6. ‘Mind the gap’ is no longer a sufficient warning

“Please don’t jump on the train tracks trying to catch a Pokémon.” – actual thing adults need to be told

7. Have brands jumped on the Pokémon Go bandwagon? You betcha.

Just look at Trojan’s tweet.

11. “What’s that fella doing?” “He’s playing Pokemon Go.”



13. And look at what Central Park has become!

14. Want to despair for humanity? People are playing Pokemon Go in a Holocaust museum


15. To the point where theUnited States Holocaust Memorial Museum had to be like, “Please stop”

16. It’s taking over to the point that there are probably Pokémon lurking around your jacks at this very moment

17. And trying to steal your drinks

18. People are even blaming Pokémon Go for giving them sore legs and forcing them to exercise

19. The thirst from this tweet, though.
