Pokémon Go is a free to play, location based augmented reality mobile game. Once the app is downloaded players use their GPS location to search and collect Pokémon characters. There are 'Pokey stops' which are similar to a Pokémon shop and 'Pokémon Gyms' where players can battle the characters they've collected - and Dumbleyung has two of each!
To the blind eye you wouldn't know when you stand at the Dumbleyung War memorial or the Farming History display on Absolon Street that these locations are also a 'Pokè Stop'. Finding these locations requires the player to walk around until it is shown on their map. Local youth Daniel Jacobs, said he has walked over 10kms in the past three days and found almost 30 Pokémon characters.
For gamers the kilometres of walking pays off when you capture a rare Pikachu like the character spotted at the Stubbs Park entrance. Originally released in America, Australia and New Zealand the game has gone viral and was released in Europe this week.
To find out more, download the app and try the game yourself or keep an eye out for Pokémon Go players in Dumbleyung - you won't miss them as they'll be head down and following the path their phone takes them.
