There have been a number of stories circulating around Pokémon Go and what it’s been responsible for. From people getting robbed because of the game, to leading a teen to a dead body. You can now add to that ever-growing list that it’s been used to expose a cheating boyfriend.

A guy called Evan Scribner says he’s been dumped because his girlfriend discovered he was cheating on her thanks to Pokémon Go‘s use of geolocation. The game uses Google Maps to locate both the player and for the player to then locate and hunt Pokémon.

Scribner told the New York Post that his girlfriend was snooping on his phone when she noticed he’d been catching Pokémon at his former flame’s abode in the Brooklyn neighborhood of New York. Scribner lives in Sunnyside, Queens and couldn’t explain why he’d been near where his ex lives.

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

Oh dear. Pokémon Go is now ruining relationships. Although the real lesson to learn here is that you shouldn’t really be cheating on your girlfriend. And also that Pokémon Go, like all our apps, is collating vast amounts of data on us.

In other Pokémon Go news, over the weekend a Vaporeon caused a stampede in Central Park when it suddenly appeared and hundreds of players were there. “Special shout out to the guy at the start of the video that jumped out of his car, left the engine running and darted off to claim the grand prize.” says YouTuber Dennis450D who filmed it.

Check out the craziness below.
