What exactly is Pokémon Go?
The Nintendo-owned Pokémon Go is a free-to-use mobile application which uses your phone’s GPS to help you catch virtual Pokémons. Based on augmented reality and GPS, it can detect where you are and make Pokémons appear in your surroundings. The game requires you take on the role of a trainer and walk around scouting for Pokémons and collect as many as possible. Based on the cartoon Pokémon, which aired in the late 1990s, this game brings back memories for every kid who was hit by the Pokemania.
While the game is officially available for Android and iOS users in the USA, UK, Australia and New Zealand, it has not yet released officially in India. However, worry not, you can still play the game. If you are an iOS user, you can change your country to Australia or the United States in settings and download the app, whereas on Android, you can download the APK files and start catching Pokémons.
The Pokémon Go fever is just going to keep getting bigger as the game is set to be officially launched in many more countries. Here are a few hilarious pictures and memes that aptly capture this rage!
