Game of Thrones is a sensational phenomenon, and after the finale episode of season 6, most of us ardent fans were experiencing serious problems coping with the absence of our favourite show. Now most people require something to distract them from the painful thoughts of the painful end of Game of Thrones, and those distractions come in the form of other television shows, movies, books or in a personal case, excess amount of food. But the mother of all distractions was the recent release of another sensational phenomenon, that of Pokemon Go, the new app that has brought all our Pokemon fantasies to life.
Pokemon Go introduced us to a world full of chaos and random whooping in the middle of the streets upon catching a Charizard, and apparently this has made a lot of people forget about Game of Thrones. All of those who had been busy mourning the loss of Game of Thrones are now seen running around with their phones trying to catch a Pokemon, and twitter went berserk seeing this new development.
Check out the reactions of fans after Pokemon Go was unleashed upon us:
Pokémon Go is the new Game of Thrones.

Alright, I'm downloading Pokémon Go out of pure fear I'll miss out on another social phenomenon, like I did Game of Thrones, Kanye and Uber.

Pokemon Go is a godsend for publishers looking to fill the content void previously taken by Game of Thrones fan theories stolen from Reddit.

I’ll never complain about Game of Thrones Twitter again if we can PLEASE get rid of Pokemon Go Twitter.
