Pokémon Go was a global phenomenon when it was was released in the summer of 2016. But the craze died down as the developer failed to keep up with the fans’ enthusiasm. Thankfully, the company appears to have taken the criticism to heart and now, Pokémon Go is better than ever.
Probably the best thing about the game is that players can play the way they want. Whether a player wants to level her character and fight in gym battles or just wants to catch ‘em all, there are as many ways to play as there are players.
This class will focus on the social aspect of Pokémon Go. Students will learn how to fight in gyms and participate in raids together, how to earn valuable in-game currency without spending real money, and what makes a good Pokémon. And it goes without saying that, all the while, students will be outside, some days walking a mile or more.
The class will meet up outside the El Dorado Park Public Library. Some classes will meet up at the El Dorado Nature Center. Students are encouraged to bring water, a snack, sunscreen, and to wear good walking shoes. Kids will need to bring their own phone or wifi-capable device with Pokémon Go loaded on it, but we may be able to accommodate a couple of kids who do not have access to their own phone, iPod Touch, etc. Please contact us if you have any questions.
