HOUSTON – If you thought Pokémon Go was only restricted to your phone screen, think again.

A PokéBar pop-up event will be in Houston on Oct. 5 and 6, and will allow fans to play a real-life version of the game, according to a news release from organizers. 

PokéBar will then return on Jan. 11-12, 2020.

The pop-up bar is also taking place in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Denver and Cleveland, as well as five European cities. Fans will be divided into seven regions to play real-life Pokémon Go. Within the two-hour sessions, players will hunt, battle and catch. The ultimate winner will compete in all regions.

There will also be Pokémon-themed burgers and cocktails and music.

Anyone under 21 must be accompanied by an adult.
