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.

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.

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!

Uber and I went down town to go and see the Gladiator exhibit at the Houston Natural Science and History Museum. Which also means we get to do some Pokemon hunting in a different area then normal.  Luckily there are a lot of stop to spin at and around the Museum. We got to the Museum around 10:30 or 11 am, and bought our tickets for the Gladiator exhibit and for the Butterfly exhibit.  We normally go and see the butterflies every time that we go to the Museum.  Our first stop was the Gladiator exhibit.  Which was really cool.  There was different stones from the Colosseum, each was marked from where it was taken. Also stated if it was part of the original build or one of the many repairs that had to be done on the original structure, due to fire or earthquake.

Next was lunch since it was 12:30 pm we decided to go and see if we could find a food truck to eat from since there are not many restaurant options. While walking to find some food the Pokemon catching started.

These three were caught on the way to lunch Sunkern was caught outside one of the parking garages in the Museum district. The two Squirtles were caught in McGovern Centennial Gardens, which connect to Hermann Park.  It was at the entrance to the Gardens we found some food tucks. I got lunch from Tu-Go Kitchen while Uber got lunch from one of our favorites Nom Mi Street.

Stantler

Stantler as you can see was attracted to our food and was caught as a result.

After lunch we took a little time to take over the gym right there and then caught a couple more Pokemon before we went headed back to the Museum in order to go to the Butterfly exhibit.

Because I have a Plus, I am able to catch Pokemon while I am walking with out opening my app I did catch several other Pokemon, but there were mostly the same as normal.  Though we did see two different Unknown in one of the gyms between where we were and the Museum.

Teddiursa and three of his friends showed up when we were getting out our tickets to get in the butterfly exhibit.  So both Uber and I took the time to catch them.  Allowing Uber to evolve him into an Ursaring, and got me closer to my second one.

In the butterfly exhibit we saw these cool looking ones resting on some plants.  There are so many different butterflies in there.

If you want to get a good look at some of the different Butterflies that they have in there you should checkout #CBCStudy on instagram.  We both can spend hours in there it is so much fun to have all the different kinds of Butterflies flying around you and sometimes landing on you.

After that we went back out to Hermann Park and went to the Japanese Garden.  I love the Japanese Garden, I could spend hours there.  Some day I will get to sit out there and knit for a few hours. Here are some images of the park and the Pokemon I caught.

Then it was time to call it a day, Uber was able to catch a new Pokemon while it ran away from me on the way back to where we parked so I caught a Psyduck.

My only good hatch of the day was Mantine, a new Pokemon for me.
