For the past few days, we've been bombarded with articles and Facebook posts about app-of-the-moment, Pokémon Go. It's powerful enough that it's uniting gamers worldwide. On the flipside, it's also tearing relationships apart.

Case in point: Evan Scribner told news and entertainment website New York Post in an interview that his girlfriend used the app to bust him "canoodling with an ex-flame." In case you've been hiding under a rock, the mobile game uses geo-location features to record spots where a Pokémon can be caught.

Scribner said his girlfriend looked at his activity in the game. That's when she noticed that he recently snagged a Pokémon in his ex's neighborhood. He wasn't able to come up with an excuse so he decided to confess.

"She saw that I had caught a Pokémon while at my ex's house. She found out last night [Sunday night] at my house and hasn't contacted me since then," he recalls.

Evan isn't the only one whose relationship the massive game has messed up. There are several other people out there who have lost their SOs because of it.

Such as these people...

These guys only pay their GFs a visit when they've got some Pokémon in the area...

Seriously, what's wrong with you, bros?

Maybe this will do the trick...

Pokémon Go—It's all fun and games until someone gets hurt, eh?
