Pokemon Go: Rare catch causes a Central Park stampede
Pokémon Go has been drawing players in droves to catch ‘em all, and recently New York City’s Central Park featured a catch that caused a frenzy.
Due to the game’s system of drawing players into real world locations to catch the various kinds of Pokémon, there have been occasions where a crowd has formed to obtain a rare part of the Pokédex. A video released Friday, which you can see above, shows trainers rushing into Central Park late Thursday night to catch the rare Eevee evolution, Vaporeon.
A similar situation played out Wednesday in Bellevue, Washington. Hundreds of players stormed a park when Squirtle, another rare Pokémon, appeared there.
