News post – Catch-23 No. 894 Pokémon Go

Pokémon Go, Nintendo’s augmented reality pocket monster mobile app, has gripped the world (well, the countries it has been released in).

There were a few angles I considered for this strip – the other idea asked whether Pokémon Go is even a game at all. In order to play it you literally have to get out of your house and walk around, interacting with the world and other people – the very antithesis of the stereotypical video game.

I never got into Pokémon – other nerdy pursuits, yes, just not this one. I feel like that’s really paying off now as people are really getting hooked on this app. Dodged a bullet there.

A parting gift for today. I did not come up with this joke, but it’s good.

Q: How do you get Pikachu on a stick?

A: Poke him on.
