It’s been nearly two weeks since I started carrying a pokéwalker around with me, and I think I’ve been doing a better job at forcing myself out of the house, taking longer routes and exploring this town I’ve lived in for 9 months. I’m now at the point where I need over 2000 steps per level, and while I’m averaging about 5000 steps a day, this is the part that I’m most worried about. If Snorlax isn’t levelling every time I connect to the DS, will that kill my interest? We’ll see. If you fancy seeing the stats so far, I’m keeping a Google Doc updated. It’s also pinned on my Twitter if you want to keep an eye on it and hurl abuse/encouragement my way.
Cool things I’ve found out because of Snorlax:
- Toys “R” Us continues to have a shit amiibo selection.
- Boonies Tesco has an amazing world foods aisle and I might just go there from now on.
- Finding a thing on a map and walking to it is kind of fun.
- Carrying my DS with me while Snorlax was low-levelled was sensible as it made the best use of my steps.
