Celebrities among the fans searching for Pokemon

The Pokemon Company is part-owned by Nintendo, which has relied on the pocket monsters to be a major driver of its handheld game systems for 20 years. Nintendo also is an investor in Niantic.

So, is Pokemon GO the future of mobile gaming? What follows is a summary of jokes those late-night talk-show hosts have made about the hit game. Al Franken (D-Minn.) sent a letter to Niantic, the company behind Pokemon Go, posing a series of questions to clarify how the company will handle user information. The item most commonly reported stolen is any chance at a real adulthood.

She had watched the cartoon and played the games, and there she was one day, helpfully orienting me on the popular characters as I proved to be totally ignorant about the franchise beyond recognizing Pikachu, as well as Ash from the anime series. On the bright side, they finally found a way to get people to attend the Rio Olympics.

Pokemon uses Geotagging just like Ingress.

Nintendo's stock has surged since "Pokemon Go" became available in the United States of America, recently trading at about 26,500 yen ($250) a share in Tokyo, up more than 40 percent from its levels before "Pokemon Go". He leaves a wife, two kids, and six Squirtles. "That's why they'll blow everybody out of the water once they start take iOS and Android more seriously than they do now", Toto said. Super addictive.

EU's Mogherini: "No excuse" for Turkey to abandon rule of law
F-16s attacked Turkey's parliament building, and helicopters fired at the country's intelligence headquarters. Bozdag said "the United States would weaken itself by protecting him, it would harm its reputation".

Pokemon GO is on track to be the first mobile game to break the $4 billion-per-year wall, beating out Candy Crush Saga and Supercell's Clash of Clans, according to Macquarie Research.

Nearly overnight, "Pokemon Go" has become the nation's bestselling mobile game, lifting the outlooks for Nintendo and the small San Francisco gaming start-up that licensed the animated franchise. Not quite as successful: the people playing it.

The phenomenal success of Pokemon GO and the surge in Nintendo Co's 7974.T market value by $17 billion in just over a week has been seized upon by one of its most vocal investors to press for a change of strategy at the company. Meanwhile, players in North Korea are reporting problems capturing a really angry Jigglypuff. There have been location-based apps before (remember when everyone was battling to check in to the most places on Foursquare?), and there have even been location-based augmented reality (AR) apps, which overlay digital graphics onto the real world.

The Pokemon GO craze has sent Nintendo's shares skyrocketing since the game's debut, adding almost US$10bil to the company's market value. Capturing a Pokemon gives you experience points which, in the long run, will allow you to find rarer and stronger Pokemon.
