Our Pokemon Go Journey

12 Sept 2016

We were never virtual gamers. Today we celebrated our levelling up to level 39 playing Pokemon Go. Another 5 million XPs to grind before ascending to the final level - we can finally go easy.

Our journey starts slow on 6 Aug 2016. The memorable photo on top marks our beginning, when we were still amateur and catching mons with low combat power. And when Ric had refused to walk the eggs for me. =)

(This post is dedicated to Ric, who walks the miles for us, evolving decisively, catching accurately, watching the roads for me and evolving the mons bravely when I dare not look on.)

7 Oct 2016

- Bagged the rare Snorlax and Lickitung minutes apart, while travelling along Bukit Merah View!
- Near missing our first Chansey at Marsiling MRT station! On a morning ride to work.
- Our first Lapras jumping on us along Punggol Rd, towards the waterfront!

22 Nov 2016, Woodlands Ring Rd (Snorlax)      22 Dec 2016, Bukit Batok Central (Muk)     09 Jan 2017, Woodlands Ave 4 (Rhydon)

- It was wlways exhilarating meeting the larger mons. Although many can be evolved from baby mons, meeting and fighting the full grown is fun.
- I was actually afraid of the ugly Muk.

21 Nov 2016                                                                        24 Nov 2016

- Farming Charmander candies on Mount Faber.
- Completed our GEN 1 pokedex on 20 Nov 2016 when Aerodactyl was caught at Bukit Panjang. Another one at Hort Park days later.

9 Dec 2016                                                                         13 Dec 2016

- Dashing out every night when Machop started a small nest in the neighborhood garden. And grow to love this cute little guy with a tail. He and Dratini remains our favorite till today.
- When an error occurred during play, we get fun pictures. See a fist clenched Machop on my foot?

6 Jan 2016                                                                           27 Jan 2016

- During the Fire event, caught our first wild Charizard (with AA moveset!) at Jurong West.
- Chasing Lapras during the Water event! Rhyhorn, Geodude and Omanyte during the Rock event.
- One Sunday morning, Aerodactyl decides to appear in my path.

4 Feb 2017                                                                           24 Feb 2017

- Never dream of meeting Ms Chansey again until she starts spawning more often during the Pink Valentine's event in 2017. We ventured into unknown grounds to get many her!
- Finally meeting the naughty, giggling Gengar in the same month too.

25 Mar 2017

- GEN 2 pokemons were released in Feb 2017. We filled up our pokedex fast within 2 days, leaving Unown to be most unpredictable.
- Beat the jam when we spotted the creature unexpectedly in Changi Village. Turned the corner to Leuchars Rd, walked the dark path with an exciting crowd to nab it!
11 May 2017

- Ampharos was last to enter our GEN 2 pokedex.
- She stood at the end of the Woodlands Waterfront, and made me ran on waters to reach her!

27 Jul 2017                                                                         08 Aug 2017

- Legendary birds were introduced in July. Doing just 1 raid per day, we were lucky to bag them all.
- The new gym system that started in June also encouraged us to begin active gym guards and defense.

                                                                  12 Aug 2017                                                                       24 Nov 2017

- Our tally at level 39.
- 40, we are coming. (updated.)
