Pokémon Go. Should We Catch ‘Em All?

In junior high, I was the only kid in school who didn’t have parachute pants. In high school, I never owned a pair of Air Jordans. And now—unlike, it would seem, the rest of the free world—I have not yet downloaded Pokémon Go. My wife has. My grown kids have. I’m about the last holdout I know. And even now I’m wondering, should I hop on this fad and, for once, join the cool kids? Should I try my hand at hunting peek-a-chew, whatever they are?

Well, thankfully, my cohorts at Plugged In have been funneling a great deal of information in our direction. Just this Friday, Jake and Adam gave us all a quick rundown of Pokémon Go in our vodcast. Our intrepid game reviewer, Bob Hoose, just wrapped up his review of the game itself. And now, just as promised, Adam has a more in-depth look at what we all need to know before playing, whether we’re looking after our own kids or are big kids ourselves.

So if you want to know more about Pokémon Go, head on over to the main Focus on the Family site and see what Adam has to say. Meanwhile, I’m going to call maintenance. People keep saying there’s a Charmander or somesuch lurking around my desk.
