Pokemon GO Players Kayak Out To Sea For Gym Battle
The AR mobile game sees you tracking down Pokemon in the real world, with points of interest and landmarks on the map turned into Pokemon gyms.
One such gym exists in Wellington, New Zealand, and can be found by a fountain – which unfortunately for humans lies slap-bang in the middle of a large body of water.
Nevertheless, two plucky trainers used their Pokemon-based resolve and made their way into the harbour by kayak to take control of the gym.
I’m loving Pokemon GO, but I can barely motivate myself to head down the street to battle my local gym – these guys are what I aspire to be one day.
Mashable Australia discovered that these champions, named Kelsey Thomson and Lizzy Eden (both Team Blue), actually rented the kayak from another Pokémon Go player, who was on Team Yellow.
Unfortunately, Team Yellow soon reclaimed the elusive fountain gym, as Thomson said:
Team Yellow has a boat. One of them owns a boat, so that’s not fair.
So there’s one unforeseen upswing of Pokemon GO – boat rental is likely to see a sharp increase as trainers take to the high seas to do battle. Who could’ve guessed?
