So we spent a week crafting a painstaking, professional Harry Potter Pokemon Go mashup masterpiece: HarrypotterGO.

Oh alright, an hour on a computer with a graphics editor.

Here are some of the (pretty bad) but fun results!

Dementors

Sucking the soul out of carparks everywhere.

Powerful magical objects

Great, 7 Horcruxes to find!

Magical Beasts

Might be a good time to remember that music always sends Fluffy to sleep.

Magical Monsters

Dobby IS a little magical monster.

The Sorting Hat

Made its way home to Diagon Alley.

Horribly edited images aside, just imagine the awesome possibilities of a HarrypotterGO :

Find magical creatures, artifacts and potions

Not to mention getting sorted, dodging dementors and duelling with your enemies.

J.K. Rowling would have to be under a Muffliato Charm not to hear the sounds of clambering Harry Potter fans.
