As Pokemon Go inspires users to explore community spaces, Christ United Methodist Church has seen increased amounts of foot traffic on campus, and staff members have been quick to make space for this wildly popular game within CUMC’s walls.
Launched at the beginning of July, Pokemon Go uses GPS technology to place creatures called Pokemon in real life locations making users physically seek them out in order to play the game. When Pokemon “Trainers” began showing up on CUMC’s campus, staff welcomed them with open arms.
Designated areas throughout the building offer space for players to rehydrate, charge their phones, and get out of the heat. Pokemon players are welcome during operating hours at CUMC’s Plano campus located at 3101 Coit Road, Plano.
Karen Ladany is CUMC’s Director of Communications.
