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.

 

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?

Question of the Day: What Are Your Fav Subreddits?

artists-fav-subreddits

I have to admit right off the bat that I don’t spend much time really digging around Reddit other than keeping tabs on World News or the odd IAmA, and occasionally cruising through Shower Thoughts and Explain Like I’m Five. My friend Rob put me onto NoNoNoNoYes (videos and gifs of things going from bad to worse and then suddenly great) and I thought it would be great to get recommendations from all of you.

I would love to know your favourite subreddits; the more specific and obscure the better! Funny, enlightening, weird or all of the above. Feed me!

Weird New Video Game of the Day: Push Me Pull You

Push

Push Me Pull You by House House is a bizarre 2-4 player game where everyone wrestles for control of a ball. The catch is, you’re also joined at the waist in a worm-like mass so every action you make affects everyone else. Check out more of the adorable-yet-strange game in the video below!
