The streets are alive with Pokemon trainers

It requires more than just pressing a button and selecting your Pokeball of choice, as you do in the handheld games.

To the delight of many Pokémon fans, Niantic, Inc. and The Pokémon Company on July 6, 2016 finally launched the eagerly awaited mobile game called Pokémon Go.

A modern take on the classic Pokemon video game, Pokemon Go makes use of augmented reality as players use GPS and a real-world map to find and capture Pokemon in their neighborhoods.

In an interview with GameSpot, one of Niantic's developers Archit Bhargava stated that one of his fantasies is to create a Game of Thrones version of the game, where you could join a House and enter the fantasy world of Westeros.

But the personal injury attorneys too are likely to have a good look in here with Pokemon Go and its fellow travellers. As augmented reality game-playing becomes more common, so too will the numbers out there in the real world searching for digital creatures or characters.

For those unfamiliar with the Pokemon brand, the game first made its appearance in 1998 in the U.S. along with the TV show that first aired in September of that same year. Perhaps that's because it's taking ages to load once connected (rubbish) or this is a featureless bit of country road where it's decided it's too boring to bother placing any Pokemon (also rubbish).

"Catch Pokemon in the comfort of our Pokestop cafe with free wi-fi!" The game has over two million downloads on iOS devices and is generating roughly $1.6 million in revenue daily from in-app purchases. (Ingress is basically a strategy game about drawing lines between portals, which gets a lot harder and less fun if there are too many portals too close together.) It also now has more active players than Ingress. When it works, Pokemon GO feels like a natural evolution for the series, very much a product of the times without making the mainline series obsolete. Sometimes, it's because there was nothing taggable for miles- just uniform suburban housing.

In the original Pokemon games, breeding was an awesome puzzle for people who wanted to min-max Pokemon by giving them special moves. Popular Science has also reported that privacy and security concerns have been raised following a request from the game to allow full access to players' Google accounts.

Pokemon Go: How does weather affect which characters you can collect?
It's a World of Warcraft, a Minecraft, a Candy Crush Saga - although time will tell if it can be as long-lived. I'd even wager that a lot of Pokémon Masters would pay to unlock a smartwatch app as an in-app purchase.

I saw on Twitter this weekend that someone had said that Michelle Obama has been trying for eight years to combat childhood obesity and Nintendo did it in 24 hours.

If your egg vanishes, it might have hatched, but you didn't get the notification because of server issues or app crashes.

All in all, I think the game is a great thing as long as it sticks around.

It's a franchise launched by Nintendo in the 1990s. Why should some of those people be forced to play in towns where there's zero gyms or Pokestops?
