Pokemon Go 1 Year Anniversary
4 days ago
Pokemon Go has been live and out for 1 year. Chip and Cern have been hunting those Pokemon for the entire year. Time for a recap and summary of the last year. Talking the new gym updates, special events and hunt for filling the Pokedex. Chip and Cern have lost some steam after the Gen 2 release. They have pretty much resulted to just spinning the first stop of the day to get the bonus and catching the first mon to get the catch bonus.
