Pokemon GO is kind of unprecedented, isn't it? Combine a classic game with new-world technologies, a generation of kids who have all grown up still wanting to be Pokemon trainers deep down, and you've got a hell of an augmented reality game.
One that hockey players, like almost all of our society, aren't immune to. Though it seems Ian Cole is still trying to get the hang of it.
I'm new to this whole Pokemon GO thing... Now that found pikachu, do I just go tackle it Terry Tate style? pic.twitter.com/ueGL3A8nfH— Ian Cole (@ICole28) July 16, 2016
Finding a Pikachu is awesome! Tackling one is probably not. You're supposed to throw balls at it. The world of Pokemon makes perfect sense and is a beautiful thing.
Though preferably it's a virtual Pokemon you try to catch, and not someone dressed up like one. Good thing it looks like there's an ambulance right there, in case something did end up going down...
