Do we really want them to Go or do we want them to stay so that we can catch them all? But first, I want to say thank you to my lovely wife Joanne for contributing the cool items for my pics.
Pokemon Go is a huge sensation, my own kids seem to think so. My oldest daughter for instance, got me to meet up with her at least once a week to "walk" around different parts of San Diego. Is it Pokemon time or father time? Its a combination of both and I'm okay with it. She involves me in the process and I'm really interested. Well, only because it has given her a way to exercise, spend time with her dad, and enjoy her games.
How do you see this phenomena? What is your opinion of this game that has kids wanting to get out of the house and searching for digital make belief creatures you can throw Poke balls at and catch them?
I read an article today about how an 18 year old in Texas got bit by a rattlesnake because he was so fixed by the game and didn't see the venomous snake. He was rushed to the hospital. There have also been reports of other minor accidents because of this game, but overall, it is serving a decent purpose, or is it?
This game is very new and only time will tell of how far something like this can go. I see schools implementing something like this and using it with the core subjects using it to engage students into learning their times tables, nouns, and planets. I can see field trips being a much more engaging experience, but they all have to be done with safety of course.
Gotta catch them all or do we? I'm curious about what other people think and are saying.
