I have spent much of the last week enjoying the fervor and splendor of the Pokémon Go phenomenon. Spending countless hours hurling pokéballs wildly into the abyss, while being accosted by free roaming Pokémon who have invaded my world along with hordes of zombie like humans, whom to the untrained eye would think that they have mobility and sight issues as they wander aimlessly into traffic and cramp up businesses hoping to catch that elusive greyed out Pokémon that their app is saying is close by.

Pedestrian walkway jam ups aside, I have loved just about every minute of it. It’s incredibly difficult to not be endlessly seeking out Pokémon candies and stardust to power up and evolve my existing collection. I have also taken up walking more than usual to hatch my incubated Pokémon eggs, and seek out those forbidden Pokémon hiding in plain sight. With all the negative and positive attention being showered down upon the game that has already boosted Nintendo’s stock by a couple of points. It’s easy to ignore the fact that this game is most likely a gambit by a seasoned Console veteran to boost the sales of its upcoming efforts in the Handheld and Console world. As this almost certainly is going to be tied into the “NX” in some fashion.

After gaining entry into the intermediate echelon of Pokémon trainers (Level 5) you will be allowed to make a choice of being a member of one of three teams. Team Mystic, Team Valor, or Team Instinct. I chose Team Mystic lead by Blanche. Team Mystic is a cool, and intimidating team that’s focal point is evolution of Pokémon, and the Science related to it. A collection of Brainiac Pokémon enthusiasts who chose the Legendary Pokémon Articuno as their Mascot and Champion. The other teams may be a good choice for you as well but Team Mystic aligned more with my style. The above picture is a Game of Thrones reference that some clever blogger pieced together. Two things I am currently enjoying in one image.

All in all. I would say that this game is deserving of its top grossing spot on the Google Play and Apple App Store and I thoroughly recommend it to casual gamers and hardcore gamers alike. If I were to rate my experience so far I would give it a 5/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ rating.
