I went to Machop CD the other day, I don’t even get enough XL to max one Machop and have to convert 50% of my Machop candies.
So far the only Pokemon I can earn my way through is Snover, Drilbur and Weedle.
Can’t even max a starter after 2 bloody months and multiple events featuring them.
And let’s NOT talk about legendaries.
I think XL Rare Candies should drop in raids for level 48 or above players, buddies should get you XL candy and 20km and 5km buddies should always drop XL when caught, but I fear I am asking too much.
It seems like this game has descended into an alien reality within 1 year and not even Genshin Impact would bleed its players dry like this.
