The Strangest Places Pokémon Go is Sending its Players

Pokémon Go is the best mostly broken game I’ve ever played. It crashes in the middle of battles. There are constant server issues. It’s a menace to my health and well-being that has burrowed itself into my heart like a blood clot. But as the game claws its way to usability, players are realising that Niantic did a really half-arsed job setting up the in-game locations, and Pokémon Go is sending people to some really strange places.
