HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT.
Pokémon GO is finally here.
It’s Nintendo‘s answer to our rampant thirst to Pokémon IRL ever since Ash Ketchum got thundershocked by an aggressive baby Pikachu. For some reason, it’s rolled out in Australia first (timezones, maybe??), but the rest of the world is likely to get it within the next 24 hours.
Pokémon GO lets you wander the world and ‘catch’ Pokémon in the real world – or in this writer’s case, on her editor’s desk. Got me a Charmander.
Okay, three things:
1. It is FREE.
2. It’s weirdly not appearing in the App or Play Store, so just Google ‘Pokémon GO’ on your phone and download it that way.
3. WHAT THE BLEEDING HELL ARE YOU WAITING FOR?
It’s everything we millennials have ever dreamed of.
“Wait! Don’t go out! It’s unsafe! Wild Pokémon live in tall grass!” YEAH THEY DO, Professor Oak. Smell ya later.
