PAX East Pokewalker Meetup *Location Changed 3/2/11*

Welcome to the PAX East PokeWalker Meetup

**Sorry! Last Minute Location Changed!**
So I picked a location before the world map was released and I picked wrong. I picked a middle of queue area right when the “Live Demo of Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Dev Team Q&A” will be lining up.I didn’t want to make a change so close to PAX but I didn’t want to more work for our awesome enforcers and be in area that would be congested and hidden so
I have moved the spot across from the handheld area. The time will be the same.


See updated post.

First Meetup:
Saturday 1:30pm (confirmed)
Location: Outside the Handheld Area
Map:
Spoiler:

Second Meetup with Permission from Heleor:
Pokemon Champion's Challenge
Location & Time: 6:30pm on Sunday, Westin Lobby

Prizes: YES!!!
The Twitter: add #paxwalker to your tweets

About:
I always liked these Pokewalkers. I think they are great addition to the Pokemon game. If you are unaware what a Pokewalker is for some reason here is a nice article: http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Pokewalker

One of the many benefits of having a Pokewalker is meeting other people with Pokewalkers. At previous PAX it was awesome finding and meeting new people just by noticing the Pokewalker so I thought creating a meet up just for that would be a good idea.


What to Do:
Bring your Pokewalker to PAX with you copy of HG/SS of course. Make your Pokewalker viewable to all. Try putting it on your hat, lanyard, shirt, staff, etc. Just make sure it’s well secured! Leave no Pokemon behind.
At the Meetup, say hi to your fellow PAX Trainer, link up Pokewalkers, Trade items, unlock routes and maybe even train and battle for the PAX Pokemon League. Also there will be Prizes!!!!!

Prizes:
As a small thank you to all who come I have gotten some very small gifts for people. Available while supply lasts but I am ordering more hopefully more will come in time.

In Order to get a gift you need to fulfill one of the requirements:

• Have a Pokewalker
• Cosplay as Pokemon, Trainer, Professor, etc
• Be part of the Pokemone League Crew (Trainers with those scarves , Gym Leaders)


Help: I would like to take a group photo as we did in the past but alas I lack the skill and equipment to take a good photo so if you are willing please post or message me.

Thanks to the friends at the PAX Pokemon League


Here is a picture from last time:

    I assume I will have mine, although I have most of the pokemon you can get from the walker at this point. Maybe I'll try to unlock something right before pax.

    I like the idea of pokewalker ID so I don't need it in my hand the whole time for people to pokewalk with me.

    Clip it on your lanyard! Not only will you get more steps, it's easier to identify people.

    This, I earned so many thousands of points last year because of this, it was ridiculous.

    Meeting people via the Pokewalker was one of the unexpected high points of PAX for me last year. I will definitely be there.

    Just looked over the schedule. Nothing really leaps out at me around the time of the first meet-up so most likely I'll be there, and again, like pretty much every other PPL leader I'll be there for the 2nd one!

    I always laugh that the instructions for the pokewalker mention not to get it wet, or leave put it in the washing machine four times in five languages, as if anyone intentionally does that.

    If only it worked that way. Sadly, no matter how much you walk, your pokémon only gains one level, and only when you put it back in your PC box. :(

    That's not the case for me.... I'm training my Hopip, Charlie, from lvl 2 to lvl 100 just by pokewalker. Now, I dunno if that's even possible, but he's been leveling up just the same. (One level at a time, per usual)

    I have a level 40 metapod with no attacks from the poke-walker. ^_^

    I walk my togepi up enough to get it a level. And then I keep walking to make it happier and find me some loot. So far, she's found nothing to fight except Machop, but she's a happy camper.

    Charlie is lvl 36 at the moment. I think....

    Now we do! lol

    i was hoping for a world map to get a better idea where things will be but with less than two weeks to go I had to figure it out the hard way. Well it seems with nothing going on at the main hall at that time we can meetup there and let things 'evolve' (hehe pokemon pun) from there. I used a image from the BECE floor plan to get a idea of where to meet. Hopefully nothing big will be there at that time.

    If there is a world map out there and I am just missing it please let me know and i will update everything. BTW, i got 90 more gifts that came in the mail WHOOOO

    Here's the link to the world map! http://east.paxsite.com/bcec_map_2011.pdf You didn't really miss it. It was put up the same day as your last post.

    Just poking in to double check that there are two separate Poke groups. Let me know in a pm if you need a a back up tweet or two about your meets :)
