Pikachu gets revenge on Pokémon Go Players

With all the hype and controversy surround Pokemon GO, has anyone stopped to think how the Pokémon might feel, hunted day and night with no place to hide?

A group of pranksters in the city of Basel in north-west Switzerland have taken it upon themselves to enact justice on players giving them a taste of their own medicine, writes John Helen.

The pranksters dressed up as Pikachu and threw oversized pokéballs at unsuspecting users of the app with some hilarious consequences.

Maybe they'll be a bit more aware of their surroundings next time they play.
