Werner Herzog doesn’t understand Pokemon Go | Games | Geek.com

Werner Herzog is a special kind of filmmaker. His style so traditional and specialized and dry for most that he’s almost become a joke unto himself. And that’s not a bad thing. He’s a great director, and his cameo in Rick and Morty was amazing, but he’s always presented himself as a bit… disconnected.

In an interview with tech site, The Verge, Herzog said that he didn’t “know what Pokemon Go is and what all these things are.” Adding that he made his first phone call at 17 and that he refuses to have a cell phone “for cultural reasons.” Emily Yoshida, the interviewer, explains the augmented reality game to Herzog and the results are positively fantastic.

At first, she says that the game overlays a digital world on top of the real world, to which Herzog asks, “When two persons in search of a Pokemon clash at the corner of Sunset and San Vicente is there violence? Is there murder?”

“They do fight virtually,” Yoshida responds.

“Do they bite each other’s hands? Do they punch each other?” Herzog asks.

It’s all very strange, to see someone who has had such a strong impact on culture, particularly geek-ephemera, not really comprehend how Pokemon works or what it is. Later in the interview, he says that these things come and go, implying that the whole thing isn’t terribly important.

Herzog closes the line of Pokemon-themed questions plainly stating that Yoshida would “have to give [him] a cell phone, which [he’s] not going to use anyway.”

Personally, I can’t fathom a creatively-driven person shutting off an entire realm of experiences without giving it a lot of thought, but there you go.
