Pokémon Go Is Making Scottish Companies Act Really Strangely
A taxi company are running a "Pokétour" of Edinburgh; a Glasgow shopping centre has introduced special "Pokélanes". What the hell is going on?
Central Taxis in Edinburgh has introduced a £15 "Pokétour" service just in time for the city's annual arts festival.
The company's IT apprentice came up with the idea (and the route) as he's a massive Pokémon Go fan.
But you can't flag down just any cab and ask for the tour.
You'll also be able to access useful facts and information about Edinburgh as you're driven around.
It's not just Central Taxis, either. Lots of other Scottish businesses are jumping on the trend.
There's also a shopping centre in Aberdeen that has introduced "human charge points" for mobile phones.
Oh, and there's a garden centre in Gourock that has turned Pokéhunting into a competition.
Anyone who shares a picture of a Pokémon caught at the centre gets entered into a daily prize draw.
Several people have already taken part in the hope of landing one of Cardwell's lucrative £5 café gift vouchers. Just think of all the scones you could buy for that.
