While it may be tempting to see if you can find a Rattata grooving next to Rihanna at one of her shows, she requests you refrain. The artist announced her anti-Pokémon stance at a recent stop on her Anti World Tour. Rihanna’s policy seemingly encompasses various forms of cellphone usage, but she specifically takes aim at Pokémon hunters. “I don’t want to see you texting your boyfriends or your girlfriends,” she said. “I don’t want to see you catching any Pokémons up in this bitch.”

And if risking the ire of Ri isn’t enough of a threat, there is always the chance you could be publicly shamed by another audience member, which is what happened at a recent Beyoncé performance in France. This lady had the audacity to survey the Pokémon offerings while standing directly in front of Bey, and one of her fellow concert-goers was not pleased.
