“We have now secured various bars amongst sheffield and have conjured up the best route for maximum pokemon and pokéstops with the odd sprinkle of gyms too.

“We are running the event on a Saturday to allow everyone to come along and also through the day so all ages can come along too. Make it a day out!

“It will take place in the city centre and will release the map at a later date.

“The usual bar crawl but with constant lures for the duration of the stop. As well as discounted drinks prices (alcohol/soft drinks) throughout Sheffield!

“A finale will be held at Game Over’s home for monthly events at Bloo88.

“What are YOU waiting for? Do you have the highest CP pokemon and want to join to take over gyms? Day out with the kids so they can catch lots of different pokemon?”
