My friend got 33 Candy from an old Larvitar 10K egg.

Whew.

Also did my latest evolve spree, got around 220K Exp and I'm now at level 31.

I also checked my Pokedex and realized I only need Charizard, Nidoqueen, Garyados, and Dragonite to complete my Kanto Pokedex outside of legendaries and regional Pokémon (outside of Tauros, which I have)

Crazy. Maybe I'll have the dex done before the one year anniversary of the game.

Did my last lucky egg as well, about 40 evolves, a 10k hatch, and the daily streaks mixed in. Was good for around 130k XP.

The 10k hatch was a Dratini with 34 candies. IVs at 91%, finally something worth evolving. I maxed him out at 3167CP as a Dragonite with SW/Hurricane for the moveset. I now have 3 Dragonites over 3k CP, with one stuck in a gym since the first week of Jan and the other since mid Feb right before gen 2 launched.

My Pokedex now sits at 223. Gained a Hitmontop today, which is grwat and lucky since it had both HP & Defense as max stat. Saw a Ursaring in the wild too, which really helped.

I also am sitting on 2 more 10k eggs. 1 will hatch in a few hours and the other I'll hatch by this weekend probably. I really hope for a Larvitar. Need more candy!

Used the 2 Lucky Eggs I had left and evolved for an hour burning through all the candy reserves I had.

Got 300k xp and hit level 32.

My 100% Chikorita became a Razor Leaf/Solar Beam Meganium which I'm stoked about.
Plus Fire Spin/Fire Blast Charizard, two double ice move Cloyster, and Frost Breath/Avalanche Jynx.

Yeah the new nests are bad for me too. Though I'm getting to the point where there aren't many nests that would be useful for me now, I just need a couple of hours in a Chikorita nest and I'll be done with nesting Pokemon.

Hatched a Tyrogue and evolved a Hitmontop, dex is at 224 now!

I don't care about nests anymore. Need a Totodile one to get back to Croconaw in my living dex, but otherwise I have nothing that I need that nests. With 6 fighting and 4 fire Pokémon to go for those medals, I don't even care about those in nests anymore either.

If you're done with all the current nesting evolutions, it doesn't hurt to stock up for the plethora of gen 4 evolutions. I hit up a Sneasel nest the other day because he's very hard to find around here.

so as someone not as familiar with Gens 3/4/5 --- what candies should we be hoarding for future evolutions?

Porygon I know (fuuuuuck)
Sneasel?

so gotten 6 Sun stones, 3 king rocks, 2 upgrades, and 1 dragon scale... no metal coats :(

Went to check out another nearby nest (Marill, bleh), when I hatched Aerodactyl and Girafarig from 2K's, on top of another Grimer! This just leaves Hitmonlee for the Kanto dex! Then I spent my last Lucky Egg evolving a bunch of crap and got around 125K XP; 95K to go to level 33!

True. There is a lot of non nesting stuff coming though. And a lot of babies.

Will probably spend the last 30 mins or so of this event just mass evolving what I can. I don't really have enough to want to spend a Lucky Egg but with the Double XP event this is basically a "free" Lucky Egg, so may as well use it.

Nooo. One of my 10k eggs was Porygon.

Still, I got a 5km egg from the next pokestop, so that's better.

The water event was the first one to end right on time, I saw all the magikarp fade way along with my hopes of finding a shiny.

I could have hatched so many more eggs if I hadn't given-up when I thought the event was ending.

But I'm happy with getting 2x 10km and 1x 5km eggs on the last day.

I hatched only a few eggs but I hatched my first Lapras and caught a wild Dratini 96%iv. Didn't play much but got one 10km egg during the event and zero 5km eggs.
Got enough candies for three Dragonites now but I believe I've left it to late and won't get one that has Dragon Breath.

I thought CP was the only variable. So a level 30 player could catch the same pokemon as a Level 15 player, and they would have totally different IVs? I thought IV was persistent across all levels.

Once you get to 30, everything is the same at least.

Hatched a 91% Lapras from a 2k egg.

The event is still delivering from beyond the grave.

I probably have another 2-days-worth of eggs left to hatch.

I too filled up my stash before the event ended. Have 8 2KM and 1 5KM, I'll just be hatching one at a time now though.

Reached level 34 no problem and made some nice progress to 35, on top of all the new dex entries out of 2KM eggs this was my favorite event so far.

Still got my 4th and final 10k to hatch. Will be hatched sometime within the next few hours. Have about 175k xp to gain till lv 34. Prob will happen by end of April. I hope my last 10k egg is another Larvitar. I hatched one yesterday and gained about 25 candies. Not bad. A Mareep from earlier in event gave me 16... So could have been worse. That candy gave me about 500cp boost to my Tyranitar. Now at 2500ish cp.

For Gen 2 Pokemon. I hatched a lot. At least 6 Chicoritas, 2 Chinaquils & 2 Totodile. Hell, I have 1 more 5k from event on me.

Really glad that they added dates to eggs now. Will be useful in figuring out which eggs to hatch 1st so I can get rid of the event eggs.

I walked a lot yesterday, hatching a bunch of eggs and trying to get one last guaranteed good 10km. Alas, all I picked up were 2 kms. And I wasn't going to be able to get more walking in until 8 PM, four hours after the event would have ended. So that was it for me.

But then the event didn't end, it kept going! So I set out for my regular nightly walk-with-the-dog/Pokemon hunt and headed for the nearest Pokestop. One of my eggs hatched on the way so I had one open spot to get another egg, my last chance at a 10 km. And then, literally about 100 feet from the Pokestop, the event ends. Nooooo!

I'm going to completely empty my egg sack, before re-filling it under the usual egg situation. Time for 9x 5km eggs again.

I did pretty well out of the event:

From 5k eggs: Chikorita, Chikorita, Chikorita, Totodile
From 10k eggs: Chansey, Mareep, Porygon

(There might have been another 10k that I am forgetting).
