By now, if you're a living, breathing human with internet access, you're probably well aware that the Pokémon Go craze has officially swept the nation — you can't swing a stick without hitting about a million aspiring Pokémon trainers chasing small cartoon characters that live inside their smartphones. But if you're totally sick of seeing your social media feeds fill up with posts about Zubats flapping around peoples' bedrooms and theories about how to find Legendaries — there's a way to silence the endless Poké-noise.

"Pokémon No!" is a Chrome browser extension available for download here, that will helpfully remove all mentions of the game from your internet experience.

The creator posted a description along with the download, and it's clear that the person who made this blocker is not a Pokémon fan:

Remove all mentions of this annoying trend from your browser! Tired of seeing this children's game being discussed in the news, on Twitter and on your Facebook feed? Well now you never have to see it again! Pokémon NO will remove any mention of Pokémon and their new app from any website you visit! Enjoy seeing real news events and important things on your browser again. 

Or, if you don't feel like going through the trouble of downloading a blocker, you can always just wait out this fad. Just remember, this too shall pass.
