Norway's Prime Minister spied hunting Pokemon during political debate

Political debates and catching Pokemon have two things in common – they are tiring! However, the latter is significantly more fun than the former, which partly explains why Mrs. Erna Soldberg, prime minister of Norway, took some time off to partake in some Pokemon hunting instead of listening in closely to the stuff discussed during the debate, which was conducted during an official trip in Slovakia.

Soldberg felt no excess guilt or shame for her action, enthusiastically telling Norwegian reporters that she was keen to hatch some of her 10km eggs. Prior to Sondberg, Trine Skei Grande, head of Norway's Liberal Party, was spotted hunting Pokemon during a national security meeting in August. In response to the Sondberg news, she jokingly tweeted that ladies can discuss politics and hunt Pokemon at the same time.

As you can see, it's not only you indulging in some sweet Pokemon training and hatching during a boring meeting. Norwegian political leaders are in, too.
