And this is why you never trust anything that makes you go outside.

Not to mention people have been calling 911 to be let into the fire stations because there are Pokemon inside. Rolling Eyes

Pretty soon we're going to see people falling down into open manholes and walking on to live construction sites looney tunes style and it's all thanks to Pokémon Go. Laughing

Some of these are silly, like the cliff one, but the armed robbery and the dude getting stabbed repeatedly are kind of scary. Really wonder what happened with that stabbing. Seems really weird.

The guy doing it while driving. Probably the stupidest of them all, and go figure it happened just outside of Syracuse Mad

This article doesn't mention any deaths, but I did read else that two fell off a cliff while playing the game, because they weren't paying attention. I'm sure that wasn't the only instance of people dying because of playing the stupidly, but it was the only story I could find.

I don't get it. What's the joke here? Pokemon GO only has the original 151 Pokemon. Absol is not in the game.

It's only a matter of time before someone does get eaten by a Gyarados.
