Sometimes we lose ourselves amidst the pursuit to catch 'em all...Let's just hope that this fool over in Milford, Michigan wasn't actually trying to catch a Parasect before he was apprehended by police authorities. 

Chief Thomas Lindberg said the man (William Wilcox) just made it easy, by showing up. Wilcox, a repeat offender with a warrant out for his arrest, ended up right in front of the men that'd go on to take him into custody.

"It was a misdemeanor warrant for a failure to appear on a breaking and entering charge," Lindberg said. "They approached him. Took him in custody without incident and he admitted he was trying to catch the character at the flagpole."

John Hanke, the CEO of Niantic, sat down with VentureBeat to talk about Pokémon Go, and revealed a few new facts that'll get you excited for the game his team is developing with The Pokémon Company.

For starters, Hanke promises the game will be fun even if you don't live in a big city: "If we’re going to build a game that works with location, it has to be fun for people anywhere to play, in small towns as well as San Francisco. If we designed something that only worked in San Francisco, it wouldn’t be a real success. We wanted it to work globally." If you're just passing through a location, you'll still be able to interact with it without fully engaging that place.

Hanke also revealed that the game will feature gyms, as well as loads and loads of wild Pokémon. The goal is to ensure that you'll run into at least one Pokémon within five minutes of leaving your house. I don't know about you, but I'm assuming that means Rattatas everywhere. Rarer Pokémon will obviously be harder to find, and all Pokémon will be location/environment specific, meaning you'll only find water types near water.

But if you're landlocked, fear not; you'll be able to attend events to not only battle, but also trade Pokémon with other players. Even more exciting, you'll be able to join teams. According to Hinke, "there will be teams to join in Pokémon, more than two. Those teams will compete against one another."

Fight me IRL (whenever this game comes out), bros.

Pastor Dwain Miller from El Dorado, Arkansas claims that Pokémon are using demonic powers to possess children everywhere; and that at one point he even saw some kid lose the ability to walk or speak, with black soot runnin' out his eyes, nose, and mouth.
Alriiighty, then.

I don't know. Would House of Card's Frank Underwood really invest any of his precious time in trying to catch 'em all? Or would he in fact just go full psycho-mode and commit all his time and resources to getting at least 1,000 Gyarados'? Probably the latter.

Agents with the Border Patrol apprehended two Canadian teens that wandered themselves past the border into the U.S. while they were in the throes of a particularly engaging Pokémon GO session.

"Both juveniles were so captivated by their Pokémon GO games that they lost track of where they were. They crossed the International Border inadvertently but agents were able to reunite them with their mother." said Michael Rappold of the Havre Sector Border Patrol Office.


F**king Canadians man, am I right?
