So a few hours ago I downloaded Pokemon GO (I live in New Zealand) and enjoyed walking around my city collecting items from Pokestops/ capturing Pokemon etcetera, before going home. Around half an hour ago I decided to leave my house and skate around my suburb to see if I could catch any interesting Pokemon, or gain some cool items. About 5 minutes into skating slowly down the footpath my board is blocked by an uneven surface and I go flying across it with my phone. More worried about making a painful landing, I let go off my phone and try to cushion the landing with my hands, but because my reaction time is just as fast as a sloths my face planted the same time my hands reached the pavement. My phone was also thrown directly into the ground, which cracked the screen. Now i’m at home typing this up from my laptop because my phone won’t do what I want it to do.
TL;DR – Wanted to catch ‚em all, ended up catching my fall (Sorta), oh, and breaking my phone.
The brand new Pokemon Go claims its first victims. This poor guy on reddit tripped and crushed his Smartphone while trying to catch em all!
