Pokemon Go vandals Meridian Hill Park

Someone recently painted an apparent reference to Pokemon Go on a sign in Meridian Hill/Malcolm X Park.

A vandal spray painted the words “Team Mystic” on an information sign in Meridian Hill Park some time within the past few days. Mystic, also known as the “blue team,” is a faction in Pokemon Go, the popular new smartphone game where of teams of Pokemon trainers battle for control of landmarks and buildings across the U.S.

Redditor “ashplowe” first spotted the graffiti yesterday.

“So this happened in my local park,” ashplowe wrote. “Let’s be better than this.”

  • Unfortunately, there’s a lot of spray painted (non-creative) tagging in Meridian Hill Park all the time. Last time it was slogans on/near the statue of Dante. Park services are quick to clean it up, but it’s not just a Pokemon thing. (pic from April)
