I'd like to thank skutsch and plezercruz for half-inspiring this color-coordinated geekbadge.

I'm not playing Pokemon Go, but my kids are, so I have a little familiarity.

Wondering what's going to happen when some super-rare Pokemon shows up in the middle of the dealer hall.

If it is anything like Comiccon San Diego, there will be more slowly shuffling cell phone zombies than usual. I didn't hear any reports of rare Pokémon showing up.

There are currently no Gyms or Stops in the Dealer's Hall thankfully. So lures won't be a problem.

However, I am expecting a great deal of bandwidth sucked from the vendors for the purpose of playing the game just outside the convention center, making transactions take longer.

Fortunately, Pokemon Go is very much a data sipper compared to straight-up internet browsing. Even the most heavily addicted user likely only racks up a few hundred MB over an entire month.

No, I mean what will be different at Gen Con.

GenCon is still taking place on planet Earth, so status quo.
