For the third time in our generation Pokémon has managed to become a global phenomenon. From a card trading game to the best thing to come out on Gameboy and now an augmented reality masterpiece, Pokémon is the perfect example of a series keeping up with the times.
Granted their latest offering was quite a few years coming, it is however worth the wait. Technology, the internet and some very smart people have now turned our childhood wishes of capturing, training and evolving Pokémon into a reality.
Using a combination of your phones gps, camera and maps Pokémon Go allows players to travel out into the real world and find Pokémon. Catching Pokémon is as easy as flicking a Pokéball at them on your phones screen.
