Pokemon Go

Yes i know I’m late to be blogging about this (sorry), but as a Pokemon Master it’s still my duty…

Is this a joke?

Is this a joke?

I joined the game late, well maybe like 3 weeks after it launched? I’m currently level 23, just short of 24, but i haven’t been playing for quite some time (mostly because I still don’t have Charizard so I’m pouting about it)…

Near my work - abundance!

Near my work – abundance!

It’s strange how before the game came out, i’d always think to myself, ”yea, those would be my six Pokemon, they’re my fave, they’re so cool…” but when you actually play the game, your top six are totally not of your choosing (unless you’re willing to work hard, or should i say walk far), but otherwise if you’re just average into the game, your top six will mostly be determined by luck (hatching eggs, being in the right location at the right time).

When the game first launched, we went to the Sydney Opera House on the one Saturday, and literally everyone was consumed by the game – it’s one of those iconic moments, when people are no longer flocking for a selfie at a landmark, but rather to catch something rare…

I did try several times to take the Opera House gym, but its literally impossible, so many people are challenging it, it ends up actually like glitching and kicking you out – too much traffic. I have taken over other less crowded gym locations temporarily.

Is anyone else playing/was playing? I chose the yellow team because i liked the whole instinct/intuition story behind it, then later i learnt my friends all chose blue just because it’s their favourite colour, how annoying.

Cosmic Wanderlust – Poem

And there I stood, at the mouth of the precipice, and looked down into eternity. If only I could see a glimpse of the future there; in the dark backdrop, I could change direction for a more favourable outcome.

It showed me nothing but shadow at first. Then suddenly, as a deep well being spoken into, it heard my thoughts and echoed them back to me in question.

A mirror beyond the form, a mirror for the soul, to look deeper into our contents.

Hypnotised by the infinity of the drop, I gazed in the hollow space longer, blinking less frequently.

When I finally freely fell in, my body like a towel to black ink, I absorbed all the knowledge suspended in those empty spaces. As I accelerated still falling, the darkness fell above, and I was greeted by Light below me.

Suddenly I was no longer falling, but floating – in the universe. Surrounded by stars and planets and other cosmic wanderlust. Free to swim and see and know – wherever I pleased to float I could go…

You found me…

Yes, I’ve been gone for 5 months, i didn’t mean to abandon you my Nerd Knights, but it was not in vain!!! I moved to a new country 5 months ago (now living in Sydney, Australia), and you’ll be proud to know that I’ve been doing my geek duty of catching Pokemon near the Opera House (among other things)…

The geek culture and fandom following here is definitely way higher than it is in Africa, so it’s really awesome to finally find a like-minded community to roam with.

Merchandise Monday #55

A party of Dwarves stopped by in the garden on their way to the Lonely Mountain. My mom used to have mini garden gnomes and plastic frogs in and around the garden, but I think time and the elements got to them. I think my strong Dwarves will fare better:

The also have metal and battle damaged Poke-balls which look really cool. I always start with fire type though, so i’ll probably end up with the Charmander crystal Poke-ball. Who is your starter?

He comes with a voice chip, I haven’t used it yet since he’s still in the box, but it obviously has some of his notable quotes:
