In case you haven’t noticed or you’ve been completely cut off from the Internet, Pokemon Go
is all the rage right now. Mobile phone technology
has made another comeback and is here to stay. For those of us who’ve arrived late to the party, Pokemon Go is a free-to-play located-based game that uses augmented realities for its players to “catch” Pokemon characters. It was developed by Niantic
devices and it seems to be taking over the streets.
