Good news to all you Pokémon trainers out there: we know you want to be the very best (like no one ever was), so today we’re launching a new feature and search filter to better help you catch ‘em all. We know you’re going to Diglett.
As you head into a weekend full of wild Zubats and Charmanders, remember to open up your Yelp app or search Yelp.com for businesses with a nearby PokéStop. To do this on mobile or desktop, simply search for a type of local business (“bars,” “restaurants,” etc.), swipe through the filter options at the top, hit “PokéStop Nearby,” and voilà! You can now find places to simultaneously run errands AND stock up on materials needed to catch that Eevee you’ve been eyeing.
In order to leave no PokéStop unturned, we need your help! To identify a business that’s in the vicinity of a PokéStop, check-in to that location on Yelp and answer a quick question to let fellow Yelpers and trainers know that this is the place they want to be. In just the past 24 hours, Yelpers have already identified thousands of PokéStops! With your help, we’ll become Pokémon masters in no time.
This feature is enabled on iOS and Android and is currently available in the U.S., U.K., Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Spain, and Italy.
Now get out there and catch the Snorlax of your dreams. Happy hunting!
