We’ve heard many strange stories from users who have downloaded Pokemon GO and have set out on late night trips to try to catch various Pokemon. One such story comes from a 40-year-old Reddit user who couldn’t sleep so decided to venture out at 3am to do a spot of Pokemon hunting. Here’s the story!
“There is a little park a few blocks from me that had like three pokestops and a gym, so I wandered over there to see what the game could offer,” he explained.
“So I get there and wander around a little checking out the stops and rustling around in the tall grass, then decide to go a few blocks away to see a couple more stops when I hear from the darkness a ‘Yo, my man!’
“Turning, I see two sketchy looking dudes sitting on a bench in the dark. I must have walked right past them without noticing them. One of them waves, ‘My man, check over by the blue truck over there we got an onyx earlier.’
“So I wander over by the truck and sure enough there’s a f—–g Onyx there. Awesome. So I end up chatting with the guys for a bit, told ‘em where I got my Evee, they convinced me to join red team when I hit level five so we could ‘lock s–t down” in the neighbourhood.”
“Then the cop shows up,” he adds.
“Yeah, so it turns out two twenty-something black dudes and a 40-year-old white guy chilling in the park at 3am looks strange. It took a bit of talking to convince the cop we weren’t doing a drug deal, and a bit longer to explain the game. Then the cop downloaded the f—–g game on his phone and asked us how to get started.”
