Spark in the Park

It’s Pokemon Go Fest this weekend, and with a global pandemic going on, the normally travel-based event has gone virtual, with in-game events both free and paid. And, amusingly, downloadable papercrafts and stand-ups to print out.

The kiddo wanted to make a stand-up of Spark, the leader of Team Instinct. And we had the cardboard for it.

We actually managed to get out to a park and do a Dialga raid. We sort of went somewhere!

Pokemon in the Restaurant Business

I’ve been meaning to post this Kangaskhan at Gengis Khan Mongolian barbecue since… September? I forget exactly. Yeah, it’s a mall food court, so it’s definitely the Before Times. And it looks like the older Pokemon Go camera mode.

As for the Wynaut at ‘Y’ Not, that was a little more recent, on the way back from one of those rare outings to someplace farther away than the grocery store. But I had to stop for it.

Pokemon at the Park

A Pokemon looking at a door with a sign saying that the place is closed.

Sneasel is disappointed that the museum is closed.

A turtle-like Pokemon on a rock in a pond, near a real turtle on a concrete berm.

Turtwig has found a new friend.

(I had such a hard time trying to get it to face the right direction, which is why it’s still a little bit off. At least I didn’t need to worry about the real turtle wandering away while I set up the shot.)

A frog-like Pokemon next to a real statue of a frog.

I don’t have a clever caption for this one, but thought it was cool that I caught the Croagunk right there while trying to decide what to do with the frog statue.

Incidentally, the frog statue is a Pokestop. And so is the historical cabin in the Sneasel picture.

A spherical Pokemon with lots of protrusions next to a sign about Covid-19's ability to stay on surfaces.

I think Koffing is supposed to look like a magnified grain of dust or pollen…but it looks an awful lot like a coronavirus, too.
