Pokémon hunters invited to Lincoln Spookymon 2017

This Halloween, Pokémon collectors from across the county will meet in Lincoln for a spooky series of events.

Hundreds of enthusiastic hunters are expected to flock to the city for the second Halloween event for Pokémon Go players.

Lincoln Spookymon takes place on Saturday, October 28 at Boultham Park Bowls Club between 12 noon and 4pm. It is the culmination of several regional Halloween events.

Money raised from the event will go towards Preventing Unwanted Pets Lincoln.

Organisers said: “This is the second year Spookymon has been held at Boultham Park and promises to be bigger and better!

“Boultham Park is a hotspot for Pokémon Go players (also known as trainers) with three highly contested gyms and concentrations of specific types of Pokémon.”

Events include the following:

  • Spooky Treasure Hunt – A series of questions to take you on a journey around the park, trainers discover areas they may not have visited, but they may also be able to catch that rare Pokémon for their collection.
  • Rare Pokémon spawning – Pokémon Go Trainers will notice an increased likelihood of finding Pokémon that fit in with the Halloween theme, beyond those discovered elsewhere.
  • Figure Hunt – 3D printed figures of popular Pokémon will be hidden throughout the park for trainers to find.
  • 3D Print Demo – See how the figures for the hunt are created.
  • Games for the family – Child-friendly games based at the Bowls Club.
  • Craft Table – Create your own Spooky Halloween pictures
  • Craft Stall – Pokémon inspired crafts for you to buy
  • Costume Competition – Come dressed to scare or wow
