Did playing Pokémon Go cause me to memorize the Pokémon type chart?

Pokémon Go has been my first Pokémon game, one in which I wasn’t just watching others play. Today I realized Pokémon Go has caused me to actually seriously absorb and remember type effectivenesses in Pokémon, so I decided to set off to test myself to see how well I could produce the Pokémon type chart from memory.


I made 13 errors among the 18²=324 cells of the chart. You can also notice:

  1. my failure to properly count to 18 when making horizontal rows, and
  2. my subsequent attempt to replicate the order of the types in canonical order, at one point jumping to the end and moving backwards, and eventually resolving the confusion about the extra row.

I got both the row and the column completely correct for Normal, Fighting, Fire, Water, Ice, and Dragon. I made errors in both the row and the column for Bug, Ghost, and Psychic.


Pokémon Go: a 0xGG Journey to Level 40

This past February 20 at 1228 Eastern Time, I spun the MIT SIPB PokéStop (the first PokéStop I spun in Pokémon Go) to reach 20000025 XP, thus ending a 543-day journey to Level 40. During this journey, I walked 2690.1 km (as logged by Pokémon Go), caught 36291 Pokémon, won 11487 battles, and obtained the gold gym badge at 13 gyms.



Here’s what the top of my Pokémon page looked like:


Here’s what the top of my Gyms page looked like:


This will be a post saturated with charts of relevant statistics, but unlike my previous posts partway along this Pokémon Go adventure, I will first talk a bit about my goals in this Pokémon Go journey, and thoughts and decisions along the way.

Since this post is long, I will give each section a short string that could be used to navigate to the section using Ctrl+f.

III. All the Stats [alts]

I. My Goals and Play Style [gaps]

These were my decisions as to how I’d play Pokémon Go.

  1. Play against the stereotype of Team Instinct as the team that just merrily hatches eggs and doesn’t bother to fight for gym territory; help spread a presence of Team Instinct in gyms. [pats]
  2. Spend $0.00 on the game. [0x$$]
  3. Play at not just a community-accepted standard of ethics, but Niantic’s prescribed standard of ethics; play such as to approximate the experience of an actual Pokémon trainer. [nomap]
  4. Treat my Pokémon as well as I could, as far as possible while still participating in the essentials of Pokémon. [<3<3]
  5. Record ample statistics along the way such that eventually when I reach Level 40, this post would be possible. [++++]

Here’s some elaborations on these.

1. Play against the stereotype of Team Instinct as the team that just merrily hatches eggs and doesn’t bother to fight for gym territory; help spread a presence of Team Instinct in gyms. [pats]

This one’s probably sufficiently self-contained and self-explanatory.

2. Spend $0.00 on the game. [0x$$]

In the spirit of zero-cost gaming, I didn’t spend money towards Pokémon Go that I wouldn’t have wanted to if Pokémon Go did not exist. I decided that that means:

  • I never purchase in-game items with real money. All Pokécoins I ever had I earn through in-game mechanisms.
  • I never purchase a GoPlus.
  • I never purchase a battery pack, as I wouldn’t have spent money on that if I didn’t play Pokémon Go.
  • I don’t increase my data plan from my original 1 GB/month plan I had before starting to play Pokémon Go, and that 1 GB was to be shared with Ingress, as well as the non-gaming functions I perform on my phone.

It turned out that over 50% of my data usage (and over 75% of my battery usage) in many months was Pokémon Go, even when including Ingress. Of course, even though I never purchased a battery pack, I’ve gotten offered one several times; I decided if I actually get offered one I’ll allow myself to use one. Thanks, all you kind trainers.

