El Paso Zoo Inundated with Pokémon, Asking Public’s Help in Catching ‘Em All
Lions, Tigers, and ... Pokémon?! Wait, what?
Apparantly the El Paso Zoo has been invaded by the invasive species, so they're asking Pokemon trainers of all ages and levels to help "catch 'em all" this Saturday evening.
The special after hours event has been dubbed Pokémon Safari Nights, and according to the zoo's website, there are a lot of the virtual reality creatures mixing among the real live animals -- including water Pokémon and several rare Pokémon that only hang out at the Zoo in the evening.
For $10, this Saturday, August 13, you can locate, catch, and battle the virtual characters from 6 to 10 p.m. while learning more about the zoo and its animals.
Of course, zoo staff can’t control which Pokémon will want to battle it out, but they can (and will) provide free Wi-Fi and charging stations, and drop some lures. Word is they'll drop two lures in two locations every 15 minutes from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Twenty (20) extra lures will be dropped at secret locations throughout the Zoo.
In addition to the lures, the zoo also has its own Gym and 17 Poké stops.
Enjoy El Paso's cooler evening weather while playing with other Pokémon Go fans this Saturday. Who knows what level you’ll be on by the end of the night.
