    Bug Bought Burn Drive and didn't receive it.

    Might be a good idea to post the auction ID as well. I suppose it might be difficult to determine whether or not you've actually used the same drive already and are not just asking for a free drive (from a moderator's viewpoint). Good luck though.

    Bug catching pokes

    I encounter this problem regularly as well. What I've been doing to circumvent it is clicking on the button multiple times to make sure it is selected. You could try doing that too from now on if the issue isn't fixed anytime soon.

    Resolved wrong evolution

    You mentioned this before and I wasn't trying to be sarcastic or rude when I replied, sorry. What did you expect? Trapinch evolves into Vibrava, which evolves into Flygon.

    Answered exp boost

    1. It is not an event item, it was released in the latest update. 2. Besides auctions, it is available in mystery boxes as a middle or top tier reward (not guaranteed). 3. When used, experience points gained from battling is multiplied by 2x for 30 minutes.

    Answered Auction timings

    Set up your own timezone in the options tab, and the auctions will be displayed in that time. By default (if you haven't chosen a timezone), I think it's displayed in UTC since the latest update.
  8. The entire page is coming along really nicely and it's encouraging me to stock up on some avatars. I think a search function would be nice to have as it'd easily let us search for an avatar to see if we have one or not rather than scrolling down and remembering their location by Pokedex number. Right now we can't use Control/Command+F to search either since avatars don't have their names underneath them. A search bar (like one that exists in the Pokedex) would keep the page from becoming busy with names. I know it's in beta, just something that popped up in my mind

    Answered Training

    There's this: Alternatively you can use these: TrainDark TypeBug TypeDragon TypeElectric TypeFairy TypeFighting TypeFire TypeFlying TypeGhost TypeGrass TypeGround TypeIce TypeNormal TypePoison TypePsychic TypeRock TypeSteel TypeWater Keep in mind that Pokemon that do not have any immunities must be at level 100 to have an easier time battling. These training accounts are much better for either training exp or training Pokemon that have immunities (Ghost, Dark, Normal etc.).

    Feedback In-Game Clock

    This is only an issue if you have chosen a timezone different to your own, in which case, it is 100% your own fault. If you have chosen your own timezone, you should be able to look at your own clock for this. Adarsh isn't requesting to remove the 10 second timer. He's arguing that the in-game clock and its seconds helped with timing when his battles could end so that he wouldn't hit the timer and be forced to restart the battle. Just because some players have different goals doesn't mean the timer should be removed. It's not in place for the sole purpose of slowing down exp trainers, it's there for anti-cheating reasons and probably more I presume. There are reasons to argue against that, but that's a whole other story.
  13. But they're not outdated browsers.
  14. Can confirm, it has always been an issue on Safari. I'm not too confident on the specifics, but I think it's because of the browser engine that Safari uses (Webkit). I can recreate the issue using Epiphany/Gnome Browser on Linux which also uses Webkit: Edit: Actually now that I think about it, I think the same issue occurs on Microsoft Edge. I can't test it myself at the moment but I feel like I recall facing the same bug there. They don't use Webkit so I don't know anymore. They are switching over to use Chromium soon though I think, so it'll probably be fixed on Edge by then.

    Resolved Clock not showing

    The in-game clock is being removed as of v4.2.x, which has gradually been rolling out in the past couple of hours. This is because you are now able to go into the Options tab (from the left of your screen) and adjust the in-game time according to your own preferred timezone. You only get to do this once as it is a permanent change on your account, meaning you could hypothetically make a separate account in a different timezone for access to both night and day Pokemon. Doing so will change every occurrence of time in-game into your own time, making the in-game clock redundant which is why it is being removed. For now, you should be able to change the game to your own preferred timezone, but it will not update the in-game times immediately. This aspect will be rolling out very soon. More info on the update can be found here
