The Last Few Pokemon Left to Catch in My Pokemon Go Pokedex

Shortly after beginning my Pokemon Go journey, I declared to myself that I wanted to catch ’em all, within reason. I wanted to catch all of the Gen 1 North American launch pokemon. Just over two months after the game’s release, I’m actually pretty close. Here’s what’s left, my plan for attacking the rest of them, and what I’ve learned as I went through this process.

Pokemon Go Player’s Guide to Toronto: Nathan Phillips Square

Attracting nearly 1.5 million visitors every year, Nathan Phillips Square is Canada’s largest city square. As a tourist, you’ll want to come by and see our unique city hall building to the north, which was actually featured in the movie Resident Evil: Apocalypse. Getting your picture in front of the now-iconic Toronto sign should also be in your list of to-dos. If you’re there in the winter, bring a pair of skates, as the pond is frozen over for skating.

As a Pokemon Go player, it’s also a solid, and quite possibly underrated, place to visit.

Lost Cities on iPhone Review

Lost Cities on iOS is the adaptation of the Lost Cities physical card game. In it, two players compete to create the best routes to five different ancient civilizations by playing numbered cards in ascending order. In short, it’s like an awesome version of head-to-head Solitaire that I’m completely smitten by.

Ports of board games to mobile devices have generally gotten better over time, though there are still no shortage of duds out there. Going into this, I would have been devastated if this port of a game I adored sucked. Does Lost Cities successfully make the jump?

Pokemon Go Player’s Guide to Toronto: Jack Layton Ferry Terminal

Pokemon Go Jack Layton Ferry TerminalWhen it comes to the most talked-about Pokemon Go hot-spots in Toronto, nothing will ever beat the Jack Layton Ferry Terminal. Located at the south end of the city, it quickly developed a reputation for being the best place to catch pokemon thanks to its tightly-packed PokeStops. During its peak, thousands of players from across the Greater Toronto Area would make the pilgrimage to the promise land in hopes of hauling back a king’s ransom.

Unfortunately, the hype got too big, causing real problems with the people who showed up to actually use the ferry. A few weeks ago, a number of PokeStops were removed and the crowds dissipated. Should you cancel your travel plans now? Not necessarily.
