A Horsea, a Horsea, My Kingdom for a Horsea!

As you wander through Essex International Jamboree, every now and then, you’ll see some people – Participants, Staff & Leaders – staring intently at their phones while pointing them at nothing in particular and swiping as if it’s going out of fashion.
EIJ2016 is in a massive field, with long walks between subcamps and activity zones. There is also a WiFi service. Long walks plus WiFi is Pokémon GO heaven!
Jake, Lowestoft ESU, Necker’s Retreat: “I haven’t caught anything yet, but I’ve seen a few good ones. There was a Scout running around in a Pikachu onesie, does that count!?”
“As a former Cub Scout, I’ve always been encouraged to do my best,” Jake says, “but now as a Pokémon trainer, I want to be the very best.”
“At first, I wasn’t very happy with the location of my tent,” says Jake, “My tent is pretty far from the Horizon Staff Restaurant, so I get a good 2km worth of steps to incubate my eggs every day.”
Jake says he is “a little bit disappointed as there’s not a PokéStop to be found anywhere!” This is because Boynton Cross is not usually as populated as it is this week.
Best of luck to Jake and his Pokémon friends.
