If you're not playing Pokémon Go, you may be one of the few. Even if you have no clue what you're doing (like me) it is still a little fun to be a Pokémon trainer. This morning there were about eight Pokémon in the WYRK studios alone!

Whether you're annoyed by it or not, it is getting people off the couch and out into the world. Yes, they still maybe looking at their phones but at least their step count is going up! I will say that if you are playing – pay attention to the world around you and not just to the one through your screen!

What is a Pokéstop?

If you're new to the game or just don't really know what you're doing, a Pokéstop can help you in your quest for more Pokémon. You'll normally find them attached to statues, churches, historic buildings and even public buildings; and they will be loaded with things like Pokéballs, snacks and other treats that will help you in your quest. Bottom line – this will help you NOT have to spend money to play the game.

So where are some of the hot Pokéstops in the Buffalo area?
