POKÉMON GO Is More Popular Than Porn Right Now

If you’ve been online at any point in the past week, you’ve probably come to realize that Pokémon Go is in the midst of a full-fledged internet takeover. It’s the top app in the iOS App Store, and just yesterday, it was revealed that people are using Pokémon Go more than they are social media apps like WhatsApp, Instagram, Facebook, and Snapchat.

Pokémon Go was first released in the U.S. and other territories on July 6. Since about 6:30 p.m. EST on July 10, users have been Googling the game with a greater frequency than they have more flesh-bearing topics. We assumed that being able to catch Pokémon in the real world would be a smashing success, but we had no way of knowing that it would be this big, enough to overtake our sex drives for internet supremacy.

For the record, these two popular online topics have been combined into one, based on a growing subreddit that we won’t link to here so your moms don’t get upset with us. Still, players are making Digletts and Krabbys pop up in suggestively funny places and it’s a grand ol’ hilarious time, so feel free to seek that out if you don’t mind wading through some less savory images.

And of course, there’s always the (SFW enough to be on YouTube) trailer of the Pokémon porn parody Strokémon:
