The Numbers: Community Day in the Silph League

The Silph League connects Pokemon GO communities worldwide into a global player network. This past weekend an astounding number of travelers around the world volunteered time and energy as staff to help other travelers receive the Shiny Dratini Silph League Badge at their local meetups for February Community Day:

A Peek Into League Meetups Around the World

Community leaders held meetups around the world on Community Day – and we wanted to share a few of our favorite pictures they shared within the League! The physical swag, snacks, and creative goodies were impressive. And the variety of weather conditions make this photo roundup a powerful reminder of the global reach of the League.

We can’t wait til next Community Day.  We’ll have some exciting new announcements for the League by then… But in the meantime, enjoy the photo roundup!

Update at 2018-02-28 17:23:00: Map totals and top community counts originally included combined check-in counts for Jan+Feb. Now only February data is shown!
