New World

SkittyAuthor Note: I am changing this blog from a daily catch diary to a creative writing zone for me about what our world would be like if Pokemon were to come out of the virtual world. I do hope that you enjoy the stories.

I found a little Skitty one day shortly after the third generation of Pokémon had started showing up in our world. It looked like it had been in a fight and had not come out the winner. Using some berries, I was able to get close to Skitty. I took him home with me and nursed him back to health. Skitty indicated that he wanted to stay with me, so I used a pokeball and officially caught him.

It is hard to believe that at one time that this little guy was just an idea out of a game. When it first started two years ago I don’t think that anyone thought that they would be able to come out of the virtual world. In the books, anime and manga’s it is always the person being transported to the virtual world, not the virtual world coming into the real world.  We don’t know what will happen as later generations come out of the virtual world into our own, but some people do worry about it.

Some good has come from all of this. It is now not uncommon to see people walking around with their Pokémon. Skitty currently goes everywhere with me. I am working on training him so that he can evolve in to a Delcatty. A lot of people that deal with anxiety and depression are finding it easier to manage the depression or anxiety. It is not a cure but getting out of the house and having a companion does help them manage their symptoms. Unfortunately, some people were not able to handle this change in our world and have become shut ins. This has become a new world, one that is so full of possibilities. One that I want to explore it’s future and keep it’s past alive. This is my story, the story of everyday life and the excitement that we can find in it.

This weekend I went to Anime Matsuri, well I went on Saturday.  I wish that I could say that I caught a lot of pokemon, but I did not.  I had app issues.  For a good part of the day I could not spin pokestops or catch any pokemon.  I don’t know what was going on but I would throw one ball and they would run away it did not matter if it was a cp 10 or 1000 they all ran. Then I would try to spin and nothing would happen.  I wouldn’t even get a try again later.  Shortly before we headed home it started working again.  Anime Matsuri was a lot of fun.  We saw some Ashes, Pikachus, Team Rocket members, and about 50 Team Skull members.  There was also on Misty.  I was able to find a box set of seasons 1-3 of Pokemon, and four of the movies that I have not seen before.

Today I have not gone to walk at all.  It was sprinkling during my lunch though even if it had been sunny I would not have walked today.  I have a Math exam in a few days and really need to study for it.  I have a three day weekend coming up so I am planing on doing some major walking and Pokemon hunting this weekend.  Most of this week will be spent working on school work so that I can go and play all weekend.  I am also just in the mood to read some manga and watch some anime.  I am feeling very lazy after been as active as I was all weekend.  Tomorrow night I will be going to take a walk after work, hopefully I will be able to hatch something and get some candy then.

Sorry for the boring post but I don’t have a lot to say today.

3 April 2017

Just a quick note, I am still not feeling a 100% so this post will be a little quick and will not have any photos. I am really sorry if you enjoy the pictures that I normally post for my up dates but that just takes more time to add them and at this point all I want to do is go to bed. So without further ado I give you yesterdays adventure or lack there of.

Let me start by telling you what I have evolved in the last week.  Rhyhorn was evolved into Rhydon. Sunkern into Sunflora by using a sunstone and Gloom into Bellossom also by using a sunstone.  Yesterday (Sunday) I received a second sunstone solving my issue of having to decide who to evolve Sunkern or Gloom.  Since I have evolved Rhyhorn I have started walking Diglett I had wanted to get 2 or 3 candies during my lunch and after work walks but due to not feeling right I did not walk much at work than during my evening walk I started feeling severe vertigo which really slowed me down.  I did not think that I could make it home for a little bit, I thought that I was going to faint and was very happy that Uber was walking with me.  I was able to catch a few Pokemon but not anything really note worthy.

I am sorry that this is such a short and uneventful update but I am hoping in the next few days to have a better updates for you again. I am taking the next couple days off of walking but will start walking again near the end of the week to make sure that I kick this cold  or whatever it is.

