Pokémon Go was released in the UK this week and the Library twitter account revealed yesterday that our beloved Sydney Jones has been chosen as one of the city’s Pokémon Gyms. (where you can go to battle your Charmanders against someone else’s Rattatas).

The augmented reality game lets users find and catch Pokémons across the country, and battle them at the gyms against other users

From the screenshot posted by the Library, it appears there is one other Gym on Campus but that it isn’t the Harold Cohen. The Guild is only a Pokestop.

A facebook page  has also been set up for the Liverpool and Merseyside Pokemon Trainers, giving new trainers insights into where different Pokemon have been spotted and caught in the area. Locations include Porygon’s spawning around Chinatown and Tentacruels, Growlithes and Wartortles near the docks.

New twitter pages have also been set up, giving insights and locations to trainers. Rumour has it the elusive Pikachu has also been spotted in the city.
