Pokemon GO! has gained amazing popularity just for a game that started out as just a joke when Google and the Pokémon teamed up to make a game on April Fools Day. Yet somehow it became an overnight success. Though Pokémon GO isn’t actually owned by Nintendo itself but is copyrighted to The Pokémon Company, it hints their logo on the app when you first open the app.

Pokémon GO isn’t actually the first time you can catch and fight with pokémon in ‘Reality’. On the Nintendo 3DS, you could buy a pokémon game and some pokémon cards to play. Using the camera of the 3DS, you could actually see and catch the pokémon. This package came along with the trading cards which were the less popular version of the many pokémon games.

Pokémon GO has even gotten Hillary Clinton making jokes about it during her Campaign. Clinton said, ”I don’t know who created ‘Pokemon Go,’ but I’ve tried to figure out how we get them to have Pokemon … go … to … the polls.”  Another time, she had a campaign at a double pokéstop on Saturday. Hillary’s website, later on, said before that day, “Join us as we go to the Pokéstop in Madison Park and put up a lure module, get free pokémon, and battle each other while you register voters and learn more about Sec. Hillary Clinton!!! Kids welcome!”   

Pokemon GO! has been a popular enough to be put in this year’s top news stories. There have been so many accidents yet it’s still gaining popularity and players. Some players have different opinions and reasons for playing this game. Some being bored, but others just to have a reason to be outside or for YouTubers, playing it as a requested game.
