Pokémon Go: Week 12 + Viridi [20161013|18:40]

I suspect I’m now over halfway through the lifecycle of Pokémon Go. I’m still enjoying my weekly urban Pokéwalks, but the thrill of catching enough unusual-to-me Pokémon or otherwise acquiring enough candy to evolve them is beginning to pall. I’ve just about come to terms with the fact that leveling up now takes weeks. I’d like to maintain my interest long enough to get to Level 30 or to the point where I can evolve the remaining 30 or so evolvable Pokémons in my repertoire, whichever comes first, but both possibilities seem rather distant right now.

That said, I have enough candy to evolve my Omanyte and my Seel, and I hope with enough walking I should be able to evolve my Koffing and my Jigglypuff. I hatched another Vulpix from a 5 km egg so that’s nearly walkable as well. The Spreadsheet of Evolve decrees that I should hold off on evolutions until my next Lucky Egg. I’m over halfway through Level 24, so I’m gritting my teeth and grinding through to the Level 25 rewards.

I currently have three - three! - 10 km eggs to hatch. I was so excited about this I spent some precious Pokécoins on an incubator. The first one is nearly ready.

I discovered that Kensington Gardens now seems to be a Diglett nest. I caught four on my last walk through it, having never seen one there previously.

On the other end of the necessary-user-input spectrum, Viridi continues to be a quiet source of daily pleasure. I share here two images of my plant pot. The first was taken on the day I started playing. The second is one month later, when everything bloomed. <3

You seem to have lasted a lot longer than many of my friends...

I'm generally quite tenacious. Case in point: Still using LJ! :P

Ooh, excellent. Congratulations!

I hatched three of my four (!) 10 km eggs. The first was a relatively low CP Jynx (grumble), the second a Pinsir (sigh) and the third was a Scyther, which is new to me and very powerful. HUZZAH.

The last two things I have hatched from eggs: a Pidgey and a Jynx. Both quite low level.

That's...pretty annoying. It doesn't seem like the eggs are well scaled to either distance walked or trainer level. :/
