On the side of the road, near "Prospekt Veteranov" metro station.




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...


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.
