Rhodes is over. Rhodes as we now know it, is over. We've been hearing multiple reports that the Pokestops at Rhodes have been changed. It's no longer what it once was. But last Thursday, we visited this hive of villainy. We experienced peak Rhodes. This is what we saw.

This is a requiem for Rhodes, Australia's strangest Pokemon GO spot.


We wrote earlier this week how the popularity of Pokemon GO in Rhodes was becoming a nightmare, not just for residents but for the council and those passing through the area. That's escalated an extra notch today, with Transport NSW officially warning commuters that buses will be delayed in the area.


Ever since Pokemon GO kicked off, the city of Rhodes, Sydney, has been a hotspot for Pokemon and their trainers. It hasn't been quite so popular with the area's residents though, who at one point resorted to water bombing players.

The game's popularity hasn't diminished in the past week, and neither has the flurry of activity around Rhodes. So the council responsible for the area has gotten involved, petitioning developers Niantic to have two of the three most trafficked spots in the site removed.
