Pokemon Go has taken over. Finally reaching Canadian shores, it’s funny to watch people wandering purposefully around town, trying to ‘catch em all’. It’s been almost two decades since I started playing Pokemon and in all fairness, for all its imperfections, this is what I dreamt about as a young child. Almost real Pokemon in real life. I wrote this haiku to summarise my experience with Pokemon Go so far.
Gotta catch ’em all,
Used to be little pixels
Now we’re in A.R.
