You're probably saying "WTF Digi!? It's not even 2019 yet. What's with the Expo 2019 thread already?"
Well a couple things have lead to this:
A. We are limited to a single special trade per day in Pokemon Go. This includes any trade that includes a Pokedex entry for either party and any Legendary or Shiny whether the receiving player has that Pokedex entry or not.
B. There is an event in the coming weeks that will award double candy for transferred Pokemon. These are rare and it is unlikely to happen again before June. I have too many legendary Pokemon that I would happily turn in for 2 candy but would also be happy to hold on to them for a trade in June.
C. Trades are cheaper the higher the friendship level is between the trainers making the trade. Being Great or Best friends would be ideal, Best being the cheapest. It takes 90 days of friend interaction to get to best friends meaning at latest, some point in March 2019 will be the last point when two trainers could start the process and be Best friends by Epic.
So what i would like to do is plan out my (and others can do the same here) special trades for the 5-6 days that I will be there.
For Example @CrazyJoe has indicated he has been picking up some Carnivine to trade. Because I do not have one, I would like to trade Joe for one, but this will be a special trade so I want to focus on being Best friends with Joe by Epic and having a day where both of us will be there set aside for us to trade. I also need to know what he wants for it so I can earmark it.
I'll add more to this post as time passes but wanted to get the idea out there to start the process as needed.
I got scolded at ICOK this year for not sharing more of my 3d printing stuff (@Linc).
So here's what I'm currently working on. It's a multi-piece lightsaber model that screws together. It's original intention by the creator (not me) is to be fitted with a SFX blade, but those are super expensive (like $150 for the cheap one), and I'm not in the mood for that.
So what I'll probably do, since the innards are pretty open, is rig it up for either a high-powered green LED or go nuts and rig it up with a laser pointer. Either way, there's tons of room inside.
I still have to do some cleanup on the threads, especially the end-cap, and there's a lot of support material clogging up the ridged part of the handle, but otherwise, it has come out quite nicely. I'll probably do some sanding and painting because lightsabers should look metal (and also METAL).
