If you have an internet connection, there’s a pretty good chance that you’ve heard about Pokémon GO at least once over the past few days. If not, it’s a new gaming app that uses location to allow users to find Pokémon in their area. The game has been getting lots of attention for getting app users to actually go outside to “catch ’em all.” (In fact, data is showing that Android users will soon be using Pokémon GO more than Twitter!)
There are over 100 species of Pokémon that users can catch, and many of them have been caught around New Jersey!
Mills Tavern in Hoboken had a Charizard spotting.

If Pokemon isn't your thing, we have plenty of booze! #inmikeywetrust #millstavern #hoboken #upshow #pokemongo #charizard #catchemall #dontcatchsomethingelse #getdrunk #makefriends #tipmikey
A Magikarp was found floating in the Hudson River.
The app is even getting people to stay active! One gamer went all over Elmwood Park in search of Pokémon!
Apparently, Jersey City is a hotspot for Pinsers.
Pokemon GO is available for iPhone and Android. Due to the popularity of the app, it’s currently difficult to make an account.
