Pokémon have been sited at St. Mary Anne’s! Young people all around the world are quite excited!
Yes, Pokémon has been found at two different locations in the SMA graveyard!
For those of you who are confused, there is a “Pokémon Go” app for smart phones that was just released last week.
Pokémon Go uses your phone’s GPS and clock to detect where and when you are in the game, and make Pokémon characters “appear” around you (on your phone screen). Once you locate a Pokémon, you can go and catch them.
As you move around, different and more types of Pokémon will appear depending on where you are and what time it is. The idea is to encourage you to travel around the real world to catch Pokémon in the game.The technology is called “augmented reality” and combines gaming and real world interaction.
Many historic landmarks, parks and churches are included in this game.
So since our church yard is open, you may see a few people occasionally standing around with their phones as they hunt for Pokémon!
Now, we just need them to venture into church on Sunday’s, in search of Jesus!
