They won't do that for regular Pokemon games, though.

Don't want nerds hanging around.

Right because a free fountain drink is such a bonus.

No way I could make that much sugar water myself for basically free.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Honestly I think the free drink is about right.

I was blown away when I saw places offering free meals or free admission or otherwise offering unreasonably large compensation just for playing Pokemon at that location.

I have become FAD destroyer of basic business sense and reason.

It was equally dumb to see all the businesses specifically giving the middle finger to people playing Pokemon go. (I mean businesses that aren't specialised or sensitive like medical practises, funeral homes and the like. Is it really that disruptive for people to play phone games in a pub?)

Agreed there, too.

My Dad is having a time of it right now. One of the cemeteries he works with has TWO gyms on the property. And since GO has come out, sadly there has been an upswing in vandalism.

What people often fail to recognize (I mean aside from the part where you're not supposed to be a raging cock) is that the cemetery owns the property, but the families own all of the physical property contained within their burial plot. So that $10,000 marble bench with the mastercrafted inlays and four generations of family commemorated on it that some jackass took a hammer to... that causes problems for everyone. The cemetery is supposed to keep the hundreds of acres of property safe and secure and now they look incompetent. And the family is liable for the cost of the broken monument, unless of course they want to get litigious (they always do).

So. It is understandable that people go to the cemetery at night after dark. They are huge properties and have porous boundaries. Apparently having massive perimeter walls and guards around doesn't make families or visitors comfortable. Who knew? But if you are going to trespass on a cemetery at night to catch Pokemon (and that is what it is, you are trespassing on private property - very few are public) just remember to leave after you caught the Pokemon and try not to indulge in breaking expensive memorials.

This is a family business, I used to live on a cemetery. People come in at night, it's a fact of life. We know it. The cops know it. The community knows it (because they're doing it). The vandalism is out of bounds though. And it is also foolish. I've said it here many times. Headstones will kill you if they fall on you. They will maim you, crush you, and ultimately break you. Don't **** around in cemeteries.

Man, there are some weird names and designs there.  What the hell is going on with Type: Null?  Some kind of man-made chimera?
Probably not a Goat, either.

This Pokémon wearing a mask has been dubbed “Null,” meaning nothing.

The shapes of its front and hind legs are clearly different. The reason is that Type: Null was constructed to synthesize the strengths of various Pokémon, enabling it to adapt to any situation.

The mask fitted to Type: Null’s head is a piece of equipment designed to control its latent powers. It’s extremely heavy, so it also serves to hinder Type: Null’s agility.

To complete a certain mission, there was need of a Pokémon powerful enough to rival those Pokémon often spoken of in mythology.

Yes literally everybody had that idea the moment they saw UB-01.

Also everybody noticed that Lillie, Lusamine and Gladion look like they're related.

So if the ultra beast seen is UB-01 does that mean there are more and if so are there at least 40?
