The newest updates to Pokemon Go have renewed my interest in the app once again. The rain, however, has kept me inside and unable to go walking/hunting as much as I’d like.
Most notably, the holiday event has brought us a Pikachu with a Santa hat. I’ve only ever caught/seen one Pikachu before this, so they’re pretty rare here to start with. In fact, they’re still fairly rare here, even with the event happening.
I’ve seen a Pikachu show up on my tracker twice since the update, but have been unable to find it both times. Yesterday, while shopping for groceries at the nearest Target (which has a Starbucks that did not become a Pokestop… bummer…), I saw a whole slew of Pokemon hanging out.
It’s nice that there does seem to be an increase in spawn, but none of these were what I was looking for.
Still haven’t found a Ditto, either!
Speaking of the tracker, I’m finally seeing the new tracking system they’ve added to the game. Honestly, it doesn’t do much to help me. If you’re close enough to a Pokestop, the tracker lets you know what’s hanging out at the stop. Everything else is still pure guesswork.
Since I’m rarely at a place that is near enough to a Pokestop, I’m still just as much in the dark as I’ve always been about Pokemon location. I guess it’s nice if you live in a city, though.
Gen 2 Arrival
We’ve also got new Gen 2 Pokemon in the game… but only from hatching eggs. And only from eggs that you received after the Gen 2 update. This is where I stand on this…
Old eggs. Every one of them.
Thankfully, I do have a few incubators that are working to speed up the process. I was using those even before the update came out, so I hope I can get to walking and get some of these hatched to pick up some new eggs.
Also, is it just me, but I haven’t found a 10K egg in a LONG, LONG time…
Those who are playing, are you having any luck scoring a Pikachu?
