Poke Post: Pokemon hunting on the birthday

I’ve been out of the office this week, doing birthday stuff and getting plenty of rest away from the newspaper. One of the things I did for my birthday on Wednesday was spend a couple of hours playing Pokemon Go at Manito Park in Spokane.

I’ve found Pokemon in downtown Spokane on numerous bar nights and festival trips, but I hadn’t gone Pokemon hunting in Manito Park – or really thought about doing it – until my friend Jas told me about some of the Pocket Monsters she caught in the area. She also told me about a couple of hot spots in Spokane, which I plan to visit during the summer. This was also a good way to catch some Pokemon after a long, snowy winter indoors. The combination of freezing temperatures and snow covering the ground contributed to a lack of Pokemon hunting on my part.

After capturing some Pokemon in downtown Spokane, including a Cyndaquil I plan to evolve to a Quailava, I ventured to Manito Park and started hunting Omynatie near the lake. At one point I was surrounded by three of the Pokemon and I caught most of them, including Ripley here, who is my top pick to evolve into Omanyte.

There were other Pokemon in the area as well including Natu and Spinarak, which I have seen all over Cheney. A couple of other Pokemon that excited me were Giriafang, Psyduck and Dunsparce – which made me feel like Ash Ketchum except he never captured a Dunsparce.


It was a fun day and a good way to get closer to my goal of 1,000 Pokemon in 2017.

Here is a list Pokemon I found on my birthday. Most of them were ones I captured at Manito Park, but there were some I caught in downtown Spokane before and after my trip to Manito.
