The latest craze taking the world by storm is none other than the virtual reality app called Pokémon Go! People of all ages are taking to the streets to search, find, and catch Pokémon on their smart phones. In order to catch these Pokémon, one must visit Pokéstops, where you can receive Pokéballs (What is used to capture Pokémon). If you are a level five trainer then you can battle other trainers at “gyms.” There are Pokémon, Pokéstops, and Gyms all throughout the city and some places are more popular for Pokémon than others. Here are seven popular Pokémon places in Louisville, KY.

UofL has an abundance of Pokéstops throughout its campus. Lures are placed on Pokéstops in this area extremely often, so Pokémon are spotted everywhere. Lures can be bought and placed on Pokéstops to attract Pokémon to that area. The campus also has roughly six gyms, where you can battle your Pokémon.
