What and How to Trade in PokemonGo

Trading of PokemonGo has been going for sometime. Decided to share some personal experience to some of those who are new or just came back again to PokemonGo.
Trading could be something new and here are some sharing of from my experience to you.

Before trading was introduce, whenever you caught a low IV Pokemon you will likely to trade with Professor for candy.  Now with trading there is a good chance not only you get More Candies and also a chance to get higher IV or a Lucky Pokemon.

So the question would be what and How you need to trade in PokemonGo.

More Candies
When you trade with professor you would get 1 candy of that Pokemon you trade in. Trading with other players may give you more of that candy when the original location of that Pokemon was caught.

Trading will Re-roll the Pokemon you traded
It is true and I learned in a hard way that if you trade a Pokemon, the IV of that Pokemon reached to the other play could be different. There is a chance that it will become lower IV than before trading. The best bet would be getting a high CP Pokemon even though it has a lower IV, when re-roll, the CP is roughly still the same.

The best way to trade is a Pokemon that CP is higher than 75% as the odds it turn into a higher CP is higher. Just make sure the other player do the same then you may have higher chance to get Lucky Pokemon as that will only happen when both trading are in "Wonder" Class.

Trading regularly would not only increase friendship level that translate to using lesser stardust (trading price to pay is cheaper) but also you need to build that friendship level to trade higher class Pokemon like legendary Raid Pokemon or Shiny Pokemon.

Remember the Distance matter
When you are trading with another player remember the distant must be within 100 meter of each other and also the distance of the origination of both Pokemon to calculate the amount of Candies you both will get.

In my personal experience, always have some keep some high CP Pokemon with you for trade with any players as you do not know when and where you may meet your Pokemon friend to trade should he have some Pokemon you did not have.

In short, be Generous. It would not cost you any real money but you never know when someone would return a favor by giving you a Pokemon you never had a chance to meet before.

Hope you get your trading partners soon!

Beginner Tips for Ghostbusters World

After playing for a week, here are some tips I got for those who are starting out on this game.

1. Upgrades your gears
The most important thing you need to do with the time and coins you have is to diligently upgrade your gears. You will experience easier catch when you level up your gears. You need to develop the time and habit to do so as most of the time you will forget as you busy catching or battling Ghost.

2. Virtual Pad / Tilt Mode
When the start of the game, it was default to Tilt mode where you must face your mobile in position where the Ghost are. After I discover there is a Virtual pad, it is more easy to play when you are moving about. However Virtual pad will use up your clip more when you are fighting the boss as it sense you are shooting and not aiming most of the time. Thankfully you can switch the mode and pause the game during the selection in the catching mode.

3. Trap or Destabilized
Not all ghost are powerful. They are label as default Rank given from the moment you caught them. Starting from the lowest class of D to Class S as Legendary.  If you Trap them, you have a chance to see which Class they are. Destabilize them does not give you any chance to see the Class at all.

If you destabilized 5 of the same kind, you can combine them to form a Ghost. Again the Ghost class would be random as well. So it does not really pay off to destabilize 5 ghost to combine to 1 Ghost for that.

So why Destabilized them? The only reason is to save time and trap.

It was said that when the shard can combine to the same kind of Ghost as well but I have not seen that option yet. Maybe because my ghosts rank are still reached it the max.

4. Level Up and Rank Up
Increasing level of ghost can be done by sending them to win battles or pump in PKE crystal and level them up. The Growth will come to halt when you hit a cap and you have to then increase your Rank up.

One real obstacle are the lack of  Slime Shard (which you have to destabilized / Delete a high rank ghost) and also the Element Shard which you get by sending your team to "Daily Haunt". Element Shard you can go garnering with a given time or day. But meeting the Rank Ghost to get the Slime Shard is a real challenge of luck.

5. Forming a Dream Team
Study your ghost skill and stats and form a team that can take down the rival team in battle. Don't rush in and waste your time and opportunity. Some element are strong against another while some could be weak. Example Fire is weak against Water. Look at your opponents and plan your team. Some Ghost have some skill too which may random your powerful ghost out of your control like Stun and healing. So that does not mean the higher your level you will have a confirm victory.

Take the time to know your Ghost and select and level up your ghosts.

Good luck and I will share more in time to come! IF you have question, comment below!

You can follow me at facebook page as I will update game experience there too!

I fixed my Nintendo Switch Joycon drifting Issue

Remember my last few post that my One year old Nintendo Switch Joycon is drifting by itself? Well I tried numerous fix without removing the hardware but it is proven useless.

Cleaning Joycon Analogue Joystick DO NOT WORK!!

Here is the faulty analogue stick which I removed during replacement.

You may notice the dust is on the cover, if dust is the cause, cleaning would work right? Apparently even if you clean the dust, you notice it is on the outside. How would that stop the joycon from drifting.

There I was without remove the hardware believing it could work (after all it is the most easy way).

The two choices I have is the following

BUY a NEW JOYCON or Get the component and fix it yourself!

