After Pokemon Go was released last week it became an instant hit to both Teenagers and adults. It is a free-to-play location-based augmented reality mobile game developed by Niantic and published by The Pokémon Company as part of the Pokémon franchise.
But the intriguing part is yet to come. It is reported that the Salt Lake City Temple, the Logan Temple, and the Bountiful Tabernacle are all Pokémon GO gyms.
According to Polygon, Gym locations are suspected to be selected based off another GPS-centric game,Ingress. Players have noticed that the locations of many, but not all, of the portals from Ingress are PokéStops or gyms in Pokémon GO.
The player does not need to enter inside the temple or church buildings just to battle with the Gym Leader, they just need to be close enough for the GPS to recognize the said place.
Have you notice any LDS Chapels or Temples that was also turned into Pokemon Go Gyms? If yes share it us and comment the church building location below.
