Plans[edit]

While sightseeing Saint Petersburg, Russia through the prism of Pokémon Go pokestops, working on my 18th level, during the 1st day of my vacation in this city, I remembered of the idea I had of "poké-hashing", which would be an achievement for catching a pokemon at the geohash. The only difference, is this time I actually went as far as checking today's geohash location, which turned out to be easy. So...

Expedition[edit]

Catching a pokemon at the hash could have been achieved with the help of incense (in-game item, provoking pokemons to spawn at player's location) - didn't have one. Or just by waiting long enough - didn't want. Or by having a considerable amount of luck - nope.

So, no poké-hash.

Not sure about "Virgin Graticule Achievement" - although there's no proper report of an expedition, the graticule page indicates that possibly there was a meetup back in 2008.
