The world of Niantic's Pokemon Go has led some people on amazing journeys. People have been using the app to meet friends, go on dates Pokemon catching, explore parts of cities that they otherwise would completely ignore. It's getting people out and about into the real world with the clever use of Gyms, PokeStops, and the ever-popular Lures.

One of the coolest parts of the game is that PokeStops are very cool cultural landmarks, sculptures, murals, and everything in between. Anyone can submit to add and remove PokeStops and Gyms.

Only thing is: the 'everything in between' has been a bit questionable sometimes as we've been finding out. People have been submitting some gems to the new subreddit r/ShittyPokeStops. This is a collection of the best (er, worst) and creepiest PokeStops that Pokemon Go players have found so far.

1. This PokeStop is literally just an ashtray.
