Pokemon GO – Update 2

With the Heat Wave and Air Advisory still in place, we’re mostly aiming for early morning and night explorations as it’s just too hot to really go during the afternoon.

On Tuesday, while going out for lunch, we decided to try and get some Pokemon though. Unfortunately, we only found a Weedle for new Pokemon… We did pass the Pokestop again though and I got 3 more Pokeballs and another egg. Unfortunately, shortly after we ate the login servers went down and have been down since :/ While Google services seem to be back up, those using the Pokemon Trainer Club like me are just endlessly waiting…

After about 40 hours of downtime, the servers for the Pokemon Trainer Club finally came back. Upon logging back in, I was greeted by a Squirtle! And thus, we decided to try and catch lots of Pokemon today. We actually had to run out grocery shopping and while we missed several PokeStops & Pokemon due to the car moving so fast, we still got a lot as well, including:

  • Spearow
  • Zubat
  • Pidgeotto
  • Staryu
  • Nidoran (Female)
  • Eevee
  • Pidgey
  • Rattata
  • Kakuna
  • Venonat
  • Raticate
  • Jigglypuff
  • Oddish
  • Paras
  • Meowth
  • Gastly

Not to mention extras of many Pokemon. It was nice to be surrounded by so many Pokemon too:
My husband did get a Bellsprout and Mankey though which sadly never popped up for me (and way more Eevee ;~;)… He even evolved one of his Eevee into a Jolteon :(

And while we did miss some Pokestops, we also stopped by several and I got a total of 10 Pokeballs, 1 Revive, and 1 Egg.

I’m level 6 now… but still not sure what team I will join just yet. After talking about it more (and hitting level 7), we finally went with the Blue Team–Team Mystic…specifically because Articuno:
I just hope it doesn’t force color selection for clothes and that there will be more clothing in general. I really want a new outfit (in pink). After that, we tried out an incense:
Unfortunately, it went pretty bad :/ I only had 6 Pokemon show up (one of which got away) and of those 6, only 2 were new (A Krabby and a Dodrio)–I had so many Doduo though, so I would have gotten a Dodrio myself soon enough. I did catch a Magikarp shortly after it ended however.

I also hatched my first egg! And it gave me a Bellsprout :D
So now I’m only missing two Pokemon that my husband has… I still have two eggs to hatch. And I evolved my first Pokemon–a Pidgey up to a Pidgeot:

Finally, I got a bunch more medals:

If things go well, I’m hoping we can go back out later to head towards the park and the nearby Pokestop, but we will have to see… One Pokestop even had a Lure for a while, but it’s already ended :( It was nice to see someone set up one close by here though…

Edit: So, we did head back out and towards the park. Besides a Pokestop, there is also a gym at the statue (which we have seen switch between all team colors multiple times). We managed to get a few new Pokemon–I ended up getting a Tangela, Kingler, and Poliwhirl. A lure was even used at one point (which is how I got my Tangela):

While there, we briefly tried the gym, but gave up pretty fast:
We can’t really figure out the mechanics of how the battles work just yet. Hopefully we get better Pokemon soon too.

Regardless, it turned from Yellow to Red not long after we left. I hope Blue gets it soon. On our way out, we actually were stopped by some Red Team members who told us to “get out” (Jokingly, I believe) and that the statue was theirs. We’re still pretty behind compared to people with Google Accounts so hopefully we can catch up and maybe try taking over a gym… mostly just because I want coins though as I’d be fine ignoring gyms altogether. I only have 15 Pokeballs left so I definitely want to build my count up…

Edit 2: Managed to get an Ekans while at home :D And hatched a Koffing from one of my eggs!

Edit 3: Tried another incense. Only got 6 again :/ But did manage to get a Scyther so got at least one Pokemon.

Edit 4: Another egg hatched!! Got another Meowth.
