Am I right?
I totally I called it… Pokèmon summer. I had no idea.
I’m not afraid to say I like trendy things. I love to be doing the new fun thing! A lot of my friends are this way too, so when they started talking about Pokémon Go and catching Pokèmon at the Walmart YEAH I was curious.
I was super excited to get it for LT until I saw the crazy train permission requests. Like, my Windows 10 gave me less trouble. Well, almost. After only a little research I started seeing some serious technical and physical safety concerns and I had to lay the fatwa on P-Go.
Now my husband, who used to play ingress, actually downloaded the Pokémon go app without me knowing. I’m over here researching the cumulative safety concerns… He’s catching Pikachu and leveling up. He thought it was a good family-time app, and I saw his point! After several days of discussion about the best ways to protect LT’s safety I conceded defeat.
- Use the Pokèmon Trainer Club login option
- Play on an old iPhone with limited content (we were lucky enough to have an old one)
- Share data and WATCH IT
- Create a gmail for P-Go usage
- Set the ground rules pre-download. (I admit. Time limits have been hard to stick with because it is so FUN.)
I’d be a terrible Pokèmon Trainer, but look how happy they are.
Are you and your kids playing? Do you like it? Let me know in the comments or on Twitter @missymrsmom
