The Swiss city of Basel is promoting all of the wonders of Pokemon Go in the city with a prank video of “real-life” Pickachu’ fighting back against Pokemon Go players in the city. The hilarious video shows a band of people dressed as the iconic Pokemon taking out tourists with giant, human-size Pokeballs. 

Check out the video here.

Basel is capitalizing on its Pokemon Go attractions with a page on its tourism site dedicated to assisting players. The site includes sights where you can find Pokemon, advice on exploring the city and special offers for Pokemon fans including where to purchase a Poke burger, information on the Pokemon Go Festival and how to get your hands on a Pokemon cupcake.
