This Pokemon thing is getting a little out of control. Over this past weekend residents of the Lower Garden neighborhood in New Orleans woke up to discover a gigantic “Pokemonument” in Coliseum Musuem park. The bronze statue is obviously celebrating the Pokemon Go craze, appears to have been put up overnight anonymously. Local police have no plans to take it down.
The statue was placed in the middle of a broken fountain and has already seemed to attract many people. As of right now there are only guesses to who made the statue.
Karen Reese, the vice-president of the street association, reported seeing a “mysterious man” in the park Monday night. It looks like the statue is there to stay, really interesting to see something like this over a video game, at least in the United States.
