Beedrill is the best mega to farm the platinum medal with. Costs 5 energy at max level and you can get 5 energy from spinning gyms.
The stagger gym battles not only defeats the gym faster, but also shortens the time window for the defending player to put a golden razzberry to heal them. Another tip, if you’re soloing the gym battle, if you don’t knockout the pokemon, just back out and battle again, it’s way faster and gives less time for the razzberry to be put in.
Interesting tip I learned regarding the functional hundo thing. A 0/0/15 ditto is a functional hundo. It takes all stats besides the hp of the pokemon it copies.
A few tips I use:
1) If you don’t have a long straight area to walk for your daily incense, you can use a shorter straight area. Start walking like normal and then when the Pokémon spawns immediately turn around and start walking in the opposite direction. This is because the game determines if a new Pokémon should spawn by measuring a straight line from where the last Pokémon spawned to your current location, so if you change direction right as a Pokémon spawns you don’t actually lose out on distance. Still better to try limiting the direction changes and you might turn a little late and lose out on some spawns but I’ve consistently gotten around 27 spawns with this method.
2) Don’t collect special research rewards or rewards from referral quests until you need them. If you collect then they full up your bag and take space while you don’t need them, but if you leave them until you need to use them, they effectively give you bonus bag space. Especially useful for the extra referral bonus that gives you 50 rare candy. Don’t do this for timed research as it will time out and you’ll lose the rewards.
3) similar to point to if you have an XP or stardust reward you don’t need to claim it right away, you can wait until you are going to pop an egg or starpiece for some other event and then just claim it there too. If you know you’re going to use a star piece later, don’t open gifts until you use it, as gifts give a decent amount of stardust and you can open them to use up any extra time on your starpiece.

For a pokemon that moves to the side (ie beldum) give it a banana berry and run and rencounter to have the berry applied with the mon in the center of the screen, making for much easier excellent throws.
The best theory i’ve heard on the bonus stardust pokemon is that they are pokes that usually (always?) are pokemon that carry items worth a lot of money in the MSG. Trubbish for example can be holding a nugget, starmie can be holding a star piece, and the foongus sometimes carry… something from the forest that is valuable, i forget.
Meowth won’t be holding a valuable item iirc, but meowth and persian learn Payday which farms you cash, I think its a nod to that.
Also, I recommend that anytime a new Pokémon is spawning in the wild, use pineapp berries on them and hold onto them until double transfer candy. Some Pokémon debut and then disappear once the event is over and you’re not able to get any more candies unless you want to buddy it or use rare candies on them. I’m looking at you, Bergmite.
Extra stardust pokemon are almost always pokemon that get caught with valuable hold items in the main games. Like paras and mushrooms. Meowth is because of its unique move payday
Saving rocket radars or super rocket radars for when their Pokémon is weather boosted can make getting 15 attack for raid Pokémon easier, as it’s now minimum 4 IV rather than 0
Another tip for gym battles: if you encounter a fully stocked, fully healed, gym, defeat one Pokémon, back out, defeat two Pokémon, back out, then go in and defeat three, back out, defeat three again, back out, and repeat. This will decrease the chances of a player getting alerted that the gym is under attack and coming in and fully healing the gym. I’ve battled gyms where a Blissey or Chancey would be in the front, battle the entire gym so that I only need to defeat each Pokémon once more, and then someone came in, healed all the Pokémon, and totally negated everything I had done, wasting a lot of my time.
Something I always recommend is always use mega buddies when walking since building up mega energy is never a bad thing. Level up legendaries at home unless you need the 20km candy.

haha this is me, especially when PVP goes into that mode where I need to hit the charge move button 42 times before my charge move initiates.
If you skip doing a raid one day and still have the free pass, its stacks for the next day. Great for raid days/hours for f2p players who dont buy raid passes
I am a level 50 PoGo player but suddenly I felt like a noob 🤔
Luckily google helped my out there 😅
Save all the psychic types you caught from the Psychic Spectacular
You can leave out the age0 too but I have it to spot newly caught ones.
This will add a buffer (Pokemon with 0-15-15 to 5-11-11)
About the Mewtwo example, I think its incorect. You do get bonus candy when u use any mega for raid preferably good counter like mega gengar. It’s good because you dont need to choose between helping team and getting more candy.
Might have to double check but that’s how it works if i recall correctly
+ my biggest tip: autoclicker for feeding berry´s !! Really a gamechanger. You can thank my later
I have/work on multiple megas of each pokemon incase I haven’t reached the cooldown on one and need it.
I don’t know if this has been posted but log in every day if you have multiple Pokémon in gyms. If they all got knocked out on different days you’ll still only get 50 coins unless you log in each day one returns.
I understand that this game is complex and everything else, but there are tons of easy quality of life improvements that should have taken place years ago and it all the money nia are getting from remote passes and event tickets they just don’t have any excuse for being so slow and so bad. Honestly, thinking about this it is sometimes hard to really fully enjoy the game because while you are playing, you are wasting a ton of time at useless niantic sh*t (e.g. sending and accepting gifts 1 by one and watching animation, trying to cancel them as much as possible simce the hard xp grind requires it). Basically if you are a hardcode player, it is hard to have fun 🙂
So the NewMons search is just !favorite&!transfer and it pulls up anything that I’ve caught that hasn’t been sorted. Organize by number to make it easy on myself and scan through all IVs so I don’t miss anything good. Favorite the ones I want to keep as I go to be further sorted later (favorites section sorted by recent so I can get all of those properly tagged).
Then with what’s left I can simply easily pick out the ones for bonus candy (number sorting makes this a lot smoother) and tag them for transfer and then just select all to transfer what’s left.
It sounds complicated maybe but it’s really not and this way I can guarantee I don’t lose any like 96, 98 or PVP mons. I do it every hour or so when I’m playing and I find it to be very efficient.
!friendlevel4&interactable -this quickly shows friends that you haven’t interacted with that you can so you build up towards the next level with them faster.
!lucky&interactable -a best friend (if you use these two tags in this order) that you can try and get lucky friends with.
For friend gifting effectively, this search term has been a game changer for me. Brings up only those people I can interact with that I am not already best friends with. Makes sifting through the list a thing of the past. Can just open and send gifts without any hassle at all.
