The sun was shining (at least, more than it has been recently) and my "nearby" box was showing some interesting silhouettes. Also, it was Friday, which is my non-work day and a day on which I always intend to get exercise and yet, never seem to. And so, at about 11.35 I ventured out on my first "real", Pokemon-hunting walk.
I realised fairly quickly that I'm not comfortable specifically hunting Pokemon. I very quickly decided on a route that would take me past a couple of local poke stops, and decided that if Pokemon popped up I would catch them (or try to) but I wouldn't use Pokevision to find out what was nearby, or worry myself about why little green explosions near me weren't turning into Pokemon to catch.
The result of this walk was:
Five entirely new Pokemon caught: Clefairy, Geodude, Hitmonlee, Staryu, and Bulbasaur (who is possibly the cutest EVAR!)
2 each of Duduo, Rattata and Pidgey
1 each of Golbat, Poliwag, Spearow, Caterpie, Bellsprout, and Zubat
1 rascally Poliwag ran away, and
2 eggs hatched. One was 300m off hatching when I began, but I put another in the incubator when that one hatched, and that second (2km) egg hatched just as I got home.
ALSO: I've registered 41 "active minutes" on my Fitbit, and am almost at 5k steps for the day when I often don't get above 2k on a Friday.
You know what? I'm proud of myself.
