I'm doing daily the 'school run' earlier, with my 14 year old son and he casually says.. 'You know what Dad - Coventry's really brilliant for rare pokemon go spawning'. Er, what? 'Yeah - all the history, old buildings, churches and stuff - means it's way better than other places we've been to'.
Right, um, ok. So I get home and take a look on-line, and guess what - he's correct. The algorithm they use apparently seeks out places globally with the highest density of noteworthy landmarks and interesting 'things' - and 'spawns' the rarest pokemon characters so as to entice players into cultural enrichment (or something like that - probably more to do with it latching to what google has historically 'tagged' as worth visiting). Anyhow, there's even a page on Coventry City Council's website dedicated to showing you the real-time status of 'hotspots and gyms' (sorry, I've no idea what that actually means).
So why is this relevant to a city guide?
Well, in our experience - if your kids are having fun, chances are you will be too!
