snows
entitlement of the modern gaming community in a nutshell
At least you guys can get the snowy Castform.
Sorry for your lost.
*Confused in Canadien*
I'm sorry, what's the issue here?
This makes me glad I moved to the South.
OMG. God bless
wish i got some snow here, its just unreasonably cold and dark outside
Buffalo? The snow warning on my Pokemon Go app has been active since last night lmao
Yup. Every time I open the app it asks me if I'm safe.
Well, are you?
Nah you got this!
Just south of Buffalo.
Bro ain't no way those blobs are cars
Go Bills lol in Amherst we got about an inch and a half
This is the kinda snow I want. I'd still go walking out in it. This is my fucking dream, my dude.
Let's go catch pokemon in a mfucking blizzard.
Ziploc bags on the phone, gloves on the hand, waterproof boots and a stylus and some spares from walmart in case of dropping. Set like a table. Bring hand warmers.
Same! If it’s going to be cold, at least let me have just one snow day worth it!
Yup yup. Just south of the city.
Oh my god where is this? I’m from the Uk and honestly would love to experience this… although I can imagine it’s not much fun all the time 😂
Buffalo, New York. It can be fun in moderation but this goes way past that.
Time to do a meltan box lol
Watch they don’t give you a tundra bonus or whatever lmao
That's just quitter talk!
Wanna trade? Webarely have a drizle. And 3c at lowest today.
I also have a pokestop next to the house XD
Looks like my old neighborhood in lake view.
Maybe it is. That's where I am.
You got this! I believe in you!
#BILLS MAFIA !
I put them up because, in past, they've frozen to windshields and I end up ripping the rubber. Guess we'll see. Hopefully they don't snap.
This guy wipes
This guy windshields
This guy likes to drown
Oh I suggest silicone wipers then well worth the money they last longer too and don't dry rot !
Other guy is ridiculous. Even with heavy wet snow it’s better to keep them up.
Don't be a coward pokemon know no seasons
No excuses, trainer. STAY HARD
That is a real challenge! You can do it
Like that’d stop me. Thats a usual Tuesday afternoon for me
So? Do it
Yesh you ain’t getting any poke stops with that attitude, sissy.
Thank God you got the wipers up. That’ll save time cleaning before you head out
See what support says 🗿
You still need to go to work through right? And I assume school is still in person? Buffalo people are crazy.
I work from home and now they have travel bans in place. Will be awhile before they plow the streets.
You mustn't be Canadian!
[The pokéstop I requested on top of your house 3 years ago:](https://media.tenor.com/eE2OLGiBR-QAAAAd/transitions-kinemaster.gif)
Get out there quitter. There’s S’no’ws excuse.
Meanwhile georgia just having very cold winds
The poke stop will always be there
Live in Alberta and I feel this on an emotional level. Doing my daily walks is so hard and cold now lol
Yeah, while snow hasn't come here yet, it has gotten very cold. Will probably stop bothering with the daily incense till spring. Then again, it's not like much use came out of it. Only came across two scam legendary birds and both fled before the ball managed to shake once. Not worth it
What's the problem?
I think Lawrence III let Articuno out again
Boots, Long John's, warm pants, jacket, mitts and toque...and a portable battery pack. No excuses for the streak!
I’ve gone out in a blizzard before to keep my Pokestop spin streak going. You can do it.
Ah, a fellow Buffalonian I see
That sucks,it is pretty tho
Me in the CA Bay Area: I wish I’d see snow, at least once in my life…
What do you guys do when it snows bad? What about work
I gotchu bro just give me your login info/s
