If you're like me, you've gone out for an unwarranted walk to catch 'em all. Risking body, bone, and paycheck; with all worries to the wind because Dragonite might be cruising in on the next gust.

You dig up an excuse to go catch that impossible Golem, only to find out it's at least 1,000 miles away because the navigation was feeling like glitching out for a hot sec.



Then you head back out, brave the proud lone highway because there was a damn fiesta of Magikarps round the corner...and the only dude that actually has a Gyarados, also owes his mom about 7K in a combined purse of Honey BBQ Fritos, and that unfortunately not-extinct Mountain Dew Code Red.

BUT, then when you made the trek the server crashed, because why not inconvenience?

What are your worst stories when you made the journey, only to realize it was futile all along?

The coding that hints at the prospect of Niantic soon introducing buddy Pokémon that follow your avatar around, was first noticed in a github depository, which uploaded all of Pokémon GO's data from newest update.



The coding shows off three different possibilities for how 'buddy Pokémon' will appear on-screen:

-Perched on player's shoulder
-Flying next to player
-Walking behind player (could be tied in to the height/weight measurements previously discovered in Pokémon GO data mine

Would be pretty cool to see Niantic implement a feature that's available in other Pokémon games (Pokémon Yellow, HeartGold/SoulSilver). Can you imagine walking round town with a Zapdos as your 'buddy Pokémon' though?...



So much yes.

Evan Scribner was busted by his girlfriend when she opened up his Pokémon GO account to discover that the cheating trainer had been roaming the high grass in a territory he shouldn't be.

Scribner's spot was blown when his girlfriend noticed the New York neighborhood where Evan caught a Zubat was the same area his ex-girlfriend lived. Pokémon GO uses geolocation services to monitor where and when each Pokémon caught is found. Soo, yeah, Evan had no excuse.

“She saw that I had caught a Pokémon while at my ex’s house,” a broken-hearted Scribner told The Post. “She found out last night at my house and hasn’t contacted me since then,” Scribner said.

This August Ruslan Sokolovsky recorded himself while playing Pokémon GO inside Church of All Saints in Yekaterinburg, after having been made aware such activity within the church could result in jail time...

“How can one offend by entering a church with a smartphone?” Sokolovsky asked. “I decided to just catch some Pokemon in church because, why not? I believe it’s both safe and not prohibited by law. Let’s go.”

Well, fast forward to after Sokolovsky posted the video he was investigated by police, and shortly thereafter charged with inciting hatred and offending religious sensibilities. He's being detained for two months, and stands to face up to five years in jail.

What do you guys think, does the punishment fit the crime here?

Pokémon GO Players Are Letting Autocorrect Name Their Pokemon

Autocorrect has no idea what Pokémon are but it's trying it's best. Some people have started renaming the Pokémon they catch in Pokémon GO to whatever word or phrase autocorrect transforms their names into.

Tell you what man, these guys certainly don't seem to hold anything back when it comes to exploring the outer boundaries of dark humor. Here's another one of their videos:



Wonder what they'd make of that whole time Koffing started popping up in the Holocaust Museum a bit ago...
