Revelstoke, watch out for mindless zombies walking around, staring at their phones, lost in a world of strange creatures.
Pokemon Go, the ridiculously popular mobile video game, is now available in Canada, and the creatures can be found in numerous Revelstoke locations.
I only took a cursory look at the game and so far I don’t quite understand it. I caught something called a Bulbasaur at the Revelstoke Review office, but I don’t know if we’re an actual Pokemon stop, or if it was just a tutorial.
There’s a Pokemon gym at the cenotaph and the Revelstoke Lodge, Revelstoke Museum and Cube Hostel are also locations in the game.
One interesting phenomenon is small businesses taking advantage of being a Pokemon stop to attract customers. We’d be interested to hear from any local businesses using the game as a promotional tool.
If you’re playing the game, let us know what you find in town in the comments below.
