Corpus Christi Fun for Kids Pokémon Go Area Family Fun

Wednesday, July 13, 2016
Unless you've been living under a rock (type Pokémon), you've probably heard about the latest Pokémon Go craze taking over the country!  Corpus Christi is no exception.  In just a short amount of time people of all ages have discovered the fun that the mobile app provides (including getting outside and walking around). There are little kids playing with their parents, teens with their friends, adults, and even our senior citizens joining in the fun!  It's been so nice to see our community come together and hearing positive news like people are being more active and interacting with each other.

I've had fun walking around our neighborhood or driving around catching Pokémon and hitting the Poké Stop. Don't worry, I drive while my 8 year old is doing the catching. She loves how they "jump" in the car.  My teen daughter is doing it too, going out to the popular Cole Park and Watergardens stops to catch them.

Not sure what Pokémon Go is all about?  Our friends at San Antonio Mom Blogs have an excellent guide for parents that explains all about what it is as well as has some handy tips and precautions! Lifehacker also has A Parent’s Guide to Playing Pokémon Go With Your Kids.

Local area businesses and organizations have also jumped in on the fun with some cool events for all you Pokémon trainers. We've got some here and we will be adding to this list as they're updated.  There are some un-official events but those are usually very late in the evening so we didn't include those.  Want to add your event?  Let us know! If you want to use the information found here, please be courteous and link back to this site. Compiling is hard work!
