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 .

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 .
Have fun out there !
