Pokémon Go is a highly popular location based, augmented reality game by Niantic. In the game, players use a mobile device’s GPS capability to locate, capture, battle, and train virtual creatures, called Pokémon, who appear on the screen as if they were in the same real-world location as the player. The game was released in the beginning of July and it’s a wildly popular global phenomenon.
In the game you have ‘Pokestops’. These locations can be churches, landmarks, notable buildings and they also feature a lot of graffiti and street art too. At these stops a picture of the location pops up as a spinable disk where players can get free items, which they need to keep on playing the game. I have noticed an increasing amount of artists putting screenshots on their social media channels of their work used in the game as Pokestops. Take a look at just some of the artists featured.
Pokémon Go is available on iOS and on Android.
