Video: Pokemon Go Mixes Pretty Well With Parkour

Popular YouTuber Devin Super Tramp is well-known for his original videos which mix parkour with famous video game franchises like Assassin's Creed. Yesterday, the content creator published a new parkour video featuring—what else than—Pokemon GO, the latest mobile hit developed by Niantic Labs. In the video that you can see below, Devin got together with famous parkour practitioners Calen Chan and Ronnie Shalvis who dressed up as Pokemon and did their best to escape Team Rocket members eager to catch them. Sounds ridiculous? That's because it absolutely is, so it's worth watching if you're looking for a laugh or just need something to fuel your Pokemon addiction while you're waiting for those Pokestop timers to go down so that you can collect your pokeballs.

Despite being primarily made for giving you a quick laugh, the video is still pretty impressive from an athletic standpoint as it features numerous crazy flips, jumps, and risky moves that will get your blood pumping just from looking at them. Imagine how quickly your Poke-eggs would hatch if you knew parkour!

As for Pokemon Go itself, the game's Japanese launch has recently been delayed and tens of millions of players are still waiting for some major bug fixes. The three-step bug which makes tracing Pokemon in-game virtually impossible is the largest issue currently present in the game and many gamers have already started petitioning Niantic to hurry up with implementing a trading system and other new content. And while the former Google startup is definitely planning on introducing new content to the game and has actually already promised bi-weekly updates, Niantic is currently focused on working out the server issues with the game caused not only by tens of millions of eager Pokemon trainers but also some malevolent hacking groups. Despite not being perfectly polished, Pokemon Go is still rapidly growing. Latest reports suggest the game has already surpassed 30 million downloads and has earned over $35 million in only two weeks since the initial rollout started. Whether this growth is sustainable or not remains to be seen but there's no doubt 2016 is and will be the year of Pokemon.
