A Year On From "Pokéstop Nomination" Have You Seen An Increase In Active Players In Your Area?
I know they're officially called Wayspots but I'm just speaking in terms of Pokémon GO here. I know having a gym in the local neigbourhood park can make all the difference to a person's playing experience in the area. I definitely want to encourage the next generation of Pokémon trainers so as such, like I have stated previously, I am really careful with how I plan out nominations for an area.
A rather larger park (than the local neighbourhood ones) near my house previously had just six gyms, before November 2019, now has 20+ gyms (depending on what counts as "the park"). I've certainly seen an increase in the number of Pokémon trainers engaging with the park. I know we have the whole plague situation now and people to be more careful but in spite of that, I see more and new trainer names popping up. I think this is great!
I will always extol the benefits of a walk in the park. It is claimed a lack of Vitamin D is a key factor in how severe a person's Covid-19 is. Thus, people need to be spending more time out in the sunshine, if they are able to.
