Ever since the release,Pokemon Go has been a phenomenon. Everywhere you go, you see people looking at there phone trying to capture Pokemon and wanting to be the very best like no one ever was( That’s right, I got this part from the Pokemon theme). I have been around the internet and I have not noticed a single review on the game. I decided to be the first one to do a review on this for anyone who wants to know about it. Let’s do this:
What is Pokemon Go
Pokemon Go is a game based on the famous anime and game of the same name. The anime and game is about finding, capturing, and training Pokemon in order to battle against other Pokemon and trainers. Basically its like cock fights but in a cute and kid friendly way. Anyway, the purpose of the game is to motivate players to go outside and look for Pokemon and capture them. The game brings the concept of the anime and game to real life. Not only do you find and capture Pokemon, you get to train them in order to evolve and become stronger. Anywhere you go, you get to go to gym in which you can battle players and take over the gym and claim it as your own. Ever since the game was released, alot more people are at the parks then ever before and everyone is helping each other find the desired Pokemon they want. The game brings people together making it possible to have new friends and meet possible dates for both men and women.The game has become so popular that the University of Idaho will add it as a curriculum for their university.
How do you play it
I have explained the basics of the game and its really simple but now I will explain the little details of it. The Pokemon shows up based on where you are located since the game needs access to GPS to know your exact location, they show up the most when you are near a pokestop with a lure module activated. A lure module is whats used in the game to bring more Pokemon to you then to just go and find them. Every time you capture a Pokemon , you gain experience and the more experience you have the more you level up. Every time you level up, you will gain more pokeballs and other items and the higher the level, the higher the chance of a rare Pokemon to appear which will be harder to catch. My advice to you is to have alot of pokeballs and resupply on pokestops when you can. Now, each Pokemon has a CP score which stands for combat points and of course you guess right, the more CP, the stronger the Pokemon. To make them stronger or evolve, you must have enough candy and the only way to do that is to capture more Pokemon and transfer Pokemon to get extra candy if you have alot of the same type. That’s all about the game and how you play it, real simple right? I think so too.
I really love the game. Ever since I have started playing it, it has open up a new world for me. When I first started playing it, it was fun capturing pokemon when am out doing errands or walking my dog but what I like most about it is the fact that it gets you to leave the house. In this day and age, most kids and teens are at home either in their computer all day playing online games and masturbating to porn or on their phone. Thanks to this game, there are more people in parks then ever before. I find this a good thing cause when you in the computer or phone at home all day, you tend to not only become socially awkward but also lonely. One time, I was with some friends out finding Pokemon in one spot, there were so many people, adults and teens alike playing Pokemon go. They were all talking to each other, having fun, and even congratulating each other for capturing a pokemon. We had so much fun and so did everyone else. In my personal view, I love this game cause of the fact that it brings people together but in a non competitive way. My experience in this game was not only fun and brought my childhood memories of pokemon back to life but I had also met people playing it too.
Now, its time to give you guys the pros and cons of this game:
- Its alot of fun to play (This is obvious)
- Motivation to go outside
- Meet new people and talk about pokemon
- Meet hot nerdy girls that are into pokemon ( Don’t just capture pokemon,capture some hot girls too but not in a literal sense)
- Make new friends
- Take over gyms and claim them. ( THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE!!!!!, Highlander reference)
- A good idea for a date ( Real simple and cheap date idea)
- Get some sun (Get more vitamin D which equals increase testosterone)
- You can get distracted easily ( DO NOT PLAY WHILE DRIVING. Pay attention to your surroundings. Be responsible)
- You can get robbed ( My advice to you: Do not go to pokestops alone at night especially if the only thing you see around you is one car and a bunch of people inside. Always go in groups when you hunt at night. Be careful when you play in the day cause anyone can steal you phone since you are distracted in that moment)
- Can be addicting ( Make sure you balance yourself between playing the game and doing your daily errands)
- Can trespass to restricted area ( Do not enter Private property otherwise you will be mistaken for a robber. Be careful where you play the game)
The game is awesome and a positive benefit to all. As of this moment, the company who made the game announced that they will release the second generation pokemon and trading mechanism that was known of over the years of the games soon but their top priority is the servers since there are so many people playing it. Once the servers are finally fixed, I will be looking forward to my journey of capturing Luiga. I hope you guys enjoyed this review. Leave a comment below of what you guys think of the game and what rare pokemon have you captured so far. Be safe hunting out there and make sure you play this song:
