Gotta Catch ’em All in London!

To celebrate today’s launch of Pokémon GO in the UK we’re running a very special competition for all the budding Pokémon trainers in London! For a chance to win £50 in vouchers and a Pokémon/ Tube Map goody bag, we want you to share screenshots of you catching Pokémon in London and share them with us on Facebook or Twitter. We’ll choose our favourite screenshot from all entries on Facebook and Twitter. Let’s Pokemap London!

Here’s how it works:

  • Take a screenshot while looking at a Pokémon in Pokémon GO. (Either do this using the in-game camera button or by taking a screenshot with your mobile device.)
  • Share it with us and complete the phrase “I caught a Pokémon at…
  • To enter on Facebook, reply to our competition post and include the screenshot in your comment.
  • To enter on Twitter, tweet the screenshot and mention @TubeMapLondon at the end.

What’s the Prize?

The winner will receive £50 in vouchers of their choosing and a Tube Map goody bag that will include a Pokémon surprise.

Top Tip

When deciding the winner we’ll be looking for London landmarks like Big Ben or famous icons like the Underground roundel, so get creative with your positioning. You might spot a Psyduck by the Thames or maybe a Drowsee in the Shard. We’ve also heard that Zubats have been spotted on the Tube!

Stay Safe!

We want to see some good shots but not if it means you swimming in the Thames or stepping into traffic at Trafalgar Square. We don’t encourage anyone to trespass or put themselves in danger for the sake of a photo. This is especially important when using the Tube or other forms of transport. Stay behind the yellow line when on a Tube or train platform, be aware of your surroundings and please be respectful of those around you.
