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.
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.
