pokemon vibrator test

It's been tested by an expert—and failed.

Pokémon Go players have tried all sorts of ways to get out of walking 5km to hatch their eggs. They’ve been driving around slowly, taping their phones to ceiling fans, and hacking their GPS (though you didn’t hear that from us). Apparently, there was also a myth that you could trick your phone into thinking you’re walking by attaching it to... a vibrator? Regardless, that idea has now been debunked.


Tom Nardone of Vibrators.com, aka an expert in the field of vibrator science, decided to test the theory on YouTube (though, bummer, he didn’t even use an egg vibrator for visual similarities). After taping three phones to three different vibrators and letting them rumble for an hour, the vibrators went between 0.1 and 0.2km. Hardly worth the battery power.

Sorry, sex freaks. If you desperately needed to combine your two passions, there are always the Pokémon dildos

The problem with Pokémon Go no one is talking about
In 1998, a generation of kids was introduced to 10-year old Ash Ketchum- a boy finally old enough to pursue his dream of becoming a world-class Pokémon trainer. Unfortunately, Ash oversleeps on the morning of his ceremony, and by the time he arrives on-site most of the Pokémon have already been given away to other trainers. There’s only one left: an ornery small Pikachu who has zero interest in obeying Ash.
