There’s been a lot of unexpected effects of Pokémon Go. Cops are mistaking Pokémon meetups for drug deals. The Westboro Baptist Church is caught up in a battle for a gym. But probably most predictable is that people are getting hot for Charizard.

Since the release of the game, porn site xHamster has seen an uptick in searches related to Pokémon. According to the company, the site’s typical top searches include “MILF,” “Teen,” and “Interracial.” But those categories have been replaced with the likes of “Pokemon,” “Pikachu,” “Hentai,” and “Anime.” Over the last weekend, anime has been the most accessed genre of film, xHamster said.

An xHamster spokesperson told the Daily Dot in an email that most of the searches are coming from the United States, Japan, Germany, France, Canada, and the United Kingdom. Since Friday, “Anime” has gotten 202,765 searches, “Hentai” scored 803,228, and Pokémon came in at 147,248. 

If you’re thinking to yourself, “wait, there’s Pokémon porn?” well, we’re here to tell you there most definitely is. It’s Rule 34. There was even a live action one from Wood Rocket called Strokémon from last June. 

Looks like Pokémon Go is getting people to do a lot more moving than wandering around their local neighborhoods.
