Look, it happens to the best of us. You're sitting around and need something to keep your fingers busy, so you reach for your phone. Whether you decide to play Candy Crush, check Twitter, or, like the Norwegian Prime Minister, you decide to play Pokemon Go. Still, if you were listening to a debate in Parliament, then you probably would try to keep your mind on the task at hand.

Erna Solberg was caught playing the game during a debate on Tuesday in the Storting. It is no secret that the PM is a fan of the mobile game. During an official trip to Slovakia, she even told reporters that she was going to take some of the time walking around to hatch her 10km eggs.

This isn't the first time that a Norwegian politician has been caught Pokemon handed.

Trine Skei Grande, the leader of Norway's Liberal party, was also spotted playing the game back in June during a national security meeting.

So who was who caught the PM trying to becoming another PM - a Pokemon Master?

Grande herself.

Grande seemed pretty amused by the news, tweeting out : “She heard what I said, we ladies can do two things at the same time you know.”

According to Norway’s TV2, Solberg said: “I think that Trine will like that I opened the game while she was at the pulpit.”
