The latest smartphone trend that has everyone buzzing is the new augmented reality game Pokemon GO. For those of you who haven’t caught Pokemon fever yet, the game uses your phone’s GPS to determine where you are and makes Pokemon ‘appear’ around you on your screen so you can catch ‘em! The game is the first of its kind as it encouraged you to travel around in the real world in order to catch Pokemon in the game. Pokemon GO has caught on like wildfire and people are hunting Pokemon wherever they go. One girl even found a dead body whilst searching for Pokemon…
One great aspect of Pokemon GO is that it encourages the players to go outside and be active. Gaming is usually blamed for keeping people indoors and idle but Pokemon GO is doing the exact opposite. By placing Pokemon literally everywhere the game allows players to catch’em whether they are at home, work, out for dinner etc. and giving people the little boost they need to walk down just a few more streets. As well as encouraging people out of their homes the game is encourage people into shops such as Sephora, Forever 21 and seemingly ever mall in America. Mixing nerdy, nostalgic gaming with fashion is definitely something we support!
If you fancy spicing up your summer wardrobe with some Pokemon inspired fashion accessories- look no further!! Don’t forget to catch ‘em all!
