Twitter user RealCapnSteel announced he had brought the PokeStop to Toronto’s High Park for the May 2023 Community Day. The OP brought crocheted plushies of Fennekin’s original and Shiny forms, while those who spun the PokeStop were also given unspecified goodies.

This isn’t the first time the real-life PokeStop has been spotted in the wild – it’s also been to several locations across Canada. Previously, it appeared in Mississauga’s Celebration Square for Swinub’s April 2023 Community Day Classic.

The PokeStop also went to Pickering, Ontario, for the April 2023 Togetic Community Day and Stratford for Slowpoke’s event.

In response to RealCapnSteel’s creation, fellow Pokemon Go players voiced their hopes that these PokeStops would appear worldwide.

“You should dress up as a Team Rocket grunt and go stand there menacingly,” one user joked in response to the Wisconsin PokeStop.

Recently, a Pokemon Go player discovered another real-life PokeStop in River Falls, Wisconsin. The landmark was seen in a pile of snow in the midwestern state.
