Someone “Caught” Articuno and We Love it, Some People Are Going to Say it is Fake

With the GoFest, Chicago’s heat and Pokemon Go’s Legendaries, some Trainers are very excited, some are not happy because of the event and some are catching Pokemon for the past 48h without sleep. But, besides them, there is a person who decided to make the things more interesting and lower the heat down by “catching” Articuno and share his skills with us.

As we all know Pokemon GoFest event in Chicago was a mess, the app connectivity was limited, Trainers got upset due to game’s crash and the livestream was delayed, at the end, Niantic made huge announcements and got the attention back from most of the Trainers. They’ve refunded the attendees, grant them $100 in PokeCoins, added Lugia to their account for free, x2 Stardust, x2 Candy, and x2 XP as a reward for catching millions of Pokemon during the Challenge Windows.

This event ends today, July 24 at 5:00 PM PDT. So, hurry up, put your running shoes on, get together with your fellow Trainers and catch em’ all.

Some Trainers have experienced difficulties during Legendary Raid Battles, couldn’t catch any Legendary Pokemon and gave up. But not MrMousePad, a Redditor who decided to “catch” Articuno at his own place, well to be more precise on his PC. And trust me, you are going to love it!

We’ve reached out to him and asked him few questions:

  • How is this even possible?

It takes a lot of skills and knowledge to “catch” this fine shiny bird he said.

  • What Program did you use to “catch” him?

I’ve used the most popular tool out there called “The Paint”.

  • Did it take a lot of time for you to make it “happen”?

To be honest, it took me around 2-3 minutes to create this master piece.

  • So, what’s the story behind it?

I went to GoFest in Grant Park Chicago, bought my ticket prior to the event, and participated together with me friends. Well, it was not something amazing, but when Niantic released the Legendaries, I was so excited and went to catch em’ all. But, I couldn’t catch not even one. Yes, I did have Lugia on my account because Niantic decided to give it for free, but I was looking to get that Articuno. I just wanted him in my collection. After so many failures, I gave up and said to myself, I go home now and I’m making my own Articuno. Like I said, it took 2-3 minutes and decided to share it in PokemonGo on Reddit. So, I received a lot of comments saying “You made my day”, “I haven’t laughed so much in days” and to be honest, I’m happy because of that. At the end of the day, we all need a good laugh!

MrMousePad has definitely used his skills at finest and made us laugh too. That bird though! 🙂
