The one feature we wish was included in Pokemon GO

Like pretty much anyone with a phone and two thumbs, we are super obsessed with Pokemon GO. The game reminds us of the holographic Pokemon cards of our youth and – bonus – gets us up and walking. Gotta catch ’em all, even if it means doing a 5k every time we have to hatch an egg. Though the app is already ridiculously addicting as is, we can’t help but think there’s a feature missing:

Why can’t we catch real-life things in Pokemon GO?

“But you can catch Pikachus!” you might say. Well, we hear you, but just imagine how awesome it would be if Pokemon Go reflected our daily lives. We could …

Catch the perfect karaoke song.


Go on a date with someone who has a high CP.


Use Pokemon powers in fights with our siblings.


Show the world how freaking cool we are with Poké-themed ~accessories~.


Yup, would definitely spend our whole paychecks on sunglasses for our Poké-friends. Bye, money!


So, come on! Why can’t Pokemon GO be applied to real life?


We feel so strongly about this, we created a video that gives a glimpse into a world where Pokemon GO could be used in IRL situations. Maybe Nintendo can take notes for the game’s next update.
