See Pokemon Come to Life on the Wall of a Shopping Centre

Don't use Rock Smash
Pokémon games work best in the palm of your hand: built for portable gaming, they're suited to the small screen, but that doesn't mean we can't see the creatures on a much grander scale. Over at Berlin's Wilmersdorfer Arcaden shopping centre, the pocket monsters broke free of the confines of the small screen to terrorise passers-by with a light projection display.
The interactive game took place on Saturday 19th March and featured Pokémon including Serpifeu, Ottaro and Floink, the German names for Snivy, Oshawott and Tepig, who were also in attendance in giant big-headed suit form. It's not entirely clear what the purpose of the game itself was, but presumably "catching them all" was somewhere on the agenda.
If you were there, we want to hear from you and see your photos too.
