Here are some great Pokémon Go memes!

14th July, 2016

Walking with your eyes trained on your mobile phone can be dangerous but gaming company Nintendo don’t seem to care. In fact, they’ve coupled that danger by actually getting notoriously sheltered gamers to out into the real world with their Pokémon Go app.

In case you’re living under a rock, Pokémon Go is an augmented reality game that mixes real-world elements with an overlay on your mobile phone that can turn landscapes into a Pokémon party.

The game player’s goal is to "catch ’em all", as the Pokémon franchise’s slogan suggests, and it’s become a wildly popular pastime in just a week. Pokémon Go has already outstripped the Tinder app and porn in terms of popularity, and SimilarWeb estimates that by the end of the week, on Android, Pokémon Go will have more active users than Twitter.

With this flurry of activity have come the memes, and here are a few of our favourites.
