Pokemon Go takes over Ramsbottom
You might be out enjoying Northern Grip festival today, but you would have had to have been living under a rock to have not heard the words Pokemon and Go uttered together in the past few weeks. The game has not only taken the world by storm, it’s also taken Ramsbottom by storm. How do I know this? Well, I was out in Ramsbottom *cough* researching Pokemon Go when I came across a group of lads playing it, then I turned the corner, and what seemed to be the whole of the smoking corner from the Grey Mare were playing.
I did have a fairly scary encounter, I was heading towards St Andrews Church, which if you’re not aware is a Pokemon Gym (essentially a place where you can take control of it for your team). It was dark, and I was alone. I rounded the corner to be met by around 6 glowing lights all heading towards me. No, it wasn’t a supernatural encounter, it turned out, I wasn’t the only one headed to St Andrew’s Church that night to play Pokemon Go.
