Pokémon Go is officially taking over the world. People are downloading APKs (on their Android devices) so they can enjoy the game everyone is talking highly about. I live in Canada, and Go has not been officially released but I downloaded the APK anyways. I’ll be honest here, I only opened the app once and caught like 4 Pokémons and just closed it. Don’t get me wrong, I love Pokémon, but I have better things to pay attention to instead of catching Pikachu.

Let’s carry on with today’s news because I’m sure you don’t want to hear me ranting. Pokémon Go has officially been deployed in the UK to ruin the lives of many (joking). It was possible to get the app unofficially, but today is the day that its up for download on the Google Playstore and the Apple Appstore.

Pokémon Go is free to download on both the stores and is a game that uses your GPS and displays Pokémons “in the real world” (augmented reality). Your goal is to go outside (yes, you need to walk) and catch Pokémons as they pop up around you. I’m not going to lie, its a pretty fun game but demolishes your battery (which is why I’m out).
