Such simpler times were had by all when we just stayed inside in our caves, minding our own business, unaware of the devastating madness just outside our doors.

Yep, it looks like 7 News in Boston reports the body was discovered floating in a brook at Rotary Park in Nashua earlier today. 

A Pokémon Go player had made the discovery while exploring the area, on the hunt to catch 'em all.

Pokémon Sun and Moon Trailer Reveals New Z-Moves, Special Munchlax, and Rattata's Alola Form

Don't even know where to start with the latest trailer for Pokémon Sun and Moon! So many exciting things happening all at once. Snorlax finally wakes the heck up to unleash the ultimate z-move...'pulverizing pancake' (just wait till you see it in the video), and Raichu's straight up surfing the waves.

We're still a day away from Pokémon's special direct, but supposedly these are leaked logos from a brand new generation to be announced during that presentation.

The images come from supposed trademark filings, and look pretty legit, but before you get too excited, know they were first discovered by Nerd_Leaks, who are brand new to the info leaking game, so trust this info as you see fit.

We get to follow the aptly named 'Darkathion' for his first nine minutes of character customization and exploration to spots like the 'Giant Rock Stack' and library. The game's already showing clear signs of being geared towards encouraging taking your next adventure outside. 



Maybe the biggest highlight of this revealing video was the part in which we get to see just how hard it is to actually 'hit' a Pokémon with a Poké Ball when trying to catch it--takes a serious chuck, man! All in all the hype continues to build with this pretty dang exciting video!

A recent data mine of Pokémon GO!'s coding revealed a picture of the iconic, Master Ball.

Before we all get too excited, you've gotta wonder whether there'll be any downsides to the Master Ball in this game? -- will an errant curveball toss end up wasting the Master Ball altogether? I guess we better take a page out this dude's book, and opt for the safest, most surefire way to achieve success, and catch 'em all...

Pokémon GO's taken the planet by storm. Lives have been made, ruined, and everything in between by this kickass augmented reality game. We're talking staged robberies like this:



And relationship-ruining NSFW-ish 'gotta catch 'em all' moments like this:



Looks like Google could've predicted much of the madness that's ensued thus far...

Play the game here here and let us know what you think.

Peta has this to say: "Our parody game is a fun way to tackle a serious issue - that it's wrong for Nintendo to allow McDonald's to lure kids in using its beloved, cute icons, when the reality is that Pokemon have been used to mask would horrify them."

For those unaware, Pokémon GO has all but taken over the planet at this point. Phone batteries everywhere have taken a devastating hit. People wander the streets with lifeless eyes, tired legs (still getting used to the whole walking everywhere thing) on the hunt for another Magikarp (cause you need like 500 of those to get a damn Gyarados).

Seriously. Go outside, look around, and catch at least a dozen folks committed to leveling up, catching 'em all, and hitting every f**king Poké Stop between here and Narnia, while on their way to a potentially perpetual state of unemployment. Like some of us really should be getting back to work at this point...

And now to the hot topic of the day: when you first start up with this game, you've the option to side with Team Instinct, Valor, or Mystic:





Well, an inspired piece of banner artwork from DeviantArt’s Seoxys6 is serving as the rallying point for players out there that have grown tired of the senseless hostility between players on different teams. Team Harmony's message goes:

“Disturb not the harmony of Fire, Ice, or Lightning lest these three Titans wreck destruction upon the world in which they clash. Though the water’s Great Guardian shall arise to quell the fighting alone its song will fail. Thus the Earth shall turn to ash. O, Chosen One, into thine hands bring together all three.”

Can this new, 'unofficial' team put an end to all the animosity, or nah? I appreciate the nod to the pokémon storyline -- in the movie Ash and friends have to do something with Lugia in order to restore order between the three legendary birds, Zapdos, Articuno, and Moltres.



I don't know though; these reactions suggest we might yet be on an endless quest to attain peace between competing factions....

Guy Playing Pokémon GO Live-Tweets the Ridiculous Number of Rare Pokémon He Encounters in His Condo

This dude needs to start up some sort of business out of his place, and he definitely needs to call it 'The Safari Zone.' If this is all legit and not the deceptive work of decent photoshopping skills, then I'm pretty sure there are plenty of players out there that'd be ready to cruise through his condo.

Pokémon Sun and Moon's Alolan Dugtrio Has Fabulous Hair, and the Internet Can't Even Right Now

The public Sun and Moon demo dropped, and reliable sources and committed hackers alike have since then confirmed that the demo contains files showing off the sprites of many of the unannounced Pokémon, including the final evolutions of the starters. But in all fairness, we're here to argue that Dugtrio and that fabulous hair is kind of stealing the dang show. And the folks of the internet seem to agree.
