Way back in September of 2016, I started walking my Charizard buddy MacArthur in Pokemon Go.
A month (and 75 km) later, I’d evolved a different Charizard into this:
I specified that this was a different Charizard, because I like my little buddy MacArthur. He was my starter Pokemon. Oh, sure, I’d have evolved him if I never found another one, but I did (and it was stronger) so I evolved that one. Sadly, I had to drop the game in November 2016, because my ancient iPhone 4S couldn’t hack it. Right up until January 2017, when I got a new(er) phone and MacArthur and I got back to work!
Guess what? We did it! My Charmelion is now a Charmander!
What now? Well, because my son really wants me to get a Raichu, it’s time to take my Pikachu J.J. out walking.
23 more kilometers should do the trick. Pikachus are easier to mature than Charizards.
