Simply the other day, we heard about the cops in Essex having to have a word with a few males “aged 30+” about breaking the COVID rules to capture Pokémon in the AR video game, Pokémon GO. According to a tweet from the Southend Police, these guys were going around making “non-essential” journeys to public places across Rochford.
Well, it turns out those men werent alone. Now, Warwickshire Police have actually released a ₤ 200 fine to a male who travelled 14 miles – from Bedworth to Kenilworth – simply to catch Pokémon. The BBC News post doesnt state which Pokémon precisely he was trying to record, however unless theres a new Pokémon called “COVID Vaccine”, we question the authorities would have deemed it as a deserving trip.
Have you been playing Pokémon GO in lockdown? How hard has it been to catch things when youre stuck indoors? Chat to us in the remarks.
