Pokemon Go is a massive success and it already amassed millions of players worldwide. If you see people wielding their phones, looking like they’re trying to find something, I am willing to bet that those are Pokemon Go players.
Now, the game’s premise is really simple: download the app, install it, finish some tutorials, and then go out the world and search for all of the Pokemon you can get.
This app uses GPS tracking as it syncs with its servers to get all of the information the game needs for you to catch them all.
Now you know how to play the game, there are some strange things that happened during the last week.
People have been doing some crazy stuff and some of them have even dealt with some strange things.
In this article, I want to talk about some strange things that Pokemon Go players had to deal with this past week.
1. Man sees a drug deal in real-time. There was this one guy who cannot sleep and it was 3 AM. So, he decided to go out there and play some Pokemon Go. In his area, there were 3 Pokestops, so he went there. He passed by two strange dudes who were talking about Pokemon Go. They even told the guy that there was a Pokemon behind that massive truck on the side; to which, the guy went there and indeed caught a Pokemon. Then, the cops showed up and arrested both of the dudes that the guy talked to before. Turns out, they were both doing a drug trade and the police were alerted. The good thing was that the guy wasn’t imprisoned as he was not seen transacting anything with the two guys who traded drugs.
2. Man sees a dead body. Sometimes, when you play Pokemon Go, you will be immersed in the environment of the game. You’re also going to be focused on where you’re headed. During one time, a man was scrolling down the park when he found a Pokemon somewhere in the grassy area. There, he found a dead body which he presumed was dead for a couple of hours. He alerted the authorities afterward and he admits that he still a little bit traumatized.
3. A group of overweight people exercised (probably) for the first time. Pokemon Go is slowly becoming a great fitness app because it forces people to go out there and search for Pokemon to catch. A group of overweight people went outside, walked a couple of distances, in search of Pokemon. Heck, there are even overweight people who brought some water bottles with them because they are going to search for a lot of Pokemon. I guess, Pokemon Go is going to become the best fitness app of 2016?
There are still a lot of strange things that happened to Pokemon Go players last week but I think the three I mentioned above were the interesting ones.
Pokemon Go is a free-to-play game and is available for both Android and iOS mobile phones.
