Pokemon Go has been all over the news and social media lately. Some people think the new app is a ridiculous waste of time while others are clinging to the idea of recapturing their childhood. Whatever the case, New York City’s Central Park was swarming with eager participants after a rare find was supposedly “spotted” at the infamous city park.

Due to the game’s system of drawing players into real world locations to catch the various kinds of Pokemon, there have been occasions where a crowd has formed to obtain a rare part of the Pokedex. A video released Friday, which you can see below, shows trainers rushing into Central Park late Thursday night to catch the rare Eevee evolution, Vaporeon.

A similar situation played out Wednesday, July13 in Bellevue, Washington. Hundreds of players stormed a park when Squirtle, another rare Pokémon, appeared there.

Pokemon Go is now the biggest mobile game in U.S. history, and is available on iOS and Android.
