Pokemon is like the Coca Cola of video games, nearly everyone knows something related to the word Pokemon. Now if you're a part of those who watched or played the original forms of it, you'll be more than amazed by the latest version called Pokemon Go. This version combines augmented reality and location based algorithms to bring the game and its creatures in the real world.

One cool thing about Pokemon Go is that the game is to be played outside at different locations, meaning that you have to go out on the city to actually find the different creatures you want to catch!
