Pokemon Go has been one of the most famous and favourite game in the year 2016 for the kids of 90’s but many people have given up the game by now, but we applaud Erna Solberg for keeping the dream alive, even if it could have been timed better.
Maybe there was a dratini nest in Norway or on her recent sighting screen, we can’t really blame her.
The politician has been open about her love for the game, previously telling reporters she wanted to hatch some of her 10km eggs in downtime on a trip to Slovakia.
Solberg’s love of Pokemon Go isn’t exactly a state secret.
Back in August, Solberg even took some time off from a state visit to Slovakia to hunt for Pokemon on the streets of Bratislava, according to TheLocal.No.
Her decision to play Pokemon Go during a debate might seem rude, but it seems the game’s popularity crosses some Norwegian political lines.
Solberg is the leader of Norway’s Conservative Party, and the person speaking during her Pokemon Go session was none other than Trine Skei Grande, the leader of Norway’s Liberal Party. Grande was caught on camera playing Pokemon Go herself during an August meeting of the Norwegian Parliament’s Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs and Defense.
Grande had just finished asking a question when her attention switched to the app.
When reporters for VG, a Norwegian news website, asked Grande to comment on her multitasking, she explained that some people “have heads that listen better when doing something brain dead.”
Pikachu was unavailable for comment.
News photographers captured Solberg playing Pokemon Go on Tuesday while listening to a heated debate at the Storting, Norway’s parliament. Grande tweeted: ‘She heard what I said, we ladies can do two things at the same time you know.’
