You are either a Pokemon master or a Pokemon hater. Nintendo hit popularity in the late 1990’s and has now rekindled it with this app. It’s so popular that it’s on the verge of overtaking Twitter in terms of daily active users on Android! People are raving about this new game, so much so they spend an average of 45 minutes a day on it. Here are some explanations on why it is so popular if you do not understand the craze:
However, the haters do have a reason to hate. It has caused robberies, disruptions at work and business annoyances (restaurants are putting up signs saying, “you can’t catch Pokemon here unless you buy something”). Some stores though look at it as an opportunity. They spend real money on adding “digital lures” to their stores, which increases the chance of special Pokemons to arise. Of course, the people flock to these locations.
Even if you don’t want to play the game, maybe consider investing in Nintendo stock.
