Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past fortnight, then you’ve probably heard of Pokémon Go. The augmented reality game by Nintendo and Niantic has got the whole world talking and playing Pokémon once again. That includes both members of the wiwibloggs team, as well as many of the Eurovision acts themselves. Let’s check out what some of the ESC acts have been saying and doing in this Pokémon world.

We’re liking Francesca’s different take on how to get over the all-too-regular server downtime.
Jedward (Ireland 2011/12)
Jedward have been sharing their love of Nintendo products for years. They once signed to help advertise Nintendo’s products, which resulted in this wonderful ad campaign.
Frans (Sweden 2016)
Showing true dedication, Frans spent some of his recent holiday Pokémon-hunting. Got to catch that Poliwag!
Eric Saade (Sweden 2011)
People be playing Pokemon on their vacation nowadays! ?
— Eric Saade (@ericsaademusic) July 18, 2016
Oh. Apparently Eric doesn’t approve. We get the feeling that Frans isn’t sorry.
Jala (Bosnia 2016)
But of course, we all know who the real Pokémon master of the Eurovision world is:
Ie-ie-o, I choose you!
Have you been playing Pokémon Go too? Let us know in the comments section if you’re enjoying the game. Make sure to let us know which team you’re as well. Now, if you don’t mind, we’re off to go try and catch us some more Magikarp. Got to get that candy for Gyarados, y’all!
