The "Pokemon Go" craze is so big, it's going to turn a line of themed restaurants into huge money makers ... or so one developer thinks now that he's filed docs to launch the idea.
James Kim -- a branding and marketing guru -- is trying to lock up trademark rights for eateries he plans to call "Pokestop." If you don't know ... Pokestops, in the game, are digital locations where players refill on supplies.
Kim plans to open cafes catering to the game ... which would allow users to fill up on Pokemon supplies (for the game), catch a few creatures and also fill up on real-life food, coffee, tea and possibly beers too.
He says they would have Pokemon lures to bring in creatures to each location, and even host Pokemon-themed events. Of course, he'll need to secure a licensing deal with Pokemon -- which hasn't happened. Yet.
