Pokemon Go is a game that has a steamroller effect as far as its popularity is concerned. The tsunami-like impact it has had on the UK population cannot be described in words.
With the rising popularity of Pokemon Go, one of the side effects from the app-based smartphone game is physical movement. A large number of people are going on rambling walks in order to search for PokeStops, get their fill of PokeBalls and (of course) hunt for Pokemon. The game itself was given a headstart in Australia, New Zealand and the United States.

Now though it has also begun to rear its head in the UK where it is available live on both iOS and Android. This launch in Britain occurs a day after the inauguration of the game in Germany. A large group of people have also managed to download the game through other channels, according to TechCrunch.
It is a paradox that Pokemon Go is a craze that is spreading around the world like wildfire despite the fact that it is available in only a handful of countries. Yet this is a hard fact that cannot be denied by even the most devout skeptic.

The game has reached the top spot in its contextual milieu. However, it is presenting other side effects in other settings that have surprised and shocked the world.
It outdid itself in case of Tinder and also gave Twitter a boost. Even on the big daddy social network that is Facebook, it reached record levels. These three online phenomena have seldom seen such extreme popularity in case of a single trend.
As far as social apps are concerned, Pokemon Go is the really “in” thing right now. It is a game that melds the world of electronics and computers with the real world out there. This interactive nature of the game makes it very interesting indeed. In fact, one can dare to say that it is positively addictive.
The collaborative factor is always there. People in their respective areas hook up in the lead-me-on pattern of hunting for hidden Pokemon. The yellow critters are worth searching for and our natural hunting instincts find assuagement in the modern context of an otherwise sedentary lifestyle.
