In just a few weeks, Pokémon Go has become the latest obsession those of us who grew up in the Gameboy generation, offering us a chance to go out into the world and become the very best, like no one ever was. To catch them all is our real test, and in New York City, that means trekking through tourist traps for a Charizard, snagging a Pidgeotto while grabbing a morning bagel and missing a train to catch a Ratata on the platform. With help from Gotham's finest Pokémon trainers, we've rounded up fifteen awesome Pokémon sightings in NYC.
