The latest strange place to be made a Pokestop is now this sex shop on Plymouth, Devon. The amazingly-named ‘Private Shop’ is apparently now getting loads of eager trainers coming in looking for Pokeballs.
If your mind isn’t blown by the knowledge that your normal every day surroundings are now home to pocket monsters of all shapes and sizes, what exactly did your idea of the future look like?
Local landmarks and points of interest – shops, statues, places of worship – also double as pokestops for supplies, and gyms where you can train Pokémon for battle.
These appear to be pretty arbitrarily chosen, as the Holocaust Museum and Westboro Baptist Church have found out.
The game has been available in the UK for the past week through patches or fooling the Apple app store into thinking you’re in a different location, and intrepid British Pokémon trainers have wasted no time in going forth in their quests to catch ’em all.
Which has taken quite a few people in Plymouth to a gym on Princess Road. Which also happens to be a charming looking sex shop…
A member of staff told the Plymouth Herald that foot traffic has definitely been up in the last week because of people asking about Pokémon.
