Last Sunday morning, my husband told me about this new game he thought would be fun to play with Cohen: Pokemon Go. Sounded silly to me. Besides, we’d already gone geocaching a few times. What’s the difference?
By the next day, my Facebook feed was full of Pokemon Go and I received an assignment from Parachute by Mapquest to write this article covering safe places to hunt for Pokemon in Phoenix. Needless to say, I’m hooked.
Before you caution me about getting assaulted while Pokemon hunting, rest assured that we’re not venturing into secluded woods or strolling around shady areas in pursuit of Pokemon. We mostly walk around the neighborhood and parks near our house, which we would be doing anyway. We just do it more now.
Beats sitting on the couch playing Candy Crush all evening, right?
