Are you on a quest to Catch them all?
Last weekend we found ourselves at the park stuck under a tree in the rain while trying to figure out how a pokestop worked on my husband’s phone. Once the rain lightened up, we ran home. Before it rained though, we caught a few and walked around, hunting em down. I saw how fun the app was, and how much fun we were all having, so I finally caved and downloaded it. We jumped on the Pokemon train and we joined Team Instinct.
It’s just entertaining. I usually sigh when we get stuck in traffic but, the other day while we were driving in stop & go, one laned traffic all down a main road, the kids were in the backseat catching Pokemon, hitting up all the Pokestops on the way home and having a blast. If you’re sitting there thinking about how dumb this app is, or how you don’t understand the hype, I was right there with you last week. I’d never seen the cartoon or played with any of the Pokemon stuff as a kid. I just didn’t get it. I guess don’t knock it til you try it.
It’s usually a last minute decision to head out on our walks, forgetting all of the important things. So, I’ve compiled a little list of things you might find yourself needing while out playing the game.
Solar Charger. Nothing stinks worse than being in the middle of catching a pokemon and your phone dies. Ugh! Talk about a bummer, right?!
Sunblock. You’re bound to be outdoors for a bit if you’re trying to catch them all. You don’t want to get burned while doing so.
Stay hydrated! Super important! Try this Squirtle water bottle to help you do so.
Snacks. Chances are you’ll get a bit hungry with all the walking around. Why not store your snacks in some Pokeballs?! How fun, right?!
And here’s just a little list of things I’ve found that you might just love if you’re a fan.
Also, you should grab a cool hat like Ash’s
I’m really considering ordering one of these lunchboxes for Fin & one for Maddie.
And I’m sure that we’ll be picking up some Pokemon clothes and accessories when we do our back to school shopping!
What about you? Have you joined the craze? What team did you join and why?
