The happiest day of his life – Man catches Pidgey in Pokemon Go while wife gives birth

This is likely to be one of the more unusual Pokemon Go captures that you hear about; a man caught Pidgey, while his wife was waiting to give birth in front of him.

Jonathan Theriot posted the photograph of the proud moment on Imgur with the caption, "When your wife is about to have a baby and a Pokemon shows up and you have to low-key catch it..."

He told Buzzfeed, “As soon as it popped up, I was like, oh my gosh, there’s a Pidgey sitting on your bed! So, I screenshotted it, then caught it and showed it to her.”

Pokemon Go has taken the world by storm, though naturally the reaction to the photo has been somewhat divisive. All that matters though is what his wife thought and she seemed good natured about it. “She just kind of laughed at it,” he said. “It was primarily an eye-roll once she realized what I was doing,” he said.

If Pokemon Go has eluded you, it is an augmented reality mobile game in which you can capture Pokemon in the real world. You can capture them, train them up and then put them into battle. It has prompted safety messages telling people to make sure they look up from their phone, while a police station in Australia has told players that they don't actually need to enter the station to capture a Pokemon.
