These are the weirdest, wildest Pokémon GO stories so far

Pokémon GO is a phenomena. A masterpiece. A rare shiny Mewtwo of the smartphone world, if you will. 

The augmented reality app from the techy minds that helped create Google Maps has been an unprecedented hit in every nation it's arrived in so far. Within two days of its launch in the US it's already been installed on over 5 per cent of all Android devices in the country - seeing millions of players wander around their neighbourhoods attempting to catch'em all. 

But with millions of Poké-hopefuls taking to the streets, countless weird and wonderful stories are following in their wake. These are the best high level tales we've heard so far.
