#278.5 - Wingull make their nests on steep sea cliffs, where they can catch updrafts to help them soar to great heights. While young they are weak fliers and poor flappers, and mostly glide by riding ocean winds. As they age, their wings strengthen and allow them to travel further inland; though they still prefer to live by the sea, where they can scoop up prey with their widening bill. As Wingull mature into Pelipper they often help out others by transporting small Pokemon and items.

I'm gonna be moving to Kalos from Sinnoh pretty soon, but my Luxray really hates going in her pokeball, and I don't know of any really safe ways to transport pokemon. I'd really prefer not to keep her in a kennel on a flight or anything... do you know what I can do?

She has to go in her Pokéball or kennel if you take any sort of commercial flight. Even service Pokémon often have to be housed that way, since there are way too many liabilities involved with riding a public plane (would you want a fire type wondering around the cabin?). Your Luxray will not be comfortable, but discomfort will not kill her.

The only other option is to book a private flight with someone willing to accept a loose Pokémon, but such opportunities are few and far between. You could try driving to Kalos, but between the ferry fees, on-road costs, and overnight stays, you’re facing at least $10,000 for the trip.

Let’s talk about Soldier 76

The thing about Soldier 76 is that I love all the dad jokes surrounding him and how he’s “old fashioned” and such but the truth is due to the story’s timeline, which sets the beginnings of Overwatch to be about 30 years in our future (AKA the 2040s), John “Jack” Morrison was born at least post 2000s. In fact, depending on your headcanon for his age (I personally put him between 45-55), he was actually possibly born between 2020-2030.

The present year in the Overwatch game itself is 60 years in the future, in 2076. Other dad, Reinhardt, is 61 years old, which means he himself was born in our present decade, 2015 probably. This places John Morrison Being born, I’d say, a narrower range between 2025-2030.

Since it’s impossible to think about what may have been popular in the 2020s for him to grow old with and emulate in later years, it’s definitely fine to think of him in our time period’s perception of dads, with their barbeques, lunchboxes, and difficulties handling technology… but, what’s also possible is headcanoning him being an old dad of our generation, liking the things we like now.

Imagine Soldier 76 reminiscing the days when the iPhone 12 came out and he got one for his birthday, and how these “newfangled teleporters and flying cars” are so complicated, since his first one could’ve been something like a used, old 2016 Kia Optima. Visualize him sighing about the good old days of the 3DS, and how he used to just transport his pokemon over Internet. Picture this: he misses the simple times when you could just Google something. Maybe he has an old DDR machine in his garage he likes to boot up. 

IMAGINE HIM TEARING UP WHENEVER HE REMEMBERS HIS FIRST CONCERT: THE 21 PILOTS REUNION TOUR

I’m not saying you’re dadding him wrong, I’m just saying you’re not dadding him at his full potential.

Dear Disabled Pokemon Trainer

By now you know that Pokemon Go is a game designed to have us walking around. This is a great concept that gets people active and out of their houses, but what if you can’t walk?

A little bit of backstory here: I have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, which causes a lot of dislocations (especially when walking) and essentially means that walking long distances is not possible for me. I typically use a wheelchair when I’m going grocery shopping, but I can’t propel it on cement because the hills and extra resistance causes injury to my shoulders. This makes Pokemon Go a constant struggle to me, but I’ve picked up some quick tips.

Catch Them All!
The game is designed to have you walk around your community or town to find Pokemon located there.

  • Go for a Sunday afternoon drive. The best (and most obvious way) to catch Pokemon without walking is by driving. Of course, it should go without saying, DO NOT POKEMON GO AND DRIVE. So if you have a partner or friend willing to feed your need to catch them all, then having someone drive (slowly) around a community is your best way to snag some Pokemon. Otherwise, even just driving around like normal can sometimes yield results.
  • Wheel around with the help of a friend. If you have access to a wheelchair but struggle to push it outside (like me) the other option is to invite some friendly people to play with you, and ask that one of them push you. This can be better than the driving, cause your helper can also play with you and therefore might be more inclined to help you out.
  • Hop on a bus going nowhere. If driving or wheeling isn’t an option because of lack of help, then you could utilize public transportation. Catching pokemon on a faster moving vehicle is a bit more tricky, but not impossible, and you can even get some Pokestops if you’re quick about it. 
  • Become a Pokemon magnet. With the help of a Lure, you can turn any Pokestop into a Pokemon magnet, collecting all the creatures nearby. In my experience, this is the best way to get the Pokemon to come to you, as most Pokestops are located in an area where there are plenty of little buggers you can catch. However, you usually don’t get lures until you are further leveled up. Of course, you can always buy some at the shop. If you’re stuck at your house, however, you can use incense for the same effect, and you start off the game with 2 incenses that last 30m each.
  • Walk with breaks. If you’re like me, you probably already know this, it’s the oldest trick in the book. If you’re capable of walking short distances, with breaks, then chose an area with lots of benches or areas to sit down, and rest every time you reach a bench. This is another great time to use incense, and the plus side is that you might bump into other people playing too! I’d of course, caution that you only do this if it is not going to have long-term, negative effects on your body. 
  • Hit The Mall. I’ve noticed local malls and stores are ideal places to hunt for pokemon, especially if your mall has pokestops and gyms in it. Additionally, some stores/malls have accessibility like public wheelchairs, or motor chairs which can be of great use if you find walking difficult! If a pokestop is nearby, using a lure would be even more effective in catching your favorite pokemon. 
  • Find Those Pokestops. I’ve recently learned that **intersecting pokestops are referred to as a “farm” that are more likely to increase the rarity of pokemon that appear there, double the XP you receive when catching said pokemon, and are often hotspots for players to hang out. Find one of these intersecting Pokestops and chill out there. You’ll know you’ve found the right places because there will most likely be a hoard of other players hanging out in the same spot. 


