A news anchor interrupted a live weather forecast so she could catch a Pokémon

We’ve reached peak Pokémon.

THE WORLD IS addicted to catching Pokémon. It’s the situation you dreamed of as a kid, and now it’s finally here.


However, it’s causing havoc in some parts. Take the WTSP newsroom, for instance. Journalist Alison Kropff got distracted and wandered over to weatherman Bobby Deskins as he was giving a weather forecast in Florida.

Deskins, clearly thinking WTF, had this warning to give to aspiring Pokémon masters:

She’s looking for Pokémon! You guys have got to be careful with these phones and this Pokémon.

Better a studio than a road, eh?
