We have now evolved the Pikachu and have a Santa Raichu. Looks cute.
And thanks for the tip about buddies, as we didn’t know about it. We will now have Kadabra as a buddy.
But more exciting was that while looking for our last Pikachu at Lakewood Reserve (no luck this morning) we hatched a 10km egg and got an 1100 CP Snorlax. Very pleasing, despite the southerly and rain.
