This guy's quest to catch a Pokémon while his wife gave birth is going so viral

That’s dedication.

POKEMON GO HAS taken over the internet this week. If you haven’t heard of it, where have you been?

It’s a new app, that basically combines real life with the Pokemon world, enabling you to ‘catch’ Pokemon in every day situations. The augmented reality app lets you look for Pokémon in the real world, just by holding your phone up to it.

Sounds like the childhood dream, come to life.

People are OBSESSED with it.

This guy even got a warning in work

Basically it’s taking over and ruining lives all over the world.

One man in particular though, had an amazing Thursday. His wife gave birth, but the real achievement was catching a Pidgey, a fictional Pokemon bird.

Jonathan posted the photo of the dilemma on Reddit and it’s gone insanely viral:

When your wife is about to have a baby and a Pokémon shows up and you have to low-key catch it.

Reddit was loving it, and his dedication to the game.


The baby’s name is also a bit great:


Keep filling that Pokédex, and your baby will keep filling its nappy.
