That person walking down the street not looking out in front of them… That group of kids running around in the park staring at their phone screens… The people riding the bus constantly checking their phone for updates… What do they all have in common? They are probably playing Pokémon GO! Don’t believe us? Just check the numbers. The game has already surpassed the 75 million downloads mark, and is permeating every part of our culture.

Pokémon GO is an unstoppable, immovable, unimaginably strong force that shows no signs of slowing down… and now you can make it come to life at your next event. Pop! Events is proud to announce that the face of the whole phenomenon is about to make an appearance at parties all over Toronto – we’ve got Pokémon mascots! Let’s look at this trend more closely.


What is Pokémon GO?

In case you aren’t one of the millions that have downloaded and played the game, let us explain how it works. Pokémon GO is a location-based, augmented reality game that allows users to capture, train, and battle with virtual creatures who appear on the screen as if they were in the real world.

OK, now in English: Pokémon GO is basically a game where Pokémon characters appear in your “local area” by using your local map. Once you create a character, the game transforms your local map into the game’s reality, and creates meeting points where you can battle with other players. Wild Pokémon will also “appear” on the map, allowing you to catch them!


The world’s hottest trend

It’s hard to believe that this game was only released just a few weeks ago, but it has already taken the world completely by storm. Look at some of these stats!

Over 75 million downloads!

  • It only took 13 hours to reach the top of the highest grossing app charts
  • Nintendo’s shared price has doubled because of it (even though they didn’t actually make the game!)

That’s just the tip of the iceberg! Kids everywhere around the world from Tokyo to Toronto are clamouring for anything and everything Pokémon. It’s like the year 2000 all over again.


Make Pokémon GO come to life with Pop! Events

We are proud to announce that the most popular character from the whole franchise will be partnering with Pop! Events to make party calls around Toronto starting in mid-August. That’s right, Pikachu is the newest mascot that we’ve added, and he is excited to come to any and all events upon request. You won’t have to search for him in a field and catch him with a Pokeball, you just need to give us a call!


Pokémon GO has taken the world by storm, and it’s the hottest trend in years. Make the game come to life and make all of the kids excited when Pikachu comes to the party. Pop! Events has plenty of great mascots for parties, but none can rival this guy’s popularity!
