Pokemon Go

Pokemon Go

Pokemon Go! errr in my case it is Pokemon STOP!

As much as I would like to say I was the bestest at Pokemon, I can’t! I am not biologically 7. Pokemon was popular when my daughter was 7. So while they were around my house via toys, cards, movies, books, gameboy cartridges, etc. I never understood them nor got into them.

I keep reading funny posts about people playing Pokemon. They found a way to get kids back outside. Unfortunately this is such a rare event that old people are yelling at kids,” GET OFF MY LAWN! OR I’M CALLING THE COPS! ” Kids are being carted back to their parents for being alone when they are 11 and 12 years old. I think it is a really sad statement about our society when a child playing outside means they are up to no good or they are in danger themselves.

I have yet to capture my starter Pokemon. Yes, laugh if you must. I was able to create my avatar and I can see her. I can walk along the maps and Pokemons appear. For the life of me, I can not figure out how to get the pokeball up to shoot at a pokemon. So there you have it I have ZERO pokemon captured.

The first time I tried to play, I could see pokemon’s but I didn’t have a way to capture them. No pokeball on my screen and swiping did nothing.

I decided to read a bunch of tutorials and watch some youtube videos. It did not seem to help.

The second time I played, I had a pokeball on my screen but never saw a single pokemon pop up. I had nothing to shoot at. Yes! I was walking. I walked a couple of blocks. I didn’t walk up and down the same block.


While you are all out there playing, let us not forget fountain girl and the lessons she taught us years ago.
