Pokemon Go has been a worldwide phenomenon ever since it came out last July. The hype has died down a bit, although it is still earning lots of revenue and many are actively playing it.
If you are new to the game, remember to stay safe when you are out exploring Pokemon. Not to mention look out for your mobile data to avoid getting large bills.
