If you ever notice an uncommonly large group of Millennial vinas on their phones in a public space at an odd hour, chances are they are playing Pokémon Go. Pokémon Go is the augmented reality app that allows you to “catch ‘em all” (Pokémon) as you move about the world IRL. Since the only way to find new varieties of Pokémon is to actually go out and walk to places of interest, this hot new app is giving us another way to get active and an opportunity to meet new vinas.
Here are three ways to catch ‘em all while catching a sweat with a friend:
1. INCUBATE AND HATCH YOUR EGGS AT THE SAME TIME.
Aside from Pokémon, you can find a good assortment of goodies at every Pokéstop, including eggs. Eggs contain both common and rare Pokemon, but can only be incubated and hatched when you walk a certain number of kilometers. Plan a vina date around incubating your 10km eggs together. You can even name your hatched Pokémon after each other!
2. GO ON ROUTINE WALKS TO WATCH POKÉMON TOGETHER.
If you have a favorite route with the maximum amount of Pokéstops in your neighborhood, share the journey with a vina. After a brisk walk, be sure to stop the ice cream parlor that doubles as a Pokémon gym. #TreatYourselves
3. USE THESE AUGMENTED REALITY SCREENSHOTS TO PRACTICE YOUR YOGA POSES.
One of the best parts of Pokémon Go is that you can take a picture of your catch with AR screenshots. Have fun practicing your yoga form by snapping your sun salutations next to Pikachu. Tap into your inner child’s pose!
