Sweet. How do I join?
- Read the stickied thread
- Subscribe (above) and assign yourself the correct subreddit flair via the sidebar. (Important: so we can contact you!)
- You’ll receive a reddit message with an access code, inviting you to join the Silph Road’s alpha test when our web-based system is launched.
For now, we also recommend subscribing to the subreddit (above) and if you’re on Twitter, follow the handle @TheSilphRoad. We’ll be announcing updates in both places.
Though Pokémon GO™ is out, trading has yet to be implemented. We can begin organizing now and hit the ground with trade routes in-tact and operational.
Join us and help us build trade routes around the world!
But We Don’t Even Know ____!
We know enough. Repeated statements from Pokémon GO™ creators confirm in-person trading and geo-scarcity. Read this for a quick example of this subreddit’s opinion on whether trading/scarcity will exist in Pokémon GO™.
