Pokémon GO: 44th Week

Peace! Another week over, another event ended.

I finally got my highly-anticipated Houndoom (evolved from Houndour) and am still walking Larvitar. The end is near~~~
Tuesday I was rather sick (thanks to female problems and heat) and missed my daily PokéStop spin. I probably will skip on Sunday to turn back to my usual rhythm of SUnday = 7th day 😀



We got a new patch! Gyms look really different now and are somewhat PokéStops 😀

So before the patch the gyms were undergoing maintenance and any Pokémon being stocked in before that was kicked out *hoorah*
After they decided to push the new system – which might’ve been yesterday afternoon up to this morning, I don’t know – I was surprised how it looks like now. (First picture taken a few days before, the other two today…. but man this looks like we want to shoot rockets with the gyms now)



You can spin disks now at these PokéGyms – and you should!

  • The first time you spin a disk at a Gym it will give you the Gym Batch plus items (cooldown as usual PokéStops is 5 minutes).
  • The first spin per day will reward you with a special berry (didn’t see it in inventory but could use it on Pokémon at gym) and a Raid Pass.
  • Spinning a disk in a gym that is occupied by your team grants a “Team Bonus” (+1 per Pokémon)


CP = Health and will be depleted by each fight until it hits 0 – then the monster will be kicked out of the gym. The berries help restore the CP/Health.

You will also receive a popup message in the app when your monster gets kicked out from a gym.



Besides that: You CAN NOT fight against your own Pokémon anymore!

They changed the interface as you can already see above but also for arrangement of the Pokémon in the gym – looks really nice (usually the hearts are displayed, my app showed a Network error so it didn’t load the hearts :D):

Pokémon GO: 42nd & 43rd Week

Well as you can see the interval of posting declines 😀
Not because I don’t play but because nothing happens 😀

Well, I am still catching things. I am trying to beat other teams in gyms.
I didn’t catch anything new but I was able to use some of my upgrade items on caught monsters 🙂 Less crap in inventory *lol*

My Plus finally ran out of battery. Took me a few days to get a new battery and played less in that time buuuuuuuuuut I am back playing between home-> work and vice versa + home until sleep now 🙂

A new patch was released with some bug fixes although I don’t know what they fixed *lol*


Tonight a new event will start \o/ maybe I’ll be able to catch a Houndour.
Specifications of the Solstice Event:

  • 13th of June, 1PM PDT – 20th of June, 1PM PDT
  • rate of catching fire and ice types increased

Pokémon GO: 30th Week

Whooooo~ another week is over.

I’m still at level 33 but due to catching an Omanyte I could speed up the candy-gathering and evolved mine to an Omastar *_*

I walked my Wartortle for 2 candies to get another Blastoise (and get rid of my old ones) and right now walking my Charmeleon to evolve it to a better Charizard (and getting rid of the other 2 I have due to space issues and I’m not using them anyways lol)

I had lots of 10Km eggs last weekend and bought 2 incubators to walk them…. arf…. got 2 Skarmory, 2 Dratini, 1 Chansey (finally?!), 1 Larvitar and 2 Gligars from them.
Originally I wanted to keep all of those 10KM eggs until I get incubators from leveling up to level 35 but… really….8 slots 10KM eggs were a bit too much in the end.
Now I’m down to 4x 2KM eggs and 4x 5KM eggs plus a new 10KM egg.
I also hatched a 100% Bulbasaur from a 2KM egg so I need to get some candies to evolve it -_-

The train had issues last week for 2 days so I took a roundabout with Metro and Bus to get home and was able to get a Sudowoodo and evolved my noobish Chinchou to Lanturn.

This week is also really exhausting potion-wise and reviver-wise. I usually beat the gym at the train station while waiting for my train. But I lack lots of potions and revives right now. I got none of each today 😀 and still 4 monsters that need heals 😀
But it will work out somehow 😀 I guess the main problem with that was that I leveled up the gym to level 4 on Monday, haha (train was late so lots of time).
