It was our 25th straight hour on a Pokémon Go safari. We were deliriously chasing an elusive one, force-quitting our app with frequency as we closed in. Suddenly, our prey was in sight: Its name was HOPATCONG. We scoured the Pokédex for more information before finger-swiping our PokéBall, but came up empty. Was it an undiscovered creature? A new breed of Pokémon?! No… it was a town in New Jersey.
