Anti-Pokémon Go Rant by Vancouver Man Goes Viral [VIDEO]


While the much awaited Pokémon Go has finally been released in Canada, some fans seem to be taking it a bit too far. Despite the fact that police have asked the public to be respectful of private property as they play the game around Metro Vancouver, there have been numerous reports of angry homeowners in the city telling Pokémon players to get off their lawns (via Global News). 


One such angry homeowner in Vancouver posted a notice outside his lawn titled “GET A LIFE AND STAY OUT OF MY YARD”. “This whole Pokémon hunt is by far the stupidest thing I have ever seen,” says the note, which was first tweeted by local radio station 102.7 The PEAK, and has since gone viral. The man then lists other things he has lived through, including Hammer Pants, Crystal Pepsi, “people taking Jean Chretien seriously,” and the entire 10-season duration of CSI: Miami. 

“There is a bar up the street, and around the corner. Go there, have a beer, and seriously think about your life choices.”

The sign has since gone down – but it’s not the only example of conflict in Vancouver.

Check out the following video clip showing how things have gotten ugly in downtown Vancouver:

    People are having fun, going out, hanging out, socializing with new people, while living again what has been the best thing of the 90s. So i dont see why some old rednecks cant let people have fun.

  • Stefan

    I do not play the game myself but I agree 100%.

    Well. The point being is that in this case they were trespassing on private property so… Yah. That’s why. Unless private property ownership should be discounted because people are being led around like lemmings by their phones. I think you missed the whole point. If it was my lawn, I’d make sure my Doberman went out to say hello. He doesn’t write notes, but he does take offence to people trespassing on my property.

    See above

    So you see NOTHING wrong with a redneck (>??>>) getting pissed off about people encroaching his property and wanting to protect his privacy?

    Socializing? There is non of that by having 50 people outside on the same spot yet don’t talk to each other. Rather, they are loitering, and transpassing private property because they are staring at their screens like idiots and have no awareness of the surroundings.

    I think Pokemon Go is stupid, but I also think Vancouver is an uptight blackhole that sucks the fun out of anything and everything it can. So in essence, it’s a draw and I’ll sit back and watch the fireworks.

  • Quattro

    Sure, but nothing is as bad as CSI Miami.
