Arkbuster the shiny Sharpedo, best buddy #9. I wanted to get a sweet night shot of him, but AR+ refused to cooperate, so instead here's a fall foliage snapshot I took earlier today. Sharpedo looks good anytime, anywhere.

Belated alt update: mac and bees the Ninjask is my latest best buddy. Also I've started walking Klink which is a megaproject (108 candy to evolve, i.e. 540 km, minus any candy I happen to get from raids). What's a good name for a Klink?

We interrupt our regularly scheduled buddy programming to bring you MEGA BEEDRILL (Niantic is paying me research funds for this post)

Community Day buddy. Overall, the 2020 Community Day roster has been disappointing, featuring a bunch of common spawns (Weedle, Seedot, Magikarp), boring shinies (Seedot, Gastly), and reruns (Charmander next month). I'm not expecting any top-tier pokemon during a pandemic, but Niantic is really scra...

Meanwhile, best buddy #3 on my alt: Polyglot the Hydreigon. He's also best buds with Meracydia. At 326 km walked, he's at the top of my alt's fitness club...for now.

A day later, Cabeswater is best buddy #8. Photogenic boyo, wish I'd taken more pics of him when visiting my parents last month. Instead here's a pic of his little sister checking out Dad's prized peach tree. Haven't decided who to walk next. Some possibilities: Baelsar's Wall the Bastiodon; Midgar ...

Chinatsu the Weavile is best buddy #7! She's named after a Baldr Sky character that I ended up not liking very much, but by the time I realized that fact, the name had stuck and my Weavile wouldn't answer to anything else.

Didn't get lucky with spawns during the Unova event, so I'm walking Swadloon for pokedex completion. 17 km down, 57 to go.

Over the weekend, Mr. Ogodobo the Scrafty hit best buddy on my alt! Wonder if it's worth training up a Scrafty for little league pvp. (Though I'd probably want a different one, since Mr. Ogodobo has pretty low IVs...)

On a whim, I decided to make Cabeswater, my shiny Latios, my next buddy project. I like how he never comes down, he just chills out in the sky flying circles around Team Rocket balloons.

Lately I've been switching between a couple buddies:
- ice kachang the Galarian Darumaka [161 km] - I have 80+ candy, more than enough to evolve, but I'm saving up in case Zen Darmanitan gets released.

- Archeops [229 km] - Originally, I was walking this guy to evolve a second Archeops to send to...

Meanwhile, best buddy #1 on my alt: Jackanape the Riolu. Still a Riolu because I evolved one with better IVs. I didn't mean to best buddy two pokemon of the same line; it just kinda happened.

Einkorn the Conkeldurr finally evolved after walking 408 km. Evolved him yesterday, got best buddy status today. No idea who to make my next buddy, since I don't yet have Rufflet or Axew.

Meracydia the Hydreigon. (Originally I was gonna wait for a Deino Community Day for the special move, but if I did that, what would be the point of walking all those miles? So I just evolved now.)

Eli Ever the Luxray, best buddy #3! (Pictured alongside Victor Vale, his eternal nemesis, who is too cool to be my buddy) I was feeding him berries and he jumped off the bed, and I was like "where you going dude" and then he jumped back up with the best buddy badge.

Einkorn the Timburr, our latest fitness club member. (Fitness club memberships are awarded to all pokemon who have walked 100+ km. Einkorn is at 214 km and counting.) He's got 100% IVs, which honestly makes him a huge white elephant—I can't do a trade evo, I have to farm the full 250 candy. But now ...

Meracydia the Deino making a new friend on the last day before we started sheltering in place. A perfect day for my last day outside.
