Not to make a gross understatement, but Pokemon GO is a mega viral phenomenon — so much so, Nintendo’s market value has jumped $7.5 billion since the launch of the game and a total of $9 billion dollars since last Wednesday. That was five days ago. In the few short days that Pokemon GO has overtaken our existence (RIP, my former life), the Internet has been appropriately and hilariously ablaze with memes.
