As a parent now, I've experienced a whole new level of love and responsibility. My two wonderful kids bring endless joy and a sense of purpose to my life. In the digital realm, I found my passion - gaming. Whether I'm conquering the world of Apex Legends or embarking on adventures in Pokemon Go, gaming fuels my sense of adventure and competition. Beyond the virtual world, I discovered the exhilaration of CrossFit. The challenging workouts, camaraderie with fellow fitness enthusiasts, and constant drive to push my limits have become an integral part of my life. Balancing family time, gaming, and CrossFit has been a journey of self-discovery. Each passion complements the other, bringing fulfillment and joy to my daily routine.


  1. Why is there no token for Giovani after defeating Sierra, Arlo, and Cliff in the month of June 2020?

  2. My son did Giovanni this morning and it is Suicune not Entei, all the above information is mostly incorrect.

  3. I encountered dugtrio as well while encountering Giovanni in a balloon raid. Persian was not as super charged either as I was able to beat Persian and dugtrio with Haryama. Leaving just suicune for last.

  4. I just fought against Giovanni and I got the following lineup: 1st Persian, 2nd Dugtrio, 3rd Suicune and ending up with a Suicune catch.
    Good luck to everyone~

  5. My fought against Giovanni today (07-10-2020) the lineup was: 1st Persian (i used Terrakion); 2nd Nidoking (i used Rhyperior) then Suicune (Exxegutor). I captured Suicune . Good luck everyone! 🙂

  6. I’m level 38 and I can not beat him. Tried so many combos. lol I may take a break or the phone will be smashed!!
