The Champlain Current: Episode #4 Pokemon Go!

0 Comments


Hello and welcome! Marketing and Communications interns Ali and Vanessa here again to present to you this weeks podcast. Our topic this week is none other than Pokemon Go, the brand new app that has been taking the world by storm.

The game works like this, every user creates an avatar as a Pokemon trainer, when you move, your avatar moves as well. You then use a Google Maps like display on your phone to search for and capture Pokemon in the area. Certain landmarks such as parks, museums (including ECHO), restaurants, and shops are dubbed “PokeStops” where you can collect helpful items and when a Pokemon comes around your phone will vibrate to alert you. The game also recognizes what features are around you, for example if you are close to lakes, rivers, and oceans you are most likely going to see water based Pokemon. You then can capture the creatures in a "real time" setting. Which looks a little something like this.



The goal of the game is to train your Pokemon, use them for battles, and of course to catch them all. 

This game has been a huge hit especially for college students, bringing them back to the days of their childhood where playing Pokemon was incredibly popular.

Lately we've noticed many "trainers" around ECHO trying to catch water based Pokemon, which got us thinking...so we decided to download the app and try it out for ourselves! In this weeks podcast we will explore ECHO as Pokemon trainers and see if any Pokemon resemble our animal ambassadors (hint: they do!) 

Take a listen below!
