Augmented reality is starting to take over real reality in the form of Pikachu and the rest of the Pokemon characters.
The wildly popular video game series, normally the realm of children, has taken over the lives of adults thanks to "Pokemon Go."
And if you think that the game has taken over your friends' and even your life since its release last week, you may be right.
According to web watchers, "Pokemon Go" is bigger than Tinder, Business Insider reported.
By July 7, it was installed on more US Android-based phones than the dating app, Similar Web found.
It's also giving Twitter a run for its money when it comes to engagement.
Similar Web said that the number of Daily Active Users is nearly as high as Twitter and could overtake the social media platform.
The game is only available officially in the US, Australia and New Zealand for now, but it is available through back channels using an apk, or Android application package used to bypass the company's app store.
