Ever since the launch of Pokémon Go in early July, your kids have most likely been wandering around the local park with their eyes on their mobile device, trying to catch “rare” Pokémon, all the while trying to convince you of the wonderful benefits (We’re outside! We’re getting exercise!) of the digital phenomenon. We feel you. But instead of fighting the viral location-based game, we’re trying to embrace it, by adding on some Poké-fun to our next vacation.
From Arizona to New Zealand, it turns out, Pikachu and friends are showing up in family-friendly hotels and resorts all around the world (not to mention the parks and shops near them). While we’re not saying to plan a family vacation based solely on capturing an elusive Magnemite, you might just become the coolest parent ever if you just happen to mention there’s a Meowth hanging in the lobby of your Orlando hotel.
Here a few spots around the country who have mapped out their Poké guests. Happy hunting!
