Oslo: Even as the Pokemon Go craze seems to have reduced around the world, the Norwegian Prime Minister was recently spotted playing the game during a debate session of the parliament.

According to a report in the Daily Mail, Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg was seen playing the online game while she had to participate in a live debate.

 

This is not the first time Solberg was trying to catch them all. Earlier, during an official trip to Solvakia, she had told her officials that she is trying to hatch an egg while she was playing the game.

Earlier, Solberg's photograph had also appeared in a Norwegian newspaper for the same reason. However, she reacted with grace saying that 'women can do two things at a time'.

The incident comes after another Norwegian politician was spotted playing the game during a foreign and military affairs meeting. She was accused of caring more about the game rather than the country's security. However, she defended herself by saying that she 'listens better when she is doing brain dead activities.'

Pokemon Go is a free-to play mobile game available for both iOS and Android smartphone. The game makes use of the smartphone GPS, uses your neighbourhood map, or basically anywhere you would go.

The game uses your phone’s camera to make a Pokemon appear on your phone’s screen, via a random mapped location. You then need to physically go to that area on the map and ‘catch’ them.
