Pokemon Go is the hottest game to hit the market in forever. People are currently trying to catch their Pikachus and Fitzybutts (honestly, I don’t know what they’re called) but they’re paying the price. And by paying the price, I mean they’re accidentally getting some exercise.
Just look at these poor souls complaining about their sore body parts from playing the augmented reality game:

My feet and legs are so sore from Pokemon go today. I got an hour of sleep but I took over a gym and gained 5 levels so it was pretty good

I ran for a good minute or two yesterday for Pokemon Go and my lower legs are sore. I could blame my shoes or accept how unfit I am.

And there are many more like it out there in the Tweetsphere; this was honestly just a taste of the sore leg lamentations. It almost feels like a global conspiracy to make people go outside. Touche, Pokémon Go. Touche.
