It seems like the Pokemon GO madness isn’t going to die down anytime soon. On Thursday 28th July, thousands of people gathered in Madrid’s Puerta del Sol (pretty much the equivalent of our Trafalgar Square) to catch Pokemon, breaking all records of previous events held in Tokyo, London, New York and Sydney. The event’s organiser chose Puerta del Sol as the meeting point because the plaza has two “gyms” where players can train and fight their Pokemon.
The huge meet up of around 5,000-7,000 eager trainers was organised by the Spanish start-up, Fever – the events discovery app based in major cities across Spain, New York and, of course, London. Niantic, the creators of Pokemon GO, are now considering the Spanish capital for the release of the first “Legendary” Pokémon. Sorry London poke trainers – you’re going to have to up your game.
