Pokémon Go continues to wreck havoc across the globe even sowing discord in people’s love lives. The New York Post first reported that one young man claims his relationship ended because of the addicting app.

Evan Scribner says his girlfriend found out he was cheating because of Pokémon Go. The app shows users where other players have caught Pokémon; Scribner’s girlfriend apparently saw he had caught a Pokémon at his ex’s place.

“She found out last night at my house and hasn’t contacted me since then,” Scribner said.

People are reporting all sorts of bumps and bruises in the quest to catch ’em all. The augmented reality game allows users to chase, capture, and train Pokémon like audiences have seen in the video game and later television show.
