I am far from a Pokemon Go expert and while I have been aware of and interested in Pokemon for quite some time I never really had much opportunity to play. I am also definitely what you would consider an older player being that I am a father that is closer to 50 then 40 at this time.
I teach martial arts for a living and have been gaming in one way or another for most of my life starting with the original pong game. I have played on many systems since as well as PC and still like to get in some time on the Xbox when it’s possible.
When Pokemon Go was first released I actually had no plans of downloading it on my phone. I figured it would be something that would only mean my daughter driving me crazy about using my phone so I didn’t bother getting it at first. After about a week or 2 though, everyone at the martial arts school was playing so I figured I would give it a try.
I didn’t have as much time as the kids did so I was behind for a while but, I would also let my daughter play for me so I actually started to catch up as far as leveling goes. I was also able to get a bit of a jump because I passed 5 PokeStops to and from work twice a day. The school also has pretty good amount of spawns there and even some harder to find Pokemon. I caught my first Pikachu while I was at work.
So now I have been playing the game pretty much everyday since and keep it on to get any GPS drift I can as well. I have yet to miss a streak since they were added and am almost at level 30 as you can see from my screen shot above.
I know most people are doing video but I really don’t have a lot of time for shooting and editing so I figured why not write a blog. I have done some writing before and will probably add videos anyway from people that will do it better then I would. That is the beauty of having a blog, you can add content from almost anywhere.
The goal here is going to be to just write about my own adventures as a Pokemon Go trainer as well as any news that may come about. I would like to try to get in a post every day but that may be a bit of a challenge. Still I will keep things updated here and hopefully you will find everything interesting enough to keep coming back.
If time permits maybe I will even venture in to some video but for write now I hope you enjoy my Pokemon Go Catch Em All Blog!
