Pokemon Go players reflect on their journeys with the game since the very first day of the games launch back in 2016.

With Pokemon Go ramping up events for its 7th Anniversary, many trainers are looking back at how far they’ve come. There are many players who started Pokemon Go on day one that are still very active in the community even after seven years.

Fans Reminisce On The Past 7 Years With Pokemon Go

The user that started the discussion on Twitter shared a photo of how far they have walked with Pokemon Go which is 10,177.7 km. Another player at the very top of the comment list told people that it is okay if you weren’t a part of the game the very first day, that Pokemon Go is your journey, so be proud of it.

Another user has been a member since day one and said the single day they missed playing the game was when the app was experiencing some difficulties allowing trainers to sign in. Scrolling through the comments, we see a huge community of players coming together that started the game on day one, which is an amazing site to see as a lot of the time, the day-one players seem to disappear after a while.
