Stuff We Like #88 - Pokemon Go
Yes, I went there! Someone had to and I figured it was a good thing for the Aussie to do.
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.
I know I'm not the only one out there playing this game, hell, I'm not the only Mischiefer playing it, *Coughs* Freddy *Coughs* Sorry, I had something in my throat there for a second. Anyway. Love it or hate it, I do like what the game is doing by encouraging people to get out there and exercise, just please, look up from your phones every once in a while and take in the scenery. ;) Till next time, catch 'em all!
