(WARNING: I say Pokemon a lot in this review) For those of you who live under a rock in an internet free land, Pokemon GO is the latest “big thing,” not too long ago that being Overwatch (which is still big, and still fantastic,) in where you can download a free app on your phone, go outside, and catch gen one Pokemon monsters.
