i do this too, but i'll wind up accidentally reviving them when mindlessly reviving others. i should just transfer them. they suck and always appear as the suggested pokemon.

There's a gym we can see from our house that is always changing over from one team to another. But the other day, I noticed there were no pokemon on it for something like 3 hours. I was working and couldn't leave right away to put something on it; I assumed it would be occupied at any time, but after awhile, I got a break in my work, so I drove over to claim for myself. I've never seen one sit empty for so long before.

Maybe I'm just clueless, but Aggrons usually kick ass for me except against Pokemon like Absol, etc.

i'm kind of clueless as to what beats what and don't have the attention span to really learn and memorize it. i just know that aggrons tend to suck any time i use them as the default.

Aggron has a very low attack stat, but very high defense stat. Plus steel has plenty of resistances, so the algorithm likes selecting it. But the DPS of an aggron is just not enough for a raid.

So far I've only seen 1 wild glameow, 0 purugly. The glameow I got wasn't bad at 84IV. Made it buddy, walked it 122KM so far. I need to walk it another 10k for enough candy for purugly.

I caught a purugly the day they released it, hadn't seen a glameow until this morning. Went to catch a murkrow first (being meta-relevant and all) by the time I did the glameow was gone.
