Pokémon Go: Complete Pokédex Silhouette Reference Chart (UPDATED Gen 2 Silhouettes)

Download: The Complete Pokédex Character Reference Chart

*EDIT February 2017 – this post has been edited to include the full Pokemon Go Gen 2 Silhouettes Reference Chart courtesy of Redditor mgodseydesign on The Silph Road. See it at the bottom of the post!

Pokémon Go has been taking over my life the past couple weeks, and it’s weird because I never watched the show and don’t play games on my phone. Is anyone else in the same boat?

I read about the guy who apparently found all the available Pokémon but I couldn’t find an image of all the revealed characters. I was also surprised that it was so difficult to dig up an entire chart of all the Pokémon silhouettes to be able to know whether something close to you is worth searching for. Any longtime fans of Pokémon will already be able to recognize the silhouettes but I’m not one of them so a chart like this is kinda crucial!

The image above is essentially what it looks like to complete your entire Pokédex! This image above is the entire chart with all the characters revealed and below is the full chart as silhouettes (with and without titles). Full credit goes to Reddit user Jadael for posting the images here.

*UPDATE – Kadabra and Alakazam were swapped in the original images (thanks to several readers for pointing this out) both images have been fixed.

 

Essential Pokémon Go resources:

The Silph Road – this subreddit aims to be the largest online community of Pokémon Go users offering lots of findings, tips, and tricks.

Lvl 22 Player Giving Small Tips of Advice – this post on Reddit really answers every question you will have about the game and specific advice things like quickly levelling up.

Pokémon Go IV (Individual Values) Calculator – if you want to take the game to the nerdiest level possible, use the Google Doc linked here to accurately calculate if you should continue powering up your Pokémon or transfer it and move on.

 

Maybe I’m a huge nerd for liking this game but I can’t remember the last time I walked around my city and struck up as many conversations (albeit very nerdy conversations) with so many complete strangers of all ages. So far I’ve found 67 Pokémon and I’m level 17. Any other Booooooom readers playing?

Photographer Jessamyn Lovell Had Her Identity Stolen And Got Revenge With An Art Project

jessamyn-lovell_04

In 2011, photographer Jessamyn Lovell was at SF Camerawork, a gallery in San Francisco, discussing a project she was working on when her wallet was stolen. Of course this resulted in a series of unauthorized purchases and theft charges, and left Lovell feeling very angry. So angry in fact that she didn’t simply replace her cards and move on with her life, she actually decided to track down her thief and turn the whole thing into a photo project.

Lovell hired a private investigator named Pete Siragusa who was actually able to locate the scam artist, one Erin Coleen Hart. Lovell never confronted Hart, instead she began following her and photographing her in public places.

“This woman entered my life without my permission,” Lovell says, “and I then used that experience without her permission to create something new.” (source)

Last month, Lovell exhibited 34 images from her photo project “Dear Erin Hart” at SF Camerawork, the same gallery where her wallet was originally stolen. She made a point to mail an invitation to Hart for the opening reception of the show.

Take a look at images from the series below.

X + 1X + 1

Part two of a look at how the art of today created on computers are entering the real world gallery. In this interview, we examine the X + 1 event at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, a night where net artists from around the world have their works projected around the vast space of it’s Rotonde architecture. Organized by Erin Gee, Benoit Palop, Sabrina Ratté and Tristan Stevens, the show selected a number of net artists who then themselves chose another creative to have their work shown (hence X + 1), noting the characteristic and importance of networking and creativity of the scene. Here we talk to Tristan about the event, and how such institutions are adapting to current creative movements.
