The hilarious exchange led to various reactions from the Pokemon Go community on Reddit, ranging from suggestions like changing the phone’s passcode to some genius-level advice about what to do with the Mareep from here.

A bunch of players were quick to point out that the Mareep Community Day Classic event is coming up on November 25. The Community Day represents a prime opportunity for players around the world to catch shiny Mareeps, as they’ll have boosted odds of spawning throughout the event.

For this player, at least according to the community, they’ve been given the perfect chance to impress their wife by generously handing over the shiny Mareep, knowing that they can simply catch another one later in November.

“Give it to her, and make her happy, knowing that they’ll be easy to find during community day classic in a couple of weeks,” one player suggested.

And that certainly seems like a win-win situation for this trainer, who’ll have a chance to catch many more shiny Mareeps in just a few weeks.
