In the Pokémon GO community, GO Stadium has long been a hub for competitive PvP tournaments and events. Recently, Mike, known on Twitter as Cowboy Hat Caterpie Please, confirmed that he has stepped back from his ambitions to own GO Stadium. This has led to a call from players for a Cowboy Hat Caterpie Stadium, adding a positive twist to recent changes.
The Cowboy Hat Caterpie concept gained momentum through Mike Nerdlaw, a streamer who has persistently asked Niantic to introduce a cowboy hat Caterpie in Pokémon GO. He’s quick to respond to Niantic’s tweets, earning a large following who support his cause.
With the further developments yesterday, I have abandoned my pursuit of ownership of GoStadium. Sorry if I got anyone's hopes up or let anyone down. I still want what is best for the community, and always will.

Adding another layer of complexity to the situation, a former GO Stadium member, PolymersUp, has come under fire from his own circle after departing the organization. PolymersUp began creating content with Dracoviz, and this seems to have triggered negative reactions from his former associates, possibly because many ex-GO Stadium members have started aligning with Dracoviz.
I can’t stay silent while people level baseless attacks against my character any longer. What was mostly spread as various rumors ever since I left GO Stadium has escalated into direct private and public attacks.

The landscape of Pokémon GO’s PvP community is clearly going through some changes, and it remains to be seen how these recent developments will unfold.
