It's not just the kids who are obsessed with collecting all the Pokémon. Avid gamer and Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg was recently caught playing Pokémon Go when a debate was going on in the Parliament.

Solberg is outspoken about her love for the game having even gone on a hunt for the fictional creatures during her official trip to Slovakia. The 55-year-old conservative leader had used the time between two meetings to hit the town along with bodyguards, senior officials and a television crew, searching for Pokémon. She even told reporters she met during her visit that she wanted to hatch some of her 10km eggs.

Before she fell in love with the virtual world of Pokémon, Solberg was an enthusiastic Candy Crush player. However, Solberg is not alone in her love for games. On August 26, Norway's Liberal party leader Trine Skei Grande was seen playing Pokémon Go during a parliamentary hearing on foreign affairs and defence.

Grande was among the first to defend Solberg after the incident was brought to light. She tweeted, "She heard what I said, we ladies can do two things at the same time you know."
