It’s officially taken over. John Mayer, Chrissy Teigen and even Wiz Khalifa — along with the other 15 million people who have downloaded the game — are addicted to the phenomenon that is Pokémon Go.

In case you’ve been living under a rock, Pokémon Go is a location-based gaming app that encourages players to go out into the real world — like, literally anywhere from your local Starbucks to Iraq — to catch Pokemon. Since its July 6 release, the app has led to users creating “Missed Connections” listings on Craigslist and even resulted in a 19-year-old woman discovering a dead body floating in a river in Wyoming.

While the highly addictive game has led to some dangers — on July 10, Missouri’s O’Fallon Police Department posted a warning on Facebook that thieves were targeting Pokéstops — even celebrities have joined in on creating an avatar and letting the games begin.

While waiting at the airport in Budapest on Tuesday, July 12, Tyga was spotted ignoring his girlfriend, Kylie Jenner, while surveying the land. Nick Jonas’ tour mate Demi Lovato has also gotten distracted by the game.

“Demi just seriously said out loud… 'There's no f—kin Pokemon here?!' #thisisoutofhand @ddlovato,” the “Touch” singer tweeted on Tuesday.

John Mayer, however, might be the most dedicated. The singer spent $99.99 for 14,500 PokeCoins on Sunday, July 10.
