Pokémon Go craze has taken the world by storm; indeed, it is being referred to as a global cultural phenomenon.
Their frenzied pursuit of Pikachu led the two Canadian teenagers right across the Canadian border into Montana, U.S. The juveniles were then picked up by the U.S. Border Patrol authorities who commented that the two youths were engrossed in their smartphones.
The agency spokesman told the Reuters:
“Both juveniles were so captivated by their Pokémon GO games that they lost track of where they were.”
The pair of adolescents has now been handed over to their respective mothers at a border station in Coutts, Alta.
