The Reece Mews mural

It's hard to have missed the overnight phenomenon that has boosted Nintendo’s share price by 86% in just the first week of its delivery. Indeed, the release of Pokémon Go – the free app that is bringing many a persons’ dream of being able to catch Pokémon in the real world to life – has been met with absolutely overwhelming demand, and is already bigger than Snapchat and Instagram combined.

What is particularly fascinating about Pokémon Go is its use of meaningful, real world locations as Pokestops and Gyms. To give a few examples, Big Ben, the London Eye and the Shard are all either a Pokestop or a Gym.

Now, you can add Erna Low Ski Holidays to that list! Specifically, the spectacular ski mural painted on the side of our office at 9 Reece Mews, South Kensington. This work of art, created by renowned ski artist, Johny Midnight, has already been recognised by the Kensington and Fulham Open Art Spaces Exhibition last Autumn, and seems to have attracted enough attention to be included as a Pokestop in Pokémon Go!

So come by to stock up on Pokeballs and Potions! We may even start dropping lures on our Pokestop to help Pokémon trainers as they pass through!

If you would like to find out a bit more about our fantastic ski mural and Johny Midnight, the extremely talented artist who designed it, have a look at our related blogs.
