The Top 10 Most Popular Pokémon Go Gyms in D.C.

Almost all of them are near the National Mall

In Washington, D.C., the recently released mobile game, Pokémon Go, has affected everything from businesses to parks to real estate. While every Pokéstop, gym, and rare Pokémon have been mapped so far, there’s little information about what the most popular areas are that players have been congregating at.

Thankfully, "location intelligence" firm Cuebiq took the time to look at the behavior of thousands of Pokémon Go users and create a top 10 list of the most visited gyms in Washington, D.C. Unsurprisingly, the majority of the gyms area located near the National Mall.

Below, see the top 10 list along with a map of the points:

  1. USDA at 14th Street and Independence Avenue
  2. Capitol South Metro
  3. St. Peter’s Catholic Church
  4. Washington Monument
  5. U.S. Capitol
  6. Veterans of Foreign Wars - U.S. Building
  7. Bartholdi Park
  8. Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum
  9. Washington Circle
  10. Thomas Circle

According to Cuebiq, the majority of visits to Pokémon gyms occurred between 12 p.m. and 4 p.m. Below, see a bar graph created by Cuebiq:
