For the past two years, I've been hunting wild animals. I catch them, train them, and then force them to fight. No, I'm not involved in cockfighting, or dog fighting. I play Pokemon Go. I love walking and exploring towns, so it makes playing the game pretty easy. And beyond that, the game is a great excuse for me to go out for a walk, or to walk home instead of taking the train.
I started gathering Pokemon game cards last year, and from time to time I've gone card hunting.
There are over 800 different Pokemon, and I'm down to needing about 30 now. About half of those are the most recent generation, though some odd creatures remain elusive. Blastoise finally found his way into my collection last week, and I can't find a a Smeargle. I guess if you don't play Pokemon those names mean nothing to you, and until I played Pokemon Go I was in the same boat. But now they're on my radar, almost as much as baseball cards.
Do you (still) play Pokemon Go? Do you have a favorite Pokemon?
