Fucking Abra

I’d say overall, today was a good day in the Pokemon catching world. I caught several Pokemon that went right in my dex and several more that just need to be evolved once or twice. The only problem areas were Mankey and Abra. Mankey is a hidden Pokemon meaning I have to walk around the zone he’s in until a bush shakes then walk over to said bush and see if it’s Mankey. Sounds easy right? Accept his area is surrounded by ledges that when you fall off them you have to get on your bike and hope back up. Pile that on top of blowing through 15 or so super repels and him just not ever showing the fuck up made it a long process. Finally, after about 20 mins and 40 mother fuckers, I caught one. Shortly after, with the help of the Dexnav a second one was mine as well for the evolved form.

 Then we have Abra, the asshole Pokemon. What makes him so hard you might ask? Well, Abra has this move called teleport that lets him escape any battle. I found that out after I made my way down this dark maze/cave (needed a Pokemon with flash) to the section where he roams. Pretty much as soon as you hit Abra he gets the fuck out of there. He is also a hidden Pokemon, so I have to actively seek him out not just stumble across him in the dark. If you have a Pokemon with the move Mean Look it keeps Pokemon from fleeing, and I have one, in my Pokebank, not helping me at all. So I was left with two options. One: go all the way back out of the cave and get that Pokemon. Two: as soon as I start the battle chuck a Pokeball and pray. I went with option two and after several minutes of chasing in the dark, I found another Abra. I threw the Pokeball and it caught him on the first attempt. Little did I know how lucky that was because for the next 25 minutes that’s all I did. Run into Abra, throw ball, he’d teleport. finally, I bit the bullet and went out to the cave to get my Pokemon with Mean Look. Shortly after the second Abra was mine and I could leave that cave.

As an added bonus when I was looking for the Pokemon with Mean Look I found an Ekans that I needed to complete my first box of 30.
