Yesterday, a tweet from what appeared to be a FIFA World Cup Twitter account said the Japanese soccer team arrived in Brazil in a Pokémon jet. And people fell for it. Lots of people.
The tweet was retweeted over 7,000 times. USA Today, The Sporting News, SB Nation, The Toronto Sun, and even CBS Sports believed the hoax and mistakenly reported that Samurai Blue arrived in Brazil in a Pokémon jet.
