Pokémon Gyms

While not the most important aspect of the game, Pokémon Gyms add a whole new level of intricacy to the gameplay. Once you collect your Pokémon, you can head to Pokémon Gyms at real world locations to battle other local players for the right to own the gym. The most interactive aspect of the game, there are tons of gyms around Edmonton, including roughly six around Fort Edmonton Park.


PokéStops are probably the most important locations to remember when playing Pokémon Go. In order to catch Pokémon, you need to have a steady stock of Poké Balls, which you can only get by spending real world money or heading out to one of the many, many PokéStops in the world. Found at real world museums, statues and other landmarks, there are hundreds here in Edmonton, including a huge amount at the University of Alberta.

Pokémon Hot Spots

Pokémon hot spots are the hardest locations to pin down, as spawning is – for the most part – random. But certain rare Pokémon tend to hang around specific locations, and you can find those locations pinned in yellow on the interactive map below. For instance, you’ve got a pretty good chance of finding a Magmar at William Hawrelak Park.
