It's been only a few days since the launch of Pokémon GO, an augmented reality mobile game where you play a trainer tasked to catch all Pokémon scattered throughout the map, and it has undeniably taken the country by storm. Both gaming newbies and those who have already been playing past Pokémon titles on handheld devices have all been trying "to be the very best," and the trend has sparked a lot of funny memes and hugot online. Here are a few of our favorites:

1. When you welcomed Pokémon GO with a "PAK, GANERN!"
