Investigating further, it has been found that the background of the image is taken from the season 14 episode of The Simpsons called “How I Spent my Summer Vacation?” The background of the picture is just a screen-grab from the moment when Homer picks up the pills from the floor when they are on the “Rock and Roll Summer Camp”. Sounds fishy, right? Well, lets dig deeper.
Someone just captured an image from the episode when Homer points at an imaginary Jesus. After that, the individual who did this just Photoshopped a second hand holding a phone and playing Pokémon Go.
So there you have it, The Simpsons did not predict Pokémon Go. It was just someone good with Photoshop. Next time you see internet hoaxes like this, be sure to take it with a pinch of salt.
