I had the day off. I had plans fall through for the day. I recently figured out how to make the AR camera work again in the Pokémon GO app. (Turns out, it needs permissions to store files. Derp.)

So I went to the Tualatin Hills Nature Park, a place with a staggering amount of Pokéstops all along one pleasant set of hiking paths. Last time we visited there were a whole gaggle of Ghastly… not so much, this time. Not a single one, actually. But I found a few other things to catch, such as this smarmy little electric rat:

The active event provides opportunities to, among other things, catch a Pikachu in shades. Who am I to turn down more electric rat variants, eh?

Over the course of a couple hours I had some fun with the AR camera:

And so forth.

I racked up a nice collection of gifts for friends as well. It’ll be nice to send gifts from places other than my usual daily commute, at least. Oh, and… I completed the special research tasks for A Mythical Discovery. All of them.

Yes, that means I have a Mew now. Boy howdy was catching that little twerp a pain in the backside. I didn’t know it was part Predator! It goes mostly-invisible (and you’re forced into AR mode) which makes for a helluva time when you’re out in bright sunshine.

Anyway. My day started kinda lousy, but walking it off (and playing mobile video games) helped turn it around. Huzzah.
