Three weeks after its release,
Pokémon Go is still all the rage in cities across America, and it’s showing no sign of slowing down.
The mobile-augmented reality game that allows players to catch Pokémon in real-life locations already broke the App Store record for number of downloads during its first week of release, and bizarre Pokestops, (like gravesites, for example) are still being discovered. Even Justin Bieber is getting in on the fun.
This week we went to a Pokémon Go Meetup in New York City’s Union Square. Several hundred people showed up to play together at the gathering, which was hosted by Rick Bross, who’s been organising meetups all over the city. Last week, almost 1,200 people showed up to play in Washington Square Park.
Ahead, 10 people explain why they’re completely obsessed with the game.
