As many of you know, we recently made some changes to Pokémon GO.

- We have removed the ‘3-step’ display in order to improve upon the underlying design. The original feature, although enjoyed by many, was also confusing and did not meet our underlying product goals. We will keep you posted as we strive to improve this feature.

- We have limited access by third-party services which were interfering with our ability to maintain quality of service for our users and to bring Pokémon GO to users around the world. The large number of users has made the roll-out of Pokémon GO around the world an... interesting… challenge. And we aren’t done yet! Yes, Brazil, we want to bring the game to you (and many other countries where it is not yet available).

We have read your posts and emails and we hear the frustration from folks in places where we haven’t launched yet, and from those of you who miss these features. We want you to know that we have been working crazy hours to keep the game running as we continue to launch globally. If you haven’t heard us Tweeting much it’s because we’ve been heads down working on the game. But we’ll do our best going forward to keep you posted on what’s going on.

Be safe, be nice to your fellow trainers, and keep on exploring.

Roboshark: hilariously bad, super self-aware, features emojis.

Three Headed Shark Attack: not self aware at all, features alllllll the tropes, but still hilariously bad.

Swamp Shark: just bad. Or maybe we are just getting sick of shark B-movies.

Enlightened agents +Lady Rayn3 and +lngress labs have been running Last Saturday for a while now in addition to First Saturday, and have helped make cross-factions relations more friendly in the area. Unfortunately, some detractors have taken umbrage at all this horrible, awful friendliness, and have been hurling some (hilariously false) accusations their way. So I thought- kill 'em with kindness! Let's throw a teal field over the area to show just what we think of all this grumpiness. (Hint: Bless their little hearts)

Last night's Last Saturday was moved indoors due to weather, and we had a little chili cookoff. Chili, cornbread, fire crackers, and camaraderie. Also giant dogs (not on the menu, just in attendance). I'm pretty sure some of the kids there could have used the dogs as horses to charge into battle, but I didn't want to give them any ideas. It would have been amazing though.

After a while we decided it was time. We took our obligatory group picture (, then +Andrew Lutz and Labs whipped up a plan, organized the keys, and divided us up into teams. I took Lady Rayne in my car, because two Jessicas are better than one. +Code-E Frazier and +Lester Long were in another vehicle, and +Ptah Baphomet chauffeured +Roger Joiner, +Sarah Metz, and +Becka C in his vehicle. Labs and Andrew ran intel from the house, and +robert moreno helped us take down blockers. 

And we were off! Lady and I ran around the southern anchors clearing blockers and struggling with connectivity issues. (Seriously, I had 4G, then nothing, then 3G, then who knows what. I think my phone was drunk.) Finally, all the blockers were down, everyone was in place, and we started throwing. Hooray! The best part of an op, when it all starts coming together. 

We did 4 layers, 2 blue and 2 green. Interestingly, it looked different in my scanner versus Lady Rayne's scanner. Hers was definitely more green, while mine was much prettier with more blue in it. We took screenshots while at the same place, and the difference is notable even in the screenshots. Either way, it was worth the late night. We all had a great time, and as an added bonus I got my last few portals captured for my gold Pioneer badge. Woohoo! 

After completing the fields, we reconvened at the house and celebrated. There were cupcakes.
