St. Peter’s Square happens to be a hot spot for #PokemonGo

Look who pops up in the pope's window!

It seems not even Bernini’s “colonnade”, nor the duomo of St. Peter’s Basilica are impressive enough to make some people put aside their mobile phones aside for a few minutes: it turns out the Vatican is an increasingly popular place to play PokémonGo.

The trend came to St. Peter’s Square thanks to a widespread report among gamers that “Arceus”, the “Pokémon God”, can be found there, says Rome Reports.

Apparently, St. Peter’s square is almost infested with these “creatures”, which can be “hunted” even in the window where the Pope prays the Angelus, or the fountains around the square.
