NEW ORLEANS -- An old fountain in the Lower Garden District is now a site for the Pokemon GO craze -- or least homage to the game.
Sometime Sunday morning, a Pikachu statue, constructed from fiberglass but made to look like bronze, was placed in the fountain in a small park near the intersection of Terpsichore and Prytania streets.
It is unknown who placed the statue in the park or exactly when it was placed in the defunct fountain, but the statue appears to pay homage to the Pokemon GO, a location-based augmented reality game.
One of the most sought after creatures is Pikachu.
Many people seemed to be in disbelief and had to see for the statue for themselves.
