Pokemon Go has taken Hawai‘i and much of the rest of the world by storm, now with more users than the Twitter app. Last night businesses reported their biggest nights ever at the KS sponsored Pokemon night in Our Kakaako. Just minutes ago, a happy dad reported on the Pokemon Hawai'i Facebook page, "Me and my two son's finally got these guys. We had to grind it out to them lol. It was a blast making memories with them and traveling around the island looking for pokemon haha. And a big thank you!!! To the pokemon go hawaii group with all the tips and spots to catch pokemon. red,blue,yellow you guys are awesome. Thanks again." A lotta people are enjoying this!
Two weeks after launch, tech site BGR claimed a tenth of American consumers were playing Pokemon go daily for over an hour. Serious players wonder if recent updates are attempts to weed out dilettante players and open server space for players who will go deep and shell out for extras. The joke is Pokemon Go did more for daily fitness than Michelle Obama could do in two years. Learning the metric system is another bonus.
