Pokémon Go - Level 39

In case you don't know Pokémon Go is a smartphone game that enables you to hunt down Pokémon in the real world and take part in virtual battles. Pokémon began as a video game on Game Boys in 1995. Since then trading cads, cartoons and films have made it the highest grossing media franchise of all time. It has been a while since I blogged about one of our Pokémon Go walks or raids. My son had lost interest over the last few years so I hadn't played quite so much. However, lockdown and daily walks got him back in and I have finally hit the 2nd highest level:

I started playing 3 years ago and it is amazing how far I have walked and places I have been to in that time:

The motto of the game is gotta catch 'em all and I have been doing my best to fill up my Pokédex. New regions get released which match up with the video games and cartoon series. I have also been making my Pokémon as powerful as possible to do better in battle and raids:

One of the fun features of the game is that you have an augmented reality option which allows you to see the Pokémon in front of you. It's even better when you capture them with a human or pet in the shot:

I have to say that there have been so many pluses to playing the game for 3 years:
  • we have walked a lot more
  • we have visited new places and learned facts about them from PokéStops
  • made new friends through raids
  • time together as a family outside

Now I just need another 5 million XP to hit level 40!
