NEW YORK – A video posted to YouTube shows a massive crowd of apparent Pokemon Go players rushing into Central Park.

The “stampede” took place Thursday night and involved hundreds of people around the edge of Central Park who were rushing after a highly-sought Pokemon, according to the video’s YouTube description.

In the popular game, some digital monsters are more desirable than others. The players rushing into the park were looking for a rare “Vaporeon,” according to the video’s uploader.
