Hi, gamers! You can call me Mr. DComplex. I'm a gamer, a hardcore gamer. My favorite genres are Action RPG and MMORPG. At the moment I'm using my PC as my only gaming platform, but soon I might get a new PS4 from Angel. Update - Angel did get me a PS4, oh wait, it's the PS4 PRO 1TB!!! Much love bro!


  1. Why is there no token for Giovani after defeating Sierra, Arlo, and Cliff in the month of June 2020?

  2. My son did Giovanni this morning and it is Suicune not Entei, all the above information is mostly incorrect.

  3. I encountered dugtrio as well while encountering Giovanni in a balloon raid. Persian was not as super charged either as I was able to beat Persian and dugtrio with Haryama. Leaving just suicune for last.

  4. I just fought against Giovanni and I got the following lineup: 1st Persian, 2nd Dugtrio, 3rd Suicune and ending up with a Suicune catch.
    Good luck to everyone~

  5. My fought against Giovanni today (07-10-2020) the lineup was: 1st Persian (i used Terrakion); 2nd Nidoking (i used Rhyperior) then Suicune (Exxegutor). I captured Suicune . Good luck everyone! 🙂

  6. I’m level 38 and I can not beat him. Tried so many combos. lol I may take a break or the phone will be smashed!!
