Forget Yelp: Pokémon Go Players Make Eating Decisions Based on Where the Pokémon Are

Forget Yelp: Pokémon Go Players Make Eating Decisions Based on Where the Pokémon Are

Some restaurants are embracing and taking advantage of the opportunity, others are put off

In Pokémon Go, players ‘travel across the land’ and ‘search far and wide’ to catch ‘em all.

The Pokémon Go craze is not only blowing up social media feeds and everyday conversation, but it is affecting businesses, namely restaurants, as well.

According to Business Insider, players are making restaurant decisions based on how many Pokémon are in the area (sorry, Yelp).

And though some business owners are unamused by unwelcome customers entering their establishments with the sole intent of catching Pokémon, others are using the newfound attention to their advantage.

Restaurants lucky enough to be situated near PokeStops – local points of interest that give players items – attract players without much effort at all. Sarah Anne Williams tweeted that a bar/restaurant reported a 10 percent increase in business since the game came out.

Owners of establishments that aren’t PokeStops or located near one can take matters into their own hands by playing the game and purchasing lures to bring Pokémon, and customers, to them.

Restaurant owners are taking to social media to advertise that presence of Pokémon on their premises and retweeting photos of customers catching Pokémon at their establishments.

The Ditz

The Ditz is a character whose defining characteristic is profound stupidity or quirkiness. In fiction, female ditzes tend to be sweet and naive, while male ditzes tend to be oafish but lovable (whether if they were inverted or not gender-wise). Either way, they're almost always friendly and sociable (or very kindhearted, honest, & humble in some instances), something that can't be said for the polar opposite side of this trope. The Ditz is written to appear unintentionally funny or humorous. In a drama series, they provide comic relief.

Unlike The Fool, The Ditz is seldom in any real danger and, even if they were, luck can often be counted on to save them. Though darker, or more cynical stories, tend not to favor them.

A good looking Ditz (of either sex) might be a Brainless Beauty. An independently wealthy Ditz is an Upper-Class Twit. A Ditz that's a Mighty Glacier (Most commonly as The Big Guy or The Brute) is a Dumb Muscle. A Sexy Secretary of this class would be a Ditzy Secretary.

A more competent if lucky Ditz will often become The Fool. Taken to its weirder extreme, the Ditz can evolve into a Cloudcuckoolander.

One reason you can find The Ditz on so many TV shows is that it gives the audience someone to feel superior to. No matter how stupid one might be, you are still smarter than The Ditz. In certain settings, this trait may also leave them suspect to be accused of having an Ambiguous Disorder to justify their general behavior.

See also: Asian Airhead, Genius Ditz, Obfuscating Stupidity, Dumb Blonde, and The Klutz (who can relate with having a foolish persona). Can overlap with This Loser Is You, but isn't the same thing.

In extreme cases, if the character dies because of their stupidity, see Too Dumb to Live. If the character puts others in danger because of their stupidity, see Lethally Stupid. May overlap with Idiot Hero.
