23 PokéStops That Failed So Hard They Almost Won

"A PokéStop! I bet this is some notable local artwork! Oh no, that is a literal bag of trash."

Posted on

1. Just an ashtray. A normal ashtray. No word on whether it was still as full IRL as it looks here.

2. The world famous tourist spot, 'Hamburger Door Handle.'

Every year thousands of people flock to look upon this simple metallic decoration.

3. Indeed these are Two Big Red Balls. Certainly, they're biggest, reddest balls I've ever seen.

Except for the ones on Wipeout, actually, those are even bigger, though they have roughly the same amount of red.

4. At least they're not dumb, I guess.

Imagine being the person that designed that, and finding out that your art was a PokéStop, and going to see it, and discovering that.

5. Ah yes, young human entertainment, for the young humans. Those young humans. With their entertainment.

6. This is how you label a playground, see.

7. I feel like there is almost definitely a dead squirrel in there. Or possible a raccoon. Certainly some sort of deceased animal with tiny paws.

And they will not evolve or be revived. They will just decompose very slightly.

8. Not only are these not cows, why would cows be PokéStops?!?

9. I... I would still use this PokéStop.

Just carefully, right? It'd be fine.

10. Well, this is just impossibly sad. There should be a rule that to use the PokéStop, you have to play a game of Shuffleboard first.

11. Nice.

12. NICE.

13. OK, stop it now.

14. There are a lot of questions about why this is a good spot for a PokéStop - but honestly, my main one is why the tiny graffiti got it rather than the big one.

15. "Stay out of my territory," says the Bad Man.

16. Better get the kayak out.

17. Great art. Such great art. Art that definitely isn't anything else, but is just art. Decorative art, with the only purpose is to look nice. It'd be a shame if someone ruined it, by, idk, locking their bike to it or something.

18. This is an exact, flawless, entirely perfect recreation of the statue of Liberty, right down to her apron and floppy chefs hat.

This statue really does represent the true values and spirit of America.

19. I can't imagine a crowd of people hanging out around this would ever cause a problem.

20. Fair.

21. Good rock. Top rock. Never seen a better rock.

22. "This technology is incredible! It's going to change how we all interact, how we do everything!" *hangs out next to bin full of shit for a while*

23. Drowning in PokéBalls more like!!! But yes, also water. Also drowning in water.
