Pokémon GO Event – Zapdos

We once again had an eventful Pokémon GO weekend! This time it featured an older legendary, the electric bird Zapdos. These events are meant to be short and sweet (and rake in the money for the company). We had 3 hours to raid as many times as we could. We all got 5 free raid passes (usually one is free daily) but a majority of us bought more. We can do this by either gathering coins in game or paying…

Pokémon GO Community day – Squirtle

We headed out to Kasteel Keukenhof for another round of Pokémon GO’s community days. This time around the prize was something with an added punch. Not only was the target Pokémon shiny (a color variant of the original) it had sunglasses. Sunglasses. A Squirtle with sunglasses is a throwback to the old cartoon show from the 90s. There was a Squirtle with sunglasses. Even though they aren’t the right shape, we still had to catch them all! So the NV…

Pokémon GO Event – Articuno

Today was a special Pokémon GO event that we could not miss. It was live for one day only and for only three hours. What was so special about this event?  It was a chance to catch a Shiny Articuno. It would be the first of its kind in the game. A shiny Pokémon means the color is different. Comparable to an albino in the wild. Allow me to explain a bit of the game. There are monsters you can catch…

Pokémon GO Community day – Larvitar

Once again it’s that time of the month. Thousands of Pokémon GO players flood out into the streets to catch elusive monsters that have been available for a short time. Well it’s not that dramatic. Local residents have come to recognize the signs that a new Pokémon GO event is in effect. The area becomes quite active. People spend hours walking up and down streets with their phones to their faces. It’s strange for an outsider to see but it…

Pokémon GO Community day – Charmander

Once again the time has come for us to celebrate another Pokémon GO Community day. This time around was a bit of a challenge for us because we’re on holiday! We headed south of The Netherlands and into Belgium to a little place called Zutendaal. We’re staying at a vacation park but I’ll have a whole post about that later. Saturday was our first community day away from our usual community. We had a little panic at first but the…

Pokémon GO Community Day – Bulbasaur

I have a feeling I’ll be covering a lot more Pokémon GO in the days to come. Sander and I play every day and it’s become a big part of our lives. Not only have we become part of a dedicated group, but we’ve might have made new friends in our 30s. Say what? The totally asocial couple has finally branched out and made new friends? Well it’s not entirely the case. Sander, who is a Dutch native and quite…

Fighting back in Pokémon GO

It’s an hour away from midnight and we’re standing in a circle in the parking lot of Saint Agatha’s church. There are eleven of us sharing drinks, stories, snacks and holding phones in our hands. What are we doing out so late at night? Playing Pokémon GO. I’ve talked about playing before because Sander and I are pretty active in our community. There are three times, red, blue, and yellow. Members fight for control over real life landmarks that are gyms in game.…

Pokémon GO Safari Zone: Amstelveen

Pokémon GO has been a huge part of our lives since it launched. In the summer months we went out every evening to ride our bikes and catch some new Pokémon. When the Pokémon GO Safari events came up, we were ready and willing to do what it took to attend. It’s known that when it comes down to attending the events, luck is a huge make or break factor. When the registration opened up, Sander was able to snag…
