Looking for Pikachu or Meowth? Discover the best places in Lausanne and help us to complete the guide!


Pokemon Go arrived in Lausanne a few months ago, and the shores of Lake Geneva, the Flon district, and the Cathedral are already full of hunters looking for Pikachu, Charmander or Bulbasaur. In Lausanne, and in the rest of the world, Pokemon Go takes the players all around the city to visit some of the most touristic and cultural places over and over again.

The hunt is on! Follow us through Lausanne and help us complete this guide.

The Flon district:

The Flon district is known to be lively night and day. Many Pokemons are hidding amongst bars, restaurants and shops. We found there : Spearow, Golbat, Nidorano, and Jigglypuff, 10 Pokestops and 1 Gym.

Ouchy:

In order to enjoy the stunning view on Lake Geneva while hunting Pokemons, Ouchy is the perfect place. The docks are full of tourists and pokemons, sunbathing or having a drink on a terrace. On the docks, close the Place du Vieux-Port or to the Ouchy Castle, we found Voltorb, Staryu, Goldeen, Paras, Magikarp, Spearow, Bellsprout, Psyduck, Magnemite and Meowth. You could also find 21 Pokestops and 3 Gyms, one at the Ouchy Castle and one close to the Demi-Lune.
