Day 193: How to tell the difference between someone playing Pokemon Go and any other person using their smartphone

Monday, July 11, 2016

Having trouble telling apart someone playing Pokemon Go from any old person browsing Facebook or texting on the street? Here are five simple clues:

  1. Pokemon Go players walk slowly, in circles, into things, without purpose, like they’re sleepwalking. Facebookers and txters still walk into people, but they walk in straight lines.
  2. When a Pokemon Go player stops, they’ll stop in the most inconvenient places possible – in the middle of the street, in front of oncoming traffic, blocking thoroughfare… Most Facebookers and txters have the sense to stand to the side.
  3. Pokemon Go players travel in packs and are dressed like they belong in a D&D pyjama party. Facebookers and txters look like regular people.
  4. Pokemon Go players can’t resist telling the nearest person to them what they just caught. Kind of like vegans, cross-fitters and anti-vaxxers.
  5. Pokemon Go players use their index fingers in broad swipes like they’re about to cast Wingardium Leviosa. Facebookers tend to poke, while txters use their thumbs.
