5 Reasons Why Pokémon Go Is The Best Game In History

5 Reasons Why Pokémon Go Is The Best Game In History

It is just genuinely a good game.


Pokémon Go is an augmented reality GPS based game where you explore the real life world and catch all the original 151 Pokémon. If you haven't heard of this game yet, then you need to crawl from under your rock and download it now. In Huntsville, the two main hubs for Pokémon Go is Big Spring Park and Bridge Street Town Centre. Why should you Download this spectacular game? Well...

1. You will meet lots of different people and create new friendships

The first person I met we were friends in an instant. We both knew we both liked Pokémon and we were both on Team Instinct (GO INSTINCT). When I went to Bridge Street to catch some new Pokémon, I went to Red Robin's for lunch, and the service there is the best it has ever been. Ever since the launch of Pokémon Go, everyone just seems very friendly to each other.

2. You will discover places you have never heard of before

If you have ever been to Big Spring Park in Downtown Huntsville, you have probably heard of "The Flame." I heard of it the moment I returned to Big Spring Park after a few years. When going there again yesterday, I realized that this flame had been on fire every time I visit. Is it really on fire forever?

3. You will lose lots of weight

I have been playing this game every day since its launch a few weeks ago. Since Pokémon Go is a location based game, that means you actually have to go outside and walk around to Catch Em All. With me walking a few miles a day playing Pokémon Go, marching band, and eating much better lately, I have been the happiest with how my body looks in years.

4. Statistically, it has the most downloads

According to MyNintendoNews, Pokémon Go has reached 50 million downloads in record time and now has more than 75 million downloads. That's a lot of players. What's even more astonishing is that the game isn't even out in every country yet!

5. It is just genuinely a good game

Pokémon is just a great franchise and I have been a part of the community since childhood, and now that I can catch Pokémon in the real world, it literally is a dream come true. Every 90s and early 2000 babies are all living the dream of being a Pokémon trainer in this fantastic year of 2016. The great part about it is that the game is only about 10% complete, according to CEO of Niantic, John Hanke. It will take several years for the game to be 100% complete and I hope all of you will enjoy it as much as I do now.

Take it easy, be safe, and have fun!

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
