QUIZ: Fact Or Fiction – Real Life ‘Pokémon Go’ Accidents And Injuries

Pokémon Go is dominating the news cycle like few video games before it. We’re not only seeing daily reports on the commercial success of Nintendo’s new mobile app, but also a ton of stories about Pokémon Go players themselves. While many outlets are getting a bit carried away with fear mongering and trying to spin the app’s success as the death of society, it’s hard not to get wrapped up in some of the more bizarre stories that have come out of this latest Pokémon craze.

There have been a bunch of stories about Pokémon Go players being injured and making stupid decisions while they play, but not everything you’ve heard is actually true. We’ve collected some of the best stories that have popped up since the game’s launch and challenge you to figure out which ones are fact and which ones are fiction. You may be surprised …

Take our quiz below and see if you can separate the wheat from the chafe (or in this case, the Wheezings from the Clefairies? Our Pokémon analogies could use some work.) Feel free to share this with your friends and also be sure to let us know about any interesting Pokémon Go stories from your own experiences.
