Pokémon Go gives an interesting twist on the Selborne that Gilbert White explored. Where Gilbert White identified the Harvest Mouse as a separate species, who knows what species of Pokémon will be identified?
Pokémon Go allows you to Travel between the real world and the virtual world of Pokémon. You can gain rewards by visiting real locations. Players search far and wide in the real world to discover interesting Pokémon species!
Once you’ve encountered a Pokémon, you take aim on your smartphone’s touch screen and throw a Poké Ball to catch it…
Real world species in the area can also be caught on a smartphone… Using your camera!
In fact, we are collecting wildlife sightings for our Modern Natural History of Selborne (not to mention encouraging people to take part in the Big Butterfly Count) so visit Gilbert White & The Oates Collections and tell us about your virtual world and real world sightings!
