Pokemon Evolution Activity

We all know pokémon “evolve” but did you know pokémon are based on real species? Using the latest taxonomic methods researchers from the USA and Japan have created a fully phylogeny of pokémon evolution.

Come see which came first, ground pokémon or grass pokémon.

Children can use their knowledge of pokémon to create their own trees, and learn about how scientists classify and study real species. They can also come face-to-face with some of the living animals that inspired their favorite monsters.

If that is not enough we will be attaching lure modules to the pokéstops in the Library to attract as many wild pokémon as possible for further study.
