Thread: Pokemon Go @ Coachella (no, really)

    Default Pokemon Go @ Coachella (no, really)

    Hello Coachella Goers and fellow Pokemon Go Players!

    This weekend will be tons of fun, as we come to bask under the (hopefully) sub-100 desert sun and enjoy our favorite musical acts live on stage!

    But if you are a Pokemon Go player like me, you might have quite a dilemma. You see, one a month, Pokemon Go holds a special 3 hr event on local parks called "Community Day," where they increase the appearance of a specific pokemon and allow players a chance to catch 'shiny' (recolored) variants of them. This Sunday, April 15 from 11 am - 2pm is this month's Community Day, and as you know, coincides with Coachella. The event features the electric-type Mareep, and well, it's cute and fluffy and something I don't want to miss out out, especially the Shiny Pink variant that looks like Cotton candy.

    Now, first off, playing in the festival grounds would be a BIG no no, considering how terrible cell service can be there. Also, we need areas with a lot of Pokestops.

    So I was wondering, anyone else out there thinking of going to a local park closeby just for the 3 hours of Community Day? Try to catch a shiny Mareep? If you guys are local, do you know of any good and safe spots to hunt for Pokemon?

    Thank you and hope we don't miss much on Sunday's early line-up!

    PS: Please release the schedule soon.

    I stopped playing when they dumbed down the gyms last year and made you feed them berries. Otherwise I'd be down.

    In all seriousness, there are only 2 Ingress Portals onsite and you need VIP / Artist access to reach them.

    Assuming these are the same as Pokestops, your best best would be to head offsite along 111.

    Is there an Intel map of Pokestops like there is for Ingress?

    wow, two pokestops... that's not good..

    I found this: https://www.pokemongomap.info/locati...-116,243076/15

    It looks those are temporary pokestops? not sure..

    There's a couple around the Tack Room Tavern. Hmm.
