This is how Pokémon Go covers the world in Pidgeys and Rattata

Ever wondered how the millions of common Pokémon covering the planet actually got there?

As it turns out, he’s not only using Pokémon to showcase his 3D skills. In this medieval scene we see a battle just like it would have happened back in that day and age — with a lot of rubbery objects flying around.

That's one way to spread pokémon across the world on The Verge
