So, unless you have to be living under a rock for the past week, many of you have heard of the new app called Pokemon Go.
Now, I will start off by saying that I didn’t understand why people liked the app so much. I was never one who got into Pokemon when I was younger, so I didn’t really feel the need to download the app.
And honestly, I was making a little bit of fun of my friends who had downloaded the app. I thought it was a silly concept for people to have to leave their houses to go and collect Pokemon. Wouldn’t it be easier to find Pokemon on a virtual map and not leave my house?
Unfortunately, my coworker and really good friend Elise told me to download the game and try it because a bunch of coworkers were going to a local park to hunt for Pokemon. And since I love my coworkers I decided to try it out.
And now I regret it because I AM ADDICTED.
Yes, that’s right. I went through 6 levels in 3 hours with my coworkers. And, because you have to walk certain distances to hatch the eggs, I took a 30 minute walk to try to hatch 2 eggs. Yeah…
Now, my two highest Pokemon are my Arbok and my Growlithe. And my coworkers and I have planned to go Pokemon hunting once a week. Addicted? Probably. How long will it last? I don’t know. But I know that for now, everyone loves it and I might as well join the trend.
Side Note: I originally typed up this blog on Wednesday the 13th. Since then, I went on another Pokemon hunt with my coworkers and found just a few more Pokemon.
These are my current highest Pokemon.
And…I hatched two Magikarps in my eggs. They are some of the hardest Pokemon to find and you need a lot of them to level up one. And I hatched two. My coworker Dean was not happy.
HELP ME I’M ADDICTED!
