The fundamental hook of Pokemon Go is that you can find and catch Pokemon in the real world as you explore. Some may say it’s just a gimmick, and not enough time has actually passed to determine if this is a fad or something that might stay for some time. Either way, the location factor of the gameplay is crucial to the success and fun of the game.
Pokemon can literally be found anywhere and everywhere. In rivers, or powerstations, or down random sidestreets – even secret military bases. By turning on the AR camera when trying to capture a Pokemon, the realism is intensified even further.
Now that Zubat you’re trying to catch isn’t just flying a green field, it’s hovering right above your car trying to get away from you. It’s honestly a really cool thing to see, although playing the game with the AR camera on does make it significantly harder to catch Pokemon.
When you catch a Pokemon in the real world, the game registers the location of where you found it. It’s this in particular that got Evan Scribner into hot bother with his (now ex) significant other.
While at his house, Scribner’s girlfriend saw that some of the Pokemon he had caught on his travels were located suspiciously close to his ex-girlfriend’s house. When questioned, Scribner didn’t really have a good response. Thus, Scribner ended up with yet another ex-partner to add to his list.
This just goes to show that if you’re going to try and conduct a little infidelity, then maybe leaving a record of where you’ve conducted said infidelity isn’t the smartest way to do it. Oh, and don’t try and hunt Pokemon at your ex’s place. It just doesn’t work out well for anyone.
