If you thought your childish days were over, you were wrong!
Pokémon is back and by looking at its popularity, it’s not going away anytime soon. Pokémon GO dropped on Android and iOS a little over a week ago, and with a whopping 7.5M US downloads, the game might just be worth a try.
We can’t lie, the game seems pretty cool but we’re still shocked that grown folks are losing their minds to this. Pokémon Go uses your device’s GPS to detect your location, and your location determines which Pokemon are accessible to you. The overall goal is to move around to catch all the Pokémon. Sounds simple enough, right?
Now the tricky part is, how do you not allow this game to take over your life?
