If you haven’t realized by now, Pokémon Go is kind of a big deal. Like, just about everyone and their mother is playing this game, which blends the real world with the virtual world of Pokémon, using real locations to encourage players to search far and wide in the real world to discover Pokémon.
Of course, like the traditional games, some Pokémon are more rare than others. I wouldn’t necessarily say Vaporeon (an evolution of Eevee) is necessarily “rare,” but apparently it’s enough to get players in New York to stampede through Central Park in attempt to catch it.
The video, below, is quite amazing, as literally hundreds (if not thousands) of Pokémon GO players race to catch the Vaporeon. According to reports, the large crowd gathered at about 11:00pm EDT on Thursday.
I don’t know about you, but where I live, my area is filled with Eevees, making it quite easy to evolve. However, the catch with Eevee is that it has three evolutions (Jolteon, Flareon, and Vaporeon) and it picks one at random.
However, some players have discovered a little easter egg in the game that could allow you to specifically choose which Eeveelution. Check out the trick here.
