You may have noticed that even more heads than usual are downward-facing-phone lately. That's because of Pokémon GO, a new app for iPhone and Android devices. It is an "augmented reality" game from the people behind the good old fashioned Pokémon cards you used to trade with your friends about a decade-and-a-half ago. The main difference is now you have to go out and find then using your phone.
is built on Niantic’s Real World Gaming Platform and plants the little buggers in real locations, which means players have to search far and wide in the real world to discover Pokémon. In order for the app to work, you have to give it access to your camera, because, when a Pokémon is in your vicinity and you commit to catch it, a camera screen shows up on your phone, with the character planted somewhere in the picture. That means you could be sitting in your bathroom, and a Squirtle shows up in the tub. Or you're walking behind someone and a Nidoran will show up in their butt.
Obviously, this game has caused some hilarious scenarios. And the best part is that Pokémon GO has an in-app camera for you to screenshot the guy in your garbage, or wherever you happen to find him, and share it with your friends, or the world. Above you can see a Pokémon GO user found the Sandshrew on his friend's butt and snapped this shot to prove it. Click through our gallery
