Pokemon Go has barely been released in the UK but already it has taken over everyone's lives and turned us all into phone gazing explorers, wandering the length and breadth of London in the hope capturing a rare Abra or Pikachu.

Luckily, for those who want to join in the fun but still maintain a social life there are more than enough Pokemon Go events popping up around the city so you can catch them all with the help of other Poke-mad enthusiasts.