Until the new gym system, I consistently had barely any Pokécoins, due to the Mystic dominance of my play area. The new system was a great relief for me, after which I consistently earned the ceiling of 50 Pokécoins nearly every day. To be frugal with Pokécoins, I only ever bought the following items:

  • Premium Raid Pass
  • Lucky Egg
  • 8x Lucky Egg
  • 25x Lucky Egg
  • Bag Upgrade
  • Pokémon Storage Upgrade

I prioritized purchasing Pokémon Storage Upgrade for quite a while (see item 4 [<3<3]), and only made my first Bag Upgrade purchase at Level 38. I never spent any Pokécoins on style, although now that I’m Level 40, I plan on eventually purchasing some outfit components. In total, I only ever purchased about 5 Premium Raid Passes.

Luckily, I live in an urban area. Without this, I may have needed to spend Pokécoins on Poké Balls, and I shudder at that thought. I’m pretty sure in such a world my $0.00 run to Level 40 would have been severely hampered, in more ways than one.

Also luckily, as I’ve been a busy MIT student anyway, most of my playing occurred walking from place to place within MIT’s campus, which allowed me to utilize MIT’s WiFi networks instead of data, as much as it was tempting to use the more reliable option. Playing Pokémon Go on campus mainly on WiFi has helped me discover the locations of all the WiFi holes on campus. For instance, there’s a lot of holes around the Cosmic Ray Chandeliers gym. Along with the high drift around that gym, it makes playing there often quite frustrating. Also, Building 36 is nearly always a pain to play while walking through, due to the different main WiFi network, since RLE isn’t happy using the main MIT WiFi network for some reason.

Four Level-Ups in Ingress

I reached Level 15 in Ingress yesterday. As I’ve mentioned before, Ingress is wonderful with the comprehensiveness of the set of statistics they present in profile, which means that where I would usually be processing quite some statistics, Ingress has done that for me, and I just have to take profile-screenshots.

Here are screenshots of my profiles upon my last four level-ups. Yes, I reached the badge requirement for Level 12 after I reached the experience requirement for Level 13.

I liked to sit on a radiator unit in the W20-575 cluster when battling The Alchemist gym in Pokémon Go. A few times ago, someone who was working on one of the computers told me they wish I could move, because my sitting on the radiator seems to cause it to make substantially louder noises, and that was distracting to him. So I went and sat on a different radiator unit that didn’t react as such.

Since then, I’ve noticed each time I sat on that particular radiator unit that it does in fact react to my sitting with louder noises each time. And even if there wasn’t someone that told me the noises bothered them, I moved. Somehow, despite the elevated noises never bothering me before someone told me (I don’t remember the noises back then, but I’m pretty sure it’s not that the radiator just happened to start consistently becoming noisier upon my sitting the one time someone happened to be bothered by it), I definitely couldn’t help but notice them afterwards, and feel that I should do something to fix the problem, even if no one complained.

Rethinking the situation, I’m actually not sure if why I consistently move afterwards is because the noise newly bothers me or if I feel the need to in-advance cater to a particular type of people who would be bothered by the noises. They both feel like they could be reasons I did the such, but one could easily get faint feelings of afterwards-justifications for actions, and I feel these might fall into this category.

Six Months (Actually) on reddit

This past June 04, I finally started using reddit.

That’s not true. I’ve lurked on reddit (I think I’ll use the lowercase form since that’s what the site uses; I also like it this way) for definitely at least a couple years before that, but this wasn’t even “regularly-checking” lurking; I just checked reddit when I got really bored or otherwise was reminded of something being on reddit. Okay, so this past June 04 was the first time I started posting on reddit.

That’s not true either. This reddit account I’m currently speaking of wasn’t my first reddit account; I made one five months earlier than I made this one, which I used exclusively to post on subreddits relating to various games, at first just generals.io. In fact, come to think about it, generals.io really gets credit for being what caused me to actually start posting to reddit. It’s really weird what major discussion-facilitating sites there are that I start using because of games: reddit due to generals.io, Twitter due to minesweeper. (Of course, my start with reddit from generals.io went far, far smoother than my start with Twitter from minesweeper went, as many of you know.)

