A User’s Guide to Finding PokéStops on the LSU Shreveport Campus

August 24, 2016

Pokémon, a twenty-year-old phenomenon, has escalated in popularity in recent years in the form of video games and the recently popular Pokémon Go game app. The franchise is making waves with its colorful and diverse array of characters in areas like movies, TV shows, toys, clothing, and décor. The popularity explosion of the new and addictive game, Pokémon Go, features a game screen of Google Maps on your smart phone where players can actually walk around neighborhoods, stores, museums, and parks to catch Pokémon characters in the game. But did you realize that people are on the LSU Shreveport campus daily to find, trap, lure, and snare these charming characters?

Pokémon Go may be another chain in the successful franchise where fans can capture interesting characters, train and evolve them, and compete in Poké battles, but the game also offers players the chance to travel to historic monuments, explore the world around them, and meet new friends.
