Raleigh Typhoon Scavenger Hunt Pokémon GO Competition

For the past 10 years, the Raleigh Typhoon Downtown Raleigh Scavenger Hunt has been a battle of wits and skill between locals who think they know Raleigh best. Now, as Pokémon GO takes Raleigh by storm, we’re looking high and low for Raleigh’s best Pokémon trainers during a special competition as part of this year’s Raleigh Typhoon on Saturday, July 30!

Read on to learn more about forming and competing against other teams to catch Pokémon for prizes during this year’s Raleigh Typhoon. The best part: 100% of proceeds from Raleigh Typhoon benefit Activate Good, a local charity that connects volunteers to help over 340 causes in the Triangle.


How to join the Raleigh Typhoon Pokémon GO competition (Please read everything carefully!):
