There's a new phenomenon that's really big in Los Alamos now -- it's a mobile game called "Pokémon Go". It has already surpassed Tinder and is soon to overtake Twitter as the most actively-used Android & iOS app. It's an "augmented reality game" wherein players' physical locations are tracked via GPS as they travel around the town looking for imaginary creatures called Pokémon, which "spawn" for all players simultaneously at different areas. Players meet each other while searching for Pokémon and work together to track them down as part of a "Hot & Cold" game.
