Pokémon Go has players willing to do anything for a catch.

A Vaporeon, one of the rare evolutions for Eevee in the original game series, popped up within the park and Vimeo user Woodzys caught the stampede on video. Pokémon is a mobile game involving the capture of tiny critters inside of balls.

A similar stampede occurred in Bellevue, Washington. According to Entertainment Weekly, people took off running in order to capture a Squirtle. If you needed proof that Pokemon Go seems to be a phenomenon, you don’t have to look any further.

The game is currently the most popular mobile game in history. There have been several accidents while players have participated with the game. Watch video footage from Central Park below.
