After being released only 2 weeks ago, Pokemon Go has become one of the most used smart apps of all time. People are willing to pay thousands of pounds for phones with rare Pokemon, and one man in New Zealand has quit his job to play full time! If you haven't yet played it and are wondering what all the fuss is about, read on and find out why the world has gone crazy for Pokemon.
Pokemon Go can be compared to a giant scavenger hunt. Players walk around with their smartphone trying to locate wild Pokemon, which they can catch and collect. Players also have the option to make Pokemon appear around them through their camera. The game currently features 150 types, some which can be found anywhere and others that are extremely rare. One rare Pokemon almost caused a stampede in central park.
The other feature in the game is battling the Pokemon that you catch with other players. Rare Pokemon are stronger which is what makes them so desirable. These Pokemon can be fought in Gyms which appear in public places, and can be taken over if your Pokemon is strong enough.
If you want to join the rapidly increasing players and start catching Pokemon, here are some tips on increasing your chances of grabbing one of the better ones.
Whether Pokemon Go will be a short lived craze or a long lasting phenomenon is uncertain, but right now it is the game everyone's playing with people becoming more active and working together to catch them all.
