Le Parfait Paris

With Pokémon Go mania officially sweeping the country (and soon the world!) this summer’s most unexpected craze has well and truly hit San Diego. Budding trainers looking to hunt Pokémon, recharge at PokéStops or train their catch at designated Poké "gyms" (where players can battle it out with others and level up their Pokémon) should check out the ten bars and restaurants below.

Got a tip? From Bulbasaurs, Goldeens and Poliwags to Pikachu himself, which characters have you caught with your meal and where? Leave suggestions in the comments section below.

Pokémon Go players in Kearny Mesa might be interested to know Tajima’s Convoy location has Pokémon lurking around their dragon mural. Where better to fuel up on ramen while you hunt for Mewtwo?

Burnside

Copy Link

For those wishing to enjoy BBQ-influenced bites and PBR tallboys while summoning Sandshrew, head to Burnside where the team has reported seeing Pokémon on-premise.

Pizza Port

Copy Link

The prime spot for a slice and a cold one in Solana Beach has also recently became something of a Pokémon hotspot, where you could find a lurking Mankey, Metapod and more.

Le Parfait Paris

Copy Link

Pokémon characters that enjoy fine patisseries have made an appearance at Le Parfait Paris’ downtown location, but we have it one good authority that Liberty Public Market (where they also have a stand) is full of Pokémon characters.

Rancho Bernardo Inn

Copy Link

If you’re searching for Pokémon in North County we hear you could catch them all at Rancho Bernardo Inn. Hunt down Pikachu, Ivysaur and the rest of the gang hidden among the 265-acre property's restaurants, swimming pools, multiple fountains and biking trails.

Horton Plaza Park

Copy Link

Dedicated Pokémon Go players roaming downtown should stop by Horton Plaza Park to round up a few more Pokémon, including the Sandshrew or the Mankey. There are several adjacent PokéStops too, like the Balboa Theater, Horton Walk and Historic Fountain. Don't forget to reenergize with a Sloan’s Ice Cream after battling it out at the PokéGym.

Summon Diglett and Dratini while chomping on some tasty tacos at the headquarters where the Puesto team have reported Pokémon sightings by the fountain (in front of the old Kitson store) just across the way.

Hotel del Coronado

Copy Link

A trip to Coronado (we hear the Crown City is crawling with them!) will prove rewarding for dedicated Pokémon Go players who can obtain pokéballs, eggs and little treats at various locations around the property including the garden patio, the Hotel del Coronado fountain and clock.

Liberty Station

Copy Link

The parks and promenades of Liberty Station are a hotbed for Pokémon and play host to a plethora of Pokéspots. Fittingly, Point Loma Sports Club is a Pokémon Gym, while Stone Brewing has been attracting Pokémon with a lure, based on packed in players at the tasting room.

Rip Current Brewing

Copy Link

It’s been reported that Rip Current Brewing in North Park has two PokéStops right outside. Catch certain Pokémon and take a picture of them inside the brewery to receive money off your brews.
