Part 1

(Reporter is downstage speaking toward the audience as players such as Mandy are walking around with their phones in front of them trying to spot PokyMonsters)

REPORTER
Concern has grown over the new PokyMonster app which you see the people playing behind me in the park here. One player stumbled into a dead body near this park while another player, a young player, has gone missing. Parents are urged to talk with your children about this game and make sure they stay safe. Beware of invites from people you don’t know and never go somewhere alone, especially at night.

(Reporter exits and Tom enters with Randy)

TOM
Okay, when you see a PokyMonster, you hit the cage button.

RANDY
I don’t see anything.

TOM
You have to look through your phone.

RANDY
Oh wow… that’s weird.

TOM
See there’s one.  A PokyCho.

MANDY
Those are the easiest to catch. I have a million of those. They’re so stupid. They practically jump into your traps.

TOM
I’m teaching him… he’s new.

MANDY
I’m after something way better than that.

TOM
Yeah, yeah. Excuse us please. PokyCatcher in training here.

RANDY
So how do I catch it?

TOM
Okay, so you get the cage like this… see.

RANDY
Yeah… cage ready.

TOM
Now throw it at him.

RANDY
I’m gonna get you PokyCho!

(RANDY throws the smartphone)

TOM
No! Don’t throw the phone!

RANDY
I don’t get it.  This is weird. Can we go get some pizza instead?

TOM
We’re here because there’s rumors that a rare PokyMonster is being released today.  If we get enough people here with baits then we might attract it.

RANDY
Baits?  Geez, there’s so much to remember.

TOM
Not really… cages, baits, treats and grooming.

MANDY
I have a level 99 bait.  It’s sure to come for that.

RANDY
That looks like a pizza!  I wish I could eat it.  I’m hungry.

MANDY
Sorry… baits are for PokyMonsters only.

RANDY
How do you all do this?  There’s nothing really there.  You all look strange wandering around chasing after ghosts.

MANDY
I caught a ghost PokyMonster yesterday.

TOM
A PokySpook?

MANDY
Yes.

TOM
No way!  I’ve been after it for a week.

MANDY
And I got the only one in the city.

TOM
I’m very jealous.

RANDY
You are all so weird.
