If you spot Pikachu in Memorial Park in North Royalton after hours, you'll have to wait until it reopens to go hunting or face a citation.

The North Royalton Police Department is citing Pokemon Go players for trespassing if they're caught playing the game when the park is closed. Last Saturday around 1 a.m., two people were cited for trespassing, according to WEWS. Yesterday, four more people were citing for trying to catch 'em all after hours. Of course, it's certainly not a rarity to be going where you're not supposed to be in pursuit of the game — two people in Toledo were cited for trespassing in the Toledo zoo after hours — but it's still discouraged.



Now, to their credit, finding hours for the park online wasn't the easiest (though we're guessing most kids probably won't be climbing the jungle gym at 1 a.m.), but it's probably best to hunt when the sun is actually out.
