Sportsbet opens betting on where in Sydney and Melbourne the first Legendary Pokémon will be found.

Hyde Park leads the Sydney race at odds of $6.00 while in Melbourne the MCG is the $6.00 favourite.

Pokémon Go expected to pass Twitter for users this year with Facebook also in its sights.

Pokémon Go has exploded in popularity since its release last week and the gaming app hasn’t even received an international release yet.

Online bookmaker has opened markets on where the first Legendary Pokémon will be found with users frantically searching throughout Sydney and Melbourne.

In Sydney, Hyde Park is the $6.00 favourite ahead of the Opera House ($7.50) and Wynyard Station (8.00).

While in Melbourne the MCG is the $6.00 favourite, with St Kilda Beach ($6.50), Westgate Bridge ($7.00) and Flemington Racecourse ($7.50) also in the mix.

Pokémon Go is $1.05 to have more users than Twitter by the end of the year and a $7.00 chance to topple Facebook in 2017.

“It’s a long time since something has captured and dominated the public’s attention like this and it’s only going to get bigger once it arrives in every other country,’’ said’s Will Byrne.

“We’re already tipping the game to surpass Twitter this year and Facebook will no doubt be looking over their shoulders.”
