Uh.

Ink you have to tell us about your former career as a professional driver. Does this relate to that mysterious job you'd never talk about? Did you used to drive a politician around in an armoured limo?
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Ink is not at liberty to answer questions concerning his career as a professional driver.

Next question, please.

Just following my day to day route just mostly yielded Pidgey and zubat. It's hard to stay motivated if you can't get access to a wide variety of Pokemon at least when you can track you can see a small detour can help get something good. If I don't know where anything is there is no point walking off the beaten track as I'm no more likely to find anything by picking a random St to walk down verses going the way I was in the 1st place.

When I went to get dinner I'm pretty sure I caught a minivan sitting still at a green light because they were next to a pokeshop.  I had to give them a friendly honk to get moving.
Probably not a Goat, either.

Yeah, I also like just basically walking around, and playing this game has allowed me to discover some cool locations. I've just been needing some excuse to get my ass walking again.

I loved exploring the countryside and the nearby forests as a kid, but being in an urban environment has put kind of a dampener on the mood. But now I've realised there is still a lot to see in a city.

I catch what pops up. But it's true it gets boring when you've gotten all the basic pokemon. But I've noticed there are a few locations where pokemon pop up every now and then. So I visit those places in the hopes of getting something nice. Sometimes it works.

And if I want to go running, I can pop an incense, and increase the pokemon that turn up. The first time I used an incense, I almost caught a Scyther in the very last minutes. But due to lag, I just missed it. Damn.

Woot, got a Scyther from my 10 km egg. The pokegods have heard my pleas.

In other positive news, haven't gotten freeze balls for a while. And since the update, I haven't gotten any random curveballs. Neat.

Edit: balls, not eggs

I'll let this one speak for itself.

Spoilers: It's amazing.
Not a winner anymore.

Those region-specific forms are actually pretty cool. Wish they would do more of that instead of introducing a new lame bird/rodent/bat/cat combo for every single region. I think I'd prefer a region-specific Rattata over all the weird derps they pump out these days. Just give it a dark-type evolution with a cooler design and we're done.

President-Detective Trumplumbo is a MUCH better Raticate than Raticate.

The original ****ty rats and birds are the ****tiest.

Nah, Patrat is the worst. Look at those eyes.

Bidoof looks incredibly dumb. Like, it must literally have the lowest IQ. Won't even comment on Bunnelby. The evolution is... awful.

Zigzagoon and Sentret are okay.

I really like the new forms. :D New exeggutor is so derpy looking.

Do the totem/kanuna things replace gyms? That'd be really interesting.
No way dude, you're trolling me.
