I am a sinner.

I never got into the whole Pokemon craze. It was something I had little interest in. It was up there with Magic: The Gathering. I had no interest. When I saw there was a Pokemon mobile game I laughed at it. How could this turn out well? The card game was boring. Why would this be any different? Then, I saw the game spread like wildfire. People were outside looking like zombies walking around oblivious to everything around them. Then they started to get into little groups. Now, in a short week, I see meet ups planned. People are going out "hunting." The game has really taken off like wild fire. I'm quite surprised by that. I tried it out and I can see where the draw is coming from. It's an adult, well, not really adult, version of a digital scavenger hunt. How long will it last, who knows? It may be a fad. It may not be. One thing's for sure, it's an interesting jump off for what is bound to spur hundreds of clones and variations.
