Los Alamos Embraces Pokemon Go!

A group is spotted Tuesday playing Pokemon Go! near Romero Cabin in downtown Los Alamos. Pokemon Go! is a new phenomenon sweeping the nation. The mobile game has already surpassed Tinder and is soon to overtake Twitter as the most actively-used Android and iOS app. It is an ‘augmented reality game’ wherein players’ physical locations are tracked via GPS as they travel around town looking for imaginary creatures called Pokémon, which ‘spawn’ for all players simultaneously at different areas. Players meet each other while searching for Pokémon and work together to track them down as part of a ‘Hot & Cold’ game. Photo by Ryn Herrmann
