Do you enjoy going for walks? Do you enjoy video games? And did you know there is a video game that gets you outside and active? Well, that game would be Pokémon Go!
Pokémon Go is an augmented reality game that lets you capture Pokémon from one of Nintendo’s most popular franchises. Back in 1996, Nintendo released Pokémon Red and Blue for the Gameboy handheld system, selling 10.23 million copies in Japan and then another 9.85 million in the United States, becoming one of the most popular RPGs of all time. In the game of Pokémon, humans, known as Pokémon Trainers, catch and train Pokémon to battle other Pokémon for sport. The goal of the game is to capture all of the Pokémon in the game and defeat all 8 Gym leaders located In the Kanto region, but you’re not done yet. Then you must go up against the Elite 4, the most powerful trainers in the game, to become the Pokémon Master.
Fast forward to 2016 for the release of Pokémon Go. Not much has changed. Your goal is to catch them all, take over gym leaders, and become the very best Pokémon trainer you can be. The main difference now is that in this game you can travel all over the world to catch as many Pokémon as you can! One of the top downloaded and grossing games in 2020, Pokémon Go is not slowing down anytime soon. This game is great to play with friends who also enjoy the Pokémon franchise or just anyone who wants to go outside and explore. Download Pokémon Go on the Play Store or the App Store to get started on becoming the next Pokémon Master!
