Apparently the task of 'catching them all' is too daunting.
Like all great fads of modern day, Pokemon Go is fading away. According to recent studies, Pokemon Go's usership and daily engagement have begun to steadily decline - seemingly fulfilling the prophecy of the quick rise to the top ending with an even quicker rush to the bottom. We'll try not to get ahead of ourselves - Pokemon Go is still alive and well - and these are predictions based on data (not divine prophecy). But it just makes sense though, doesn't it? Pokemon Go - the biggest bandwagon of 2016 - losing the world's interest in a matter of weeks? Apparently the Twitters and Tinders of the world are rejoicing at the news that their vacuum competitor (Pokemon Go literally sucks out your phone battery) has arrived home from its honeymoon. Now people like you and me will have more time to try to fuck each other (or at least run our fingers over each other's pixelated faces).
Salty corporations aside, people were dying out there (or at least the media was afraid they were), and in all honestly, kidnapping adorable creatures and forcing them into slavery and gladiator-ship is a pretty fucked up message to send children (and adults). If Pokemon Go wants to adapt to the changing political landscape, perhaps they should consider setting their precious mutant beings free into the wild. We're not sure how that would translate into a game, but we bet it'd create their so coveted spike in interest (at least in the animal activism circles). Pokemon come, pokemon go - stay strong, Pika - the end is nigh.
