How can you tell that Pokémon Go has taken over the world? Well, if you couldn’t tell from losing your friends to their constant walks in the park, or from the sudden need for your usually-couch-potato friends to find a ‘gym,’ then you would have still likely seen one of the many signs going up outside some of your favorite establishments, either cashing in on the latest craze, or being completely befuddled by it.

First we have the annoyed business owners who can’t get into the spirit of things:

Pokemon-go-1

 

Sometimes even the whole mall becomes a no-go area:

Pokemon-Go

 

And obviously, while we would not encourage any of you to trespass on private property:

It does make you wonder how many players they have had to turn away before signage was considered a requirement.

What is becoming increasingly obvious is that these business owners are missing out on a wonderful opportunity here…

You’d think they would get into the entrepreneurial spirit, like these guys who are making it absurdly clear who they favor for a discount:

PokemonGO-Community-G4

 

And these guys; Mystic obviously getting a lot of love out there.

Even going so far as to offering leveled-up freebies. Want to undo all the health benefits from walking the miles required to get to level 21? Now you can we a free twelve-inch pizza!

Or if you’re more into pretzels:

While some business are relying on pun-gent wordplay to lure in the customers…

…others are relying on something to take into account that the average Pokémon Go player is a little older than they used to be:

And while other business will get you to enjoy a lure with a hot slice, a rare creature, or the promise of a  Pokéstop:

…we would like to remind you that there are other places to enjoy yourself other than malls and cafes. Why not hit up the library?

Or school:

Or even Church!

Some business-owners are completely befuddled by the phenomenon, but hey, whatever brings in customers, right?

There is no denying that no matter where you go, the competitive spirit lives on:

And while the fun can be potentially negated by this grumpy landlord who probably hasn’t has fun since before Hammer Pants if you go by their sign (although if they’ve sat through TEN seasons of CSI: Miami then they must be asking for it.)…

6a00e54f10a098883401bb091fe140970d

 

…our grumpy landlord is perfectly offset by this joyous example, letting us know it’s perfectly okay to be silly and enjoy life!

So go out there, play the game, and have fun! There are so many things in life for us to worry about that sometimes remembering to Pokéstop and smell the roses (we went there, apologies) is exactly what we need. Either that or beer:
