Pokémon was one of the biggest trends in the late '90s, but it is making a big comeback, thanks to mobile gaming!
Pokémon Go, a mobile game that is free to download on Android and iOS, is giving hardcore fans a chance to live out their fantasies of catching Pokémon in real life. The game uses your phone’s GPS and clock to have Pokémons appear in your surroundings so you can “catch" them.
The game, which started generating buzz last week, even has some celebrities addicted, including Chrissy Teigen, John Mayer, Trevor Noah, and Valerie Bertinelli.
Chrissy wrote on Twitter, "I'm over Pokemon. Please let's pretend I never played and I never bought hundreds of pounds of incense.”
