  1. Supposedly we may be getting it Monday or Wednesday, but just a rumor. Either way I’m hyped for this feature! Time to finally get a Gengar and a Haunter just by running around a lot. Level 27 at the moment so I like to think that I’ll have a full Pokedex (Not counting the out of country ones) by 30.

      • Well those are 2 that I’ll be walking around with as well! Trust me, not much changes between 15 and 26. I’m still missing all of the final starters and a few other final forms that are eluding me. I don’t see myself getting much farther than 30 though because with school around, I have a lot less time to play. Can’t wait til I’m retired and out of school xD

      • Haha yeah I need to find Bulbasaur. It’s the only the starter I’m missing XD. It’s a lot harder to evolve them since they need candy. If only I was in school and do my walking there. XD
