Hundreds of people aged 15-25 heeded the call through Facebook and gathered in central Athens to chase the yellow creatures. Over 5,000 people said they would attend the event on Facebook and a good number of them did.
“Saturday, July 23 all Pokémon Trainers gather at Monastiraki for a night raid,” said the Facebook message. This was the first Pokemon Go night tour of the capital. The organizers promised there will be more to come.
