Pokémon Go players are sending d*ck pics and they are seriously disturbing

Joe Williams July 14, 2016

When will the madness end?

The latest Pokémon GO trend is a deeply disturbing one – Diglett dick picks.

Players are now composing photos of the innocent little Pokémon bursting through zippers across the globe, looking slightly confused as to how they got there.

The massively popular new smartphone game, which was officially released in the UK today, tracks players’ location and allows them to ‘hunt’ for Pokémon in the real world.

The game – which has been praised for allowing users to play as non-binary – pulls data from Google Maps, which means that Pokemon, gyms and Pokéstops are automatically generated across the entire world as you travel in real life.

However, there’s some places that you probably shouldn’t be focused on catching Pokemon – as demonstrated by appeals from the Holocaust Museum and former Auchwitz concentration camp, both of which have been listed as in-game ‘PokéStops’.

The two locations, which commemorate the millions of Jewish people who were persecuted alongside other minorities including the disabled and LGBT people, have both put out appeals asking people to stop hunting for Pokémon on their premises.
