Oh, Pokemon Go, there's so much we shouldn't like about you - like how glitchy you are, how many traffic accidents and robberies you've led to, and yet, here we are.

We don't feel the need to explain Pokemon Go to you at this point, because there's no way you haven't heard of it by now.

It seems like everyone everywhere has succumbed to the Pokemon Go craze, and we may be biased when we say this, but New York City is definitely the best place to try your hand at becoming a Pokemon master.

There are Pokestops around every corner, and plenty of places to explore and new, rare Pokemon to discover - but you may have to wade through about a hundred Rattatas and Zubats before you find them.

Many have expressed concern for the safety of avid Pokemon Go players, urging all players not to play and drive. Of course, most of us would assume it'd be safe to play as we stroll around local parks and streets - that's what the game is all about.

But for one Poke-player, exploring NYC's Prospect Park took an unexpected (not to mention wet) turn.

Albert Molina, a 25-year old Brooklyn native, was livestreaming himself playing Pokemon Go in Brooklyn's Prospect Park one night, pursuing a Pokestop that had a lure on it, making it easier to catch wild Pokemon.

After catching a Rattata, Molina was so engrossed with the game that he didn't notice as he stepped right into a moss-covered pond. 

He'd been wandering through several grassy areas, hoping to get to the Pokestops quicker, and had just assumed that the mossy patch he'd stepped on was just another bed of grass.

Molina reported that the pond was approximately 8-feet deep, but was mostly amazed by the fact that his phone actually made it through the ordeal. Not to mention, the entire thing was captured on his live stream. Check it out below. And to think, all that for a Rattata.
