According to the reports, the ‘victimised’ woman told the police that a huge Pokemon character pinned her on her bed while she was sleeping, lay on her top, and raped her. Her statement made to the police reads that the woman has been continuously playing the game till she went to sleep. She woke up in the morning by a strange feeling on her body only to discover that a massive character from the virtual reality game Pokemon is sexually assaulting her.

Scared out of her wits, she said that as she jumped out of her bed to escape the ‘rapist goblin’, it just vanished in thin air. What beats the common sense is that all this while the game was still playing on her cell phone. Not just that, the game also detected the presence of her tormentor in the bedroom.

Interestingly, her husband has refused to believe her story and told the police that he would be taking her to a psychiatrist. But her friends say that there were too many Pokemon characters in her home and her dog could also sense their presence. "The dog barks whenever she plays Pokemon Go," her friend was quoted as saying.

For the uninitiated, Pokemon Go is a virtual reality game which is played by using the phone’s camera to make a Pokemon appear on the phone display by a random mapped location. The player then has to go to that area on the map and catch the gnomes.
