Pokémon Go: U.S. Marines are playing

Posted on

Pikachu is ready for battle.

Since last week’s release of Pokémon Go, people have been scouring their streets, parks, and more public places in the hopes of catching virtual Pokémon. Turns out members of the military are no exception.

On Tuesday, the U.S. Marines official Twitter account posted a picture showing Pikachu hanging out between two members of the Armed Forces. The caption reads, “Get off the firing line, Pikachu! That’s a safety violation!”

The new game has rejuvenated the franchise, which this year is celebrating the 20th anniversary of its first game. Pokémon Go is currently the top-grossing app in the iTunes App Store and Pokémon-related songs are dominating the Spotify charts.
