The Prodigy's Blog "Pokémon Go"

July 7, 2016

For those of you who don’t know, there is a new Pokémon game for your phone that lets you catch Pokémon…everywhere. That’s right, in your house, on the bus, and at your workplace, literally everywhere. I haven’t played Pokémon sense I was a kid, at least 10 years now, but when I got to work today everyone was holding their phone up with glee of their face yelling at me to get out of the way so they could catch more of these crazy things. Workplace productivity is about to take a huge hit. Personally I don’t get the big appeal; I mean I’ve caught enough Zubat’s in my lifetime to never want to see the damn thing ever again.

 

BJ once bought me a Gameboy and I owned all the classics including Pokémon red, blue and yellow! I probably put hundreds of hours into those games and I remember my dad not understanding how I could be so obsessed with one game but it was like having a bunch of awesome pets that fought battles for you. How could you not want to collect as many of them as you can? Not to mention the fact that it was portable so you could bring it anywhere you went. I can see how putting a new Pokémon game on people’s phones would create this kind of pandemonium among people. I mean, you can’t let your friends collect more Pokémon than you, you’re the master here.

 

Are you trying to catch them all? What’s the coolest Pokémon you’ve caught so far?
