Pokemon GO – Vaporeon appearance in Central Park causes a stampede

Update: If that wasn’t enough, here’s a video from earlier in the week when people were going nuts in Washington’s Downtown Park (Bellevue) after a Squirtle appeared:
Continuing the insanity that is Pokemon GO, a stampede formed in New York’s Central Park last night when players came across Vaporeon. This isn’t the easiest creature to catch, so when it was detected at around 11 PM, the crowd went into a frenzy.
Again, we’re not going to be posting too many off-beat news posts stemming from Pokemon GO, but things like this are tough to resist. It’s just crazy seeing the types of things happening!

Teen stumbles upon dead body while playing Pokemon GO

Update: Shayla told Kotaku that she did not capture the Pokemon she was looking for since she stopped playing to call the police.
“[The police] didn’t really know what [Pokemon Go] was. They’re were just like ‘okay.’ I was like, extremely scared, I didn’t know what to do…I was shaking and crying.”
All sorts of stories have been popping up since the launch of Pokemon GO. A few have been heartwarming, others have been unexpected, and some have been downright strange. We aren’t going to be posting too many of them since they’re a bit off-beat for the site, but there is just one we’ll share here due to how odd (and yet very sad at the same time) it is.
19-year-old Shayla Wiggins was playing Pokemon GO earlier today… and happened to come across a dead body floating in the river. She was hoping to capture a creature from a natural water resource. That’s when she took a glance at the shore and saw something in the water. After realizing what was happening, Shayla called the police, who arrived quickly.
Detectives believe the body had been there for less than 24 hours. Additionally, police are saying that “the death appears to be accidental in nature and possibly that of a drowning.”

New Chinese mobile game is a massive Splatoon ripoff
Update: Here’s some footage:
As unfortunate as it is, Chinese companies creating blatant ripoffs of Nintendo products is nothing out of the ordinary. But the newest mobile game may take the cake as the worst offender yet.
In the attached gallery, we have a look at Sepia Go!, one of the newest titles from China. It should only take a second to realize that what we have here is something that is attempting to mimic Splatoon in every way – from the art to the characters to the gameplay. Nintendo should be none to happy with these sorts of things floating around out there.
Thanks to Stephen Lv for originally pointing this out to us.
