The PokemonGo craze has reached new levels, and even affected the All-Star  Home Run Derby

The number one game in the App Store has driven fans to crash the MLB Home Run Derby in San Diego.

PokemonGo is the game every millennial has dreamed of. The mobile game allows users to “catch them all” by using the device’s GPS and “placing” Pokemon everywhere you go.

Still don’t get it? Watch the video below.

With the hopes to “catch them all,” fans stormed the field in San Diego to catch the mythical Pokemon.

“There was a Squirtle right behind Mike Trout,” one fan pleaded as he was dragged away by PetCo. Field security. “If it were just a common Pokemon, it would not have been worth it. That was worth it.”

Even Chris Berman got into the action, mindlessly chasing imaginary Pokemon across the infield, and nearly throwing out his back, back, back, back, back, back, back, back ,back, back, back, back.

Corey Seager was not happy despite his impressive 15 home runs in the first round of action. He claims a Pikachu caught his eye and prevented him from taking advantage of the situation early in his first couple of swings.

Mark Trumbo put on an impressive show early, saying he relied on the stamina he built up chasing Pokemon to  get through the first round.

No word if Commissioner Rob Manfred will implement Pokemon in any future All-Star Games.

Bartolo Colon also took scenery, and joined in the PokemonGo fun.
