Are you obsessed with Pokemon go because i know i am but would you believe that there are people out there who just aren’t convinced enough to play, so to all those Pokemon go players out there hit the thumbs up and to all those that don’t play, i have five reasons why you should start playing today.
I’d like to take only a few seconds here to explain what Pokemon go is to the people that don’t really know, Pokemon go is an alternate reality game that you play on your phone. you travel around to different parks libraries and churches catching different virtual Pokemon and fighting in different pokey gyms. that’s a very general overview though.
Now what makes Pokemon goes so freaking awesome is that this is the Pokemon game we’ve been waiting for four years. when Pokemon red and blue or first released, we were also amazed and yet secretly deep inside, we wanted the actual ability to travel around our schools and catch real Pokemon and finally now after 20 years, it’s a real thing so if you’re not playing Pokemon go here are my five reasons why you should.
Pokemon go gives you a reason to get out of your house, they’ve been tons of articles that have come out that show that Pokemon go is great for helping people with depression, anxiety and the fear of leaving their own home.
Pokemon go is working wonders for mental health. the whole premise of the game is to not sit at home and play but instead to go outside to travel across the land searching far and wide. for many people with mental health issues, sometimes even getting out of bed can be hard but now that the game is intersected nostalgia game-play and the social activity, it’s a lot easier for people to go outside.
Pokemon go helps connect people with other like-minded people, now i have to admit i first thought it would be kind of weird running into other people playing but when I actually did it was kind of awesome.
Everyone playing has the same goals to catch where Pokemon to level them up and to be the leader of your own gym and meaning someone else on that journey is super cool whether it’s standing around on a street corner after Laura module has been launched or watching a bunch of people run over to go catch a rare Pokemon.
