Pokemon Go Interrupts Live Weather Broadcast

In what was likely staged, a live weather forecast was interrupted by an anchor playing Pokemon Go.


Pokemon Go has been a focal point of many news broadcasts, but now it's interrupting the broadcast itself. In a staged incident, WTSP 10 News anchor Allison Kropff walked through the middle of meteorologist Bobby Deskins' live weather forecast.

"You guys got to be careful with these phones and these Pokemon, you're just walking around all over the place," Deskins proclaimed, as the news team in the back laughed. Kropff shared a video of the incident, saying, "That moment you realize you may be addicted to Pokemon Go."

Although it's not confirmed, it is likely that this humorous moment was staged in good fun--though we don't think Deskins was in on it. You can check out more funny Pokemon Go moments right here.

News anchors aren't the only ones playing Pokemon Go. There are a ton of celebrities trying to catch 'em all and posting funny anecdotes to social media. Additionally, US marines caught an attempted murder suspect while searching for Pokemon in a California park.

In other Pokemon Go news, a man's house was mislabelled as a Gym, causing players to come at all hours of the day and night to try and claim it for themselves. GameSpot got the opportunity to talk to the man about the situation, and you can read our story here.
