"For your mild amusement, I renamed all my Pokemon whatever my 2 year old called them" -- june1920
When your dedication to catch 'em all becomes so extreme that you start seeing the people around you as actual Pokémon, it might be time to step away from Pokémon GO for awhile. However, if your girlfriend is completely chill with becoming the face of your collection, go for it. But I might rename some of these if you want to keep your testicles... Because if some of these are accurate you won't be doing yourself any favors by giving your Pokemon these names based on her and her behavior. If you thought these names were a riot, you have to check out some of the best unfortunate names that people have been called by their parents.
Poor 'ol Boone Sheridan who lives in Massachusetts, downloaded Pokémon GO last Friday, only to end up realizing that his house was marked as one of his area's gyms. Thing is, it makes sense because Sheridan said his place used to be a church in the 1800's (thus explaining why it'd be marked as a gym).
Churches are f**king hotbeds in Pokémon GO right now. Sheridan's coverage via Twitter, of his place being frequented by Pokémon trainers who were just trying to train 'n catch 'em all, is pretty damn hilarious.
From the MAS Facebook page: "Come out to the Muncie Animal Shelter between 10am-5:30pm any day and walk an adoptable dog as you hunt for Pokemon and hatch eggs!"
You get to play Pokémon GO and adoptable dogs get to go on walks; it's a win-win! Hopefully shelters all over the country will soon offer the same thing.
It's practically a give at this point that your Pokémon GO! adventures will take you off the beaten path, and maybe even tempt you to go exploring your neighbors' properties with the utmost caution...naturally, this pisses the hell out of some folks who just want to be left alone like this chick...
Well, not Matthew Beaman. Beaman's been busy depositing 3D models of Pokémon for players at Poké Stops around Ikfracombe, Devon. He wanted to leave players souvenirs that'll last off their screens.
"I thought rather than leaving it just to chance I should let people have some fun with it.
"I've had people shouting thank you at me in the street."
Damn right. You are the MAN.
Twitter user Pokéfan Libby was on a quest to catch 'em all when she stumbled upon a seemingly impossible to reach gym near a fountain in Wellington Harbour, New Zealand.
While pondering the idea of how to capture it, Libby noticed a kayak on a direct bath to the gym... Sure enough it was two Pokémon GO enthusiasts.
The gym (once belonging to Team Yellow) was on its way to be claimed by kayak for Team Blue by Kelsey Thompson and Lizzy Eden.
