Forgot what Pokemon Go is?

No worries, here’s a recap.

The game hit the Google Play Store and App Store in 2016, and back the, it was a fresh concept—an augmented reality mobile game—where users had to move around and use their phone cameras to “search” for Pokemon in their area to defeat and capture.

Like most Pokemon games, you get to choose your team before you begin playing. For Pokemon Go, the options were: Team Instinct, Team Valor and Team Mystic. Your character will change depending on what team you picked.

While the Pokemon Go trend has slightly died since 2016, the number of people playing are still extremely high. According to Business of Apps, Pokemon Go had at least 71 million active users in 2021.
