This summer an exciting game came out, and it already has over 75 MILLION downloads! What is it? You probably know it. Pokemon Go! Pokemon go is a free-to-play location based game that was released in July 2016. In the game, players use their mobile device’s GPS capability to find, capture, battle, and train virtual creatures, called Pokemon, that show up on the screen as if they were in the same real location as the player. It’s a great way for people to get out of their house, explore places that they most likely wouldn’t have, and to meet new people. But is this game really worth the risk?
Pokemon go may be fun, but it can also put the players at risk. There was a man from Alabama walking around, trying to “catch ‘em all” but he ended up being robbed at gunpoint. Also, Firefighters came to the rescue to save a man in California who fell off of a 90-FOOT CLIFF while hunting for Pokemon. What I’m trying to say is, Pokemon Go can be a very fun game, as long as you stay safe and careful. Thank you for reading!
