Pokémon Go Causes an Epic Stampede in Taiwan After Snorlax Appears

    While the Pokémon Go craze might’ve plateaued in the U.S., it’s still hot in countries where it’s newly-released.

    In a video taken in Taipei, Taiwan, a Snorlax allegedly appeared causing what looks like thousands of people rushing to catch it.

    In the video’s description, the uploader says that a large group of people waited for the light to turn green before crossing the street, which caused the stampede.

    A similar incident happened in Central Park in New York last month shortly after the game’s released.
