Pokémon Go has taken over the U.S., our lives have become entirely about Poke Stops — locations in the game where players can catch ’em all and collect vital game items.
For some very humorous reason, a surprising number of these Poke Stops are in locations that don’t exactly seem… appropriate.
From graveyards to “adult entertainment” shops, some of the places players are encouraged to gather and silently loiter on their phones should not exist in a world where 11-year-olds go unsupervised into tall grass, and especially into graveyards! Please do not catch Pokémon on the graves of my loved ones.
#PokemonGO So this is the weirdest pokestop I've seen so far…. I had to go INTO the actual graveyard. Never again. pic.twitter.com/vWj9hlTBw4
