So yeah, I eventually gave in and installed Pokémon Go and it's been an interesting journey since Friday morning when I started. With my trust Pikachu at my side we've explored the areas of the city tied to my routine such as the office at BGC or around the Sietch in Cubao and we've caught way too many Pidgeys and Rattatas. But all those silly normal type Pokémon have helped me get my character to Level 15 in a matter of days, which is apparently a thing since I've already gotten past some of the longer term players at the office.
Then again, I wouldn't mind waiting to catch more Pokémon, gain a few more levels and really push my characters. I've reached the trainable limit for my Pinsir and I've only just evolved my first Eevee and I'm not happy with the relative levels. But it's only been three days so things will pick up in time. And there's only so much time to play as there's still all the fun real-life stuff to deal with like work and household chores and of course the more involved tabletop gaming.
We gotta talk about yesterdays awesome double finale another time. But man it was super awesome.
