The Pokémon Go phenomenon continues to fulfill every child’s question: what if Pokémon existed in real life?
The app recently passed Tinder in monthly active users, an amazing feat, given that the game has only been live for about a week now.
Writer and Twitter user Jonathan Perez recently caught a scene that is an incredible real-life demonstration of the game’s popularity.
In a short video, dozens of people could be seen congregating around one tiny spot in New York’s Central Park, looking for Pokémon:
Pokemon GO is just insane right now. This is in Central Park. It’s basically been HQ for Pokemon GO. pic.twitter.com/3v2VfEHzNA

Maybe the best thing that can be said about this game is that it is encouraging people to go outside again, even if they are looking at their phones while doing so.
