How do you decide where the best place is to catch Pokemon?

In order to rank the best places in Indiana in which to catch ’em all, we had to determine which cities, towns and villages in Indiana have the most places to find Pokemon.

How we crunched the numbers

We threw a lot of criteria at this one in order to get the best, most complete results possible. Using Google Maps, this is the criteria we used:

  • Number of parks per capita
  • Number of museums per capita
  • Number of churches per capita
  • Number of memorials and public gathering places per capita
