1:00 - Pokemon hunting at Grand Park*

4:00 - Pokemon 3DS tournament (more details coming soon) at Little Tokyo Galleria
5:00 - Cosplay contest at Weller Court
6:00 - Last group photo & closing at Weller Court
Just like a little mini Pokemon convention, vendors were outside selling Team shirt, pins and hats at $15, there was an abundance of team valors were present.
A Karaoke event took place after in from of Murakai. In one of the videos, a fellow otakus is seen singing to Kanye West as others cheer. The atmosphere was terrific for the first ever Pokemon Go event of the year.
On the other side fellow players begin a Super Smash Bros melee contest. One player uses Pikachu, another uses Jiggly Puff and here we have a small Pokemon battle. Haha super fun.
The next event is set to take place in mid August, I can't wait!
