If you have seen blackboard signs in front of restaurants, pubs or bars saying it is a poke stop and wondered what it meant, you are probably an alien or you have been living in a cave away from civilization this month. Pokemon Go has taken the world by storm. A location-based video game, Pokemon has made travellers out of gamers! A fantastic way to boost travel yet keep the entertainment on. So read on to find out the best poke stops across the globe, which double as super awesome travel destinations.
And surprise! As I write this post, Pokemon has a new champion in the USA, someone who has caught all 142 Pokemon available in the country! What’s more? It has forced locals to discover intriguing landmarks; earlier they were oblivious to their existence. As the world travels to find the likes of Pikachu and Eevee, let’s see the best locations from both the worlds- travel and gaming!
Find out the Best Poke Stops across the globe:
Circular Quay, Sydney
The Opera House “gym” is a huge attraction here not to mention what a huge draw it already is outside the world of Pokemon. The gyms in Pokemon are usually the places where they are trained, or fights happen. The place has plenty to keep you busy. A stunning attraction in Sydney, where you can spend your entire day swiping, eating, or people watching!
The happiest place on earth just got happier. A Pokemon hot spot has lures ( baits for Pokemon) all over the park, and the very happening Sleeping Beauty Castle is a top tier gym for privileged players. Enough reasons for a trip, right?
Big Ben, London
London’s historic buildings have a new identity. They are all well known Poke stops and the Big Ben is, of course, a “gym”. Collect Poke balls or Pokemon and fight it out at the gym in Big Ben. London is full of places to attract Poke hunters.
Central Park, New York
The shaded roads of Central Park, which is famous among tourists for leisurely strolls and among locals for jogs and walks, are now popular with gamers too. Pokemon. Watch the Pidgey (a Pokemon) fly around while you see some real ones too!
The Colosseum, Rome
Don’t be surprised if you see tons of tourists walking near Colosseum with their eyes on their phone screen. The Colosseum is still a crowd puller no wonder, but more some different reason. Poke hunters are looking for Pikachu, Squirtle and Oddish while they explore this Roman phenomenon.
Get the cute Pokemon characters evolution if you want to catch them at the ancient Stonehenge. Find Eevee or a few Venonats around in this adventurous gym.
Taj Mahal, India
Oh yes! The mausoleum of love is not much behind when it comes to Pokemon hunting. It has been conquered by little creatures too. Zubats will appear here too.
