Pokemon Go really could save the world!!!
Or like, the children of the world. The children who have access to and play video games.
So it could save the future of kids in developed countries and stuff. Yay!
This isn’t really an exaggeration though. Pokemon Go could reverse the effects that video games caused on kids decades ago. Kids staying inside to play video games and never going outside to explore or do normal kid stuff could be changed, or at least influenced, by video games like Pokemon Go.
For anyone who doesn’t know what the game is, it’s basically Pokemon but you play it through an app on your smartphone and go to REAL locations to find Pokemons! It’s a lot cooler than that explanation but I haven’t played it yet so you’ll have to try it for yourself. Also it’s free.
There have been some complications though, with people being tricked into going to remote locations and being robbed, but for the most part it is encouraging people to go outside to exercise, explore, and socialize! The three things video games stopped kids from doing in the first place.
There is hope!
