7 Hilarious and Bizarre Pokemon Go locations at Epcot

in Disney, Entertainment, Walt Disney World

Pokemon Go

After nearly two years, Pokemon Go is still going strong. With what seems like a new feature or update every month, the game keeps players on their toes and remains fresh.

If you’re one of the many that play Pokemon Go in the Orlando theme parks you may have noticed some… interesting pokestops and gyms. In the past, we showed you some of these interesting locations at Magic KingdomDisney’s Hollywood Studios, Universal Studios Florida, and Islands of Adventure.

Walt Disney World’s Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow also has some strange locations. Whether it’s a hilarious description, inconsistencies in images or whatever other wacky reason, there are some unique Pokemon Go locations in Epcot.

1. 1970’s Computer Scientist

As soon as you enter the park, you start to see some interesting locations. Sure, the entrance to the park makes sense, and of course Spaceship Earth is a must, but why this one specific animatronic? Granted it is one of the most unique and popular animatronics, but the 1970’s Computer Scientist is still an interesting choice.

2. Sandman

Do you want to build a… sandman? It looks like this location was chosen during the holiday season. Don’t go looking for this “sandman” in Living with the Land because it is not always there. Still, it’s a good pokestop for getting the “Frozen” soundtrack stuck in your head.

3. Smell Tank

What a bizarre choice. It could have been the entrance to the attraction, or just the attraction itself, but for some reason, the Smell Tank was chosen as a location. To top it off, the image seems to have captured a very jittery Figment.

4. Club Cool

Club Cool is one of my favorite places in Epcot, so I have no problem with it being a pokestop. I just love that the description simply says “Stay Frosty.” While that doesn’t exactly explain the location, it’s a fantastic tagline.

5. Small Tree in a Box

Ah. You know, the famous “small tree in a box” at Epcot. No description needed. Just visit the small tree… in a box.

6. Walt Disney World Cauldron 17

If you’ve stayed at Epcot after dark, you’re probably familiar with the torches around World Showcase. Most of them are pokestops, but if you look closely at the image for this one, you may notice a bit of an issue. Looks like they got the wrong torch…


7. Torch #6

From Torch #17 (really 15), over to Torch #6 (No wait, #11. Nope, it is #6). This one corrects the error from the previous location and matches the image to the title. If it wasn’t for that darn description, this would have been perfect.

The Orlando theme parks are filled with these bizarre Pokemon Go locations. Be sure to check back for more interesting stops throughout Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando Resort.
