Who’s got plans for event-based Pokéwalks? *raises hand*

  • Fiiiiiiinally reached Level 26. Currently trying not to think about how long that took.
  • Am enjoying the new bonuses for first catch of the day/first Pokéstop of the day, and for the 7-day streaks of these. On days when I can only play for a few minutes, it’s so helpful for boosting my XP tally in any sort of meaningful way.
  • I seem to be encountering a lot of Mr Mimes at the moment. This is not so pleasant. OTOH, I’ve run into 10 or so Magnemites in the past three weeks, which has made me quite happy.
  • The Spreadsheet of Evolve says I can add seven more things to my Pokédex at my next Lucky Egg of Evolve. Soon I will buy said Lucky Egg of Evolve, because I have seventy-odd evolutions available.
  • I played with Humuhumu when we were on the U of Birmingham campus last weekend. We had a great time and she was very proud of catching 20 (!) Pokémon, three of them with Excellent throws. I think I’ve had maybe two successful Excellent throws in all my weeks of playing? Kids!
  • The event that started today couldn’t have been better timed, as I’m in London through Friday. I’m happy with double points and stardust. I would be even more excited for a repeat of doubled candy bonuses. Maybe they’re saving that for the December festival holiday event?

I love the bonuses!

I used a lucky egg last night, blithely thinking I could get the final candy I needed to evolve a Charmander during the session. I had 0.1 km left to go. How hard could it be, even if mostly near and around the house, and a bit of a walk down the block?

Aggravatingly, that final candy didn't update until after the half-hour had elapsed, despite the distance I'd gone. But at least I had several new Pokemon from the session, and earned my 100 Pokemon Seen badge. (Wartortle! Wigglytuff! Flareon! Machoke.) Plus I caught my first Vulpix this week.

In unrelated news, have you seen this dress? http://www.svahausa.com/product/physics-equations-flared-dress/

Bonuses are great.

AUGH so sorry about the evasive Charmander candy.

I had not seen that dress, thank you. I think that would be a good dress to add to my wardrobe, yes, yes.
