Pokemon Go is making people do a lot of strange shi stuff.
In an attempt to catch Pokemon, people have fallen off cliffs, and they've even been in car accidents. Browse our gallery of the worst and dumbest places people have found Pokemon. And if you want more examples, just search the #PokemonGoMadeMe hashtag. It's now trending on Twitter, which isn't surprising since the augmented-reality game is quickly sweeping the world.
The app, which has been leading in the app stores after debuting in the US, enables you to find and collect Pokemon all around the globe, as you wander about in real life, so there are plenty of options for tomfoolery. Here's some of the best (and strangest) examples we've found.
