    For the Record: Team Red is Victorious.

    This.

    Well done by all. Had a great time, but too much vodka.

    Round 2 tomorrow.

    Personal Revelations from Participating In the 2010 Inaugural Pax East Pokecrawl

    1. Although rivals in every sense, Team Rocket is very stylish, and is clearly a better fashion choice when compared to dressing like a Pokémon.

    2. The unassuming Boylston street drinking crowd, faced with an onslaught of about 280 passionate poke-party-people, would have been better suited dealing with a bus fleet of Yankee fans. Perfectly hospitable, they were still visibly confused.

    3. You need not worry about embarrassment when whipping out your Pokewalker. After encountering the fifth person with multiple pedometers in several languages, embarrassment quickly turn into jealousy.

    4. You really do need to drink them all.

    5. Referring to people strictly via a color outside the racial spectrum was incredibly uplifting. Ok, I was team yellow, but it was Pikachu yellow. It’s a different yellow. As with Red. Don’t question it. You had to be there.

    6. As a native, It’s your job to let visitors know the laws of the land. Especially the cool ones.

    7. You might end up with trading cards of game journalists. It’s ok, while not all that valuable, perhaps you could attach them to a bicycle in some act of post-modern man-child time-warp rebellion.

    8. Mew is a harsh mistress.

    9. Just like college, the professor’s a pretty cool dude.

    10. Buttons are shiny.

    You WISH you had as many pokewalkers as me =) I was double fisting them all evening. Giggity

    Seriously, I LOVE all of my wonderful wonderful team. You guys were great to party with and I hope you all got home safe as I was not exactly in the condition to get anyone home =) This was an epically beautiful barcrawl and I can't wait to reintroduce myself to all of you tomorrow =) Go Team Bulbasaur!!!!

    i still can't believe kings let us storm their karaoke stage to sing the pokemon theme song.
    it was so awesome. XD

    all of the teams were awesome! and props to atlus and the gang for getting this pulled off.
    half the bars couldn't fit two teams in at a time but it was a blast.

    nothing like a local pounding on a window your standing outside of so that he can get a picture of the guys in costume.

    i'm so ready for PAX now.

    I'm not sure if I threw my phone into a pile of ketchup last night in the spirit of team red or if I was just drunk and dropped it. Either way, last night was a good time. Thanks to the organizers.

    She was great. She kept celebrating when we left, and then we'd be right back there in 15 minutes and she would give us the dirtiest looks...but I can't shake the feeling that she loved us.

    hey guys/gals from blue team. Had a lot of fun last night, althought when I woke at 7 to make it to the tweetup with majornelson I think I was still drunk :(

    If anyone wants to hang out again I'm free tonight and I'll be hitting up the 2old2play party at Lir tomorrow night.

    Had a great time.

    Atlus, thanks for putting this together. It's a shame we had trouble getting into the bars and team blue ended up camping at King's, but it was a riot nonetheless.

    And thanks to all who petted the turtle shell! Your $1 donation to charity is much appreciated!

    I had such an awesome time. I'm the guy that remembered pretty much everyone's name. Couldn't find team Red so we jumped to Green and eventually landed on Blue and drank for victory.

    My buddy was the one who downed Dan Akroyd's Crystal Skull vodka for the win.

    Big shout outs to all the amazing people we met: John, Jay, Tony mudkip, Darian, Jacob, Zori (sumthin like that sorry), Steve, Seth Chris and Eric the pokeprofs, enforcer Ryan, and anyone else I forgot.

    Thanks for a great time!!

    So I've been told all the Pokehats I'm seeing came from this Pubcrawl. I'm wondering if the maker of said hats is willing to make or sell more as I definitely would like one despite having missed this event.
    I'm not as glued to technical devices, so I will only be able to check this in the hotel.

    That is amazing in itself, not only did you do the challenge.. You managed to find fatlus when he was in a state to distribute one!
    Fortunately, I kidnapped one as well!

    Don't know if anyone will read this now that PAX is completely over, but what the hell.

    Team Bulbasaur, Jay here, and I wanna thank you guys for helping ring in my 30th b-day. you all were awesome.

    same goes to everyone else that I got to drink with. Everyone was awesome. Nights a blur, but i do remember laughing and being all smiles.

    The many people in Kings that kept needing a team green person to do shots with and somehow it felt like it was always me... I thank you. Wallet may not, but I do!
