This has been quite the week for the Pokémon GO Community. In a absolutely terrible turn of events, some members of the community took their toxic behavior to new levels. Upset over the Exploration Bonus announcement, the trolls lashed out and threatened Niantic employees, to the point where friend of the show, Liz George deactivated her personal Twitter account. On this episode we will detail the updates and the fallout that followed.


To bring some balance, we Stroke The Bear this week and ask the community to share some of their best memories about Pokémon GO. We had an outpouring of responses, and do our best to keep spirits high during this all time low. We are eternally grateful for our community, and appreciate everyone that took the time to get involved with the segment this week.


Amidst the madness, there was actually quite a few additional news stories dropped this week. From the Japanese Air Adventure campaign, to the announcement of Tepig Community Day. We were also given complete details on GO Fest Day 2 and the Legendary Pokémon that will be available to raid that day. They say all… But we want to make sure we put an asterisk next to that!
