This was the worst Community Day I have had since July 2020's Gastly Community Day which was somewhat similar to this.
I was stuck in a car from exactly 10 AM until 2 PM when we arrived home. The event of course only ran from 11 AM-2 PM so I had to play using Incense and Deinos kept running away because of the speedlock Niantic put on driving and playing. I also lost three of the five shinies I saw. I was able to save one because the game didn't speedlock it, and another came from a photobomb which apparently are never speedlocked. So I got two shinies. I also got a Shiny Deino last year during GO Fest, so I have three total now and can have a living Shiny dex of the Deino family.
I was able to finish the Special Research pretty easily. Unfortunately the Hydreigon was a 10-10-13. I also evolved four other Hydreigons.
The reason I could evolve so many is I had over 300 candies already from other events. I really only caught about 30 out of the 100 I saw
While the 3 hour period itself, was pretty bad, I had some luck with the eggs.
I had three notable hatches:
A 98% Rowlet
And my first Salandit! Male of course, but at least I got the dex entry.
I tried my hand at a Zweilous raid to see how hard they are, and it wasn't worth it. Didn't even make it to the halfway point.
And tonight, I got my first Psystrike Mewtwo of the rotation and reached Ace Rank!
I kinda wish this day was Growlithe day or something that I don't care as much about. But it could have been worse. Gastly day, the day I previously mentioned, I encountered 4 shinies and two ran away as I was in a car traveling back from my condo most of the time.
Maybe I will have better luck during the December recap!
P.S: To put salt on the wound, my cousins and grandparents who were staying with us both arrived back home before us. That means of all the people who wanted to get home asap, I ended up getting stuck waiting the longest and arriving back exactly at 2:00 -_-
