Pokémon Go: Week 10 [20160927|14:04]

For various reasons, I'm planning to reward myself with a very, very long Pokéwalk when I'm in London this week. Are you still playing? Has anyone just started? All types and levels of squee are welcome in the comments.

  • I HATCHED A LICKITUNG! From a 5k egg I picked up in the USA, I think.
  • I also hatched another Vulpix. I’m still not in reasonable candy number/walking distance to a Ninetails, especially with several other candidates that are 5 candies or less from their first evolution.
  • I popped a Lucky Egg and deployed the Spreadsheet of Evolve. I now have: Kadabra, Abrok, Machoke, Primeape, Gloom, Parasect, Graveler and Rapidash.
  • I didn’t even get to the 16 Pidgey evolutions before the Egg ran out, but did them afterward and reached Level 24.
  • I maxed out the Kanto medal with the latest set of evolutions. 102 registered in the Pokédex.
  • Very close to maxing out the Collector (2000 Pokémon caught!), Scientist and Backpacker medals.
  • I now have two Gyarados. So many Magikarp. But it’s worth it because the end result is another beautiful blue dragon. My new dragon is CP1800+ and over 400 kg. Ginormous.
  • Most of the way to silver medals in the following, but assume achieving gold is probably not a sustainable goal: Fisherman, Ruin Maniac, Hiker and Hex Maniac.
  • That said, every time my interest begins to wane, I have a trip to London and I get hooked all over again.
  • I walked my Ponyta for 27 km until I earned a fire unicorn. O gorgeous Rapidash. Such a shame that to stroke your mane and tail is to set one’s hand alight. <333
  • Currently walking my Omanyte. Three candies to Oma-something-or-other!
  • This past weekend I was walking with Keiki in a Poké-rich location. I came across a gym headed by a CP400-ish Pidgeotto and thought, aha, I can take this before Keiki gets bored in his pushchair, so I’ll just have a quick play. No sooner had I installed my Rainer (Vaporeon) atop the gym than a door nearby opened and a boy rushed out. “Was that you?” he demanded. “Er, yes,” I replied, taken aback. “That was my best Pokémon,” he replied, crestfallen. “Oh, um, sorry,” I said. There was a pause. “Tell you what, I’ll drop a lure on that Pokéstop and maybe you can catch something even better.” I did, and he pootled happily back inside, thereby hopefully mitigating the Adult Woman Accidentally Ruins Child’s Day scenario. WHOOPS

(PS I made a thread on [personal profile] littlebutfierce’s A Wild Love Meme Appears. I don’t normally do these things but I could use it right now so if you feel like saying a Nice Thing or two I’d appreciate it, thank you.)

I hatched my first Lapras yesterday! It's half again the CP of my next most powerful Pokemon.

I caught my first Kadabra last week. I love its spoon!

I've been playing in tiny increments, doing the school run back and forth, but only once or twice a week, when I go into London, have I been making any real progress lately.

Ooh, congratulations on the Lapras! I still haven't got one. I live in hope.

The Kadabra's spoon is excellent. I'd seen its shadow before and thought, I want the spoon-wielding Pokémon. I was delighted when it turned out to be the evolved Abra.

It's definitely a game optimised for urban environments. Not so great for us countryside residents!

I finally hatched a Snorlax. I'm level 25 and it's my first one. Much excite!! I am really lacking in the uber Pokemon. I'm still 300 candies away from a Gyrados. I do have a Dragonite, but its CP is under 300. I just caught in the wild a zillion levels ago. I only have enough candy to power it up once or twice.

Where I have mainly been playing is downtown Denver, which is lousy with rock/ground, fire, and electric types, which is how I'm such a high level with so few awesome Pokemon. I've caught 170 Ponyta and evolved 10 or more Rapidashes. I wish they would implement trading. Buddy, I can hook you up with Rhyhorns, Geodudes, Ponytas, and Magnemites like you wouldn't believe, but just want some water types and Evees!

Oh, congratulations on the Snorlax, and lucky you! I've only ever seen a shadow of a Snorlax - and, of course, plenty of them rotating sleepily atop gyms. Have you walked your Dragonite at all?

I would be thrilled to trade you some Goldeens, Magikarp (I'm well on the way to a third Gyarados which is just a bit ridiculous), Psyducks and Slowpokes!
