It’s been a couple of months since I actively contributed here. This is partly because I have personally saw a significant decline in the level of PVE interest in PoGo. Sure, I understand that the recent PVP Battle League is the hot stuff right now, but it feels like Niantic is going very “Flash Hype” style that they forgot about their bread-and-butter roots of collection, Raid and “exploration”.
Take for example, 5-star raid bosses are half recycled content with long stagnant boss pool. Like seriously? Latias/Latios, Heatran, Lugia/Ho=oh re-runs, and Regigigas in EX-raid for so long I don’t bother to keep track anymore. Not to mention the Unovan Legendary are total lack-luster disappointments too.
With the combination of boring “spawn” events, the news scare of the Wuhan virus and the over emphasis of PVP promotion really hit the morale of my local community hard for the start of 2020. I mean, for the first time since the inception of PoGo, there wasn’t a full lobby for Ex-raid at my local Ex-gym!
How are the state of PVE scene around your local community? Are you seeing similar decline as I do, or there isn’t much noticeable change, or in fact, it is complete opposite of “decline”? If your community is still going strong in terms of raiding, collecting/“Dex-racing”, what are some things you can suggest for my community to improve their outlook of the game?
