A lot of people that aren’t Pokemon fans seem really confused right now, some of them even frustrated, as to why their Facebook feed or their Instagram is currently nothing but Pokemon GO screenshots. Understand that, silly as you may personally find it, Pokemon was one of the biggest, most influential things to ever hit pop culture and even after over 20 years, it is nowhere close to running out of steam. Pokemon is a juggernaut, and more than just a game or a cartoon to many of us. Almost every new Pokemon game brings with it the massive media blast you’re witnessing at this moment, but the difference with Pokemon GO is that it is a mobile phone game that is free to download. This means that even people that don’t have up to date Nintendo hardware, and even people who have never actually played a Pokemon game can just go download it off of their app store right now, and join in the fun. I fall into the category of Pokemon fans who were reared in the golden age of the 90’s, who has played every Pokemon game ever released on launch day, and who has 2 monsters from this massive franchise permanently etched into my leg. I was as hyped up as everyone else about the potential of Pokemon GO. The issue is that, just like that softball team that all the kids’ parents signed them up for against their will in 2nd grade, potential doesn’t really matter if you don’t put forth the effort.
Pokemon GO is what happens when Geocaching and Pikachu get real cozy after a romantic dinner. Using the GPS technology built into your phone and VR implementation using your camera, you can at long last travel across the land, searching far and wide (OK, it’s out of my system now). Much like any other Pokemon game, the goal is to catch all of the Pokemon and fill out your Pokedex while also training to compete in gym battles, proving yourself not only capable of capturing, but controlling these creatures. Unlike any other Pokemon game, you really have no motivation to do so other than bragging rights. Your phone will display a rudimentary map with a 3D character sprite on it that moves, as accurately as is possible with current GPS technology, as you move. Depending on your location, different Pokemon will be available to you. When you are close enough to a Pokemon’s coordinates, you can tap it to initiate a battle. Unlike a regular Pokemon game, in the battle, you will only throw Pokeballs attempting the capture the Pokemon (battling is only done in gyms and is simplified). While you can disable the VR functions, leaving them on will project the 3D image of the Pokemon you are facing onto the environment in front of you. The visuals are only so good, what with this being a mobile game and all, but you can get some pretty hilarious results out of this [...]
