(Funny) Player Trolls Westboro Baptist Church In Pokemon Go

Pokemon Go is displayed on a cell phone in Los Angeles on Friday, July 8, 2016. Just days after being made available in the U.S., the mobile game Pokemon Go has jumped to become the top-grossing app in the App Store. And players have reported wiping out in a variety of ways as they wander the real world, eyes glued to their smartphone screens, in search of digital monsters. (AP Photo/Richard Vogel)


Of all the amazing things that can/have/will happen in the newest craze, Pokemon GO, this might top them all. I’m gonna go ahead and assume everyone reading this at least KNOWS about the new smartphone game, but just in case, here is a quick explanation of what you’re seeing in this incredible picture:

Pokemon GO allows players to walk around and capture Pokemon using their phone camera in real time. It also allows players to capture and hold “gyms” while representing a red/yellow/blue team. Westboro Baptist church happens to be one of these gyms. User Pinknose took it upon themselves to capture the WBC gym with a Clefairy, appropriately named LOVEISLOVE.


The church that protests funerals of soldiers, gay people, and pretty much anything respectable answered with a tweet of this picture:



I think we can all agree that Pinknose wins by unanimous decision.


B’lieve dat.




P.S. I really hope Pinknose increases the CP of that Clefairy or they’ll get taken over within the hour. I’m on my way to Kansas right now to help out.
