Well, now we have those days back with us and all thanks to the new launch in gaming world the “POKEMON GO”.

Developed by Niantic and published by the Pokemon company “POKEMON GO” is a free location based real time mobile game available on ios and android smartphones. Pokemon go was launched in AUSTRALIA, US & EUROPE ON 6th & 13th of July 2016 respectively. Pokemon go is an augmented reality game in which the users can relive the Pokemon days in the real life. The game uses the GPS system and the camera to find the Pokemon in the real world.
The players can find, catch, train and battle with Pokemon in the similar ways as shown in the cartoon series. Pokemon go has been accepted by the users with lots of love which has lead to development of wearable devices that would result in better experience for the gamer in the coming future. Also the future release of the POKEMON GO PLUS to alert the user when Pokemon is around will take the gaming experience on another level.

YES! You have read it right. POKEMON GO has actually helped many people to overcome their depression, many esteemed doctors and medical professors have studied and noted positive changes in depression patients after they started playing the POKEMON GO. Mental and Physical health of the gamer gradually just in a weeks time started to show improvement. NINTENDO has been blessed by the POKEMON GO which is said to have surpassed the profit earning when compared to the CANDY CRUSH SAGA which actually brought huge profit for the company when it was launched.
“POKEMON GO IS SURROUNDED BY CONTROVERSIES”
SAD BUT TRUE ! In-spite of the fact that POKEMON GO gave such good response in its first week of release but it also got into a few controversies. People are going crazy because there all time dream of catching Pokemon like ASH has now become true. But what they forgot is that they live in a real world and not in their virtual life and those Pokemon do not exist in reality and are not seen by others who do not have access to these games. So how are they suppose to know why you suddenly put up a break in your car ? Or why are you seen in a unknown residential area ? you must be getting confused about what types of question am I putting up on you, but such kinds of incidents have been reported.
Pokemon go is questioned to be danger.
POKEMON GO lead to road accidents.
yes people while driving the cars when receive alerts for having a Pokemon around them are very eager to catch them and this eagerness and excitement resulted in road accidents. in such a case my piece of advice is play Pokemon and enjoy but do not convert it into a “HIGHWAY TO HEAVEN”.
Pokemon Go players swarmed a housing development in Rhodes
the players caused a havoc in the housing development in Rhodes, Sydney while catching their Pokemon and finding poke-stop.
Question over locations for catching Pokemon
POKEMON GO is facing issues and is being criticized because of the places where Pokemon can be found. MEMORIALS, CEMETERIES, CHURCHES, TEMPLES instead of experiencing silence and peace are now hearing loud voices saying “OH ! SEE THERE IS THE POKEMON GOTTA CATCH EM ALL ”
Police had to intervene and interrupt the players
In order to catch POKEMON people were observed trespassing private properties and violating the privacy of residents living in a locality. The residents were then forced to call the police to intervene and investigate behind the presence of the person in an unknown locality.
people tend to get lost in unknown localities
many of the people in search of Pokemon lost there actual way while taking an unknown road leading to the Pokemon. It actually is a very dangerous thing , imagine for a while what if you are lost in an area you have no idea about and the battery of your phone goes of and there is no way going back all on your own ?
POKEMON GO IS NOT THAT EVIL IT HAS CONTRIBUTED A LOT OF GOOD AS WELL.
In-spite of being amidst all these controversies POKEMON GO managed to earn a good reputation.
ease to catch criminals
since people became suspicious when a players trespassed the properties they gained the confidence to report such sort of matter which out of scare they never did before. Resulting affect was that it became easier for the police and security services to get hold of the criminals.
business getting benefits
Many businesses have been benefited because of the presence of the poke-stops in the nearby locality. Not only that but a business itself can also be a poke-stop attracting the player to come and visit.
Educational areas started to mark visitors presence
places like art galleries and commemorative and museums that use to stay empty before are now marking presence of visitors in a large number. POKEMON GO may be the reason but at least people have now started to visit these places.
SINCE OUR CHILDHOOD DREAM OF CATCHING A POKEMON CAME TRUE WHAT WE ALL NEED TO KNOW IS THAT THIS GAME DESERVES A BIG TIME THUMBS UP. IT ACTUALLY PROVED BEING A BOON TO LOT MANY PEOPLE, GAVE THEM HAPPINESS AND BROUGHT THEM CLOSER TO THEIR FRIENDS AS WELL. THE CONTROVERSIES HOWEVER CANNOT BE NEGLECTED BUT A PLAYER NEEDS TO KNOW WHAT HIS OR HER LIMITATIONS ARE WHILE PLAYING. GAME WAS LAUNCHED WITH AN INTENTION OF LETTING US LIVE OUR CHILDHOOD DREAM AND NOT CAUSING NUISANCE. SO IT IS IN HAND OF THE GAMER NOW WHETHER TO MAKE OR BREAK THE REPUTATION OF THIS FABULOUS GAME.
