Woman uses Pokemon Go to catch cheating boyfriend

A man has complained to the New York Post after his girlfriend caught him cheating using Pokemon Go.

Evan Scribner was caught out in his affair after his girlfriend noticed he'd caught a Pokemon at his exes' house.

When he couldn't come up with a good enough explanation for why he was hanging around his ex-girlfriend's house catching Pokemon, she deduced that it wasn't just his Pokeballs he was getting out, and dumped him.

It used to be catching crabs that got cheaters caught. Now it's catching Krabby.


Pokemon Go uses geolocation, recording where you've been and where you were when you caught a Pokemon.

Different Pokemon are also more common in certain areas, so Evan could have told his girlfriend "I knew that was the best area to catch a Krabby". But, fortunately for his girlfriend, he wasn't

“She saw that I had caught a Pokémon while at my ex’s house,” Evan told the NY Daily Post. “She found out last night at my house and hasn’t contacted me since then."

Evan with a look of regret in his eyes that says "If the Pokeball had broken, none of this would have happened".

In other creepier Pokemon news, the holocaust museum in Washington have asked people to stop showing up at the museum to play Pokemon Go. They've also appealed to the creators of Pokemon Go to be excluded from the game, which has seen a Koffing

The museum told the Washington Post that staff were aware and concerned about the appearance.

"Playing the game is not appropriate in the museum, which is a memorial to the victims of Nazism," their communications director told the paper.

"We are trying to find out if we can get the museum excluded from the game."
