If you want to do the raid, you have to coordiate, discord or a local facebook group.

Obviously you might get lucky randomly, but don't count on it.

[waiting for the NYC people to tell me I'm wrong]

I wasn't thrilled about connecting with random pogoers online at first, but every group I've joined with has been really nice to deal with.

yeah, in nyc, I can often just show up, but I have gone to raids where I didn't get enough people. when a new level 5 raid is just released it is pretty likely to get enough people immediately, but it really depends on where exactly in manhattan the raid is. if it's in the middle of Rockefeller center for example, it's guaranteed to have enough people by just showing up. if it's near my apartment which is more away from the middle of things, it's less likely.

I just checked to make sure I didn't accidently evolve him. I did not. gotta make sure not to do that. gotta throw him in gyms for bragging rights.
How exactly will anyone other than yourself know that it's a 100%, just from seeing it in a gym?

i'm tempted to power up my 100iv chansey to level 40, but that would make her motivation deteriorate faster, thus I hold back.

Now that I think about it, the only nicknames I see are the ones for my pokes, so maybe not.

They don't, which is why I ask.

I got into a bit of a friendly argument with a fellow raider about something similar. He had gotten a 98% Sableye from a raid, and I said, "But if you're not going to use stardust on it - because why would you use stardust on a Sableye? - then what's the point?" He replied, "Well, I can show it off by putting it in gyms!" But I was left wondering, who other than you is going to know that a 742CP Sableye (during the few minutes that it's fully motivated) is lvl20 98%IV?

Obviously, a perfect powered up to 30 (1118 CP) or 40 (1305 CP) might be cool to someone, I guess, but I'd rather put all that dust into something useful.

Incidentally, I need sun stones. I have several really good, boosted Sunkerns, along with a bunch of candy, and for some reason I'm keen to have a bunch of 1800+ Sunfloras.

Not to "brag about them in gyms" or anything, I just like them for some silly reason. Maybe because of the rarity of sun stones? Apparently I'm not entirely immune to the effects of artificial scarcity.
