Swiftly becoming available in countries around the world and immensely popular in each one, Pokemon Go has become a juggernaut of a game. So what is it?
Well, Pokemon Go is a game that uses Google Earth, your phone's GPS system, and it's camera to place tiny fictional monsters called 'Pokemon' all over the globe for excited players to hunt, lure, or simply find. The Pokemon creatures appear on your screen in the backgrounds of the real areas provided through the view of your phone's camera, ready to be captured.
The game uses existing places, such as churches, museums, local landmarks, and in some cases, even cemetaries as hiding places for the little critters. The phone even vibrates when you are near one of the hidden Pokemon so that you know to look around. Players are limited in how many Pokemon they can capture and must go to 'Pokestops' to remedy this. Pokestops have eggs and 'Poke balls' which will allow players to catch even more Pokemon to add to their growing collections. So what do you do after you get bored finding them?
