Pokemon Go is a free-to-play location-based augmented reality mobile game, developed by Niantic and published by The Pokemon Company as part of the Pokemon franchise. It was released worldwide in July 2016 for iOS and Android devices.
The game allows players to capture, battle, and train virtual Pokemon who appear throughout the real world. It makes use of GPS and the camera of compatible devices.
So, what do I know about Pokemon Go? Absolutely nothing except for one thing...if you want HOURS of time with your teen son, get him to download it immediately (I'm guessing he probably already has it downloaded!).
This app has only been out for barely a week but it dominates the conversation between Colby and I. Anytime I get in the car, he wants to know if he can come. I don't care if he's searching out tiny virtual Pokemon, he's in the car with ME! It's time we have together and that time is hard to come by! I'll drive him all over Bryan/College Station if he wants me to!
