Pokemon Go is nothing like the Game Boy game you remember – it’s a free mobile game that lets you see tiny creatures called Pokemon through the window of your phone, as if they existed in the real world. Then, you can catch them. (One player says they’ve already caught ’em all.)
It’s also wildly popular: Pokemon Go was released in the US on July 6th and it only took four days to become the No. 1 free app in the US iTunes App Store.
If you’re an absolute Pokemon beginner, here’s everything you need to know.
