If you haven’t heard of Pokémon GO you’re probably living under a rock and there’s probably a rare Pokémon next to you. You might have noticed more people roaming the streets lately and that’s because they’re trying to catch Pokémon on their smartphones. The game offers up one simple request “Gotta catch ’em all” and everyone is taking it as a serious challenge. Pokémon GO was released on July 6th and has been taking over people’s lives and the internet at an astounding rate since. The app has already surpassed Tinder in downloads and is coming for Twitter in the number of daily users.
