Pokemon, a Quick Summary of the Franchise

Short for pocket monsters, Pokemon exists as a TV show, a trading card game,
video games and toys. The Pokemon themselves are creatures that live in the wild or
with their owner, also known as their trainer. The trainer’s goal is to catch them all. The
original Pokemon is a role-playing game based around building a small team of
monsters to battle other monsters in a quest to become the best. Pokemon are divided
into types, such as water and fire, each with different strengths.For example, to gain an
advantage over a Pokemon that cannot beat an opponent’s Charizard character
because of a weakness to fire, a player might substitute a water-based Pokemon. The
first reason why Pokemon is so popular is because of its mascot Pikachu. He is a little
yellow creature that has the ability to control lightning. The only words he says are "Pika
Pika". Many people find Pikachu adorable. Much fluffy
merchandise has been made about Pikachu and other cute Pokemon.

TCG, Trading Card Game

How many cards do you need to play Pokemon? Each player has a deck of
exactly 60 cards, consisting of Pokémon cards, energy cards, item cards and trainer

Pokemon GO is a location-based game that challenges users to find and collect
Pokemon characters in real life. It’s a treasure hunt mixing digital fantasy with reality.
Pokemon Go became huge quickly, garnering tons of press and players shortly after its
July 2016 launch. People went as far as to craft exercise programs around the game,
which required you to walk around to find and catch 'em all. How does it work? As users
walk around the real world, Pokemon characters appear on the game map. When users
come within a close enough range the Pokemon will appear on the device screen and
users throw PokeBalls at them to capture them. The aim is to collect as many different
characters as possible. Pokemon Go has received several updates since its launch,
making it incredibly fun to play. It requires you to get up, leave the couch, and visit
real-world locations to replenish important items, participate in Gym and Raid Battle.
You should check out Pokemon Go because you can meet new people! Especially if
you are in a city with a decent amount of people, you will find people playing this game
all over the place. Go with a group of friends that also use Pokemon Go and head to
some park or any public area.
