If you’re like me, then you’ve been seeing your Facebook and Twitter feed jammed with news about Pokémon GO. What is it? Well it’s a AR game that uses your camera (optional) to place Pokemon (pocket monsters) all over the world and its your mission to catch them!
In order to catch them you must travel the world! (Not really, your neighborhood will suffice!) but to catch them all its in your best interest
to move around! Some Pokemon only appear in different areas. I caught a Pikachu in Throggs Neck, a Tangela in the Chrysler building, and a
Meowth on 59th street and Lex!
Here’s a couple of essentials you will need for your journey before you run out the door:
- This game is a battery drain! Bronxmama recommends a good portable charger (Like this Anker battery pack) This will keep you going all day!
- Bring water and your most comfy shoes!
- If you’re going to the beach for those water Pokemon, make sure to bring suntan lotion!
- Also a side pro tip….certain places are embracing this game and offering discounts if you show them your game!
Have fun trainers!
