Pokémon Go is changing my life (gotta catch ’em all, baby) and it looks like it changed this guy’s life too – though not exactly for the better. New York resident Evan Scribner recently admitted that his relationship ended because his girlfriend found out he was cheating on her, all thanks to the game. Evan, it seems, was “spending time” with his ex-girlfriend at her home, and managed to catch a Pokémon while there.
Unfortunately, once he got home, his current girlfriend started playing around with his phone and noticed the geolocation of said Pokémon. The app told her where the Pokémon was caught, and when her boyfriend had no good reason to explain why he was in his ex-girlfriend’s neighbourhood, she left him.
Scribner told the NY Post that she hasn’t contacted him since she walked out of his house.
