The last weekend, “Nidos Pokémon Go Argentina” made a national collaborative event in Argentina called “What if we lure all Argentina?” (https://www.facebook.com/NidosPokemonGoArg/posts/739107676213761)

On friday we set out to lure different areas of Argentina, so that everyone could make the most of the event, and we did it!

The first day we registered 2500 lures active all over the country between 4PM and 10PM. Each active lure for 6 hours contributed a Pokémon every 3 minutes, that’s 300,000 extra Pokémon nationwide! And each one could be captured by all the trainers that were nearby, in order to get closer to the 3 billion captures goal to unlock farfetch’d worldwide.

Thousands of trainers collaborated with this target, uploading photos in every part of the country ( https://www.facebook.com/NidosPokemonGoArg/posts/739758946148634 )

One month ago we managed to gather more than 1500 trainers in Puerto Madero, Argentina for the Trainer Challenge, an event with games related to Pokemon with raffles and prizes for all the participants: https://www.facebook.com/NidosPokemonGoArg/posts/725282694262926

And you, how did you enjoy the event this weekend?

The event was awesome. Many people are with softban because of the amount of Pokémon that we caught during the last week.

    That’s great stuff, really !
    But 2500 is defenitely not « All Argentina », not even close .

    • Evelyn Cejas Moreira

      Well, not really. The idea was to get every player to contribute at least one lure module. But we did manage to lure one park on every capital city completely.

      • peponzio

        I didn’t know there were theist faces.

  • peponzio

    And Ho-oh is out. 15 minutes ago. I want one.

  • hkmaly

    Wait, how does number of pokemons results in softban? Unless those were spoofers.

    • Verity

      If you catch more than 3500 mons in 1 week you get soft banned. Can be done physically as well.

    Last saturday I was with a friend in a park in Córdoba city (Argentina) doing raids and walking, and there was lures in almost every pokestop, all activaded by 2 accounts (404 and 405PokGoArg, or some like that)
    Finally I can undestand what was all that about 😉
