You know how there’s a warning on Pokémon Go not to play the game while driving? This guy never got the memo, and when he is eventually sent it, needs it sent another seven times, just to be sure.

As The Seattle Times reports, Washington State troopers noticed a car stopped on the shoulder of a busy highway on Tuesday night, and pulled over to see if the driver needed assistance.

Instead, they found him sitting in the driver’s seat holding a foam block, inside which was resting space for eight phones, each of them logged into Pokémon Go.

He wasn’t given a ticket, since the cops technically never saw him driving while playing (even though he had to have been to have known when to pull over), but he was given a warning (for pulling onto a shoulder when it wasn’t an emergency) and told to put the phones in the back seat so that they weren’t distracting him.


  • If only he’d found a special someone to share his life and his poke-farming with. Then he could’ve driven them around and let them do the catching!

    I know my lady is happy to catch Wizards Unite confoundables for the both of us when I’m driving her around.

    • You’d need more than one special someones to take on the legendary raid it looks like he just completed. I don’t think you’d have much luck with only two participants.

  • Playing Pokemon Go on 8 phones while he’s driving?
    What the hell is he thinking? He should lose his licence for having 8 phones with him while playing Pokemon Go while driving.
    Because he obviously is not getting the message taking a look at your phone for just a few seconds can make you drive blind because what he should realise is that being a distracted driver is dangerous and distracted driving which is looking at your phone can result in injury or death.