Sorry for going missing

I am sorry for not getting on here last week but either I or Uber were sick for one part or other. I did go out and catch some pokemon and hatchingd some eggs. Mostly hatching eggs and working to evolve my Rhyhorn. Starting with today I will be starting back writing on here everyday. I am sure that I will put some stuff up from last week but it will not be it’s own post or very long. Well I am off to start my adventures for this week and will see you all later.

Sorry I don’t have a lot to share on here today. Uber was not feeling well yesterday, well really started not feeling well Saturday afternoon into the evening.  He is still not feeling well, I think that he maybe having the same issue of a lot of people that I know where their allergies are causing them to get sick due to drainage. Luckily I feel fine, but unluckily his not feeling well kept me from going out much.  On the way to the store I was able to get my 7 day spin and got a sun stone.  Now I have to decided what Pokemon I want to use it on since I have two that can use it.  Sunkern or Gloom I have enough candies that I could evolve either one of them.  This would be much easier if I had only enough candies for one of them.  So for now I am waiting until I decide who knows I may wait and see what I get next Sunday.  I have just enough room in my bag right now for my day one spin on 3/27/17.

My only catch that I got with the app yesterday was Tentacool. I honestly did not have the app up much yesterday and only made a few plus catches.  I don’t enjoy playing as much when I am mostly staying home.

Though I was able to take Rhyhorn out for a short walk and find one more candy.  We only have three more to go before I can evolve it.  Though we may walk a little more then what is needed so that I can power it up some.  I have not decided yet.  I have 5 Rhyhorn right now so I really could grind one up if I really wanted to.

New walking buddy

With Uber being sick I was able to update my walking list though.  I keep a list of Pokemon that I need to evolve.  In that list I keep how many candies I have and how many I need in order to evolve it. For example Rhyhorn: I have 47 candies and need 50 to evolve so I put that into my columns. Once I have everyone that I need to evolve in my list I look at who needs the least candies to evolve and that one becomes my new walking buddy until I evolve them.  Once a week I update my list which can change who I walk next. I plan out my next three at a time so next up for me is Diglett, Machop and Geodude.  As of right now in that order.  If something changes in the next week before I change walking buddies I will reorder or add someone to the list.  So right now I have 21 candies for Diglett and need 50.  I don’t take into account how many km I need in order to get a candy. Simply because that is more complicated then I want to get with it. I tried that with my first list and it just was really hard to keep it updated.  So do you have a method that you use to pick who you are going to walk with next?

Uber and I went into Houston, we decided to go to the zoo.  The zoo is one of my favorite places to visit. I love how the Houston Zoo has keeper talks in which they not only talk about the animals in the zoo and about the conservation efforts that the zoo helps support to help animals in the wild.  I was a little sad to see that the owl was not there anymore.  I was able to evolve three Pokemon and hatch two.

 

These three were evolved yesterday. Magneton, Azumarill, and Quagsire.  I am quite happy to have three Pokemon off of my walking list.

I was able to hatch these two though I think I hatched one more that I did not get a picture of.

With the water festival going on I had a lot of water Pokemon showing up at the zoo.

And these random non-water pokemon:

After we were done at the zoo we went to Hermann Park, which happens to be a Magnemite Nest. Where I caught several Magnemite though I only got a couple of pictures due to my ar camera not  working right and being almost out of battery so I started using my plus more.

Now that I have evolved up Magnemite I have a new walking buddy, Rhyhorn. I am hoping to have enough candies to evolve Rhyhorn up by mid week so that I can move on to my next walking buddy. My list is really helping me fill my pokedex up.

Well I am off to make some dinner and play some Sun and Moon.  See you tomorrow.

21 & 22 March 2015

I want to start off by saying that I am sorry for this two day post.  I will try to keep these down to a minimum but they may happen from time to time.  While I could have posted last night it would have caused me to put off doing something that I really needed to be doing.  I want to start today’s post by sharing some personal data about myself.  You will find out that I am a huge nerd often called a dork by my co-workers.  I love to watch anime and read manga, I have a DS that I am currently playing the newest Pokemon game on (I have the Sun version), and am wanting to start buying the older seasons of Pokemon.  I work full time 40 + hours a week, and I am enrolled in 7 hours this semester in my local community college.  So sometimes I just run out of time or do not have time to play or even think about writing on here.  I am trying to make this a habit of mine to come and write at least 2oo words every day.  There will be days when I have extra time off like in May when I am taking a long weekend that I can get out more and hopefully do some amazing post about Pokemon.  Okay enough about me, let’s get on to the meat of things.

