The latest gaming application to sweep the masses and go viral online is a throwback to one of the biggest obsessions of the 90’s and early 2000’s. Pokemon was originally released as a video game for Game Boy but later became popular as a cartoon TV show and an entire universe of merchandise from apparel to game and television spin-offs.
In 2016, eager fans of the franchise can become Pokemon trainers in their own right by playing Pokemon Go. The app places virtual Pokemon in player’s real surroundings for them to find and capture. These are just some of the funniest screenshots from the game so far.
