Pokemon Go has taken the country by storm. With the new mobile game, Niantic Labs (a Google-grown company, in cooperation with Nintendo and the Pokémon Company) has reinvigorated the public to explore their cities, even at the risk of injuries. In order to make it easier to catch them all, Curbed has begun to map different neighborhoods and sites in Washington, D.C. and what types of Pokemon players can find there.
In order to create the most comprehensive map possible, Curbed needs your help. If you've spotted Pokemon in a neighborhood not mapped below or if you've discovered Pokemon not labeled, speak up by sounding off in the comments or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
