15 Crazy Things People Have Done With 'Pokémon Go'

The new game is changing everything, like funerals and injuries and the birth of your first child! Hey, congrats, by the way!

TOPSHOT - Gamers play with the Pokemon Go application on their mobile phone, at the Grote Markt in Haarlem, on July 13, 2016.

Pokémon GO is slowly taking over humankind as we know it. People are crashing their cars, ending their loving relationships, infiltrating cemeteries, finding dead bodies and otherwise going apeshit. I'm not joking.

The game first surpassed the number of users on Snapchat and Tinder, then became the biggest mobile game in U.S. history. It's even seeing as much engagement as Facebook. It's even rumored that if you spend too much time playing Pokémon GO, you'll actually dissipate into the ether of the atmosphere and reappear on Poké-Planet, which is a planet with Pokémon on it that really exists. (Don't worry, amateurs, you'll get there.)

Now that you got the primer, let's dig into all the strange occurrences that have been tied to Pokémon GO.
