State to Take Control of Pokémon Go Mania

Pokemon Go

The latest craze to hit the market is Pokémon Go, where players use their phone to track down virtual Pokémon characters outdoors. The Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) is conscious of the vast numbers of players and therefore has set out to manage the situation.

First, all Pokémon players will be required to obtain a license to hunt Pokémon in Connecticut and pay $75.00 for the license, plus another ten bucks for the permit if hunting on state property.

Second, strict limits will be placed on the number of Pokémon that can be caught each day.

Commissioner of DEEP and noted stamp collector Rob Klee explained it like this. “Our charge is to protect and manage environmental resources and wildlife in Connecticut, both real and artificial. We want to ensure that we never run out of our precious native Pokémon.”

Noted Pokémon trainer Ash Ketchum couldn’t be reached for comment. Since he is an anime character and does not actually exist.

(Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly reported that Klee said this was a ridiculous idea. Boardman apologizes for this error and should have known better)
