And Ashley isn’t the only one.

Brixton Jamm is running a Pokémon Go Lure Party on Saturday 6 August from 4pm to 4am.

It’s a “hip-hope-lure-fest” with Poké-cocktails, rare Pokémon and rarer cuts. The venue will be lured. As night falls, Jamm’s usual players will be taking to the stage with the Gold Teeth All Stars.

A self-confessed “asshole new media type” has already posted a visual journey through Brixton with the wildly popular app.
