Rare Pokemon Triggers Stampede in Taiwan

A video has emerged on the internet showing mob stampedes through Taipei, the capital of Taiwan.

In what seemed like a scene from a movie, people were rushing through the streets. The reason is a very odd one.

One would think the people were running from a terrorist attack, but actually, they were Pokemon Go players running after the game’s rare, elusive Snorlax creature.



The video was posted to YouTube on Sunday.

According to Chinese media reports, the Xinbeitou area of Taipei has become a daily gathering spot for thousands of Pokemon Go players looking for Snorlax.

Snorlax is an oversized sloth and bear who loves to nap and is considered rare and almost impossible to catch in the Pokemon Go game.
