The last month has been a very busy one, but this last week has been a pretty quiet one. Even in the Pokemon Go! world I haven’t been able to get out to do too much. Just because it wasn’t a super exciting week doesn’t mean that their isn’t things to share with you!
Because we didn’t get a chance to go out for a Pokemon adventure this week I also didn’t get a chance to catch much of anything new. I was able to catch repeats of Pokemon I already had and as a result I was able to evolve several Pokemon. Of these evolutions the most notable was an Ice Ninetales. I hatched a ice Vulpix and just so happened to already have enough candy to evolve her into a Ninetales. That was a nice surprise! You can see all of the evolutions from the last week below.
The Halloween event that has been offering double candy has been great! It has giving me the opportunity to evolve some Pokemon that I didn’t think I would ever get enough candies to evolve. It has also allowed me to make progress toward some of the Pokemon that require 400 candies, like Magikarp… Even still Magikarp is a distant dream as I still only have just under 200 candies for him.
We did have a little bit of time after church this last weekend where we had a little bit of time before a birthday party we were invited to. We spent this time driving around town and visiting gyms. Most of the gyms were Team Valor gyms so my wife was able to put a handful of Pokemon in gyms around town. I was able to put a couple in gyms for myself too. The most excited part of this trip was as we came across a gym we found a Halloween Squirtle was a raid. Wife and I teamed up to take him down. After a bit of a struggle we were both able to catch him!
All in all it was a quiet week, but I was still able to make some progress toward a few evolutions and make it to a few gyms around town. We hope to make a Pokemon Go! adventure soon, but it is going to be increasingly more difficult with the cold weather starting to set in! Sounds like some warm clothes and a warm cup of hot chocolate will be in order!
