The newly launched, augmented reality game, Pokémon GO, has recently taken the world by storm, with the average time users spend on the game daily surpassing both Whatsapp and Instagram. According to data from SimilarWeb, Pokémon GO has already been installed in five percent of Android smartphones. As a comparison, the popular dating app, Tinder, is installed in two percent of smartphones. It’s good to know that most people have their priorities straight.

And it’s not just a bunch of nerdy high school students who dream of being the next Ash Ketchum either. Multiple celebrities have taken to social media to express their newfound obsession with the game.

Of course, it’s no surprise that Zack Martin is a fan.

Even Chrissy Teigen is a player!

The game, currently only available in Australia, New Zealand and the US, is set to launch in Europe and Asia not long from now.

The struggle is real for Wiz Khalifa.

Guess Luna Lovegood enjoys interacting with strange creatures outside the world of Hogwarts too.

Trevor Noah has had some awkward encounters.

‘Gravity’ singer, John Mayer spent almost a hundred dollars to advance the game quicker.

Getting Bulbasaur as his starter Pokemon was a proud moment for Nyle DiMarco.

Following reports that a woman, on her quest to find her own Pokémon, had come across a man’s corpse, Joe Jonas might not be wisest.

Is it really a shock that most people find delight in catching Pokémon in real life though? The game, which has already given Nintendo’s stock a huge boost, was clearly headed for success.

And for all you grown-ups out there who still think this is just a boring old kid’s game, Trevor Noah sums it up best:
