Gauteng Pokémon GO players strut their stuff in style at Montecasino

Pokémon GO certainly has taken the world by storm. In fact, you’d probably find it extremely difficult to avoid any sort of news related to this international phenomenon. This past Saturday saw thousands of South Africans congregating at various locations across the country for a fun-filled, family friendly day of Pokémon hunting.

We were lucky enough to attend the Johannesburg edition of the event at Monte Casino, which attracted over five hundred of Gauteng based enthusiasts. Although the turnout was less impressive than the horde that converged on Sea Point Promenade, the atmosphere and general vibe made it feel like thousands were in attendance.

The event was organized by Quinton de Bruyn, the creator of the PokemonGO RSA community page on Facebook. His vision for the page is that of a helpful, family friendly space to learn more about the game and to "break the social barriers by bringing together unfit, fit, professional, unprofessional, young and old".

If the Joburg Hunt was anything to go by, then it’s definitely mission accomplished for Quinton. It was really heart-warming to see such a wide variety of people at the event, and a great testament to how gaming can bring people from all walks of life together. To get a taste of what the event was like, and to listen to the rest of the interview with Quinton, then checkout the video below!
