It’s not even been out for two weeks and already Pokémon Go has become the talking point the world over. From sparking a fitness revolution, helping with people’s mental health and even helping people find love, the new mobile app has not only fulfilled many people’s dreams of becoming a real life Pokémon trainer but has also become a resounding success. In fact, it’s now so popular that it’s surpassed Tinder as the most popular app on Android smartphones. It’s literally taking over people’s lives (and inspiring some hella cool nail art, too).
For those unaware, Pokémon Go is an augmented reality game that utilizes GPS tracking to help you become a real life Pokémon Master.
However, for one user Pokémon Go has helped expose something else: her cheating boyfriend.
Due to the app’s reliance on GPS, it makes a digital footprint of where you caught your Pokémon, something that Evan Scribner, from Queens, New York, didn’t quite take into account when he was caught cheating through the app.
Speaking to the New York Post, Evan said how he had gone to his ex-girlfriend’s house in Bushwick, Brooklyn, where he just happened to come across a Pokémon.
“She saw that I had caught a Pokémon while at my ex’s house,” Scribner said, before going on to explain that, when questioned by his partner as to why he was stalking around his ex’s neighbourhood, he couldn’t come up with a good reason.
“She found out last night at my house,” he told the paper, “and hasn’t contacted me since then.”
Yikes! This is kinda hilarious, tragic and embarrasing all at the same time, isn’t it.
