Pokémon GO Progress!

It’s been awhile since I’ve done an update on my progress with Pokémon GO. I intended on writing an entry about it a little while back, but never got around to it. Anyway! I have still been playing casually, and I’ve got a few new critters.

First, though, I need to bitch about this guy:

I HAVE HAD NO LUCK CATCHING THIS LITTLE BASTARD. I HAVE WASTED LIKE 100 POKéBALLS CATCHING STUPID PIDGEYS AND RATTATAS. I HATE DITTO.

End rant. So first of all, I’ve earned several medals, including evolving 20 Pokémon, catching 50 Grass-type Pokémon, hatching 10 eggs, catching 50 Water-type Pokémon…

And my favorite medal, catching 3 Pikachu! Who knew catching the cute little guy several times was an accomplishment in itself.

Recently, I’ve caught a Diglett…

A Santa Hat Pikachu…

And randomly, a Ponyta!

I was at work stocking cans on a shelf when I caught it, hence the weird screenshot. I was actually not trying to catch anything that day, I was just trying to get steps in to hatch some eggs. Ponyta was a lucky bonus!

Speaking of eggs, I recently hatched an Electabuzz…

a Mankey…

And a Tentacool! I’m happy about this one, because I caught one Tentacruel (the evolution of Tentacool) many months ago, but I had yet to come across one of these guys.

As far as evolutions are concerned, I’ve evolved my Haunter into a Gengar…

my Kakuna into a Beedrill…

my Bellsprout into a Weepinbell…

and my Bulbasaur into an Ivysaur.

I had Weedle as my buddy briefly because I just needed one more piece of candy from it. Look how cute it was sitting on my shoulder!

As of right now, Meowth is my buddy. I only need one more piece of candy before I can evolve it!

One night while I was playing, I came across a really random glitch! Nidoran was hanging upside down… and when I threw the Pokéball, it curved underhand towards him! It was totally bizarre but kind of funny too.

So right now, here is my current collection of Pokémon:

I like to have one of every kind and of every stage of evolution, so I do not evolve a Pokémon until I will be able to have one of each. So if you see more than one of a Pokémon, that means I’m trying to evolve it. That’s just the way I like to do things! 🙂

Oh, and my current level is 16!

One last note: I caught one Santa Hat Pikachu and was happy, cuz it’s so darn cute! I actually came across another one, and tried in vain to catch it. It broke out of 3 Pokéballs and 2 Great Balls then ran away, leaving me empty handed and without any Pokéballs at all! Dammit! I was hoping to evolve it into a Santa hat Raichu, but that’s just my shitty luck I guess!
