We’ve recently returned from a trip to the beach. I was hoping it would be a nice relaxing trip, but it was so bloody hot and humid that we were all a little miserable. The morning I ventured out for sunrise photos it had rained the night before. I wasn’t sure I’d get anything good, but I did. It was 80° when I ventured out at 5:30am. My lens fogged up, took forever to get it to defog and stay that way. And once the sun came up it felt so miserably hot and humid out that I headed back to the room, showered, and crawled back in the bed.
I’ve been playing Pokémon Go since it dropped last month. I’m a little obsessed lol. I made plans to go to the beach and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to hunt. I was right…
We stayed along the boardwalk. In that section of Ocean City there a lot of Pokémon that we just don’t have here in my neck of the woods. There are also far more Electric Type Pokémon along the boardwalk than one would assume. At night we would walk the boardwalk munching on Thrasher’s Fries, chatting, and hunting Pokémon. Here is what we happened upon in Ocean City, by type:
- Omanyte (easier found at night)
- Kabutops (I found it late one night two blocks from the beach)
- Seel (my son found two)
- Blastoise (I saw him in shadow, I didn’t try to find him)
- Doduo (Normal/Flying)
- Geodude (Rock/Ground)
- Abra (slippery little suckers)
- Jinx (Ice/Psychic)
I’m sure that there are more. I tried to limit this list to things that were rare/hard to find in my area and I didn’t list the more common suburban Pokémon. The further away from the water you get the more grass types you find just like with any other suburban area. With my new round of catches and evolutions I have caught/seen 121 out of the 148 available Pokémon here in North America. I think I was at 102 before heading to the beach. So not bad for a few days work. Ninetales is by far my favorite evolution while away; Rapidash running a close second. While Kabutops is my favorite catch.
If you are headed to Ocean City, hopefully this list will give you a little insight into what you might find.
