Why people are going crazy over Pokèmon Go?

Facebook and Twitter. Pokemon Go. This app is as famous as a scientific breakthrough.

So, what is it all about?

Well, it is a new game developed by Niantic and it uses augmented reality. Sounds futuristic doesn’t it. It starts out on a map and yup a real map in which you have to move and catch pokemons that means getting out of your house. When you spot a pokemon you click on it and you camera app open on which it visualises the pokemon. Like this,pokemon-go-nick_statt-screenshots-1.0

You then throw the poke ball and the creature and capture it. You can later battle with this pokemon in the gym. Also you will probably run out of those balls so you can go to a poke stop and collect such resources. Almost every mandir and metro station (registered on google) is a poke gym or a poke stop. Even though the game is available only in few countries like US, Japan and Australia, people are going crazy over it in India as well. And if you are thinking that you are too old and mature for this game. You are wrong!

Now, for the iOS devices… Well it’s not that easy. Pokèmon GO is not available in India, but surprisingly the game works. So, you will have to create a fake account with a email id that has not been used for another apple id. (I recommend making a new email id altogether because pokemon go can access your email).
