So here I am this past weekend listening to the news on television about this Pokemon Go craze. I’m just shaking my head about some of the stupid things that people are ending up doing just to catch a Pokemon. I don’t get it. I really don’t. I overheard mom/dad talking about the craze and they were just shaking their heads too.
So knowing that mom/dad thought it was crazy, I acted like any other kid in America. I had to try it myself – snorts. So mom put me to bed last night. While she and dad were getting ready for bed, I downloaded the Pokemon Go app to my iPad. Now this is where I have my first issue with Pokemon. Why don’t you have animal players? Why do you have to have either boy or girl. Shame on you.
I finally settled with a boy and of course named myself BaconPigLove. What else would I name myself, right? So then I listened at my door intently waiting for mom/dad to go to bed. In the meantime, I looked around my room. Nope – Pokemon Monster Free just like I like it. I snorted – stupid game.
Then I heard mom/dad walk down the hall – awesome. Now was the time for me to make my move. I silently pushed open my bedroom door and went down the hall holding my iPad. Now I was so intent on getting to the doggy door that I didn’t see the stupid monster before I got right on top of him. This stupid Rattata appeared out of nowhere. And trust me friends, it’s just like it sounds – a stupid rat of some sorts that’s been eating too many science projects left in the fridge for too long. I didn’t know whether to squeal or take a snort or what. So I flung this ball at it and it said I captured it. Thank goodness because that thing could have carried Houdini off. And speaking of which, I was trying to be quiet so I wouldn’t wake him up so he would yip-yap and give me away.
I got to the doggy door and scooted through… okay okay – I wedged my pudgy piggy butt through the door. And then there I was in my magical backyard. Surely, nothing would be found in my magical backyard. I started walking around holding my iPad up looking for these supposed monsters. Then I saw this thing happened on my iPad like something was jumping in a bunch of leaves. It was weird so of course I carried on towards it. Slowly I tiptoed on my hooves and then this stupid bird like thing jumped out at me. I think it said it’s name was Pidgey. Trust me. That’s not what I called it. I caught it with my ball and scored some points.
By this time, I was deep in the woods. Did I mention all by myself? Then I saw the leaves moving again on my iPad. This time it was further back in the woods near the tree line. So again I tiptoed down the woods silent like the hunter I am – quit laughing. I turned the corner and jumped out to get what only God knows was next. That’s when this kid yelled louder than I was squealing. OMP! I peed on myself right there in *my* backyard… in *MY* woods and this kid was back there hunter Pokemon too. He yelled pig and I yelled kid and we both took off running in opposite directions. Trust me it was so much easier getting back into the house through the doggy door.
I’m never going Pokemon hunting again…ever.

the mama had not clue what the people talk about (imagine that)… fortunately a furiend told her that you can’t win a million there, no convertible nor ice cream… and NO! shoes by Jimmy Chew… and so the whole thing is furgotten for the mama…

Brother – she has it right. There is nothing to be found here. Nope not at all. And future Pokemon hunters – please stay out of my magical backyard. You may bother my bigfoot. Snorts! XOXO – Bacon

I never got Pokeman back in the 90’s and certainly don’t get it now either. We’ve been nearly run over by dumb, clueless people with their heads in their phones walking straight into us without looking. Argh!

Oh yes. They are not following the first rule – be aware of your surroundings! Mom has fussed about them here as well. We will all be glad when it dies down. XOXO – Bacon

What is that? Mom and dad said that “no idea”. They are old, maybe they don’t understand, but I think they just are not interested.
So the best thing is what the Mama of Easy did, and all the others.

Bacon we have it too and what fun! Special aussie pokemons we catch at the creek. You had quite an adventure! ❤

I sure did Auntie Sharon… but don’t tell mom I went outside by myself at dark okay. That’s just our little secret. XOXO – Bacon

You can count on me! Also check out public areas near you that offer level ups. If you spin the disc that comes up you will get an egg of your own. 😄

Squeals! Thanks for the tip. OMP – I can’t wait to go out again. Maybe daddy can take me for a walk. I can be his seeing eye pig. You think that would work? XOXO – Bacon

I recommend taking Mom along too. 😀
07/21/2016 at 9:21 am
Yeah. That might be a good idea. She doesn’t like me going out at night and I’m not suppose to. I won’t go out again without her. Pig’s honor XOXO – Bacon

Mom and I know about this craze from listening to NPR on the radio as we are driving to work. It’s crazy all right!
07/20/2016 at 9:34 am
YES! I don’t get it. It was fun but scary cause it was night and I was outside by myself which I’m not suppose to do. But, I don’t know. I have mixed feelings about it. XOXO – Bacon

We heard about it but after reading this post we went to Pokemon to watch a video to “explain” it. Huh? We’ll pass. Not that we have a cell phone to play with. But if we did, we’d avoid the app.

Exactly! Mom is usually game for anything but even she says no. People are going crazy looking for these little monster thingies. It’s too crazy! XOXO – Bacon
P.S. Stay cool sweet friend. It has been so hot here.
