2. When it leads to weird, random places

One feature you may have heard of is the PokeStop, a hotspot for players to collect eggs and stock up on Pokeballs in the game. PokeStops are usually located at real-life significant points of interest, such as landmarks, prominent buildings and, as we can see, random monuments and statues.

One user detected a PokeStop located at a Chiang Kai Shek memorial, probably in the West where Pokemon Go is already available. Another found one at an ‘evil’ giant clown statue.

Oh, the weird places you’ll Pokemon Go.
