Pokémon Go: Snorlax Summons Human Stampede
Watch as thousands of Pokémon Go players in Taiwan stampede through a busy street to locate and capture a wild Snorlax.
It’s been over a month since Pokémon Go, Niantic’s most popular game to date, was introduced to our lives. As mentioned in our previous article, it has become a huge hit all around the world. As many players know, there are rare Pokémon that can only be captured in certain areas and those areas can get well…crazy. Such was the case over in Xinbeitou Taiwan’s capital Taipei when players were alerted to the appearance of a wild Snorlax.
The video has been going viral since as we see thousands of Pokémon Go players storm through an already crowded street looking for that Snorlax. And apparently this isn’t the first time this has happened and it’s become such a problem that the police have been called to deal with overcrowding of players. It’s great to see how enthusiastic Pokémon Go can be but maybe Niantic should have rare Pokémon appear in less traffic heavy locales in the future.
