Gotta catch ’em all? Well, maybe you should head to Central Park in NYC… because a rare sighting of the Vaporeon Pokemon had Pokemon GO players going absolutely insane there. Click inside to WATCH!
Okay, this is pretty funny! When word spread that a Vaporeon, one of the rarest Pokemon there are, had appeared in Central Park at around 11pm ET, the people of New York City went absolutely nuts. And of course by “people” we mean Poke Masters!
In the video above, a bystander captured the chaos as people swarmed Central Park to find the alleged Vaporeon. Cars were backed up in the streets, and you’ll even notice one driver just get out of his car and run into the park. Really, guys?
As the video shows, it didn’t end there. The man recording couldn’t stop laughing as he panned around to show that more and more people were flooding the park, causing a stampede as they crossed the crowded street and headed into the dark park to find the rare Pokemon. It was total insanity!
There’s no word on whether or not any of the mass actually caught the Vaporeon, or whether or not it really was in Central Park, but something tells us these dedicated players will find it eventually. No matter what, they’ve just gotta keep catching ’em all!
