Evan Scribner claims he’s now single after his girlfriend discovered he was “cheating” on her — thanks to the geolocation feature in the addicting scavenger hunt-style cellphone game.
Scribner told us his big mistake was playing the game after canoodling with an ex-girlfriend in Bushwick.
The mobile game leads players to virtual creatures located in the real-world, using a phone’s mapping software to record where each Pokemon is captured.
And that means anyone snooping around a player’s phone would be able to see his or her whereabouts at a given time.
“She saw that I had caught a Pokémon while at my ex’s house,” Scribner said.
And when the Sunnyside, Queens resident didn’t have a good excuse as to why he was wandering around his ex’s Brooklyn neighborhood, his gal pal said see you later Feraligatr.
“She found out last night at my house and hasn’t contacted me since then,” Scribner said.
Unlike Scribner, some players claim the game has given them lady luck.

Since last Wednesday, Nintendo has already added $7.5 billion to its market value and increased its stock shares by 25 percent.
