No luchador Pikachu here
We've already reported on the fact that Pokémon GO has reached the level of awareness that permits it a mention during a WWE broadcast, and now the popular app is making its presence felt once more, this time to the detriment of one of the organisation's tag teams, The Shining Stars. During the team's match against Enzo...
Xavier Woods drops the P-Bomb (and we don't mean Power)
We recently reported on the fact that Pokémon GO has reached the level of awareness that it's being parodied by The Simpsons, and today we've got another example of the app's power to penetrate the consciousness of the mainstream media. In short, it got a mention during a WWE broadcast, which...
