We know what you’ve been doing with your free time. Heck, we know what you’ve been doing during your lunch break, on those late night walks, at the grocery store, in line at Starbucks, skulking about in the backyard of people’s houses, and pretty much all day in between: You’re playing Pokémon Go. Don’t lie to us! We know that if you’re not hunting for Pokéstops with lure modules already in them, or creeping on places of worship and people’s homes to have gym battles, you’re probably online looking up tips and tricks. The game has taken the world by storm, and has hordes of us wandering the streets of our towns and cities with our heads in our phones. For those of you without a car hoping to get those elusive Pikachus across town, never fear: Uber Go is here for you!
In a new video from Julien Solomita, the not-at-all-real (sorry!) app’s myriad benefits are made evident (mainly: allowing you to hunt Pokémon while someone else drives you around). Sidenote: is it wrong that we want this to be a real thing? (Also: you know someone has already used Uber for this!) Thankfully, Uber Go drivers are totally game, asking how the hunt is going and asking if the player is, “putting ’em in your balls?” (Note: I have made more “balls” jokes in the past few days than any teenager has in an entire lifetime.) They also seem totally OK with all your crazy, impulsive demands. After all, when you see a Pikachu, you have to drop everything and catch him! This is non-negotiable.
Check out the video and laugh along with us. Now, as a player myself (my local park has a Paras infestation that someone has to take care of), I’m going to need to hear your stories! Tweet me/us @JennaBusch/@Nerdist and tell us the rarest Pokémon you’ve found so far, how you’ve freaked non-players out (I ended up on a playground taking pictures) and the craziest thing you’ve seen so far. Have you been called out by little kids yet? We want to know![brightcove video_id=”5031190408001″ brightcove_account_id=”3653334524001″ brightcove_player_id=”2bfa565b-5412-4cfd-9211-6269880b8a5e”]
