.:Pokemon Go:. Someday... by CJCroen
.:Pokemon Go:. Someday...
...that's gonna be me.

I caught a Beedrill last night. I'm also real close to evolving Stinger into one!

Both models-:icon2234083174:

EDIT: As of today, Stinger is officially a Beedrill! Now I only have to evolve Toadstool and Poison Ivy and the whole core team will be complete!
.:Pokemon Go:. We've Come So Far by CJCroen
.:Pokemon Go:. We've Come So Far
It started small, just me and the Bulbasaur I chose as my starter. I named her Poison Ivy, and Professor Willow seemed happy at the choice I made. My sister had chosen Charmander and Squirtle went to someone else, but Poison Ivy and I...we'd be a team.

My first catch was fairly easy--a Rattata I found in my backyard. I named him Wormtail. It seemed a little unfair to name this bold, loud little creature after a slimy coward from my favorite book series, but I thought it was fitting. Wormtail and Poison Ivy didn't initially see eye to eye, but I was able to rope them in.

The third catch was a little unexpected, but she was also a creature I found in my backyard. It was a Paras, that strange little larval creature with the mushrooms on its back. She was a fairly feisty creature, whom I named Toadstool. She seemed to scare Poison Ivy and Wormtail a little, which I found amusing.

The next one was a double catch--two Pidgeys I found while trekking the hill in my backyard. Initially I had only seen one, who I caught and named Hurricane, but a second one flew in, evidently not happy that his brother had been taken. I decided to catch him too and named him Tornado.

My sixth and last on-hand Pokemon was a Weedle I named Stinger. He was adorable, though it was hard to keep Tornado and Hurricane away from him.

Since I already had six Pokemon on hand now, most of the next ones were sent to the PC storage systems. While I would withdraw them occasionally for gym battles, my main team was the original six ones I caught.

In time, they grew and learned. The first one I evolved was Tornado, who grew into a handsome Pidgeotto. Hurricane soon followed. It wasn't long before Wormtail and Stinger had evolved as well--Wormtail was fully grown now, and Stinger was pupating into a Beedrill. Soon it came time to evolve one of my two Pidgeottos into a Pidgeot. Since I had evolved Tornado first, I decided that it was only fair that Hurricane went next. Soon, however, I had two Pidgeots on my team, and so far, only Toadstool and Poison Ivy haven't evolved yet.

But I can wait. We've already come so very far, and we've got so far to go.

Okay, just as a head's up, my Bulbasaur, Kakuna and Paras haven't reached their final evolutions yet. That last part is just a hypothetical!
If you couldn't tell, I'm seriously lovin' Pokemon Go!

.:Pokemon Go:. Stronger Every Day by CJCroen
.:Pokemon Go:. Stronger Every Day
A Pokemon training journey isn't easy. Sometimes you have to give up some friends to benefit others. Other times, they don't make it. Still other times, you have to deal with the fact that they'll be happier in the wild. But every day we get stronger for it. And so, at the cost of transferring many Weedles, Pidgeys and Rattatas, I managed to get Stinger, Hurricane and Wormtail to reach the next stage in their evolution.

Okay, so into serious mode, evolving these guys has become a goal of mine. Wormtail and Hurricane have finally reached the final stage in their evolution, Stinger will likely become a Beedrill in due time and Tornado is one step away from becoming a Pidgeot. Sadly, Toadstool and Poison Ivy aren't any closer to their next evolutionary levels, so I'm still gonna have a lot of work ahead of me to make them stronger. But I know it'll be worth it :D

And as an aside, I really hate the term "evolution" as it's used in Pokemon. This is NOT how evolution works! Evolution is a change on the population level over millions of years. Pokemon changes are closer to metamorphosis. Or just growing up. But that's just my rant about it XD

.:Pokemon Go:. The Egg Hatches
So this is a picture of my first egg hatching in Pokemon Go! It was a Spearow.

I spent so long telling the egg that for all the trouble it gave me, I better get something good, and I got a Spearow. I decided to call her Britney as a punishment for making me walk so long (so I stole her name from Honest Game Trailers: Britney Spearow XD)

Also, yesterday I managed to evolve more of my Pokemon, which I'll show you next (I'm in a good mood, so I think I'll upload that today too)!

We'll be driving back home tomorrow.
I'm going to call a friend of mine either when I get there or the day after, depending on our arrival time (AxelChakramz, you already know about this)--so I'm making sure that my phone's fully charged!
EDIT: Also, tomorrow's my birthday! :D
