a foxholer sent me what the ny daily news had to say…

Callous Pokémon Go users are desecrating sacred sites across the country — including the 9/11 Memorial in lower Manhattan — all because they can’t stop playing the addictive game.

Pokémon Go players are searching for Charmanders, Bulbasaurs, Squirtles and other in-game creatures at the solemn site honoring the more than 2,700 people killed in the attacks on the World Trade Center.

…and then they crashing into pedestrians looking for pokemon:

Pokémon Go players are hurting themselves in their confusion.

An upstate New York Pokéfanatic was playing the wildly popular game in Auburn on Tuesday night when he veered off the road and crashed into a tree.

There were no serious injuries in the clumsy crash, which damaged the front of the wannabe Pokémon master’s car, cracking the windshield.

“Luckily the driver was not seriously injured, but this is an example of how easily accidents can occur when someone is engaged in the game and not paying attention,” Auburn police chief Shawn Butler said in a statement.

When police and the Auburn fire department showed up at about 10:44 p.m., the 28-year-old driver told officials he was distracted by the game when he plowed into the tree.

He suffered cuts to both his legs and was brought to the Auburn Community Hospital for minor injuries.

This is the first major crash related to Pokémon Go. A 15-year-old Pennsylvania girl was hit by a car while crossing a busy intersection on Tuesday at about 5 p.m., her mother told reporters.

“Kids don’t just cross a highway,” her mother Tracy Nolan told WTAE. “This thing had her walking across a highway to find a Pokémon. When she called and said that she was hit by a car, I blamed the game, because she would not have been out of my house. My daughter is a hermit.”

Autumn Deiseroth, who suffered a collarbone and foot injury, as well as several cuts and bruises, also blamed the game, saying the app shouldn’t have Pokémon near busy roads.

A spokesperson for the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC told reporters this wasn’t the first patient they had seen because of Pokémon Go.

tumblr_n8vcx4mPUc1srq92go1_r1_500even though some are being reckless with it,
i’m actually allowing this game.
it has the cubs out and about,
others are outside exploring,
and everyone is coming together for the fun of it.
who knew pokemon was going to make a massive comeback?
i sure didn’t.
now i’m here researching a damn raichu and a wiggytuff.

lowkey: the way my laziness is step up,
i only be playing this when i leave the crib.
giphy-1
i feel like all the good pokemon are down in the city.

  1. A coworker had me wait 10 minutes while they caught Pokemon on our way to get coffee the other day. I don’t get it but I had to literally drag them along and guide them while they caught a flying bat thing. Lol.

  2. I got a Ghastly, Meowth, Nidorino, Poliwhirl, Psyduck, and Exeggcute. There’s a Onyx somewhere in Bayonne, NJ.

      1. Jamari what’s cool about the game is just like wild animals you find different pokemon at different times of the day, different climates, different locations. For example if you want to find a psyduck, squirttle, Octupus, you have to go near a lake, pond, or park. If you want to find a Belzbub, Pidgeto, or any bug pokemon you go near grass. For fire and rock pokemon you will most likely find them out on hot days. And I know rare pokemon come out at night.

        There is a lake by my gym and you everybody and they mama was out there today trying to catch exotic pokemon. I got some good ones too. Now I’m planning a trip to the zoo or other tourist places/parks to find more.

  3. Damn i wasn’t sure if I should download it because as someone who has good memories associated with Pokemon I wasn’t sure if this app could best the GameBoy Color games. I mean I used to play the hell out of those games.

    1. ^this game is addictive,
      interactive,
      and so much fun LOL
      i caught a pinsir and karoake’s cub is jealous.
      i don’t even know what im doing,
      but I’m learning as I go.

  4. I’ve always been a big pokemon fan but i refuse to download it (mostly b/c i’m picky about my pokemon). But all this is going to do is continue to show how many ppl don’t know how to multitask or at least exercise some damn sense and pay attention to where they’re going. Ppl will blame the game, but I largely blame the person. It’s taking flappy birds to the next level in terms of ppl becoming consumed by the game and acting irresponsible as a result of them not exercising some self-control (in most but not all cases).

    S/N: J you’ve got a lot to catch up on if they’re expanding past gen 1. And Karaoke has a cub?

  5. Pokemon is not really making a “comeback” because it hasn’t really been in a slump lol. They’ve BEEN doing good.

    I’m a pokemon fan (games only) and I’m not going to download this game. Been there done that, it seems like it’s more for the casual every day person who has never played pokemon before and not necessarily for the fans (which isn’t a bad thing) It’s amusing to me hearing other people talk about it. LOL!

    This seems like a passing fad, but we will see

  6. I caught Charmander but I’ve been too lazy to hunt for more. I love the augmented reality based technology this game uses. It has even more potential for other games and social apps.
    😜
