Pokémon Go Tip: If you are looking to specifically catch Voltrob and Magnemite, Times Square is the place to visit! Walk around a little and you may even find a Pikachu!
Right at Rockefeller Center, I encountered a Nidoran (Female) and other poison type Pokémon.
Bryant Park is one of the most popular Pokémon spots to visit in Midtown. Just a short walk from Times Square, this area is full of not only things to do but PokéStops! The park alone has at least 10 stops and even has its own Gym!
The park usually attracts a variety of types of Pokemon such as Grass, Ghost and Fairy Types. It’s known to always have Golbats! During my recent visit to the park, I was able to catch Haunter, Clefairy and Bulbasaur!
Central Park is THE location to catch all types of Pokémon. Grass, Water, Fire, you name it this location has it! I caught my first Psyduck, Charmander and Squirtle at this location! Key PokéStops to go to in the park are Wollman Rink and the Great Lawn. Back when the game first launched, players went crazy when a wild Charizard was found there!
Battery Park is a popular location to catch water type Pokémon! The rare Pokemon sightings you may encounter at this location include Squirtle, Magikarp and Dratini. While you are at this location, you might as well take a cruise to the Statue of Liberty!
Macy’s Herald Square
Whether you are visiting or have some time during you lunch break, you can catch Pokémon at Macy’s Herald Square! Shopping plus catching Pokémon definitely sounds like a fun day in the city. While heading from Macy’s to Times Square one day, I was able to catch a Polywag!
