Hundreds of Pokémon GO players crowd Robson Square (PHOTOS)

Jul 22 2016, 4:37 pm

It was a banner day for Pokémon GO players on Thursday.

After a mob looking to catch ’em all took over the Vancouver Art Gallery with promises of free WiFi, phone charging, and lures galore, a huge group of Poké-addicts arrived en masse for yet another meet-up just across the street later that evening.

Enroot Meals hosted a meet-up where they planted 120 lures in Robson Square. Unsurprisingly, hundreds of people showed up, and organized chaos ensued.

Here are 14 photos and videos of the madness.

Look at these fools. I’m one of them. lol #pokemongo #pokemon #vancouver #robsonsquare
