Tired Of Pokémon Go? Introducing Pokémon Drive!

Tired Of Pokémon Go? Introducing Pokémon Drive!

Pokémon Go is old news, time your car and play the newest version!


Pokémon Go has gripped America over the past week or so. Never having participated in the Pokémon culture myself, I was stunned by how many of my friends became obsessed with the new game within hours of its release.

For those who do not know, Pokémon Go is an app that allows the player to search for and capture Pokémon in the real world. The player may walk down the streets on a GPS and try to “Catch em’ all!” A Pokémon is typically a rat mixed with a plant, or a rabbit mixed with some kind of material like rocks or dirt. In fact, a figure shows that 83% of all Pokémon are half bunny.

Despite the recent popularity the new game has achieved, its makers are already seeing a steep decline in usage. It appears that it might just have been a fad that was destined to die once the shock value wore off. Therefore, the Pokémon Go creators have worked extremely hard to quickly produce their new app: Pokémon Drive.

Pokémon Drive has all of the best elements of Pokémon Go. There is a GPS and you must go around and look for the little rabbit-like creatures in the streets. But there is one key difference: you must play the game while you are driving.

I know exactly what you are thinking, why didn’t I come up with that idea! Well its producers are just as excited, and they want you to know just how fun the game is. They released the following statement:

“Welcome to Pokémon Drive! In this updated game you will drive your car down the various American highways, boulevards, streets, and avenues, staring at your phone or mobile device in search of Pokémon. And remember, don’t bother trying to do so when you’re walking, because it only works when you’re in a car!”

The fan reaction has been incredible. One gamer stated, “Never has gathering Pokémon been so fun and easy. Last night I was cruising down I-94, I was looking down at my phone for the rare Mewtwo, when I steadily drifted in the left lane without noticing. The car behind me had to swerve to get out the way just in time, and he gave me a violent honk. It was perfect timing, I noticed my driving error, and I got back in my lane just in time to catch Mewtwo, completely by mistake!”

Another gamer, who had downloaded the game as soon as it came out, said, “This game makes Pokémon Go look like the old card game I used to play. Yesterday I was driving my four children to school, and I decided to play some Pokémon Drive. My annoying kids kept on telling me to “keep your eyes on the road,” or “you missed that red light”, or “you just hit mom,” but I learned to tune them out. I actually collected 6 Pokémon that day, this game rocks!”

I can’t wait to hear what they come up with next! I did hear a rumor they were developing a version exclusively for pilots, but I can never be sure.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Honey has been a staple in my Ayurvedic skincare routine since I was a kid and my grandmother used to make me homemade paste-like face masks by mixing chickpea flour, turmeric, honey, and yogurt together.

I now use honey head to toe — on my hair to make it extra shiny, on my face for its natural smoothing and anti-bacterial properties, and the rest of my body for its extreme textural and brightening benefits. Some people even use it on their armpits for honey's lightening effect on the skin.

People Are Eating Salads For Breakfast, And It's About Time

As Americans we know we all need to eat more fruits and veggies, why not do it at breakfast?

I first started seeing a dietitian in late 2017. At the time, I was the heaviest I've ever been at about 210 lbs. At the first appointment, my dietitian asked me to record what I ate in a food diary so she could better understand my habits and give me better direction in changing my lifestyle. I did exactly that and returned a week later, diary in hand. After a cursory glance at the pages, she first remarked at how few fruits and vegetables I ate. Deep down I had already known that, but what I didn't know then was that I was far from being alone in that respect. According to a Times article, about 90 percent of Americans don't consume enough fruits and vegetables to meet current dietary guidelines. It's hardly rocket science as to why that is — many of our diets consist mainly of carbs and non-planted based protein. This isn't to say that carbs and protein are the devils; they're both parts of a balanced diet. However, vegetables and fruit are also part of a balanced diet — a part that often gets neglected. So, when I see people on Instagram eating salad for breakfast, I think to myself "It's about time!"

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever. I have never been so productive in my life and I truly believe it's because the coffee is organic.
