The game, created by Niantic and the Pokémon Company, has re-induced Pokémania - a frenzy over the cute creatures that were originally created in the mid-'90s by Nintendo for the Game Boy console - throughout the world since it was released last week.
Scribner admitted to the New York Post earlier that after a rendezvous with his ex-girlfriend across town, he thought it would be a good idea to open up the Pokemon GO application and catch a few Pokemon since he was in the area.
The hapless gamer couldn't offer his girlfriend any valid excuses for his suspicious whereabouts when she inquired into the matter, which sparked a sad update to Scribner's relationship status. "She found out last night... and hasn't contacted me since then".
But others claim the game has helped their love life.
"Pokemon Go is great for my mental health", one Twitter user wrote on July 11. "I also got laid", @TruthHurtsCrown tweeted Monday.
- Pokémon Go has only been on the market for a week, but we're already getting reports of the scavenger hunt-style cell phone game being potentially hazardous.
Shayla Wiggins was using the mobile phone app to find virtual Pokémon but instead found a dead body.
What do you think about the creative girlfriend utilizing Pokemon Go to corner her boyfriend into admitting he "cheated" on her?
