Sokcho has become home to rare Pokémon, including Pikachu and Farfetch'd. In fact, the city located close to the border with North Korea is the only place in the world where the latter can be caught.
Unsurprisingly, New York City with its countless landmarks that serve as gyms where players can battle with other Pokémon "trainers" came second. Times Square, Brooklyn Bridge Park, the New York City HQ of Nintendo, the Empire State Building and Central Park are some of the no-brainer locations to catch and train cutesy characters, as well as socialize with other players.
By the way, Pikachu is rumored to be waiting for you at the corner of 14th Street and Ninth Avenue.
Tokyo, the home city of the Pokémon universe, has been named as the third best option for Pokémon Go aficionados.

Pokémon "trainers" in Europe need not worry since Rome offers ample opportunity to play the game and explore the Eternal City's world-famous landmarks. Some have even claimed that the much-coveted Arceus, sometimes referred to as the Original One, has been hiding in Vatican City, but no one has spotted the virtual monster said to have created the Pokemon universe there so far.
Other top destinations, according to the Russian Tour Operators' Association, include San Francisco, Oakland, Sydney, Honolulu, London, Wolfsburg and Vienna.
