The new fad of Pokémon Go has lit our phones on fire. Since its initial release, it has officially become the biggest mobile app in U.S. history. Pokémon debuted in the late ’90s and became an instant hit with American audiences. The franchise has spun many television series (which still continues today) along with plenty of games and merchandise to go along with it.
As a Pokémon fanboy, there was no doubt in my mind that I was going to download the new app that features the generation of Pokémon I grew up with. The game is extremely addicting to play, as I cannot seem to give up catching all sorts of rare pocket monsters. After all, you gotta catch ’em all right?
With a new game spreading like wildfire, it was only a matter of time before memes began popping up all over the internet. Some have been rather lame, while others are pure genius. This list will consist of, in no particular order, the 10 most hilarious Pokémon GO memes that I've found so far. If you know who made any of these, let me know so I can credit them!
