Pokemon Go Adventure at Epic 2018 - Prepare your backpacks!
Hey, Hey, You, You, I don't like your Mobile Game, No, Way, No, Way, think you need a new one!
TL;DR If you want to get the most out of participating in the Pokemon Go Adventure at Epic 2018 and you don't have an account yet, start one now so you're not having to learn while others adventure.
Hello Friends, Fellow Trainers, Icrontians!
I, Trainer B0bbyDigi, will be hosting a Pokemon Go Adventure at Epic 2018. We'll be traveling to some hot spots to play Pokemon Go for a couple hours. Activities may include (but will not be limited to) hunting rare Pokemon, battling gyms, and raiding. I will be available for Q&A throughout the adventure (Though to be blunt, I am always open to talking about PoGo). I will put together some suggestions for those that may want to put a little money (~$5-$20) towards their adventure but these will all be completely optional and will not be required to participate in the bulk of the adventure. (Recommendation bellow)
If you already have a trainer account above level 5, you're all set. If not, I suggest going to your app store and installing Pokemon Go. When you have some free time, start it up and go through the introductory process. You'll setup your avatar and catch your first Pokemon. From there if you spin stops and catch Pokemon on a regular basis (minimum 1 spin and 1 catch per day for streak bonuses) you'll easily be at a level to enjoy the adventure by the time Epic rolls around.
When you reach level 5, you will select your team. If you want to base your selection off of mine (to either join or be against), I am team Valor. None of the teams have any advantage or disadvantage over any other team globally. If you commonly play with other players, I believe the most benefits come from being on the same team as the others. For the Epic Adventure, this will only slightly come into play.
If you have any questions about playing and leveling up, I would be ecstatic to talk about that with you. Reply here or hit me up in the Pokemon Go Thread or on the Pokemon Go Discord channel.
The Gym Rework dropped during Epic last year (Sound familiar cough TF2 cough)and we had an impromptu Pokemon Adventure. There is even more content in the game now. This Pokemon Adventure is going to be... Epic!
Edit: Recommended purchase for Trainers going on the adventure. The current Ultra Box has some good stuff. This is not required to participate but will allow for some nice buffs.
This can be purchased for $13 in Pokecoins ($9.99 + $0.99x3) but the $20 pack is a better deal on coins and after the Ultra Box would leave you 1000 extra for other stuff.
