Pokémon Go: Week 25 + Abyssrium

I haven’t posted about PokéGo in a while, which probably reflects my waning interest. I have, however, reached Level 28, thanks in part to the quadruple points bonus from the Lucky Egg evolves during the Thanksgiving event. I didn’t benefit much from the Winter Holiday event due to being entirely occupied by family in rural Norfolk. It was pretty irritating not to see a single Pokémon within a kilometre of the house. On a couple of brief visits to town, I got a few free incubators. I also caught a large quantity of Santachus in London during December, which were sufficient for me to evolve a Raiclaus. \o/

New to my Pokédex since my last update on Week 18 (!) were: Blastoise, Dodrio, Exeggcutor, Arcanine, Magneton, Raichu (and Raiclaus), Nidoqueen,Ivysaur, Charmeleon, Vileplume (which is a lot cuter than it sounds), Victreebel (which isn’t), Dragonite and Weezing.

I’ve caught a few Dittos, and one was even in Worcestershire and not London. I’m 30 candies from my fourth Gyarados. I am frustrated that I’ve been playing for nearly half a year now and not managed to catch, hatch or even see in the wild a Snorlax, a Lapras or an Aerodactyl.

OTOH, I hatched a Pikachu from a 2km egg recently, which was pretty satisfying! I’ve walked my Sandshrew to sufficient candies to evolve it, and my Nidorino is ready to go at my next Lucky Egg too. I have sufficient Voltorb, Kabuto and Vulpix candies to make walking them to evolution a reasonable undertaking. After that, though, I won’t have many left to evolve, and for those, I have so few candies out of the 100 required that walking them is pointless until there’s another event where the distance required is quartered. I suspect this game is coming to the end of its natural cycle for me.

Abyssrium has been making up for the petering out of PokéGo with its Winter Holiday event. I collected all the Christmas fish in their Santa outfits and enjoyed adorning my Coralite with Rudolph antlers. I also still faithfully feed my Neko Atsume kitties and water my Viridi plants every day. At some point I’ll have to look into acquiring a new adorable phone game.

Neko Atsume - Whiteshadow
Featuring the elusive Whiteshadow in the Sugary Style garden. Looking at this, I can’t feel too sad that my first public post of 2017 is about frivolous games.

My plan is to finish off the December Days photo prompts in January. I also have a set of Throwback Thursday photos I shall be posting over the course of the next year. Let it not be said that I don’t have goals.

I've yet to catch Whiteshadow for a photo.

I don't think they stay for long, and of course, not using any of the standard toys makes their appearance even more difficult to predict!

Is that a ninja cat?

Indeed. Its toys are listed as "Espionage Activity" and "Scouting Mission".

Venice is decadent for me for Pokemon Go playing: staying on top of a Pokestop, surrounded by Pokestops nearby, and with the canyon of buildings confusing the signal so my phone accidentally thinks I'm doing lots of walking when I'm not. (Which makes up for all the walking I do there without my phone on.)

New to me this week: hatched a Togepi, and evolved a Ivysaur, a Charmeleon and a Poliwrath. I can't remember if the Dratini was new last week or this one, but very recently. Also, thanks to time in a watery place, most of my top CP creatures are Kringlers now.

Oh, very nice! I have Pokéstop envy. Congratulations on all your new evolutions and Togepi hatchling. :)

Thank you.

Also, your Gyarados comment reminds me that thanks to this last week, I am now only 40 floppy fish away from my first!
