Pokemon Go seems to be the craze that is not only sweeping the nation these days but the world. Gotta catch 'em all!
Now, I'll admit to being a complete Pokemon novice. I didn't grow up watching it, or playing with the cards or any of the other pokemon associated items. The extent of my knowledge before PG came out was that Pikahcu was a little yellow Pokemon dude and that was about it. I had no idea how you went about catching these things, what Pokeballs were for or how battles were fought and won (I'm still a little iffy on the last one).
But I decided not to let that stop me. The main reason I decided to download the game was I thought it would be a good excuse to get out of the house with my daughter and go for a walk around the city. See what we could find on out way, and it's been fun. I haven't bothered yet about doing anything in the gyms. I don't know if I ever will, even though there's one right opposite my building. I'm just enjoying catching the little cridders so far.
