Yes it was a stunt, that could have ended very badly. What if a train did come or the guy tripped and actually hurt himself, and someone went in to rescue him... Again just another idiot and in the end over pokeman game.

It was a stunt that someone could have gotten seriously injured doing, not to mention they where filming with no film permit.

I like the game it's very creative and it does seem to bring people out of their homes. That in itself is great, but there needs to be control as to were the Pokemon creatures can be located. This game has already cause too much unnessisary incidents. I am sure there will be changes to the game coming soon. I just hope it comes before someone gets seriously injured.
