"Pokemon GO" is a pop culture event, and so we went out on the town in Los Angeles to see what kind of Pokemon were around and where they hang out. Click through the gallery to see a selection of those Pokemon we encounter this weekend.
This Mankey lurks in front of Disney's famous El Capitan movie theater on Hollywood Boulevard.
If you ever desperately need to find an Ekans (that's "snake" spelled backwards), be sure to check this alley off Wilshire Boulevard.
We encountered this terrifying Onyx outside of the old Gaylord Apartments building, which hopefully won't discourage us from visiting the HMS Bounty, one of our favorite watering holes, in the future.
Wilshire Boulevard in Koreatown is the place to be if you're a Growlithe.
Who would have thought this very nice neighborhood in Los Feliz would be infested with Golbats?
This Nidoran can't help but be a tourist on Hollywood Boulevard.
If traffic is backed up at Wilshire and Normandie, you can probably blame this Doduo.
I found this Sandshrew lurking around the corner from my apartment. Thankfully, he's been safely locked away in a Pokeball.
The historic TCL Chinese Theater is a true Hollywood landmark, and this Kabuto asked me to take its picture in front it.
This Machop couldn't decide which restaurant in this building to eat lunch at, so he just stood outside on the sidewalk next to it all day.
Geodudes just wanna hit stuff, and this one couldn't help trying, and failing, to put a dent in this Koreatown sidewalk.
This Starbucks on Vermont Avenue was absolutely infested with Pokemon, including this Sandshrew...
...and also this Machop.
This Growlithe wanted to see what was going on in the Gallery Theater at Barsndall Park, but they wouldn't let it inside.
This Meowth was elated to discover Danny DeVito's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
This Dratini was just enjoying the day up at Barnsdall Park -- the park has been a popular destination for burgeoning Pokemon trainers.
This Ekans was enjoying this scenic view of LA until I came along and tried to stuff it in a Pokeball.
Hey, even a Doduo likes to eat Korean BBQ every once in a while.
New to town, we found this Ekans sauntering down 6th Street in Koreatown, leisurely taking in the neighborhood.
This Machop is an avid reader of the Koreatown Daily, but was disappointed to find out he couldn't visit their offices.
That's me, sitting on a toilet I found on the sidewalk in Los Feliz, with a Growlithe in my lap.
