Pokémon GO: 11 Insane Player Stories You Won't Believe Actually Happened
10. Man Catches A Pidgey While His Wife Is Giving Birth
Giving birth to a child is one of the most profound times in anybody's life. It's almost as if in the same moment a new life is coming into the world, the parents can feel their old lives disintegrating before their eyes as they prepare for parenthood... in a good way, of course.

As it turns out, Pidgeys are quite fond of them, and Theriot took the opportunity to catch it while his wife was sweating and working on her deep breathing.
When Theriot told his wife about his successful catch of the Pidgey, she apparently responded with an eye-roll (presumably while thinking in exasperation, "So this is the man who'll father my children for the rest of his life? Great...")