21 March 2017

So on mornings that Uber does not go into work we normally end up going to a Starbucks before I have to go to work.  We try to get there early enough that we can have something to eat and drink our coffee drinks before I have to go to work.  We spend on average an hour there.  I always have my Pokemon Go Plus button sitting on the table so that he knows where a Pokemon shows up or it is time to re-spin.  On these mornings he is normally playing Pokemon Duel, chest, or looking at reddit while I am doing homework.  This morning there was not a lot of Pokemon showing up at the Starbucks.  I only caught this Eevee:

Eevee

I did not open my Pokemon Go app again until it was time to leave work.  I honestly just didn’t have time at lunch to go out and walk or passively play in the break room, I have  a pretty major test in one of my classes next week and I am not falling in to the same error that I did last time, thinking that it would be easier then it really was.  I opened the app and connected the Plus button on my way out of the office.  Uber and I drove up to the college so that we could use the gym on campus (we each exercise about 4 times a week).

After working out we took out the Poke-Gym that was right next to the real gym.  Where I put in my Espeon.

Gym take over

On the way back to the truck I was able to catch two more Pokemon.

Well as you can see one of them was caught in the truck, I know that I caught a couple with my Plus on the drive to get something to eat and home but I honestly did not look at my journal to see what it was because I don’t want to know what I did not catch.

On the way home Uber and I discussed the latest (at that time) announcement from Pokemon Go.  I am sure that you have seen it but if not here is a screen shot of it off of twitter.

Pokemon Go Up-Date announcement

Uber made the point that the Pokemon Go group would not need to do this if they did not make evolution items so rare.  He also points out that this does not help players like him that cannot spin every day.  He works a job where he is on shift for 2 days and then is off for 2 days.  This means that the 2 days that he is on he has no access to spins since he can not leave where he is. While Uber is the first to tell you that he would not still be playing this game if not for me since he feels like it is a broken game, he also has somethings that he wants to be able to do like evolve Pokemon that need special items.  The one thing that he is really waiting for is trading, once that happens he will have much more fun with it I think.  Personally I am excited about knowing I will get one item every 7 days.  I have only gotten 2 items since they came out.  I really want the other items and even more of the items that I have so that I can have some fun evolving certain types that I want more then one of.

22 March 2017

Honestly outside of using my Plus I did not catch anything until the evening.  This is due to that exam that I have coming up that I am trying to study for.  I also did not look at my journal because I did not want to see what I missed.  This is also how I got my spins today.  Right now I have so many 10 km eggs that I am trying to decide if I want to buy a 3 us incubator or if I just want to plan two really long walks this weekend.  I don’t want to see if I got another egg so I haven’t opened up to see what items I have gotten.  I try not to even look at my eggs when setting new eggs.

Psyduck

So I got a Psyduck on the walk back to the house from checking to see what the new lost pet poster was.  Since we go for walks most days we try to know if anyone near us is missing a dog or cat so we can be on the look out.  Even if I can’t get the animal to come to me then we can notify the owners where their pet was seen.

While I was studying Uber saw there were some Pokemon that he wanted to see if he could find so we went out and took a quick walk around the block.  All I got was 3 Woopers (sorry no AR pictures for them it is way to dark around here to see any thing in the pictures other then the Pokemon. It really just looks like they are standing in front of a black sheet).

With the water event going on right now you will be seeing a ton of water pokemon from me.  I do live in an area that we normally have a lot of water pokemon anyways so I normally see a lot of different water types.  I am hoping to get my first Lapras and to evolve up some Gen 2 water types before this event ends.

Hopefully tonight when I go for my walk I will get some go Pokemon but I need to go and get ready for work now and to try to do some more studying before  I leave the house for work.  Happy catching!
