Pinned toot

Since I don't have much to talk about here during the winter, I'm thinking about making this the instance where I talk about workout stuff.

Basically I started working out casually last January, not as a new-years thing, but because I was in physical therapy the month before. I messed up my neck/shoulders from drawing too much without stretching properly, but also looking down at my phone too much (work can get slow sometimes, lol).

Decided to make a new one of these to pin that actually has my code in text to copy/paste

Hi! Decided to make an account on this instance for my Pokemon Go posts, since I still casually play when the weather is nice enough to go biking.

Thought I'd include some of my art - a couple pics of my OC right around when the original sun/moon launched, a cute Halloween thing, and magmar just chilling. (My main/art account is @SunScales)

I'll probably mostly talk about Pokemon Go but may also boost some of my pokeart over here too.

I appreciate that even though swinub is a ways back he's still pretty easy to hit with a ball

And once spring is back I'll do a better job of returning the favor πŸ˜‰β€‹

Maybe NEXT community day it won't be below freezing and there won't be snow on the ground, haha πŸ˜”β€‹

I'm glad gifts are a thing because I wouldn't be able to do any winter community days without them, so a big thank you to my PoGo friends πŸ˜Šβ€‹

... Oh. I've drawn torracat before. I forgot.

Here he is with my OC Terry, I drew this shortly after OG moon was released

I haven't had too much of a chance to play Fitness Boxing yet, so I only played it for the second time last night

And I am SO sore, and in different spots from where I'm usually sore from workouts, so I guess it exercises stuff I don't normally work, haha

But I'm pushing my regular sunday workout back to Tuesday because of it πŸ˜…β€‹

I'd heard before that lunatone only comes out at night, so I'm glad to see that's not true.

I don't normally buy the fitness type games but decided to give this one a shot since I'm trying to be better to my body now, and I'm really glad this had a free trial version so I could see if I liked it first

So the Switch has a new game called Fitness Boxing and I might love it, lol

I just played the free trial and then decided to buy it after

I've been wanting a fun cardio thing to do at home for the middle of the week and this is a good fit for me

Well, no shinies! The last time I had to stay home for community day I was able to get one, but only one, so I wasn't super hopeful for today.

That's okay, maybe I'll get one in the future βœ¨β€‹

I'm going to keep my ball plus going so it'll just alert me to when a pokemon spawns - auto catch if it's not totodile, and catch when it is.

but today is a good day to work on stuff.

... yeah, that's not happening.

happy totodile day. :totodile: ❄️

So apparently it's going to snow TONIGHT, so I should know pretty quick tomorrow how much we'll have and whether or not I'll want to deal with it.

considering just parking at the park over here between the two pokestops, since it's not far so I can quit anytime and not have to drive half across town back home.

It feels like it's been eight years since the last community day

I want shiny totodile but now the forecast says it's going to snow on Saturday πŸ˜₯

I was eating lunch and saw it spawn so I ran out on my lunch, lol

And!!! there was a donphan raid down the street so I finally got one!!! :donphan:

However, it also still has all the same pairing problems my Go Plus has. It took me 30 minutes to pair the first time, 10 to pair the second time, and now it takes me at least a few attempts to get it paired.

The Go Plus tends to have days where it just refuses to pair, but they're fairly rare, and it will mostly pair right away now. I'm hoping the Pokeball will end up falling into that pattern also.

I'm not sure if this is an issue just with my phone. I know people in the FB group also tend to have problems pairing their Go Plus. I was hoping the new device would work better, but clearly that was too much to ask, haha.

But I also DO have a PoGo thing to report

I got the Pokeball Plus to use for Pokemon Go. I already have the Go Plus but I'd heard a lot of good things about this from a handful of people, so wanted to try it.

Lots of people were saying it ignores the speed limits the Go Plus has, where if you're driving too fast it won't get the stop. I haven't found this to be true, though... its success rate seems to be the same. However, it does spin them automatically, so I don't have to think about it while driving. And since it's easy to not hit the button fast enough to have a chance to get the stop, this will guaranteed have a higher success rate.
