It turns out Pokemon Go isn’t just a dumb game you can download for your phone. It’s actually helping girlfriends catch their boyfriends cheating on them thanks to how the gameplay is set up. Author Philip K. Dick never predicted this one.
Pokemon Go lost one fan today.
If you’ve never played the game, and really you’re better off not going near it, it asks to be connected to google maps so your location can be a part of the gameplay. When playing, you’re able to look at your phone camera and cartoonish Pokemon figures jump in and out of your surroundings (which you’re supposed to catch). However since it is connected to your location, where exactly you caught these game characters is listed in your game.
This is where the nosey girlfriend comes in. She opened up her boyfriend Evan’s game and saw his recent game play, which also told her where he was at (and it certainly wasn’t anywhere near their house). Low and behold, she saw that he was suspiciously in the same neighborhood as his ex-girlfriend. How did his present girlfriend know where his ex-girlfriend lived? The simple answer is WOMEN JUST KNOW.
Here’s what the newly dumped boyfriend had to say about the situation: “She saw that I had caught a Pokémon while at my ex’s house. She found out last night at my house and hasn’t contacted me since then.”
I guess Evan is now free to play as much Pokemon Go as he wants. Listen, ladies–in order to catch these damn Pokemon, we must venture around the world like James Bond. And much like James Bond, we has to please a lady or two. So, for Evan, maybe this is for the best.
