Pokémon Go has gyms located in the weirdest places, but the truest Pokémon masters will go to great lengths to claim them anyway. This is definitely the case of Pokémon devotees/friends Kelsey Thomson and Lizzy Eden, who noticed a gym out in the middle of the ocean, but didn't let a little bit of water stop them from catching 'em all. Eden decided to chronicle the adventure on her Twitter, and it has since gone viral.
It all started when the girls noticed that the gym on their app was actually out in the middle of Wellington Harbour, off the coast of New Zealand.
Then they noticed that there were already two people out on a kayak staring at their phones, a clear indication that they were battling at the gym already.
Not to be outdone, Thomson and Eden rented a kayak of their own to go battle themselves and win the gym for team blue (the gym was in the possession of team yellow at the time).
Now Mashable is reporting that the gym is back in the possession of team yellow (Eden notes that the people who own the gym have their own boat, which is totally an unfair advantage). Hey, at least Pokémon Go is getting people to stare at their phones outside.
