The internet, at the moment, is overwhelmed with just one thing and that is Pokémon Go. The mobile game is only available in a few countries at the moment but it already has millions of players scampering about cities by living the dream of being an actual Pokémon trainer.

This game might not be different from the various versions released on the Gameboy Color or the Nintendo DS but the clever use of GSP tagging ensures that a player has to physically travel from location to location in search of that elusive Squirtle or Bulbasaur.

Niantic has cleverly worked out a formula to enable users to capture water Pokémon near water bodies or grass Pokémon near parks but even the best coding might not work out all the time. The use of a mobile’s camera to see a Pokémon in the real life world does work well in certain cases and not so much in others.

Players would want to be the first to capture all the Pokémon in the game but some of the locations for finding Pokémon leave a lot to be desired. Without further ado, here are the 5 weirdest places Pokémon have been spotted, so far.

Not the greatest place to play a game, the Holocaust Museum in Washington DC seems to have become a Poke Stop, where numerous Pokémon can be found among other items. The museum is a memorial for the victims of Nazism and the authorities are trying their best to remove the venue from the game.

Either way, the game did allow one user to catch a Koffing, though there are reports stating that the image for the poison-gas Pokémon was a hoax, though many other Pokémon have been seen in the museum, such as a Doduo.

Although the museum has three Poke Stops, it could soon stop being the place to catch 'em all.
