The lovely Pokemon Go players have created a community to help each other out, and part of this has been the creation of the most epic map since Google Earth. Not only does it list Pokestops and Pokemon Gyms, but people (players? Pokemon Masters? What is the preferred term?) have been kind enough to put in details about where they’ve found Pokemons. 

Melbourne CBD

Some key areas around Melbourne include the State Library, Flinders Street Station and Flagstaff Gardens in the CBD. While you’re there, stop into Journal Cafe for a coffee…… refuel and you never know, you might get more than just a coffee.  While you might not win big at the Crown, you could win big in Pokemons, as lots have been spotted around there. 


If you’re sticking Northside, try your luck at True North in Coburg and Casa Ciuccio near the Carlton Gardens. Brunswick is a hotspot so grab some pizza from 400 Gradi on your way around. Free Friday afternoon? Grab some friends and head to this Pokemon event. Check out Richmond as well, and while you’re there, take a refueling break at Three One 2 One for what’s probably a much-needed sugar hit. 


If you’re more of a Southside only player, try your luck in Camberwell and Hawthorn East—we hear that they’re crawling with Pokemons. And you can’t go past Legacy, Axil or Bawa for a pit stop. Malvern East is full of Pokemons and Pokestops so while you’re around Malvern, check out Sagra—their new menu is 10/10 and great for fuelling up as you continue your hunt. We hear that south from Mordialloc, all along the bayside there’s Pokestops, so make sure you fuel up at Hendriks Cafe or YOMG so that you can properly devote your attention to hunting. Head on down to Frankston today for a Pokemon Walk—we’d recommend some heavy duty rain gear though.

The Rest...

Those over the West Gate Bridge, we hear Hoppers Crossing and Altona are hot spots. There’s also been a couple of sightings in Footscray and Carline Springs. Pop in to the brand new Hellenic Hotel while you’re there for the latest in Greek delights from George Calombaris. 

We hear that Evee is big in Pakenham.  Pokemons must like doing 1000 Steps as Ferntree Gully is now a spot for Pokemons and Pokemon gyms. Check out The Cellar Door by the Public Brewery for some celebratory drinks and eats after finding some Pokemons, or pop into Hey Mikey Espresso to refuel on coffee and jaffles. 

Can’t make the walk in Frankston today for the walk? Just wait until Saturday and you can join in on your own Melbourne walk and a Pokemon party. And if you can’t make it on Saturday and can’t wait until the Pokemon party, check out Pokemon Go Journey. Pokemon trainers, there’s now a monthly event for you guys to go and join.
