Just about everyone is aboard the Pokémon Go hype train, and the pro League of Legends scene is no exception. Whether its pro players, spectators or casters, everyone is trying to become the very best, like no one ever was.
The casters even joked about how a Pikachu was found in the studio, in this cute clip from Friday’s NA LCS games.
As expected, Twitter was popping off about the player’s experiences with the game. How do they even have time to grind? Aren’t they supposed to be doing...I don’t know, pro stuff? The game isn’t out in Europe yet, so there aren’t any tweets from EU players. Sorry. (BibleThump.)

If you truly love your Pokemon, you won't give them to the shady Professor who processes them into candy for you (not even the 10 CP ones)— Eugene Park (@Pobelter) July 10, 2016
However, I do not, and am gladly stockpiling these candies to bolster the strongest of my Pokemon roster.— Eugene Park (@Pobelter) July 10, 2016
