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?

 

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!

 

 

 

 

20 March 2017

Honestly today’s post will be rather short.  Yesterday I really did not have the opportunity to catch many Pokemon. I would still write more but am really tired and want to go to bed.  So here is a quick summery for you.

To start the day I opened the Pokemon Go app while preparing for yesterday’s post when I Rhyhorn shows up.  I do not have many Rhyhorns I think this may be the first one I caught the other’s have all come from eggs.

Rhyhorn

Other than using my Go Plus to spin for me on the one Pokestop on my way to work I had no other catches until my work lunch hour was almost up.  I had both a Spinarak and a Sunkern show up on my way back into my office building.

When leaving work I opened up Pokemon Go so that I could connect the plus to it when Teddiursa showed up. So I quickly caught him on my way out of the office building.

Teddiursa

For some reason I hit more spins on my way home then I do on my way to work, I get about 3 to 4 on the way home.  Part of the reason for this is road work forces me to take one way to work and a different way home.  Which is annoying but not a big deal.

When I got home I saw another Octillery which allowed Uber to catch his first one and me my second.  Last night I had a Eevee, Sentret, a Weedle all decided to show up so that I could catch them in the house.  It was very convent of them.

So that is a quick run down of my day. I am going to call it a night and will be back tomorrow for my next update.

 

19 March 2017

Yesterday I slept in a little bit but was up and about by 8:30 am, since Uber was on shift I decide to go for a early walk.  This is something that I often do when Uber is working.  As I got ready for my walk and opened my Pokemon Go app to connect with my plus what should appear in my living room but a hoothoot.

hoothoot

He got to be my first catch of the day (please disregard the mess not only do I need to do some major house work, but we are moving stuff around and going through stuff to donate and or sell. The joys of wanting to down size the junk in our lives).

It was a very foggy morning out yesterday, which I really enjoy.  I always feel so alone when I am in the fog, not something that I get to enjoy much in a city.

Unfortunately the fog burned off way to fast for my liking but I had some fun while it lasted. There is some real beauty that can be found on a foggy morning, though I feared getting hit by a car going to fast in the neighborhood. Luck for me I did not see any cars around when I had to cross any streets.

The five above are my first catches while walking. Starting with Spinarak jumping down from a tree at me. Then I stumbled upon a Sentret between trees, no urban or any walk is not complete with out several Rattatas.  As you can see by the time I caught the second Rattata (bottom left picture) the fog is quickly burning off.  Finally the last Pokemon I stumbled across before getting to the Pokestop nearest my house is Remoraid.  My only thought is that the fog was so thick that he got confused.

For the first half of my walk I saw no other people which made me very happy. Sometimes it is nice to be the only person around and is a great way to start the day with your own thoughts.  I was listening to music using pandora, I was listening to my Volbeat startion.  If you have never heard of them I highly recommend them.

Walking back from the Pokestop and heading towards my HOA Pool I caught a Sudowoodo, they are not very common to have show up around here. While not rare it is not something you normally find on your morning walk and a Natu. Natu’s are pretty common around here, I have been catching them because I want to evolve a second one up and see how strong I can make it. I don’t know that it is worth it but I am going to find out.

Though my real prize of the walk was this crobat.  He is not very strong and I will probably want to evolve one at a later date but I don’t care.  He is another entry in to my pokedex.  Something that I love to get is new entries, something that I don’t get that many of.

Crobat

I did not really catch anything else during my walk but was able to get enough candy to evolve Voltorbe into Electrode.

Eveolved Electrode

Also I hatched another Magnemite, which means I only need 9 candies not to evolve him so he has become my new buddy. Both of these things happened near the end of my walk. the rest of the day was spent doing College Algebra and house work. But I was able to get some other goodies before I went to be for the night.

When getting ready to weed the fence line flower bed I opened my app up and decided to catch the random Rattata that wandered into the house and instead found a Ditto, that makes 5 for me though all of there cps suck.  I contently spending candies and stardust to make my strongest one better. I did not have anything good pop while I was weeding the flower beds though I was not out there more then thirty minutes due to stepping in a hidden fire ant nest.  I don’t know why Texas has so many fire ants.  So with both feet covered in red spots from the ants I went in and showered.  My goal was to clean my feet off as quickly as possible and hope that I would not have to many areas that would puss up or get itchy. (Just in case you are wondering my feet have not pussy spots from the  ants or any major itchy spots. After work I will go back out and work on the fence line weeding starting from the other direction.  So Uber can find the nest and poison it along with the other two we already marked.)

My final catch worth noting is the Octillery that I found outside my house after my shower.  I quickly through on a hoodie and shorts and went out and caught him.

Yes my neighbors probably think I am nuts.  So that is the majority of my adventures yesterday. I went for a hour and half walk, did very little house work and did some College Algebra.  Now off to start today’s adventure.

 

18 March 2017

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.
