The 19-year-old and 16-year-old, whose names have not been released, were searching for a Marowak and Tauros when they parked in front of the man's house around 1.30am on Saturday.

The 37-year-old man had been sleeping in his Palm Coast home when he was awaken by a loud noise.

He looked outside and saw the teens' car and grabbed his handgun before he went to confront them.

Authorities said as he approached the car, the man heard one of the teens ask the other 'Did you get anything?'

He thought they may have just broken into his home and stepped in front of the car, ordering the teens not to move, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

The man claimed the vehicle sped toward him and he moved out of its path and opened fire, thinking the teens were 'attempting to strike him', police said.

After the car fled the man called authorities, but there was no sign of the vehicle anywhere.

But police received a phone call from the 19-year-old's mother the next morning, saying her son had revealed he was playing Pokemon Go when a man came outside and shot at him.

The teens told police they heard gunfire after one of them asked 'Did you catch him?' and then sped away.

They at first decided not to report anything to authorities because they had not been hit and did not find any damage on the car, thinking someone had just been 'trying to scare them'.

But the next day they discovered bullet holes in the rear tire, hub cap and fender.

The incident remains under investigation.
