We've officially been living amongst Pokemon for a week now.

The newly released augmented reality app gained popularity quickly, becoming an annoyance at some places – like this Holocaust Museum that says it's inappropriate to play there, and this police station that wants players to stop trying to catch Sandshrew on its property.

However, the Mall of America is embracing the trend.

In fact, it's created #PokeGoMOA to help connect trainers, and devoted an entire webpage to directing players to the best spots.

The mall boasts over 25 Pokestops, two gyms and even a Pokemon Go Trainer Lounge.

While the lounge is basically a giant meeting spot at the MOA Rotunda and only runs through the weekend, it's still proof the mall is embracing this opportunity to lure more people to its stores and restaurants.

For the full, detailed list of Pokestops and gyms at the mall click here.

Note at the end of the list, the mall plugs restaurants trainers can fuel up at, as well as various stores that sell Pokemon-related merchandise.
