I've heard people talking about this recently and I couldn't understand the concept. So I looked it up:

http://www.vox.com/2016/7/11/12129162/pokemon-go-android-ios-game

It's honestly the some of the dumbest sh*t I've ever seen in my entire life. I'm not exactly the smartest person, which it makes it so sad that are SO many people - a vast majority of people - are even stupider than me. I figured there had to be money involved, but nope, nada.

I can't believe how quickly this **** took off. I personally probably won't join in on this even though I did love Pokemon back in my youth

I remember playing pokemon blue on my gameboy color, I only caught like 30 but had a great roster and starting lineup, I was killing cats with that gameboy link but there is always that one **** who caught mewtwo.

People who didn't grow up with Pokemon just won't get it. Its fun and actually makes you want to go out an exercise. I've walked so much in the last 4-5 days!

Tried to get into it but can't. Used to love Pokemon when I was younger but this isn't my type of game. I enjoy being outside but not to stare at my phone and catch Pokemon, was shooting around at my local park the other night and it was packed with people on their phones. Sadly I was the only one on the basketball court as everyone else was catching Pokemon :nonono:

The concept of this game has some potential but it's like this endless "the more you play the stronger you will be" which makes it very addictive to some people.

There is hardly any pokemon where I live and shows error most of the time. I live in upstate ny in syracuse so if you're like me and live in a rural area I suggest you not install this game.

I have been seeing lot of people outside walking lately... but on their phones. At least they are getting their Vitamin D.

It's pretty interesting. People of all ages and sizes are outside. I'm not used to that.
