Pokemon Go Fest Finale!

Saturday was the Pomemon Go Fest Finale, and despite what everyone seemed to think, so long as you bought a ticket to the first Go Fest, this one was free/was a continuation.

The storyline for this year’s Go Fest was that a mysterious portal opened up to another dimension and allowed in and Ultra Beast, and also sucked in Professor Willow (he’s the guy that you’re assisting with all the research and pokemon catching and what not). After he disappeared, a mysterious guy from the other dimension shows up to help you (aka take Willows place). This happened in June, and over the next months, the monthly research was the mysterious space guy, because of course Willow couldn’t be there since he was missing, so it was a cute way to keep the story going. Of course this last Saturday, Willow finally returns, and the portals increase, allowing other Ultra Beasts (who had been released at in person only events over the summer) to appear in raids, and our spaceman friend created some Ultra beast balls for catching them and…now everything has been returned to normal.

Anyway, Go Fest days started at 10 a.m. which meant we had to get up and get going early. The one joy of getting up early is that I get to eat breakfast, and what a yummy breakfast it was!

That’s right! A hot dog from the Weiner Wagon! Ha!! I actually ran into them a couple years ago at Buzzard Fest in Coin, but then they were the Teeny Weeny Weiner Wagon and had a tiny cart, so it’s awesome to see they’ve been able to upgrade. So tasty!

Lunch was just as good because it was a walking Taco from the DAC creamery (I had ice cream, too! Why not! It’s a special day, after all! Carbs don’t count on special days, right?)

And here’s something weird I noticed while driving around that hubby assures me has been there forever:

Anyway, though we did do raids to get Ultra Beasts, my main goal was shiny hunting. And I did waaaay better than usual. I think it’s because we spent most of the time driving around so instead of staying stationary and checking 50 mons we could check 200 mons. In all I got 22 shinies, which is a record for me for any event. I think 12 is the most I’ve had before.

The event ended at 6 pm, in time for a killer rain storm. (I wonder how the people who’ve been in the tents for weeks faired with it?) There was a lot of wind and rain, so we got trapped in the truck for awhile. But, when it ended we went to Stadium 34 for dinner with friends, and had a nice time.

The drink is a Rum Rollover. I’d never had it but yummy! So good! It’s coconut rum, OJ, pineapple juice and grenadine. Mmmmm… and chicken parmesana is always good.

So, anyway, it was a good day. The storm was weird, and the chick hiding in the park bathroom for well over an hour was weird, but what’s a day without a little weirdness, right?

Have a shiny pokemon kinda day!
