    May I have the attention of Team Squirtle members? Thank you.

    Those heading to the dinner at Fire+Ice, please PM me. The PokeProf and PokeAssts need a more-or-less accurate headcount.

    I choose you, !Squirtle.

    I live Boston area and had been wondering if there would be any pre con stuff (mostly involving bars). Guess no goodies for me, but as long as I drink I'll be good.

    This is going to be amazing. I think I might make a Shaymin shirt. I'm trying to think of good green pokemans.

    What's a "shaymin"? :?:

    Also, this will be the last update to the rosters as I will be printing them out. At tis point you either show up or you don't. See you tonight!

    Blue Team. The shirts are done. Those who wanted them, I'll be outside of Kings a little early if you want to pick them up. I have some extras if anyone wants them. They are in XL and L. See you tonight!!!!

    SHAYMIN!!! (pokemans #492) Might not happen though if I don't have enough time to get back to my house after class. :( I do have a fun pink flower to put in my hair though!

    a hedgepig with a flower? interesting ....


    yea, I'm in that lovely area where Allston, Brighton, and Brookline all come together. It's ok ... besides having to take the B line.

    What's a shaymin is the correct answer.

    To all PokeProfs/PokeAssts: Will be at the Pour House at 8pm if not earlier if you need to pick up your packets. If you need to pick them up earlier please call or text me to arrange something.

    I pass by that area, I did today in fact. I work at Boston College. Currently living on northeastern campus, and a needham-ite in origin.

    So, any additional advice for those of us that aren't officially participating in the crawl, but want to try to meet up with one of the teams (all of the teams?) at some point after the start? I am busy at least until 10pm, but wanted to try to maybe meet up with folks for part of the crawl sometime after that...

    Just watch twitter? Just randomly head to one of the locations at a given time that they will be there? Something else?

    I would keep a copy of the schedule on hand, and then head to the bar your chosen team is supposed to be at. I don't think that roving gangs of drunk pokemon will be hard to spot...

    Nope! Just pick a team, look at the first post of this thread for where their first bar is, and show up there at 8:30 :)

    Odd question, but can someone direct me to king's from the hynes T station?
    had hoped to have done some exploring before now, but events since arriving here have kinda robbed me of that ability!

    Get out at Hynes, facing Mass Ave (BIG street. The small one is Newbury).

    You're facing Mass Ave? good. Walk to your left. You'll walk on top of a highway and soon intersect Boylston St.

    Cross Boylston St. and take a left. Look up. See the Sheraton and Hilton signs? walk towards them. Dalton St. will be on your right, and Kings has a BIG sign.

    Baka Al: When you leave Hynes you'll be facing Massachusetts Avenue. Take a left. Then take your first left onto Boylston St.

    As you walk down Boylston you will probably notice that you're crossing a bridge. Once you're across the bridge take your first right onto Dalton St. You'll can see the big sign for kings from Boylston St. It is in the same building as Bukowski's. (Dalton St faces a fire station.)

    If you pass Cactus Club on your left or you see the Hynes Convention Center across the street on your right you've gone too far.


    Note: There is an exit from they Hynes stop that puts you on Boylston St and also one that puts you on Newburry Street. They're lesser exits so you're not as likely to use them but from Newburry Street just take one extra left to put you on Massachusetts Ave.

    I have about a thousand songs on my iPhone - Was just listening to it on random and the Pokerap came on. Don't ask why I have that song on my iPhone, but I think it's safe to say that it was fate. Go team red. Headed to Pour House at 6pm to practice.

    I'm not going to bother choosing a team because I'm not sure if I'll make it. If I do, I'll probably just go to one of the bars listed at some point and chat up any of the folks with buttons and whatnot. I'll throw a Child's Play donation at one of the professor folks if I end up catching one the groups. Hope to see some of you folks out there!

    That's pretty far out, man!

    It's aparently both mexican and Syracuse night at pour house, so it's loaded with Syracuse fans and half priced Mexican food. Like I think they stopped letting people in, until people leave. It's probably too late to change bars, but I don't think the first few groups will get in.

    I dunno - Team Blue rocked the Kings all night long. . . . every time we tried to leave, we found ourselves right back at home base, and hosting the other teams. A great time was had by all!
