‘We all live in a Pokémon world’, but just what environmental impact(s) do we as humans have on it? As part of Pokémon’s 25th anniversary year, join a virtual field trip inside a playthrough of a Pokémon game. Drawing on research into how we play games, this event will celebrate the rich gaming and environmental history of Pokémon, while exploring the ways in which we encounter and shape the environments of ‘game worlds’ through our play. In parallel, such experiences may also let us re-interpret how we view ecosystems in our own world.
