Pokémon Go is here!
You’ve been exploring neighbourhoods to catch wild Pokémon in alleyways, parks and shops around Scotland since the new gaming app was released.
Found Jigglypuff in a corner of your bedroom? Sandshrew at the post office? It’s time to catch them all, all over the country.
Here’s how each city is coping with the Pokémon craze.
In Glasgow, the city’s own Pikachu [mascot of Glasgow University Pokemon Society] has been out and about helping you catch rogue Pokémon.
So many Sakura in Glasgow Uni😍😍😍Glasgow Spring 🌸🌸🌸#pikaglasgow #pikachuinglasgow #pokemon #pikachu #pokeball #nintendo #games #ukig #anime #cartoon #cute #glasgow #scotland #uk #uofglasgow #photo #pokeballs #FF #instafollow #l4l #tagforlikes #like #instagram #ig #ピカチュウ #比卡超 #uofgspring #sakura #spring #Glaswow
Some of you have based your days out around hunting.
"Mum just going to Glasgow for the day" "you going shopping?" "Well no but you get better Pokemon in cities" #priorities

Edinburgh prices, as always, getting in the way of the good stuff.
So someone has claimed Edinburgh Castle on Pokemon Go and you've got to spend £18 to go in and battle them

Romantic dates will never be the same.
Today David asked me if I wanted to walk around Edinburgh… Half way through I realise he just wanted to catch more Pokemon.

Bars are cashing in on their super rare Pokémon. There’s a Snorlax at Sportsters!
Buzzfeed correspondent Jamie Ross is going off-grid to catch them all.
I'm off for a week so I'm turning off Twitter. If you need me, I'll be walking around Edinburgh catching Pokemon.

The weather is against Pokémon catchers in the frozen north.
I see @Pokemon GO players battling Mother Nature in Aberdeen

It’s not just a hotbed for academic learning…
stirling uni: pokemon breeding ground

Unlike Edinburgh, this castle is open for Pokémon business without the hefty hashtag.
Stirling Castle is stuffed with Pokemon. Can't move for them.

Pokémon addiction is no laughing matter. You Mewtwo could get lost in deepest Dundee.
I'm scared to get Pokemon GO incase it takes over my life and I forget to eat and end up in Dundee trying to catch a mewtwo #PokemonGO

The pain of waiting for fresh 3G is real.
Soon as I get data you'll be seeing me galavanting round Dundee trying to catch Pokemon on my phone.
