A new Pokemon Go stampede video surfaced. This time from Japan.

A Snorlax caused a huge stampede of Pokemon Go trainers in Taipei a week ago. Now there is footage of a Pokemon Go stampede out of the Pokemon homeland. A very rare Lapras Pokemon spawned that a large crowd of Japanese Pokemon Go players is after in the video below.

Lapras are water and ice Pokemon and are very powerful. It is usually found near lakes, shores or rivers. The other way to get a Lapras is to hatch a 10km egg.

While reportedly the number of daily Pokemon Go users has dropped significantly, the video is proof that the Pokemon Go craziness is far from over.

Like with the Pokemon Go stampede in Taiwan, it would be interesting to know which Pokemon Go tracker everybody is using. Niantic has still not rolled out the new nearby in-app Pokemon tracker. Trainers have to rely on unofficial 3rd party Pokemon Go maps and finder, like FastPokeMap.

Niantic has made changes with the latest Pokemon Go app release last week that are supposed to block 3rd party Pokemon Go scanners, but so far all Pokemon Go tracker are still operational. It is possible that Niantic waits until the in-app Pokemon finder is fully released with activating the new security measures that include Captcha.

As long as Niantic is not rolling out the Pokemon tracker feature in the app to all trainers, here is a list of available Pokemon Go maps, trackers and notifiers. Using any 3rd party Pokemon Go software can get your account permanently banned.
