Booooooom x Society6 Doodle Hunt Officially Begins!

DOODLEHUNT-WISH-INSTA2

 

Today we officially launch our biggest Doodle Hunt yet! We’ve teamed up with our friends at Society6 and commissioned 3 artists (Sashiko Yuen aka Wishcandy, Nicole Xu, and Sara Maese) to create a bunch of drawings that we could hide on Booooooom and Society6. There’s 15 drawings in total, and the first person to find them all gets a $500 Society6 gift card! Just a little something to help you grow or start your art collection!

So what if you find them all but you aren’t the fastest to do it? At the end of the Doodle Hunt there will be a random draw for another $500 Society6 gift card (these prizes are no joke!) and any Hunters who found all 15 drawings will be automatically entered in this draw! There will also be some smaller prizes for just participating!

The Doodle Hunt closes August 19th. Doodle Hunters submit by sending an email containing all 15 images to: doodlehunt@booooooom.com.

Good luck and thanks for hanging around on Booooooom!

Pokémon Go: Complete Pokédex Silhouette Reference Chart

Download: The Complete Pokédex Character Reference Chart

 

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?
