As for me, I think I’ll rediscover my first love and catch pokemon.
You see, event dinos (plus the rewards you can collect from green stops - coins/cash/scents) are a powerful incentive to go out and collect DNA and getting good exercise (walking, biking) while doing so. But without any special dinos to hunt it’s not nearly as interesting. Actually, it’s a welcome relief to get some rest from the pursuit of event dinos (which normally you wouldn’t want to miss, right?) which allows us to reconnect with other activities or hobbies.
I never dreamed I could be a gamer, then along came Pokemon Go and took me by surprise. I was a very dedicated player (the day I hit 40 was a great one). I never dreamed that any game could be more fun than PoGo, which inspired me to exercise daily and connect with the local community. Then along came JWA… and turned me into a casual PoGo player overnight.
Now I do the bare minimum in PoGo (daily catch/spin streak, occasional raid, community day) and spend most of my gaming time playing JWA… collecting, PVP, alliance activities, etc. But I’m beginning to feel unappreciated - instead of adding more events (as Niantic seems to do daily… every time I open the app they announce something new) Ludia is taking them away. Does this mean this game is going the way of the dinosaurs?
I sure hope not, as I love this game, and don’t want it to go away. But maybe it’s time to reconnect with my first love… and catch some of these new pokemon whose names I don’t even know.
TL/DR: What are you doing today, on a day without event dinos?
