Pokemon Go – 2 Weeks in

2 weeks in and already this craze has consumed my life. When I first heard about Pokemon Go, I was a bit reserved and unsure what to expect from it. I was always going to download it to see what they hype was about and I am so glad I did. This is incredible, there aren’t many games that have you constantly looking at your phone (at least in my case anyways), but this does. I was a massive fan of the old series and I still have Pokemon Red and Yellow with my old GameBoy Colour, but Pokemon Go certainly goes a step further in terms of putting you in the feet of a Pokemon trainer. You ARE a Pokemon Trainer, you are walking around in your everyday life as you always would, only now with Pokemon Go’s augmented reality, there ARE┬áPokemon there too! Your phone is now your Pokedex, it is a masterstroke by the app makers, working with Google and GPS to show you where the next PokeStop is. OH and GYMS, Pokemon Gym’s are dotted all around towns and cities, and we can battle each other and defend them with the Pokemon we capture and train. Which is so awesome!!! I always keep trying to get a shopping centre and get my Team #TeamMystic to own it.
