Pokemon Go in Jamaica

Is Pokémon Go Jamaica ready?

Millennials, especially the 90’s babies are suddenly catching the Pokemon fever again, they are all in the “gotta catch em all” mode.

Pokémon Go has recently increased in popularity and you may have heard stories of people(especially in the US) hunting down Pokémon wherever they can.  They have been capturing Pokémon at their workplace, hospitals and even public bathrooms. One teenage girl in the US even stumbled on a dead body while looking for Pokémon. Also, police in Missouri USA claimed that four suspected robbers lured in victims with the possibility of catching Pokémon.

What is this Pokemon?

Pokémon is a franchise owned by the Nintendo consumer electronics and software company. Pokémon exploded in the late 90’s, I myself was a victim of that shockwave and I was hooked. Pokémon exploited our(human’s) weakness to the urge of achieving greatness or power. Playing Pokémon was all about who could explore to find, capture and train the strongest Pokémon and be the King/Queen of Pokémon battle.

Pokémon called Pickachco.

So basically, Pokémon Go is a genius App that uses your phone’s GPS and clock to detect where and when you are in the game and make Pokémon “appear” around you (on your phone screen) so you can go and catch them with your special pokémon balls. As you move around, different and more types of Pokémon will appear depending on where you are and what time it is. The idea is to encourage you to travel around the real world to catch Pokémon in the game. (This combination of a game and the real world interacting is known as “augmented reality.”

  1. Will I have had my Pokémon Go working from the 7th of July here is Jamaica and I am addicted more so because I am a 90’s and Pokemon was one of my favorite animations back then but as the game warn up before we start playing to be carefully and be aware of our surroundings so people need to remember that while playing.
