All this time I have thought that seeing around ten Pokemon Go enthusiasts in The Company’s Garden was amazing, but there’s nothing like the shit that’s been going down in the States and most probably the cause for Pokemon Go‘s servers being down the whole weekend. Hackers claimed responsibility for that.
Public spaces have become the latest meeting place for players, forcing people to get out of their homes and walk to achieve anything. Apparently, the real-life forced meetups are working better than Tinder.

Here’s what happened when a Squirtle showed up at Downtown Park in Bellevue, Washington. Check how that dude just nudged his friend out of the way.
Just a little hint: You can turn off AR mode.

It is crazy to see the variety of people playing the game and getting outside, but I am super grateful numbers have yet to reach this magnitude in South Africa.
