So you just started playing Pokémon Go, and are starting to feel pretty good about it. But something is missing. Maybe the Pokémon you have been hunting close by are starting to seem the same, or you just want to see what else is out there for a badass Poke-hunter to find? Luckily for you, we have put together a list of the most extreme and adventurous places a person can hunt Pokémon without ever having to leave Colorado.
5 Points Denver
Most people probably aren’t going to be looking around the most dangerous part of Denver for Pokémon, so the competition will be slim. Be sure and ask a group of people wearing the same color of red or blue, and crowded together if they have seen any good Pokémon recently. This will save a lot of time, and provide some good insider tips to the area.
Rodeo Fest Colorado
Happening across Colorado all of the time, you have the opportunity to catch them all with people who catch real animals for a living. A bunch of cowboys hopped up on testosterone are very likely to know where the best Pokémon in the area are to be found. When they aren’t riding bulls, it is likely that a cowboy will be looking at their phone for grass creatures. If you dress up like a rodeo clown, they might even let you into the ring for some truly rare catching opportunities.

Closed doors in DIA’s Secret Offices
There are a lot of conspiracy theories based in Denver’s International Airport, which means there are probably also a lot of rare Pokémon. Get ready for something completely unexpected, as you explore the world of top-secret locations. Who knows? You may just find that there is a secret government lab breeding real Pokémon, and actually catch one in real life.
Donald Trump Rally
Since you are playing Pokémon Go you are also probably Feeling the Bern, so it might be difficult to fit in. Donald Trump brings all sorts of opinionated and emotionally charged people to his rallies, but what sort of Pokémon come along with them? This could be your chance to catch a bunch of great Pokémon that nobody else is noticing. Go out and make your Pokedex great again.

A Black Lives Matter Rally
In the more recent days, playing Pokémon Go at one of these will be intense. People will be yelling. You may be stepping in front of traffic on a freeway. But most of all, you will be collecting rare Pokémon in a sea of people who are more concerned with protesting, than catching Pokémon.
Its time to really stretch those Pokémon hunter legs on this 14 mile round trip hike through rare creature infested territory. Make sure your phone is really well charged, because this hike is over 14 miles round trip. This is also the highest peak in the front range, so be sure and bring real water, not just water from the game (augmented reality is only so real).
Capitol Peak/ Crestone Needle Traverse
What better place to find Pokémon, but on one of the most treacherous hikes in Colorado? Be sure and have a life proof case during the hike, because dropping your phone off massive cliffs onto jagged rocks could really put a damper on the rest of your time playing the Pokémon Go game.
Since your life has become consumed by hunting Pokémon, its time to take your skills to the next level, and start exploring these extreme places. Not only are these places cool to see outside of augmented reality, but they are also an amazing opportunity to catch Pokémon. Just give them a shot, and try not to fall off a mountain.
