I did, what I imagine, a lot of people did, downloaded Pokemon Go, was hooked for about a month, got bored, deleted it. That’s not what Leicester based performance poet John Berkavitch did. Berkavitch climbed his way to the highest level you can get in the game ascending to the top 1% of players in the world. In Pokeman G.O.A.T he explores the tribal culture and online toxicity that often exists within the game’s community. The show features PokeRap worthy word-smithery, projections that rival the illusions of Abracadabra and Circus that would put Mr Mime to shame.
