Confessions of a Pokemon Go novice
Pokemon Go has been live for less than two weeks and it’s taken the world by storm. Every man and their dog seem to be playing so, in a fit of FOMO, I downloaded the app.
But the truth is I’m really bad at it! I can’t catch Zubats, I chose a Bulbasaur for my first Pokemon, I’ve lost all my Pokemon battles and all my eggs hatch into Rattatas! Nobody needs more Rattatas!!! It means I now have three Raticates and who wants to battle with Raticate? At this sad rate I’ll never be a Pokemon master.
Working at Upper Hutt City Library has really been my Pokemon saving grace. We are a Pokestop so I can replenish all my wasted Pokeballs and, even better, there are two other stops on the right of us and two more on the left. Lures are also a regular occurrence which has really added to my Rattata and Machop collection.
Another great thing is that Pinehaven Library is a gym. So I’ve been practicing my battle skills there in the hopes of taking this gym and making my co-workers proud. I also thought if I practiced long and hard enough I might finally win one because practice makes perfect, right?!? Only 9, 997 hours left to go…
Make sure to follow us on Twitter as we will be posting regular Pokemon updates such as Lures, events and the blessed day when I finally take that Pinehaven gym.
