The Pokémon GO craze has spawned another city ranking, and San Diego came in as the fourth most Pokémon-obsessed city in America.

The online real estate service Redfin used Google Trends to see where people were searching for Pokémon terms like Pokémon, Squirtle, Blastoise, Charizard and Bulbasaur.

San Antonio topped the list, followed by San Jose, Los Angeles and then San Diego, where the most searched term was Blastoise. Houston rounded out the top five.

“Pokémon Go is popular all over the world,” said Redfin, “but within the U.S. there are a few cities that take the craze to a new level.”

Earlier this month Coronado installed portable street signs warning fans not to play the game while driving.
