    I told this story on iMore but I will tell it here, back in the OLD days, around 1996 or 1997, I went to E3, or the Electronic Entertainment Expo, in Atlanta. A company called TEN or Total Entertainment Network, and is now known as pogo.com took me. I was one of there Guide leaders (sorta like the Mod Team Leader job I had at CrackBerry). A Guide for them was sorta a mix of a Mod and Ambassador combined. Anyways they took a few of us to E3 (twice!) and the first 1, we met up with the guys from a then popular console gaming company, perhaps you have heard of them? Nintendo! lol Anyways they were telling us about this pokemon game they were bringing over from Japan where it was already starting to become a hit. They had BIG plans, besides many games of course, they wanted to do plush toys, TV, movies, a card game, the sky was the limit! I thought it was stupid and it would fail miserably. Now what 20 years later and STILL going strong! Guess you can see why I don't make major decision for gaming companies! lol

    Interesting story.

    Kudos to them for raising it to avail of the latest smartphone with gps era.

    I really don't have a problem with it

    At something like $7 billion and counting you rarely see such a quickly rising phenomenon.
    Never seen anything taking every 2nd page in a newspaper (eg Washington Holocaust Memorial Museum today).
    It's having it's day!
    Maybe when it quietens down I'll actually play it.

    Agree with "sfoLAX" Pokémon is the Topic of The Day in all
    major News outlets. What's the special on this game.?

    I'm not a Gamer and won't use my Data for games. But I think the
    OP=pkcable has a point. As stated the Game was originated

    in Japan..So let's heard more opinions & Stay Tuned! - Bye
