The beauty of an event

What is the beauty? Well this is for those who play the numbers and are looking at the long game. I would place myself in the level up group. Although I spend more than half my time playing other styles. But if I am mass hunting, I have to optimize. By this I mean I want to get the most for every throw. For me, that means curve ball and at least a great throw. Looking at 220 xp per throw versus 100 just makes it more fun for me and it’s a challenge for me to hit that spot. I feel like an mlb pitcher trying to hit the corners. It’s fun. Not to mention, if it were the only aspect of scoring in the game, you would complete the challenge in half the time. How does this connect to the event. Well events put out mass spawns of specific mons, which means you can really lock into your throws when your catching many of the same mons. For this event, I think the hidden secret is the exeggcute. I find them one of the easiest to attain great throws with. Sometimes even if they jump, the circle stays and you still get the credit. Just putting it out there for those who find this part of the game interesting to consider. Let me know if you have thoughts.

I like sinking that ball right in the middle of the eggs, like making a basket.

I’m a simpler man. If something breaks out, I tend to be just as satisfied with a great shot as I am with hitting them in the face.

Not sure why Exeggcute is the focal of this event. They should have save it for Easter?

You probably already know it’s because it’s considered a pink pokemon. But you make a really good point.

If exeggcutes are part of this, hopefully Easter will be some mammoth hatch-a-thon with incubators and 10Ks galore.

Amen to that.

… and Blissey live in the game.  She’s part of the egg theme, really

You think we’ll ever get a Lapras event like the one that was overseas?

If some town or company pays for it, like that region in Japan did.

We could start a pool.  I’ve got $10 to add to it.  Now we just need 10,000 other Houstonians to do it, and we might get the event. Gofundme, here we come!

That Lapras event in and around Ishinomaki was an attempt to bring in outside money and awareness to a region that was devastated by the tsunami in 2011. The point of bringing this up is that we do not want an event like that. It would mean Hurricane “State Your Name” slammed into SE Texas with disastrous results. Additionally, Niantic did not take any money for the event, to their credit. Here is the link to the Waypoint interview with John Hanke the other day where he does talk about staging large live special events being a focus for 2017.
