I love these phones. I must have one!

I think knowing a rotary dial gives away your age, but don't worry, you didn't get it right so you're still a youngster. Everyone already knows I'm an old fossil so... the zero is in the right place but then it counts down from 9 and 1 is at the top.

Uh-Oh appears I failed to do my research properly xD

(*puts on nerd hat) Well, in New Zealand as well as in Oslo (where I grew up) there were rotary phones with the numbers ordered that way. I must confess though, that is something I didn't really know or remembered, I just checked on Wikipedia ;)

Oh you're right. I found this old Australian dial that has it exactly the way you have it. I guess both are correct since different countries used different setups. I didn't know that.

And not only that, the entire phone is reversed too, receiver at the bottom instead of on the top! :P

I just learned about this variation too. But the 0987654321 type seems to be the most common one.

The idea of a Victorian Pokémon Go is great. I forgot if it was given a name. Zombie Go, perhaps?

The name is never mentioned as such, but maybe "Pocket Zombies", like the title of the comic? The zombies themselves are referred to as such, as they're so small that they'd fit into a pocket (or, they fit into a phone which fits into a pocket :P ), so the game itself may be called that as well? Anyways, Zombie Go works nicely too too.
