The 17 strangest places people have caught Pokémon in ‘Pokémon Go’
Pokémon Go has been inescapable since its launch, and it seems every day brings with it a new story about players finding virtual monsters in strange, unexpected, or just plain awkward locations.

Look! Pokémon in public toilets! Pokémon on your restaurant table! Pokémon on your legs! Pokémon in your food! Pokémon everywhere! All over the place – like ominous, technicolour ghosts.
