    Default Rattata everywhere....

    I see Rattata everywhere. Zillions of them. I usually capture them and send on to the professor. I'm at level 16, have won a few gym battles and am still really into the game. I don't know what to do when I see as many as 5 Rattata appear on my screen at a new location and nothing else (except in the Nearby bar). It feels like a real waste of time to capture all of them when I want to find critters that I don't have yet.

    Should I continue to capture and send on to the Professor, or can I ignore them?

    (I have 290 Rattata Candy with Raticate fully powered up)

    Edit:
    I have walked 3 1/2 miles this morning and continued to capture everything I found. As a result I have increased from level 15 to 16. So I guess capturing everything is helpful.

    Capture them for the XP (it all adds up) and release them.

    Only 100, here's the math, you get three candy by catching a Pokmon and an additional 1 for transferring. So a capture and transfer equals 4 candy. So really 101 Magikarp to evolve, the one to evolve plus 100 more, then more to get candy to power up your Gyarados.

    I like magikarp bc he's just a flopping fish. I'll never catch enough to evolve him, but I've evolved more rattatas than I care to talk about. Oh and Pidgeys, too.
