“You want to watch videos of Pikachu doing what?!

With the wild success of Pokémon GO, many people who had forgotten about their love for the franchise have suddenly found it rekindled in a new, very intimate way.

Although, perhaps a little too intimate.

The adult website PornHub recently released statistics showing that searches for “Pokémon porn” have exploded in the past week.

▼ And that’s just as of July 11.
It’s only gotten bigger the longer it’s been out.

▼ Men are the majority of “Pokémon porn” searchers, though not by as much as many might think. Unsurprisingly, it’s most popular with the younger crowd.

▼ Although there is one twist almost no one saw coming: most of the searches come from Central/South America. What’s that all about?

According to a press release by xhamster, spokesperson Alex Hawkins had this to say about the recent trend:

“In the last five days we have seen a giant shift in porn searches. Our top searches, which usually consist of ‘MILF,’ ‘Teen,’ and ‘Interracial’ have been replaced with ‘Pokemon,’ ‘Pikachu,’ ‘Hentai,’ and ‘Anime.'”

But that’s not all! Pokémon GO isn’t just taking down popular searches on porn websites, it’s done something no one ever dreamed possible: it’s even more popular than porn itself.

▼ So that brings up an important question:
which team is YouPorn on?

Taking their defeat in stride, YouPorn wrote in another press release:

“[YouPorn] is giving Pokémon Go its very own badge for its recent conquering of the internet, as well as the hearts and minds of Americans. In Pokemon, you earn badges for defeating gym leaders. YouPorn concedes the Wood Badge to Nintendo for dethroning porn as a top search term.”

If you’re feeling inspired to do some “Pokémon porn” research of your own, then by all means, you do you – in the privacy of your home. Please be sure to keep all Pokéballs and Digletts to yourself when chasing wild Pokémon outside.