Hatch Them All!
Hatching pokemon requires that you walk for a certain length of time, the game considers the speed at which you are going in order to ensure that you are walking.*

  • Driving is always an option. Even though the game considers your speed, there are still times that cars go slowly. So if you ever find yourself in the passenger side of a car as it goes through a parking lots or community, be sure to keep your game open so it thinks you’re walking. It might be a small addition to your total mileage, but a little bit adds up eventually.
  • Break out your wheels. This is an excellent opportunity to use that wheelchair we talked about. Same concept, if someone is pushing you, the app will still assume you are walking as your GPS picks up on the slow progression of movement. If you’re just using your chair on a routine wheel around the store, then just place your phone in a bag or pocket, with the app open (This is a great time to use Battery Saver Mode) and it will add some mileage to you as well.
  • Remember That Mall? As always, go on over to your customer service center in your local mall or check out the available wheels at Wal-Mart. There should be some public wheelchairs available at one of those places and you can wheel around the store, moving your GPS, and hatching those eggs.
  • Never Turn The Game Off. We might not think about it much, but just walking around the house can help build up some egg-hatching abilities. So another good bet is to keep the game turned on and your phone in your pocket all day. Turn off your wifi, which should make your GPS tracking less accurate, so a small movement around the house may be considered as a longer walk. If you’re worried about battery life, check out the app’s battery saver mode.
  • How Are Your Legs Feeling? I know legs can be a little bit shotty and I, personally, can’t ride a bike for much longer than I can walk, but if bike riding is one of the things you find physically possible then I’d definitely recommend riding your bike around for a bit to get some “steps” in for your hatching eggs.

Troubleshooting.

I have unstable hands and throwing Pokeballs is difficult for me.
-You could try turning of AR, which makes it easier to catch the Pokemon on your phone as it keeps the screen more steady. Other than that, asking someone to go out with you and help you throw to catch them could help.

The music/sound effects trigger my anxiety/misophonia.
-I loathe having the music running, but luckily it’s easy enough to turn off those things in the settings menu.

AR makes me nauseas/motion sick/triggers my migraines or other condition.
-You can turn off AR for gym battles and catching Pokemon, which should help with these issues.

I’m not progressing as quickly at this game as my able-bodied friends.
-Remember that everybody goes at their own pace and it’s okay if your pace is a little slower than theirs. Keep your chin up and play when you can, rest when you can’t. You are doing so much just keeping yourself alive.



Let me know if you’d like me to add anymore tips to this list! I hope you have fun playing, and stay safe! 

*There is some debate on what speed the app no longer thinks you are walking, some say 20mph, 15mph, or even 12mph. I’d say 15mph is a reasonable assumption, but I drive a little under 20mph in my community and the app has hatched some eggs that way. Just drive as slowly as possible and you should be good.

**I haven’t been able to find any articles that clarify what “intersecting Pokestops” mean, but there is an area in my town with 3 Pokestops in the same park (they create a triangular shape), and you can sit down and be able to reach all 3 of them at the same time. A large group of people have set up camp there, with round-the-clock snacks, music, and even hammocks. There are also constant lures on all 3 pokestops. You’re going to want to look for a place like that.

#131-Lapras, The Transport Pokemon ***By Request for jacob-padraig***


Lapras is a Pokemon that lives in the oceans. Lapras usually roam around in herds, and are extremely intelligent. They are quite rare, even in their normal habitat location.

There are two kinds of Lapras, each living in separate biomes. One is a tropical Lapras, which has lighter skin, and has stronger water type attacks, along with less fat. Then there are Lapras that live in more Northern areas, and have more fat, stronger Ice attacks, and darker skin.

In other news, my brothers bought me Pokemon Y for Christmas

And I just….really like it.

On top of just all the normal bad ass game play, and new graphics, and excellent trade systems, and interesting locations, and new transport modes, and pretty pokemon, and wild Eevees and everything else that makes this game awesome:

The NPCs are fan-tastic. Like, A+ character designs. 

There are SO many PoC* (It makes more sense to say dark-skinned here, actually.) Trainers, way more that previous Pokemon games. Plus YOUR character being customizable (including skin tone) is just a really nice step in the right direction for Pokemon.

Here’s just a few of the trainer classes:

And your best friend Shauna, who is an NPC:

And then player character customization:

There’s still the problematic gender binary stuff and, at least to my knowledge so far, the game is still super heteronormative. So there’s places for improvement as far as diversity goes. But a step in the right direction.

Junici Masuda, member of the GameFreak Board of Directors, released via his twitter feed an audio statement on the international release of two titles in the Pokemon Series. Numerous enraged threats, some of which were even threatening, caused a brief hiatus from twitter. These threats were all centered around the delayed international release of the Nintendo 3DS Applications Pokemon Bank and Pokemon Transporter. To calm these threats, Masuda explains the reasoning behind the delay and hopes to calm these angered fans. [Full Video]
