Phoenix Zoo

With more than 30 Pokestops and a gym to battle Pokemon inside the Orangutan Bilik, the zoo is a hotspot for trainers. The zoo will open an hour early — at 6 a.m. — July 17-23. Costumed Pokemon mascots will greet visitors on July 23. Staff members will set lures to attract Pokemon to specific areas. Share photos of Pokemon at the zoo for a chance to be included in an online gallery. Regular admission fees of $14-$20 apply.
