Welcome back to 1998 everyone! That was the year Pokemon was released in the United States for Game Boy under the slogan “Gotta Catch ’em All!” (Truly one of the most iconic phrases still to this day.) (Ed Note.  Pokemon was released in Japan in 1996, same year Master Blaster opened. Coincidence? We think not!)

Now in 2016, The Nintendo/Pokemon Gods have come together to release a game called Pokemon Go, where phone users can use the game to become “Pokemon Trainers” and catch “Pokemon.”

It would take an entire blog post to explain the greatness that is Pokemon Go and how you can use it, but I’ll go ahead and let Buzzfeed explain it with further detail.

Now, let’s get to the real reason you’re here.

Guide to Pokemon Go  at Schlitterbahn New Braunfels:

As a Pokemon Trainer, you must always know where all the Poke Stops are just in case you run out of poke balls or want to find some eggs. Think of it as one of your home bases where you can go recharge for the a quick second. Below are the current Poke Stops at Schlitterbahn New Braunfels*:

We also have a handful of gyms that trainers can visit, where you can train all the Pokemon you’ve caught while visiting the park*. (Disclaimer: The author of this blog post is a faithful member of Team Mystic.)
