People everywhere are coming together with a common goal — catching Pokemon.

Since the mobile app launched last week gamers and Pokemon fans have gone nuts.

People have even organised Pokemon Go walks to get gamers together and go hunting for Pokemon.

Here’s a look at some of the ones that have already been held.

This is a Pokemon Go walk in Perth on July 9.

People gathered at pokestops around Southbank.

Perth police even got in on the action.

Here’s the walk that went down in Sydney yesterday.

More than 5000 people confirmed they were attending the event via the organised Facebook page, while approximately 13,000 registered their interest.

Kotaku Australia’s Alex Walker was at the event.

“By the end of the day — which saw me drain my phone battery twice, after draining it three times on Saturday — I’d gone from level 11 to 17, and hatched a Porygon… And on top of that, I picked up a ~1400 rated Exeggcute, which smashes the snot out of just about everything at the gyms where I live.

“It was the perfect day,” writes Alex.
