    Ok, that’s something I did not know about you πŸ™‚ Pokemon craze somehow missed me… this one looks powerful, but nowhere near as cute as Pikachu πŸ™‚

    1. Hmm I wouldn’t say I caught onto a craze, I only started playing in November last year πŸ˜‰ but when you walk a lot outside its a nifty little game πŸ™‚ and I do like the design.

      In that case I might share my shiny Pikachu next 🀣

    1. As I wrote to Piotrek it’s hard to say I got into the Pokemon craze seeing as I started playing in November last year, but I’d lie if I said I didn’t enjoy playing it now πŸ˜‰ the creatures are sure cute and the design (playing outdoors + augmented reality) is pretty cool 😎

        1. I actually doubt it. My fried used to play it a lot at some point but now she’s into Pokemon πŸ˜‰ I think one game like this is more than enough for me, and I was never such a big fan of HP… I like Pokemon design and besides, I mostly treat it as a pleasant diversion on walks and stuff πŸ˜‰

    1. Honestly, I know there’s Pokemon TCG, and that there are plenty of Pokemon video games, but this mobile game mostly stands on its own. I don’t buy Pokemon cards, and what you see on the phone is just from the mobile. But there’s supposed to be a crossover event of some kind soon, so I’ll probably know more by then πŸ˜‰

        1. I know you’d expect to be able to load up your cards into the mobile, but it doesn’t work that way. For now, Pokemon Go (also because it’s partially marketed for kids, I suppose) is a separate entity: you catch Pokemon spawning in augmented reality where the world is basically anchored to real-life locations. So every km you walk in real life is a km you walk in the game, but also the Pokemon spawning in the game only spawn there, in places anchored to real-life locations.

    1. Heh, me neither (till last November ;)) Apparently, it’s still quite big. And mostly played by adults, I guess as an incentive to spend more time outside πŸ˜‰

      Stardust is a resource used to power up Pokemon (when you have enough candies) and to trade Pokemon between trainers. Sounds like a drug name, but no πŸ˜‰

        1. In the contest between me and traffic, I’d definitely back up me πŸ˜›

          It comes in lovely little bottles… Also, you can use star pieces to grind more stardust πŸ˜€

    1. Yeah, I just started playing Pokemon Go in November… I know there’s a card game and a load of video games, but I’m just a small-time mobile game player, mostly during walks around the park πŸ˜‰
      I feel so green now with all your pro questions! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

          1. Yeees! I grew up with these games as a teeny tiny boy. πŸ˜€ I haven’t however picked up a Switch to play the newer stuff released by Nintendo but I tell myself I’ll catch up on it all in a not-so-near future haha!

            I’ve tried Pokemon Go for a while during the vanilla era but stopped after maybe a month (never got around to making a habit out of it to be able to stay up to date with everything). You do make me want to jump back in just to see how it is nowadays! πŸ˜€

            1. LOL, do give it a try! πŸ˜€ Maybe it would even turn beneficial to your health, what with all the walking (unless you want to cheat and install a gps drift app or some such… 🀣) I think it’s more fun when you have other friends playing because then it’s a social thing. Some of my friends are playing, so it’s definitely more enjoyable for me with all the gift sending and trading and raids, and seeing who caught what ;).

    1. There’s Pokemon Go fest coming up this weekend 😁 I don’t think I have your trainer code but I’d love to be friends with you on Pokemon Go, Mogsy! πŸ™‚
