I have an issue with my community. I live in an island. We have about 160-180 members and about 30 gyms. I’ve done the math and we should have enough spots for every single member in the city I live. My problem is a group of 4 people inside the community who think they have the power to do whatever they want and be the big kahunas of the place. They do the following things:
- Chase people to know what team,level, what pokemons they have.
- Get all gyms blue because in their heads “The city should be blue”.
- Get vengeful when someone does something that in their eyes is unpleasant (like take a gym out, find an 100% and not sharing cus you just checked later or not feeling like sharing).
- Controling who does Ex-raid and who doesn’t ( lol)
- If you do a secondary account just for fun ( I mean an account that doesnt bother anyone else).
- Intimidate everyone who is in their way with verbal insults and false accusations. ( Therefore manipulating the whole community against those they don’t like)
My problem is I am annoyed by this type of people and don’t know what to do anymore. I try to avoid them all the time but I cant get the fully free satisfaction of playing the game because they are always making some drama or acting stupid with gyms. One time they went all near me and my bestfriend to scream at us because we didn’t tell them we had a secondary account, lol. My secundary account is just for the fun of it. Catching “new” pokemons to add to the pokedex and have some fun doing it.
I attended the last safari zone in dortmund, germany as such I made the favor to catch corsolas and unknows to a few close friends inside the community and since then all us (who went there or recieved a few pokemons) have been targets of bullying, from not letting us recieve coins, making us look like “crazy evil people” who dont help the community and are breaking it, basically they are accusing us to do the things that they do. Shaving, Controling people, Not supporting the community.
How do I deal with this? Honestly my first thought is just stop playing because I am not in the game for this kind of stress and drama but just to enjoy the experience of getting to know people, to have opportunities to travel more , catch pokemon and most importantly to have fun. I really don’t want to quit but if this keeps on going I might just quit. How do I deal with this?
Most people in the community by the way don’t care cus most of em play casually or don’t want to get into trouble.
Just what can I do?
