The emergence of Pokemon Go has brought the anime franchise booming back on to the front lines of the Internet, but for those tired of hearing about animated monsters, the PokeGone browser extension eliminates any mention of the beasts from Chrome.

Of course, PokeGone doesn't literally remove all mentions of Pokemon from the web -- rather, it reads whichever website its user is on for mentions of the cartoon series and blanks those words out from that page.

Code for the PokeGone browser extension is based off of an earlier, similar Chrome service that removed all mentions of Donald Trump from the Internet. While Pokemon Go is obviously less political, it is potentially even more viral, and those with a Pokemon headache can use PokeGone to take a break for a while.
