Our library has created a Pokémon marathon event, called a Pokéthon, based on the popular Pokémon Go game.
The Pokéthon implements a combination of aspects from the Pokémon universe, including the original Pokémon game, Pokémon Go for mobile devices, and various tasks, crafts and learning experiences that entertain and also educate the event participant. This program is designed as a six-day, after-school event for ages 4 and up, but can be shortened or lengthened depending on your library’s preferences or availability. Events include challenges, activities and tasks that can be completed to earn Pokémon badges.
The library purchases Pokémon coins and drops Pokémon lures to help people in the area catch new Pokémon creatures. We have also hosted activities such as the Pokéthon Scavenger Hunt, Who’s that Pokémon?, Origami Pokémon Challenge, Pokémon Team Showcase and Hatch Party!