But in any case, I specifically did not wander off gaming-related subreddits with that account, and before this account, I really didn’t browse reddit much. This past June 04, I actually started using reddit, in the sense of freely wandering the site.

The following are my thoughts from these first six months.

I. Thoughts on the General reddit Community

I’m just going to start with saying that reddit has by far the most civil comments section that I’ve seen of an online community.

There will, as is really necessary online, occasionally be someone quite terribly grating and hyperbolically antagonistic, but even in these cases they usually seem like they’re sincerely representing their anger rather than just throwing clearly frivolous flames.

I have been rather surprised by how eerily normal my opinions often are in the reddit community. As someone who day-to-day notices my viewpoints and thoughts way off-sync to that of most people, I have to wonder how it manages to not seem so way off in what is clearly a pretty large mass of people. I absolutely would not have expected, for instance, that my opinions of the significance of Japanese war crimes of World War II was something that earned me net upvotes. Time and time again, I wish to speak my mind on something that I would have thought was a very disliked opinion, but find it’s a sentiment towards which reddit at large approves. Where are these people in real life?

In either case, I really like being able to see at what karma an opinion comment ends up to have some sort of a gauge as to how it fares and how accepted it is in some large group of people, even if it may not be the best approximation for the real life scenario.

A further interesting twist on this: I have, several times, made a comment that got greatly downvoted over the daytime (say, to below -10), and then massively upvoted over the nighttime (say, to above 20). It seems I’m significantly more in agreement with people who reddit (or at least visit the relevant subreddits) between 0200 and 0800 Eastern time. Now I have to wonder whether these are people in America redditing late-night or people elsewhere in the globe redditing during the day.

I really like the bot culture on reddit. I kept a list of reddit accounts I really like the existence of, and many on the list are bots. The bots deployed on reddit span a really great deal of usefulness and a spectrum of flavors of bot humor.

I saw a thread a while back (unfortunately I don’t remember which thread it was) where reddit administrators were openly having a conflict with each other; I can see why some may consider this to look unprofessional, but I really like this. I see it as a willingness to be frank about what internal conversations can be like. I interpret it as a refusal to sugarcoat a situation as nicer than it is and owning up to the fact that sometimes discussions don’t go well. It inspires confidence in an honest presentation and an open nature to a site.

Overall, there are lots of aspects I really appreciate about reddit. I’ll touch a bit on the flipside, though.

Pokémon Go: Stats Upon Level 38

This post is roughly in the format of and an extension of my Level 36 stats post from three months ago. This time, however, I’m including a few more charts.

At 2002 Eastern Time on 10.03, I caught a Rattata to reach 12000138 XP, thus leveling up to Level 38.

I started playing Pokémon Go on August 26 last year. Using this baseline, this is when my level-ups occurred:

Day 87: Level 29
Day 92: Level 30
Day 102: Level 31
Day 138: Level 32
Day 181: Level 33
Day 235: Level 34
Day 298: Level 35
Day 330: Level 36
Day 351: Level 37
Day 403: Level 38

My buddy is currently an Ampharos, which I have walked with for 41.9 km (and who was a Mareep when I started walking with it). I also walked with a Togepi for 111.0 km before this, and after I stopped walking with my prior Tyranitar, who I walked with for a total of 942.1 km.

(Parentheticals in this section show change from last update, at the Level 36 level-up. For comparison, the XP change from the previous update is +60.0%, and the increase in time under the new gym system since last update is +328.1%.)

Southern Cambridge: An Ingress Territories Map

I made an attempt at depicting the southern half of Cambridge, MA in a map showing territorial control in Ingress, pointing out areas well controlled by one faction, like Cambridgeport (an Enlightened stronghold) and West MIT (a Resistance stronghold), also highlighting fronts and battlegrounds where control frequently shifts and action is relatively fast.


Well, in my head it was a lot cooler than it turned out. Perhaps with symbols crafted with more nuance this could look more like a battle map.
