Pokémon Go is a free smartphone game that has taken the world by storm since it was released earlier this month. The game allows players (called trainers) to capture virtual creatures (Pokémon) found in the real world. The game uses GPS signal to place you on a playing field built on a special Google map, and your phone’s camera to create an augmented reality (AR) where Pokémon appear and can be captured. The game has become popular with all age groups, and it being praised for getting players up and out of the house.
