The user, who goes by the name Pinknose, discovered that the church's location was being used as a gym, which is a place to hone your strengths within the app. So Pinknose claimed the space and renamed it LoveIsLove.
Well, those lovable haters at Westboro didn't waste any time getting back.
The church decided to fight back using a pink, and some might even say gay-looking, character within the Pokémon world: Jigglypuff.
Steven Drain, an elder at the church, told USA Today:
This little church, as despised and vilified as we are, the location of this church will be memorialized throughout eternity... We're willing by God's grace to say that homosexuality is wrong, and that's what we've been known for, even though we preach the whole counsel of God.
No word yet as to whether Westboro has reclaimed the space.
In the meantime, let's just relish in all that Pokémon shade being thrown around.
