New York City Literally Lost Its Shit Over a Rare Pokémon

The Pokémon Go obsession is still going strong. We’ve heard some crazy stories—the app has led people to everything from true love to dead bodies. Most recently, we saw the full extent of the madness when a rare Pokémon made an appearance in New York City’s Central Park.

When a Vaporeon showed up on a Thursday night, people literally RAN to Central Park to capture it; one man was even filmed leaving his car engine running in an attempt to score the Pokémon. This is NUTS—but at least people are getting up and moving? We’re trying to focus on the silver lining here… but this isn’t quite what we expected to see come out of 2016.
