Security has been tight around the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia during this week’s Democratic National Convention. But the law enforcement officers and police still haven’t been able to keep the Pokemon out.
The virtual creatures at the heart of the mobile game craze Pokemon Go seem plentiful around the convention site. The area around the Wells Fargo Center also is home to Pokemon Go PokeStops - where players can pick up supplies - and the center itself is a Pokemon Go gym, where players can compete.
Pokemon also can be found at the protests in Philadelphia. A police officer near one of the protests noted that playing Pokemon Go was permitted near the protests.
“You can stay on the corner and play Pokemon Go,” he said.
