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.”

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.

Pokémon GO! Has Been out Less than a Month, and It's Already Inspired Dating Apps Like These

In less than a month Pokémon GO! has taken this planet by storm. Look around you, and you're apt to see someone with a fixed gaze on their phones, swiping upwards aggressively, scowling at their screens, trying to catch 'em all.


It's insane how big this game is. Pokémon GO! is more popular than Tinder right now, and was more popular than porn for a brief bit of time as well. Plus Pokémon GO! is tracking more than 21 million daily active users, so that's pretty damn chill...

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."
