Zech Pugh was dressed as Ash Ketchum, the protagonist of the "Pokemon" animated series, Wednesday at McEuen Park, fully prepared to continue on his quest to be the best Pokemon trainer there ever was.
"Every time I go out, I'm dressed like this," Pugh, 20, said. "It's my Pokemon gear."
More than 100 other trainers, all fans of the hit smartphone game "Pokemon Go," joined Pugh at the park for a meetup and trash pickup drive organized through Facebook. Trainers of all ages were welcome at the Avista Pavillion, and there was the incentive of extra raffle tickets provided to those who filled their garbage bags with trash while walking through downtown or along Tubbs Hill/Keith Cousins, Coeur d'Alene Press.
