Pokémon Go: Quick Facts on the Augmented Reality Game Taking Over the World

A new mobile game app called Pokémon Go has officially taken control of our country.

(If you recall, Pokémon are those fictional "pocket monsters" that were so popular back in the 1990’s in video games, TV shows and trading card games.)

Bringing it back to the 21st century, Nintendo and the Pokémon Company recently teamed up to create a new augmented-reality video game for mobile devices. The app is unique for its utilization of the GPS and camera features in the discovery of Pokémon characters.

The objective of the game is to explore the real world, capture all of the Pokémon, and train them to battle other Pokémon.
