The world is officially addicted to Pokémon Go, reports claim.
We’ve seen Central Park become a bestial rat race for Vaporeon, Pokémon porn becoming the most searched for thing on Pornhub, and even former Nazi death camp, Auschwitz, having to remind people that it’s not okay to go Pokémon hunting in their grounds – because, apparently, it was really hard to figure that out beforehand.
But now, Pokémon Go is actually splitting up families – after a mum in Scotland decided she had no choice but to delete the highly addictive app from her ten-year-old boy’s phone, reports Complex.
How did he react? Like anybody else who’d spent countless hours chasing after Kabutops. He ran away.
Oh, and because the world is a cruel, cruel place – the whole thing was documented live on his sister’s Snapchat – and then posted on Twitter for all the world to see.

Fortunately, the little guy didn’t exactly run off and join the French Foreign Legion, but merely went to a close relative’s house so that he could have a bit of a calm down.
But that didn’t stop him from taking all of his clothes and football medals with him.
It isn’t known whether he’s back at home yet.
Some say he’s still out there…
