You’ve probably already heard about the latest smartphone app craze: Pokémon GO. In Pokémon GO, players use their smartphones to capture legendary Pokémon via a geo-location based app.
Released on July 6th, 2016, Pokémon GO has created quite the stir.
What’s The Big Deal About Pokémon GO?
That’s the question everyone is asking. Why is this new Pokémon game so popular?
I have a few theories.
Pokémon GO plays on the nostalgia of those who grew up in the 90’s. Those who watched Pokémon growing up, want to try this new take on their favorite childhood cartoon.
Pokémon GO brings people together. The last couple of days have been crazy. Anywhere Pam and I walked, we ran into Pokémon GO players. Most weren’t alone. Pokémon GO players travel in packs and play together.
