Two pop cultural phenomenons have emerged in recent times: Pokémon Go and the release of a new Harry Potter manuscript -- which fans have combined the ideas of to petition for a Harry Potter game that uses the same augmented reality format as Pokémon Go.

As DesignTAXI reports, the desire for the Harry Potter game arose around the same time as talk of a play titled 'Harry Potter And The Cursed Child' circulated, prompting fans of the wizardly series to rejoice in learning more of J.K. Rowling's imaginative realm.

Currently, the creators of Pokémon Go at Niantic Labs do not have plans to release a Harry Potter version of the augmented reality game -- however that hasn't stopped illustrator Trevor Downs from imagining 'Harry Potter Go.' By creating a series of images that show the iconic characters implemented into the medium of Pokémon Go, Trevor Downs allows fans to get a better perspective of what the game might look like.
