I saw Seels and Shelders are krabbies and horseas today, but I couldn't get anywhere near the buggers. I always liked water types the best.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Managed to hatch a couple of eggs. Would've hatched them all if it weren't for the server issues.

At least I got to see a pretty sweet sunset at the countryside.

Got a Dratini yesterday, people were flocking the area to get it.

The servers were already down, and now it has been released in Canada.

With the game freezing you will notice the loading icon still spinning so while it is frozen on screen the game is still deciding on if you got the Pokemon. When you reopen if you caught it then it will be in your inventory.

Insence doesn't seem worth it for me. Walking around the immediate area will result in far more Mon showing. If you are near a poke-stop then a lure is far more effective. I sense spawns maybe 3 or 4 Pokemon in half and hour for me.

Also fianl revolved an Eevee and I tried renaming for a Jolteon (name your Eevee Sparky). It worked for me.

I can't help but feel that Eevee nickname thing is just a product of confirmation bias.

On the other hand I have to commend people for reviving the kind of dumb rumours that swarmed round the original pokemon games (There's totally a Mew under that truck you guys!)

Yeah a buddy got a nice vaporeon named Pyro
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

What I find particularly amusing is in the crappy meme I saw that was perpetrating this myth they were suggesting that the nickname to get a Vaporeon was "Rainer".

Like, really? That's the name a fat middle class white American couple would call their disgusting spoiled son, not the name of a pokemon.

Obviously you should call your Vaporeon "Splashy".

I caught a tangela at a vineyard.  Seems appropriate.
Probably not a Goat, either.

Truth.

Can't we just keep this game First World? Did we really have to give it to the Italians and the Scottish?

Don't be a weenis, you're already getting the next real game four days early.

You'll get your TRAINEMON and CREEPACHU before I do ;_;
Not a winner anymore.

Weeeeeeel. The rumor came from the TV anime when Ash meets the evee brothers who have a Rainer, Pyro, and Sparky.

And the Horrendous Horrorfish and Cosplaybear.

These kids on their phones are missing out.
