For three hours last Saturday the world was flooded with Charmander as local player groups held neighborhood events across the Silph League.
This month a Shiny Charizard Silph League Badge was the collectible memento earned by attending a meetup and checking-in. The Silph Road team has concluded our post-event analysis of May Community Day. Let’s take a look!

Visualizing League Participation
Time for the League check-in map! You can yet again toggle between previous months to compare check-ins over time. (And don’t forget to click the ‘geolocate me’ button to zoom to your location, or the fullscreen button if you want to play with a larger map)!
Clicking the dots will show the meetup check-in counts at that location.
At this pace, we’ll soon break 2,000 participating local communities at Community Day events, travelers! The Silph League now represents one of the largest boots-on-the-ground volunteer-run events in the world, with over 4,300 volunteer staff helping provide League benefits to their meetup attendees. Keep spreading the good word, travelers. We’ve got great things in the works. 🙂

Stories and pictures from League communities are the best part of Community Day events. We received so many photos of communities around the world this month, it’s difficult to select a few to feature! Next month, we’ll feature stories and anecdotes from around the League.
