Our 2nd Pokémon Go Community Day was a booming success! About 40 PGoers from around Wilkes County gathered at our local Community College to enjoy a beautiful day of comradery and capturing as many Dratini as we possibly could.
We threw down Lures, ran Incense, ignited Star Pieces and kicked off some Lucky Eggs, all in the hopes of setting ourselves up for success with catching and earning that much needed Stardust.
Over the 3-hour event, players were able to earn an enormous amount of Dratini candy, enough for everyone to evolve at least one Dragonite with the special Draco Meteor move.
Players were also given the chance to catch a “shiny” version of the featured monster, with most (although, sadly not all) easily obtaining enough to add a pink Dragonair and green Dragonite to their collections.
To add even more to the excitement of the day, we ran a friendly competition to see who was the best of the best. The event became so thrillingly competitive, that even Deadpool stopped by to join in the fun. (Did you know he played Pokémon Go?)
In the end, there could only be 5 winners. 4 who came out on top and 1 who, unfortunately, had a not so great day. (Let’s face it, we all have bad days in the game).
Most Shiny Dratini Caught: Angie
Most Dragonites Evolved During the Event: Chris
Most Dratini Caught:
1st place– Jose
2nd place– Gudson
Stephanie won a consolation prize for having the most Dratini run on her, during the event.
So far, Community Day has proven to be an extremely enjoyable event, possibly one of the best ones that Niantic has created for the game yet.
Thanks to all our local PGoers who took part in the day. And, a big shout out to those who allowed us to post their pictures on our site!
We very much look forward to seeing everyone again next month and hope that between now and then we can persuade even more of our fellow players to come out and participate!
