Gotta Meme ‘Em All
The long-awaited augmented reality game Pokémon GO is finally here, and it’s taking the gaming world by storm.
But even those of us who don’t play video games may have noticed a hysterical new trend, which is the internet reacting to Pokémon GO with some seriously dank memes.
Developed by Niantic for iOS and Android, Pokémon GO is free (with in-app purchases available) and allows users to walk around the real world, using a Bluetooth connection that notifies players when a Pokémon is nearby. They appear on screen and can be fought and captured if the player is quick and strong enough. Basically, it’s real-life Pokémon.
Needless to say, the internet is already having a field day with the impact Pokémon GO is having on the world, and the memes they’re spitting out are too funny not to share.
