The Pokémon were probably attracted by the smell of rich dark chocolate Fudgesicles. Or maybe they just wanted to play with all the colorful boxes with their handcrafted bows.
And now that ScienceFest is underway, they’re nibbling on the Devil’s Food cake, swiping the salted caramel truffles, and tasting the lemon tarts.
“Pokémon have taken over my ScienceFest booth. We have to catch them all!” said Marguerite McClay, owner of Rose Chocolatier.

Pokémon GO is a free mobile app that Nintendo released in early July for iOS and Android. The game is played by walking around outside and seeing wild Pokémon appear on your device’s screen and catching them. All of the Pokémon that you catch get added to your Pokémon GO “Pokédex.”
When the game was first released, Rose Chocolatier decided to get in on the fun. They will make sure that Pokémon hunters have plenty to find in their store at 991 Central Avenue, in Los Alamos, and they promise to have extra power strips on hand to charge up those phones.
