While the latest data suggests that Pokémon GO has peaked in terms of popularity, it's still one of the most-played games on the planet right now - as these chaotic scenes from Taiwan attest.

Various sightings in the country have triggered massive stampedes as people rush to catch rare monsters. On one hand, it's a remarkable indication of just how mainstream this piece of software has become, but on the other, it's slightly worrying to see sane people reduced to a herd of wild animals at the slightest sniff of a virtual 'mon.
