Axew hit best buddies over the weekend while I was visiting my parents. Still got a lot of walking to do, though! The distance counter appears to be somewhat glitched - it says 334 km, but I've only gotten 54 Axew candy (270 km). 70 more candy to go. I haven't decided if I'm going to walk the whole way, or drop some rare candy and move on to Sandile/Espurr.
