As the dust settles around the world after an epic Community Day weekend, the Silph League has finalized our network’s global turnout this weekend, travelers!
On Sunday, thousands of League
staff volunteers hosted meetups for the 3rd Pokemon GO community day – and this time they were awarding a Shiny Venusaur Silph League Badge as a memento of the global Bulbasaur event. Now that all the tallies and reports are in one thing is clear: the Silph League has grown even larger!
Let’s take a look at the League network’s latest participation and growth metrics, travelers!
League Stats for the March Community Day League Event
Here are some of the key indicators we observe that show the participation and activity in the League around the world:
|Communities That Checked In (Non-
|Average Check-Ins Per Community||
The Total Number of Shiny Venusaur League Badges Earned:
What a milestone we’ve achieved, travelers! These numbers are an 11.1% increase in meetup check-ins, a 15.9% increase in the number of participating League communities, and a 10.5% increase in
staff on-the-ground who helped check travelers in compared to last month. (These figures again exclude communities with very few members, or those who only checked
Visualizing League Participation
As is tradition, here’s a mindbogglingly cool interactive visualization of our player network’s activities this past Sunday. Explore this map of all League check-ins (and don’t forget to click the ‘geolocate me’ button to zoom to your location)!
Clicking the green dots will show the meetup check-in counts at that location!
And just for fun, here’s a few comparison graphics from last month’s League event. February meetups are pink while March meetups are green:
Overall, we saw hundreds of new communities participate, hundreds more
staff volunteers handling check-ins at their meetups, and we saw many communities awarding more League Badge awards for than they did in February. Keep spreading the good word, travelers. Though the Silph League now has over 4,000 communities, we still have room to grow!

It’s difficult to stand out in a crowd of 1,670+ communities, but 10 communities in the League went all in and checked-in over 200 travelers each! This took a lot of
staff and a great deal of administrative effort. We want to give these standouts some recognition for the service they rendered to their local community:
|Pokemon Go: Philippines||501|
|Silph Road – Houston||482|
|Portland Pokemon Go||356|
|GVRD PoGo Collective||294|
|Pokemon Go Raids (Connecticut)||260|
|Silph Road Southwest Leadership||253|
|Las Vegas Pokémon Go Community Day||213|
|Pokémon Go México: Liga de Campeones||212|
A Peek Into League Meetups Around the World
One of the best parts of Community Day in the League is the chance to see how other cities and neighborhoods accomplished their local meetup. We’re impressed at the resourcefulness, energy, and altruism of our League community leaders in countries all over the world.
Here’s a peek at some of our favorite photos shared within the League.
Stay tuned for the next League event, travelers. It’s going to be even better.
