Fans of Pokemon Go have fanned out across Singapore in search of the critters and to conquer "gyms" - real-life locations where players can hold and defend against other players - after Saturday's (Aug 6) launch.

The Republic's small size and urban environment mean that gyms and Pokestops - locations where players can get virtual items - are never far away. Here are some that you should be aware of.


Seriously, there's no need to go on a far-flung excursion in search of Pokestops and gyms. Chances are that there are a decent number on the streets that you are familiar with, tagged to statues, signs and landmarks that you walk by every day.

A glance at Pasir Ris shows playgrounds, park connectors, community buildings, murals and even floor designs being used as gyms. So why not take a walk and see your neighbourhood in a new light?
