Pokemon with a twist: play Rokemon in Eidsvold

THE Pokemon Go craze has taken on a new challenging form in Eidsvold.

Eidsvold State School P&C vice president Trudie Roth said she was on a mission to boost the online presence of the school.

"I was down the library one day, thinking about doing a trivia thing on the Facebook page, and then I saw a rock sitting on the counter," Mrs Roth said.

"I thought I could hide it around town and make people go and find it.

"You go and find the Rokemon... it was when all that Pokemon Go stuff was out."

Mrs Roth leaves word clues on the Facebook page, but said she would soon start to leave picture clues and even GPS readings.

"I got a message on Saturday night after I left a clue about a 50km/hr sign, one of the ladies in the main street said there is a 50km sign outside my house and so many kids have checked, it isn't funny.

"That's what they're doing on Saturday night.

"I've had to start sneaking into town late at night so no one sees me (hiding) it.

"As long as the cops don't think it strange, maybe I should let them in on it."

Mrs Roth said Rokemon would keep being hidden as long as people kept wanting to play.

"It got found yesterday, it will come back to school tomorrow then it will go back out again," she said.

"It's to get them out there and get them active."
