So I’m sure I don’t have to tell anyone, but a new Pokemon craze has engulfed not just the United States, but pretty much the planet.  This current craze was sparked due to the release of Pokemon Go, which if you didn’t know is a mobile game that allows the player to actually go outside and capture Pokemon by using their phone.  Due to the popularity of this new game, Pokemon as a whole has exploded back onto the market, which honestly I’m pretty happy about.

Growing up with Pokemon starting with the launch of the Red and Blue versions of the Gameboy game,  I am happy to see the glorious return of the little creatures.  Since I had so much fun with Pokemon growing up, I quickly hopped back on the bandwagon, but this time I brough my family right along with me.  My wife after some initial skeptisism for the game, finally downloaded Pokemon Go, and we had our kids running around the parks collecting Pokemon.

Not only did I get them all into Pokemon Go, but I also now have my girls collecting the cards.  Whenever they’re well behaved or help out I get them a pack of cards and they have fun opening them and putting them in their binders.  My 9 year old even wants to start playing the card game, so when they get back up here to Illinois I plan to take her to the local game shop to first watch the game played and then to help her learn all the rules.

Let me know what you think of the current Pokemon craze.  Are you for it or against it?  Let me know in the comments below.  As always any likes/shares/comments/ and follows are greatly appreciated.
