Pokemon Go: Narendra Modi Gotta Catch ‘Em All?
Narendra Modi has been travelling extensively, even more so in 2016. He has traveled through the grassy terrains of Tanzania and Kenya, the stone cold lowlands of Afghanistan, the rolling plateaus of Switzerland and finally, the hot sandy deserts of Saudi Arabia. Why would the Prime Minister wish to travel through such varied topographies in such a small span of time?
Internet users have found the answer:
For the uninitiated, Pokemon Go is a ‘real world adventure game’ which uses GPS to detect where and when the player can find a Pokemon around him. The motive is to catch as many of these creatures as possible into a contraption called a Pokeball. The real world wild goose chase behind these Pokemons has made the game an internet sensation.
Pokemons have types, which are very similar to cultures. You don’t find all types within a particular region, and looking for them requires a lot of travel and focus, especially if you want to stumble upon a rare, wild one.
