The Top 10 Places to Catch Pokemon in Lubbock [UPDATED]
Based off my hours of reading Reddit, Facebook, an unofficial Complete Pokemon Go Guidebook and personal experience, here are Lubbock's 10 best Pokemon hunting spots in no particular order.
Texas Tech Campus
Pokemon generate more frequently with higher cell data usage. So as soon as students are back at Texas Tech, it's going to be ON like Digimon. There's also a ton of public art, so PokeStops galore.
Grassy fields and parks are great for finding Forest types and, thanks to Joyland, electric types, too. Bonus: There's a gym here.
The downtown area is full of landmarks, making it a great spot to accumulate Pokeballs and eggs. Also, low traffic is a bonus, just be sure to have buddies at night.
A park with lots of water means Forest and Water types. There's a gym near at the water statue.
The Depot District
Again, many landmarks and therefore Pokestops. You can also battle at a couple well-placed gyms, including the Buddy Holly Statue.
Ranching Heritage Center
Not only a great place to catch 'em all, a lovely place to wander around aimlessly anyways.
I just caught Pikachu in the Lonestar 99.5 studio twenty minutes ago. There's a ton of data usage in this general area, resulting in a high rate of Pokemon spawning. Plus, there's a PokeStop near the PeiWei and Chocolate Mousse Pie Bar.
Lubbock Christian University (But Beware!)
A lot of trainers hunt around LCU, resulting in a high spawn rate. But DO NOT hunt there after dark or security with kick you out. The grounds are for students with IDs only at that time.
Mae Simmons Park
Dunbar Lake at Mae Simmons park means you might actually get a water type in Lubbock.
Resthaven Cemetery (Don't Be Rude!)
UPDATE: Resthaven Cemetery has had its "Pokemon Go" PokeStops removed after several incidents involving players coming to the location to catch Pokemon. May we suggest Clapp Park instead?
