If you haven’t heard of Pokemon Go we need to know what rock you’ve been hiding under. One of the most popular game apps of 2016 is Pokemon Go and there is no sign of this amazing craze going away. If you’re not sure what it is, it is a location-based game which encourages people to take their mobile device and hunt around to find Pokemon in their area, but what if you’re trying to be a Pokemon master and catch them all? Why not travel and catch them all? We’ve got the places you absolutely must visit if you want to travel the world while catching them all!
When Pokemon Go first came out, I admittedly wanted to see what the craze was about and within first opening it I found many pokestops at landmarks in my city that I didn’t even know existed. Imagine the possibilities when you take your phone on the road and start discovering landmarks that are becoming popular thanks to the Pokemon app.
Of course, as fun as the app is, there are some people out there who will take advantage. Just remember if you’re walking around an unfamiliar city with your phone out that it is incredibly easy to snatch your phone so be aware of your surroundings. But don’t let that ruin the travelling fun!
You might have seen the footage of everyone running in New York because a rare Pokemon spawned nearby? Yeah, it gets pretty crazy. Central Park is like the HQ of Pokestops and if find the perfect spot you’ll be sat in between 4 and we know that there will almost definitely be a lure on them so get past those pesky pidgey’s and you might even catch yourself a Pikachu in the Big Apple!
Basically everywhere in America
Okay so New York is the main place to visit, but we have to admit that there are some pretty amazing cities that are crawling with pokestops and pokemon to be caught. Seattle, Boston, San Francisco, Chicago and Washington D.C. are just a few examples; does this call for an American road trip?
Sydney’s beautiful harbours will be your favourite place if you play Pokemon Go. There are plenty of activities to do nearby while you’re chasing the Pokemon including kayaking around some of the most popular landmarks.
Pokemon Go was released in Germany and England at the same time and the Dutch found a loophole that you should definitely take advantage of. One of the best places to catch Pokemon is Zuiderpark in The Hague. You can sit back and listen to live music in the park which has gained the nickname of Pikachu Park… who wants to test the theory that it really is a Pikachu Park?
You really don’t need to go far to find some Pokemon but we know London is sprawling with Pokestops and if you head out on a nice weekend, we are sure that someone has placed a lure for you to take advantage of. Be sure to screenshot what you catch to show off to your friends and keep walking for those eggs!
If you didn’t have a desire to travel the world, the Pokemon Go App I’m sure will definitely convince you. There has reportedly only been one man who’s caught them all in the USA, so why not catch them all from all over the world?
