You'd have thought Pokémon Go had pretty much run its course news-wise. Alas, you were wrong.

A young woman recently complained to the police she had been sexually assaulted by a Pokémon.

The woman, who remains anonymous, says she was attack by a huge Pokémon in her Moscow apartment in Russia.

She had been playing the popular app before going to sleep. She then awoke to find the creature on top of her.

It was only when she sprung from the bed that the Pokémon vanished.

When she told her husband he approached police officers to say he didn't buy the story and advised his wife to seek therapy.

Bloknot, a Russian news site, reported that the police did not believe the woman either. She later sought that help and will be speaking to a psychiatrist.

One of the woman's friends, Ivan Makarov, said: "She says there are too many Pokémon at her place and even the dog can sense them. She says the dog barks whenever she plays Pokémon Go."
