It has taken the world by storm but how addicted are you? If you consider any of these as perfectly rational/acceptable then perhaps it’s time to put your phone down for a few years and try that ‘real life’ stuff people are always banging on about. The 16 worst places to play Pokémon…
1. On a first date
Although if she turns out to be a fellow trainer… Score!
2. At a funeral
“How well did you know him?”
“I don’t, I’m just looking for a Snorlax.”
3. At work
Especially bad if you’re a doctor, unforgivable if you’re a gynaecologist.
4. During the birth of your first child
“What are you going to name him?”
5. In the pub
If you find yourself discussing the best places to find Pokémon in your favourite boozer you either need to find a new pub or new friends.
6. When driving
7. Someone’s back garden at 2am
“But officer, I didn’t know this was the home of a bikini model, I was hunting for Pokémon!”
We don’t know what’s worse, getting arrested for something so lame or looking for Pokémon instead of bikini models?
8. In a restaurant
Choosing the restaurant based on the chances of seeing Pokémon? You’re turning into Sheldon Cooper but without the extra IQ points.
9. Buckingham Palace garden
Prince Phil is likely to shoot first and ask Pokémon related questions later.
10. At a wedding
“Don’t mind me folks, just passing through.”
11. At a job interview
“And where do you see yourself in five years?”
“Probably still hunting for a Charizard.”
12. During a marathon
It’s 26 miles already, don’t go making things any harder for yourself.
13. During take off
Fine if you’re a passenger. If you’re the pilot, not so much.
14. While playing paintball
You’re likely to take a few shots right in the Metapods and to be honest, you’d probably deserve it.
15. In a lap dance club
Seriously? That’s the kind of Pikachu you’re looking for?
16. At a football ground
Any bloke found to be playing Pokémon instead of informing the referee just what a cheating **** he is, should hand over his man-card immediately.
