TO THE ZOO Need to catch a few more eevees to make that next evolution? Still haven’t found a krabby yet? Whether you’re Team Instinct, Mystic or Valor, the Louisville Zoo is a great place to take your next big “Pokémon Go” adventure. The Pokémon phenom has taken the Zoo by storm, but before you begin your journey to “catch ‘em all,” we’ve got some great tips for playing at the Zoo— recommended by the best Pokémon trainers we could find! To catch the best Pokémon, you’re going to need to be in tip-top shape. Be prepared before you head off to the Zoo. Make sure you have: • comfortable walking shoes • a big refillable bottle of water • sunscreen • a portable battery charger You’re going to be doing a lot of walking and “Pokémon Go” can quickly deplete your phone’s battery life. Be sure to bring a few portable battery chargers if you plan to hunt for a long time. Take it from the expert trainers — you’ll want to stick around! After trekking the Zoo, your feet may need a rest. Here’s another great tip from our expert trainers: the Zoo train and tram both move slowly enough that riding will allow you to incubate your eggs! The train ride spans a total of 1.25 miles, passing more than 10 Pokéstops along the way. Pokémon trainers have caught everything from bulbasaurs to scythers just by riding the train. You can purchase tickets at the Train/ Tram Station — which just happens to have a Pokéstop nearby. Tip: the Zoo train and tram both move slowly enough that riding will allow you to incubate your eggs! Catching Pokémon can make a trainer very hungry, so you’ll want to scope out a great place for lunch. Try the Lakeside Smokehouse or the outdoor seating of the African Outpost. Both areas are nice shady spots with accessible Pokémon stops nearby! If you install a lure module, you can reap the benefits of collecting lots of Pokémon while you enjoy a tasty meal or recharge with a beverage. Add the use of a lucky egg and you’ll be rolling in Pokémon while gaining twice the experience points! Now that you have all these cool new Pokémon, you’ll probably want to see them in action. Head over to the Pokémon gym near the Conservation Carousel, purchase a ticket and take a ride while you train up your Pokémon. Need a little more time at the gym? Plot a gym takeover while relaxing in one of the Zoo massage chairs nearby. The Louisville Zoo houses over 30 Pokéstops and four gyms; so it’s a treasure trove of Pokémon balls, razz berries, eggs and other great loot in almost every area of the Zoo. All of the Pokéstops are safely accessible from public walkways, so be sure to respect all barriers, stay on marked pathways and avoid restricted areas. Also, don’t forget to keep aware of your surroundings! You don’t want to be on the injured Pokémon Trainers’ list for colliding with packs of kiddos and parents. How embarrassing! One last tip: while you’re tracking down the next Pokémon, don’t forget to look up and check out the amazing real life species on exhibit that are part of our collection. They’re pretty incredible.
