GO Hub is hosting a Charmander Catch Challenge in LATAM!

Posted in

Trainers! Do you remember last week we told you about a secret project we were working on? Well, it’s time to unveil the truth! We are holding a Charmander Catch Challenge on the occasion of celebrating an addition to the Pokémon Go Hub family: Pokémon Go Hub LATAM! 

There are more than 40 Latin American communities collaborating with us, and also 19 well known YouTubers.

We want to show Latin America to the world, how many Pokémon Trainers there are, how passionate they are about the game and how they can work together along the most important content creators of the world!

You can officially participate if you are in one of the following countries, but we invite everyone to participate (how to participate is below):

Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haití, Honduras, México, Nicaragua, Panamá, Paraguay, Perú, República Dominicana, Uruguay and Venezuela.

How to participate?

Post on Twitter or Instagram a screenshot of your Charmander Pokédex entry 1 hour before the start of the event, and up to 1 hour after it finishes (it must be on public mode or we won’t be able to see it). It MUST contain these 2 hashtags, otherwise we can’t find your entry.

The first one is #HolaNiantic, the second one depends on the country you are in:

  • Argentina: #GoHubArgentina
  • Bolivia: #GoHubBolivia
  • Brazil: #GoHubBrasil
  • Chile: #GoHubChile
  • Colombia: #GoHubColombia
  • Costa Rica: #GoHubCostaRica
  • Cuba: #GoHubCuba
  • Ecuador: #GoHubEcuador
  • El Salvador #GoHubElSalvador
  • Guatemala: #GoHubGuatemala
  • Haití: #GoHubHaiti
  • Honduras: #GoHubHonduras
  • México: #GoHubMexico
  • Nicaragua: #GoHubNicaragua
  • Panamá: #GoHubPanama
  • Paraguay: #GoHubParaguay
  • Perú: #GoHubPeru
  • República Dominicana: #GoHubRepDominicana
  • Uruguay: #GoHubUruguay
  • Venezuela: #GoHubVenezuela

Once the time limit finishes, the leaders of the 42 communities will count the amount of caught Charmander to determine the winners. There are 3 categories:

  1. Individual Trainer: the one that captured the most Charmander in general for all LATAM.
  2. Country: the one with the most captured Charmander adding the number of catches of the top 5 players️.
  3. YouTuber: the content creator that gets the most Charmander out of the participating 19.


The winning individual trainer will get a Pokémon Go Plus and a Go Hub T-shirt. The 5 trainers who captured the most for the winning country will get a Go Hub T-shirt each.


  • The participant trainers have to play within the Pokémon Go Terms of Service.
  • The trainers that try to change their capture numbers on some way will be disqualified.
  • Pokémon Go Hub will get on touch with the preliminary winners to ask for video evidence to verify the legitimacy of the screenshot (avatar, Pokedex entries, Pokemon bag, and everything that we consider necessary).
  • The posted screenshots without the 2 hashtags won’t be take in account.
  • If there’s a tie, the winner will be the trainer with the most shiny Charmander captured. If there’s a tie again, the winner will be the one with the bigger shiny Charmander captured.
  • The results can take up to 7 days to be obtained.
