    Well Pokemon are creatures you can catch, to collect them or train them for battle. The original gen was set in a region called Kanto, with 151 Pokemon to catch. Now Pokemon is entering the 7th gen and there are over 700 Pokemon.

    The actual videogames are available from Gameboy/3ds. Starting with Red/Blue /Yellow , which is set in Kanto. Pokemon Go only includes the 151 original Pokemon, available to catch in the real world using your phone. I would say the app is based on people's nostalgia of Pokemon.

    I've always loved Pokemon since it first came out, but this app is frustrating and _sinnie_ is right that it's about money making with GO. I'm barely seeing Pokemon and I'm almost out of Pokeballs. I think I'm gonna stop and replay Platinum/HeartGold.
    oh ok I guess if i get even more bored during the summer then playing this game would be a good idea haha

    At the moment you can only do Fire, electric and water.

    I will go with flareon if possible.

    All I need is unlimited data and I'd be a happy bunny.

    A Dragon Ball Z version of this game would be interesting.
