Overnight sensation

I’m still in shock at the overnight popularity of this new phenomenon called Pokemon Go.

For those of you who haven’t heard about this popular game yet, Pokemon Go is a mobile phone game that uses GPS and cameras on smartphones to catch these critters called Pokemon, which are these little virtual characters you can’t see with the naked eye. You can only see them if you play the game and have the app installed on your smartphone. Then players can battle each other with their Pokemon, train their Pokemon and so on.
