Usually, parks are an ideal place to kickback, and nowadays maybe even catch some rare Pokémon; but thus was not the case for Summit1g, a Twitch streamer with 86 million views. The poor guy was literally mid-stream, playing Pokémon GO in this video, when all of a sudden you see the police show up, guns pointing at him, because one of his viewers prank called in on him. 

I mean come on dude...According to KKTV, the police were alerted that a man in the park had an 'AK-47 or AR' and that he'd 'planted remote bombs in the park, and wanted to kill cops.

“I offered to give [officers] a little information about what was happening because I kind of knew, considering it happens to other streamers all the time but more in their homes. You get someone’s address and you swat them. I never thought it would happen in a park,” Lazar told KKTV.

Fortunately, everything worked out, and Summit1G was able to explain to the police what was going on. Some final parting words of wisdom regarding all the madness from the man himself:

"It's always got to be some type of dickbag on Twitch," Summit1g said. "Literally all they're doing is making cops waste their resources, and putting people in danger...that guy was pulling an M16 [rifle] out of his trunk...and I still got the f**king Charmander, bitch."

A few weeks ago an anonymous group of inspired artists erected a giant Pikachu statue in New Orleans, as a landmark of sorts for the Pokémon GO fans to appreciate. Check out the following video, which explains why the statue was taken down:

Just cause Pokémon GO hasn't hit Singapore yet, doesn't mean the policing authorities don't know their audience...

Jimmy Derocher wanted to prove to everyone out there that was saying it was impossible to get one million XP in a day, wrong...unfortunately, Niantic wasn't so down for the occasion. Derocher went ahead and put together a special walking plan for his goal as well:



“We place[d] in-game lures on 10 Pokestops in a 0.2 mile loop, which we [planned to] walk over and over,” Derocher said. “People casually call it ‘Jimmy’s loop.’”

Derocher even tried reaching out to Niantic before taking on the challenge, asking them if he could be 'whitelisted.'



Even though Derocher did end up getting softbanned he was still able to raise a decent enough amount of money for charity.

“I logged 25 miles using the app Charity Miles, and we’ll be able to donate $50-60 to charity thanks to stream donations,” Derocher said. “[But] we easily could’ve seen 1.5x that mileage and 5-10x the charity donations given...a full stream.”

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.
