Pokémon GO has become an overnight sensation - probably far exceeding even the expectations of Nintendo America or Niantic. Tens of millions of players are already searching their world for new Pokémon, battling in gyms, and collecting various items to help increase the power of their pocket monsters.
While it's not officially available everywhere yet, you can always sideload the APK from APK Mirror (our APK is completely safe and was taken directly from the Play Store - we aren't shifting shady package files) to get in on the action.
I played for a solid couple of hours today, wandering my neighborhood (which is packed with Pokestops, apparently) and collecting new creatures and several-hundred Poké Balls. While it's not as complex or involved as Ingress, perhaps that's a good thing: Pokémon GO is designed to appeal to all age groups, and aims to be a non-intimidating way to introduce people to AR gaming through a familiar and well-loved franchise.
So, are you playing? Planning to? Tried and decided it wasn't for you? Let's talk Pokémon GO.
