Whose boots were made for walking?

Which of your buddies has the most km under their feet / paws / wings / flippers, and how much distance have the two of you covered together? I have a feeling Dos is going to have Blissey or Larvy with 80,000 km traveled.

This little homeslice has gone almost 200km, or from my house to Bastrop.

Well, collectively between all my Chansey buddies (some of whom are now Blisseys), I’ve racked up almost 900 km.  That doesn’t go very far in terms of candy, though.  I still don’t have a fully powered up Blissey… but I do have 5 Blisseys, which I deemed was more important for the gym scene.  Hatches are really the way to go for easy candies, and I’ve been reasonably lucky in that department compared to others.  I’ve also racked up quite a few Snorlax miles, which was a good choice since I don’t run into them in the wild very much (but I’ve never acquired a good IV Snorlax, so my power-ups aren’t all that impressive and can’t sit in gyms any longer), and a bunch of Lapras miles.  My latest Chansey buddy has 425 miles on it.  I’m not sure if that is my highest total for a single pokemon, or not.

I powered this guy from a little baby and he is not fully grown yet

Looking good, though!

38 km walked in the event so far, and dang, it’s hot out there!  I almost hope it does rain for the next couple days to give me an excuse not to go out.  I need about 100 km more during the event to fully power up this Blissey, and I’m not sure I’m going to make it in time.  I’m sure going to try, though.

I love seeing that “1 Chansey candy.” Someone has been spending it as fast as she gets it.

Of course!  I need short-term goals, and like to see progress.  The Blissey I’m working on is not quite in my top twelve yet, but should be soon.

Good work, lads and lasses. Keep those shoes worn, feet sore and buddies tired.

Just went out to a quick walk around the track. The ambulance showed up and was working on someone near the park. Hopefully, everything will be alright. The good news is that I got another candy, I know a bastard, too.

Fingers crossed for the other person, and fingers crossed for your candy stash. Also, fingers crossed for the emergency personnel – those boogers have an uneasy job.

Been reading the forums for a few months now and finally joined. Really appreciate this communities inputs and discussions. Just wanted to show this little pic of my new favorite powerhouse on my team, can’t wait to finally use him in a gym! I’m not doing it until he’s completely powered up, one more upgrade 🙂

Awesome!  Judging by km walked, you worked hard for him (edit: her) too.  He, uh, I mean she will be a real beast at the top of some gym.  (Sorry, she just seems like a “he”).  Welcome to the forum!

Trust me when I say I’ve walked my legs ragged trying to power this little guy up to where he’s at now. When gen2 dropped I hatched a latvitar on my second 10k egg, and then never got another one after that or seen one in the wild. I made her my buddy and the rest is history. This rock event was a blessing from the poke gods and I’ve been stacking on candy like crazy. Hopefully I can run into at least one larvitar in the wild, then I can finally be done and change my buddy back to my chansey haha

She is a beast, Purp! Helluva an intro to the forum. Welcome! Yes, this event has been a walker’s dream! My 10 year asked me if he could strap the phone to the back of our 1 1/2 year old dog the other day. Gotta give him credit for creativity.

I guess that’s another reason why they call them mans best friend! I walk my dog a lot, and I really do mean A LOT haha he’s my fellow Pokémon hunter, I jokingly say he helps me sniff them out. I also do a sort of a cheat, but it’s not nessessarily cheating. At my job site I’m constantly walking around, so I figured “hey, why not leave my app open in my pocket while I’m at work?” I rack up at least 10-12k a day and always keep an external battery on me to hook my phone up to when it’s running low. The funniest part of my day is telling my site monitors to hold on a min so I can step away and see what I hatch from my eggs haha