Weighting the cost that a pair of Joycon cost around $100 SGD, it would be way cheaper to D.I.Y to get that analogue component to replace. After all, there are a couple of video of people showing how to remove part of controller (most just skip some steps) to get it fix.

I did google and order the OEM analogue stick and am adventurous to replace the part. After all what would be the worst case? Replace the whole joycon since it is faulty and out of warranty.

Now if you really intend to do that, you need to some research to get the right tools. Google "Joycon tool" and you can easy get what you need.

The replacement took just 30 minutes max and after the replacement, you have to do a calibration of the joycon in Nintendo Switch to get it done.

The result, no more drifting!!

On the side note, I think this is more of design and quality issue of the Joycon. With my experience of Sony PSP and PS4, never have I seen controller having such issue.

Some may say because it is a portable console but I hardly bring it out. It is more like a home console.

I foresee that this is a common issue that sooner or later Nintendo switch owner will experience that. When the time come to them, it is really do they want to get another pair of Joycon or get it fixed.

When that time come, you make the choice.

PS: This is just a sharing of my experience and in no way recommend any product or source to get the part as this is not a paid post. So you have to google and find your own way. :)

Ghostbusters World Day 1 Review

I downloaded the new Ghostbusters World on my Android device and being playing it for 1 whole day. So here is my Day 1 experience and review.

Ghostbusters world is like Pokemon Go?
When I first read about the game description and the screenshot of the game, I am given an impression this is very similar like PokemonGo but it turn out to be rather different.
Is different a good thing?

Well I guess it depend if you l Ghostbusters World is not really for a game on the Go.
Compare to PokemonGo where Pokemon appear and when you tab on the Pokemon, you will go in to catch mode almost instantly without much loading time. All you need to do is to feed berry or just aim and throw your Pokeball. Within 15 seconds or less you would have caught a Pokemon.

While there are numerous encounter of Ghost in Ghostbusters World, getting one would take up close to 1 minutes to 4 minutes of your time.
  1. There is a time limit during your catch mode.
  2. You must move your phone to aim to blast your beam to weaken the Ghost while it do the peek-a-boo with you. You will certainly give the people around you the impression that you are taking photo with your handphone when you play the game. (There is no other option I know for now how to play without moving the phone around).
  3. Some Ghost are more difficult that you have to upgrade your weapons to cut short the time to catch them to reach the timer.
  4. The Ghost will attack you and you have to be fast in avoiding it's attack. Every hit will minus your HP and when your HP is done, you are out of the catching mode.
  5. Every catch would need a trap and although you can make your trap (take time and used of free game coins) or spin on the dimension door (like Pokestop), it is very likely if you catch regularly you still would be lack of traps.
Ghost or Monsters?
In the game, there are quite a variety of Ghosts in the game. Some are from different culture which is interesting.

Here is an example of the catch mode which I am catching a Chinese Ghost (actually more to be Zombie in Chinese History) which is quite good.

While the variety of Ghosts is good, some of them are more like Monsters than classic Ghosts.

PVP and Story Mission
The reason you catch ghost is to train them to take on other ghost. That give you reason to power up your Ghost but it is not for free. Any rise in Ranking would require some items which you get by giving up some Ghosts or getting reward from.

You can also choose not to play those mode as you can go about catching

There are also Raid like PokemonGo for Ghostbusters World but I have not encounter one for my day 1 as I am hardly near one. Will give my thoughts on that when I tried that.

That's my review for now. Will update more when more interesting happen.

A few day away from Nintendo Switch Online

Nintendo Switch Online will start on 19th September 2018 and there are some mixed feeling for players regarding this value-added service.

If you purchased a game that has online playing mode, then it is very likely you need to have the subscription of this Nintendo Switch Online service.

If you subscribe to this service it would be around USD $20 a year.

To make the service worth it, Nintendo had throw in 20 classic NES titles for subscribers which they can play locally and online. There is a requirement however and that is you need to login every 7 days to keep playing on your console. That is fair to me as you subscribed Nintendo Switch Online service, it would be normal for you to access it when you are connected to internet.

Another value-added service would be Cloud Saved online that come with the subscription. That mean you can now put your saved game online. However not all game support this cloud saving and
Nintendo will delete all your cloud saves once your subscription ends.

One thing that still bug me as a gamer is that Nintendo only provide a way to backup your data on cloud and not on any physical media. You can however transfer your saved game between Nintendo switch physically. However if the hardware failed, you are likely to lost your save data.

The question remain, is it still worth getting Nintendo Switch Online service?

This would very much depend on the players. Do you play online often? If you do like more than 10 times a week, then it could be something you want to look into.

If you are not into online or multiplayer mode, then this may not appeal to you.

End of the day, even if you stop playing Nintendo Switch, your saved game should not matter much by then right?

PS: Do note that Nintendo Switch Online Subscription will not be required for Free-To-Play games such as Fortnite. For Minecraft users, you need Nintendo Switch online to play online.
