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

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

  • Number of parks per capita

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