Happy Thursday Novas! Recently, I have downloaded Pokemon Go again to play with some friends and I find myself sucked back into the black hole that once took over my free time when the mobile game first released. Upon re-downloading the game, I have noticed updates and now I’m in Pokemon Fever! Power up Players for my weekly update post on the Pokemon game!
Where I left off: I was level 7 when I re-downloaded Pokemon Go and I’m not sure how many Pokemon I had in my possession. I have been playing for about a week and I have 192 Pokemon.
After a week of playing I have added a variety of Pokemon to my collection. 57 New types of Pokemon have been caught.
Hatched- I hatched 3 eggs who turned out to be Meowth, Magmar and Bellsprout
Best Catch– Growlithe is my best catch of the week. I loveeee Growlithe and I was able to catch 2. Hopefully I can evolve one to Arcanine next week.
Strongest CP- My strongest CP catch was a Rhydon that I caught just before my Wednesday Night softball game. I caught Rhydon in the park where we play by the Activities Center (my brother Kenny and I placed lures on 2 side by side Pokestops and both pop incense to increase the number and frequency of wild Pokemon).
Since I didn’t really pay attention when I was playing Pokemon Go, I wasn’t aware of a few simple rules. I love that different locations and different conditions can affect the type of Pokemon you receive. For example, I live in a heavily populated area so I can catch Pokemon in my room and have 4 or 5 options. The weather, time of day and location will provide you with a variety of Pokemon options. CP is important but catching multiple Pokemon of the same type will give you candies needed to power up or evolve.
How to Battle Gyms– I fought in my first Gym Battle! This week I learned that you can team with other members of your color (Team Red for me) and attack a gym. If you win, everyone on your team can place 1 Pokemon to defend the gym.
Different Berries- The Nan Berry calms down aggressive Pokemon (Chikorita lol) and the Razz Berry makes the Pokemon easier to catch.
Defeated Gyms-3 out of 4 attempted Gyms
Badges – 4 Badges Received
Pokemon Defending # & Type –3 Pokemon Defending the Conquered Gyms, 2 Roselia and 1 Eggsecute.
My friend and I have made a decision to go visit different Pokemon Spots like Parks and entertainment areas to evaluate what type of pokemon can be caught. We visited 2 spots this week and were able to rack up on the Pokemon and Poke Stops in the area.
Poke Spots Visited – 3 in total. Barnett Park, Millenia Mall and Artegon Mall.
Best Poke Spot & Why – The best spot this week was Artegon Mall because there are 6 Poke Stops, 1 Gym and 1 Raid within a 5 minute walk. I was able to fill my backpack on the Poke Stops and catch a few Pokemon in the interim.
Unusual Sightings – at the end of our adventure, there was a woman walking with her baby in jogger stroller and playing Pokemon Go! At first we were joking seeing her on her phone and walking, saying that it would be funny if she was playing Pokemon Go. Then she stopped and started rapidly swiping her screen, #Belluminati Confirmed! As we laughed, we couldn’t help but pull out our phones to see what she was trying to catch haha.
Current Eggs & Progress: 8 Eggs. Incubating 3 -10 Km and 1 -5 Km.
Goals for Next Week: My goals for next week is to find a Dratini and evolve my Chikorita into a Bayleef.
That’s all for this week’s post! Are you still playing Pokemon Go? What are some of the best Poke Spots that you have found? Have there been any unusual sightings on your Pokemon Journey? Which Pokemon are your favorite? Who are you looking to catch? Let’s Talk Pokemon Go!
