Pokemon Go phenomenon sweeps through Mitchell County

There is little doubt by now Pokemon Go is becoming the most successful mobile app of all time. The game took a mere 13 hours  to hit the top of the U.S. sales charts.

How to play

After logging into the app for the first time, the player creates their avatar. 

After the avatar is created, it is displayed at the player’s current location along with a map of the player’s immediate surroundings. Features on the map include a number of PokeStops and Pokemon gyms. PokeStops provide players with items, such as eggs, Poke Balls, and potions and can be equipped with items called lures which attract wild Pokemon. 

Gyms serve as battle locations for team-based king of the hill matches.
