Just when you thought that the Pokemon Go craze has hit its peak ... think again.

Apparently the obsession is already being passed on to generations that are just entering this world.

Some parents are actually naming their newborns after the franchise's creatures and characters, according to the website

The site tracks trends by asking those who register what they named, or plan to name, their baby.

For girls, the popular Pokemon names are Roselia, Evee, and Onyx. For boys, Ash — who is the Pokemon trainer is gaining popularity — as well as Shay.

The site says it has found that 50 percent of the moms who frequent their site claim they are into the game — which means there could be plenty more baby Pikachus entering this world.

So good luck on that first day of school, Jigglypuff and Squirtle!
