Preliminary Pokecrawl 4 Thread

Atlus ParkerAtlus Parker Registered User regular
Hello Everyone!

While it's a bit too early to release all the details for the 4th annual Pokecrawl, I need to poke my head in for a couple reasons.

1. At last year's TWDT, I used Eventbrite to handle registration. It worked beautifully so I will be going with the same system for the Pokecrawl. Registration isn't open yet but you can check out the event page for more details.

http://pokecrawl4.eventbrite.com/

2. This year we will need to fill a few holes in our volunteer staff. We have positions open in every group. Obviously I prefer volunteers who have helped out with or attended previous events but if you are interested in helping out in any way please PM me.

That's all I have for now so stay tuned for the official Pokecrawl4 thread!

    Check the OP for registration details. It will not be handled through the forums but through Eventbrite.

    Can I ask a stupid question?

    Tough, I'm going to anyway - what is the difference between the various options (silver/gold) - and is the name Pokecrawl just a fun name, or is knowledge and/or ownership of Pokemon required?

    Teams: The split teams keep the crowd sizes manageable. The way the routes are scheduled, each team will meet up with their houses' opposite at the beginning and end of the night, and with their opposite from each of the other houses (i.e. Blue Silver will meet Blue Gold, then some order or Red/Yellow/Green Gold, then finish with Blue Gold again). Other than that, no distinction.

    Theme: Don't sweat knowing anything about Pokemon, just realize there will be plenty of Pokemon during the crawl. If you can get into the spirit of it, all the better.

    Silver vs Gold - essentially the difference is who you drink with. For last year i was blue silver so for the first and last bar we drank with blue gold. Bars 2-4 were yellow, green and red silver respectively. You cross pathes with gold while walking but wouldnt be drinking with them as silver (minus your teams gold group). This is done mainly to just get us drinking with different people and prevent trying to mob a bar with 200 people to say have blue and reds full teams drink together. At 100 people a clip these bars get quite crowded (had 0 problems getting drinks or getting around though).

    Also no no knowledge or ownership of pokemon is required although it doesnt hurt to have some. The overall night is pokemom themed so some ppl dress up as you can see the yellow team had some a bit further up in this thread and the activites themselves are just a themed drinking game. The requirements as i recall are pretty much come to have fun and leave your asshole pants at home (which does include preferably knowing your limits).

    Missed this for the first time last year due to work. Team Green seems to have split. Not sure which to represent now. F5.. F5... F5..

    Also, random acts of west side story battles have been known to break out on street corners while waiting to enter a bar.

    Also, I think registration opens on a 16 hour work day for me. That's balls for me. x.x

    My group may be getting a little dressed up for this. We will see what ideas come about. I might just wear my Snivy shirt, a top hat, and monocle. Haha. HATERS GONNA HATE.

    Or maybe I will order one of those awesome Pokehats.

    I'm a bit worried because of when the event opens up for registration, how long does it usually take for this to fill up? Hours? A day?

    The most popular groups fill up in minutes, but it usually takes a day to fill the whole event.

    So, I will definitely be using a proxy to buy me a spot! Damned 16 hour factory shifts!

    I need like 5 spots on Yellow Gold lol.

  • Options
    zerzhulzerzhul Registered User, Moderator mod
    The spots do not cost money, eventbrite is just being used as a ticketing system. Also it is limited to yourself + 1, so you may only register for 2 spots. The details are on the eventbrite page :)

    In other words, make sure your friends order their own tickets, considering I need about 6-7 for my group (we're splitting up though).

    Pokemon themed bar crawl through Boston, with teams, contests, and fun with other PAX-goers.

    Drink, walk around a small part of Boston, drink, make terrible Pokemon puns, drink, get into a fight over which was the best starting Pokemon, drink, get a button for drinking all the drinks.

    For the children. Honest. There's a small entry fee, and each team usually auctions off stuff, all of the proceeds going to Child's Play. You don't hate children, do you? You'd be a heartless bastard not to sign up!

    Is it PAX <insert nearest future PAX here> yet?

    Well, I'm supposed to have a class that evening until 9... but let's be honest who can focus in class the night before PAX starts anyway?

    Pokemon-themed drinking is... like class, isn't it?

    I respond well to threats. Yellow-Silver it is.
