Pokemon Go Toronto

Pokemon Go players get discount at Toronto restaurant

Hey Team Valor Toronto, if you ventured to this newish waffle house earlier this week, you might have caught more than just a few Pokemon. You could have captured a half price Liege waffle at Waffle U too.

That's right, owner and PokeMaster Alex Puzo first started offering discounts to Team Valor on Sunday. If you're not playing yet, the Pokemon Go teams are kind of similar to the houses in Harry Potter.

Puzo was (unsurprisingly) neutral towards Team Instinct, however he wasn't too kind to Team Mystic; if members of the blue team wanted one of his epic-looking waffles, they were supposed to pay double.

But once in store, Puzo ended up giving all trainers a discounts. "Everyone who comes here knows that I play it, they play it now as well, it's becoming a growing community."

Redditor Dubiono posted a photo of the sign on Monday, the same day Puzo took it down. "I had to take it down within two days," he says. "The lineup was behind the building and I just can't make that many waffles."
