Have You Found Any Pokémon Near Famous Landmarks in Pokémon GO? Show Us!

Unless you've been living under a Geodude for the past few days, you'll have heard about the launch of Pokémon GO, the latest release from the world-conquering Pokémon franchise and Niantic, the people behind the groundbreaking 2013 game Ingress. The game's central premise is that, using augmented reality, the classic creature-capturing game that we've known for the past 20 years can be overlaid onto the real world, requiring players to get out and explore their surroundings to find the Pokémon lurking in the streets and parks of their neighborhood.

Of course, the game's augmented reality element allows for some interesting juxtapositions between the real world and the game world, and opens up a new kind of "wildlife photography"—as exemplified by the above image of a Krabby at Sydney Harbor, captured on a mass "Pokémon GO walk" that was organized in the city over the weekend. We'd like to see our readers' best snaps of Pokémon alongside famous landmarks. Have you seen a Staryu at the Statue of Liberty? A Grimer at the Golden Gate Bridge? A Weepinbell at the Washington Memorial? We want to see it!

Upload your very best shots in the comments, and we'll feature our favorites in an upcoming article.
