“We’re going on a Pokémon hunt, we’re gunna catch a big one! We’re not scared!”
I’ve had that in my head all day… Lemme just take a moment here to point out how creepy that nursery rhyme is. What do they want to catch a bear for? Are they going to eat it? I do wonder.
Anyway, me and Matt went to East Park in Hull today to have a walk around in the sun. As soon as we arrived, we saw crowds of around 30 people all sat looking at their phones or walking around eagerly as if they were trying to find something. Pokémon! Our original plans were quickly discarded and we settled down in the crowd, with a bottle of water and a portable charger, to catch ’em all. Some of the people were continuously placing lures at the Pokéstops so we were flooded with choice too. I even caught an Onix!
If you didn’t already guess, I grew up with Pokémon so I was quickly sucked into the new craze. Pokémon practically defines my childhood… it even sparked my little love for drawing – I used to draw rare Pokémon cards, hoping people would trade them with me. Fraud? Probably. I forever dreamt of owning my own Pikachu or Rapidash too. Pikachu is loyal as hell and Rapidash is a horse and you can’t really beat that.
We had a great day. We walked just over 7 miles so we definitely knocked out our share of exercise for the day too! My poor little feet are suffering now though.
What do you think of Pokémon Go?
