Catch 'em all at Te Puia
Battle it out and catch 'em all amongst Te Whakarewarewa Valley’s shooting geysers and bubbling mud pools as Te Puia becomes the ultimate battlefield for Pokémon masters.
The Pokémon Go app allows players to find Pokémon using a GPS signal. When the player closes in on one, the device's camera turns on, showing the Pokémon in "real life".
“Te Puia has evolved into a massive hunting ground for the iconic Pokémon creatures where visitors can check in to the three gyms and nine stops on site,” says Te Puia online market manager, Eruera West.
“Te Puia is a natural haven and the ideal environment to go after these critters on your way to becoming a Pokémon master, with 60 hectares of geothermal wonderland to explore and a couple Pokémon already calling Te Puia home.
“There are three Pokémon Gyms, where trainers can train their Pokémon and battle other teams and nine PokéStops, which players can physically visit to stock up on free accessories and items like PokéBalls.
“We’re not just a geothermal hot spot, we’re a Pokémon hot spot too where you can boost your collection and train them up – so have you got what it takes to catch ‘em all?”
