Unless you've been living in a Kimmy Schmidt-style bunker the past month, you've probably heard of Pokémon Go. Or you've noticed a lot more people wandering the streets at night, except in a less murder-y, more giggly kind of way.

Note from john (the hubby of Jen)- I corrected the second name to Ivysaur. However, I also left the Epcot in the comments because every single one of you was polite in correcting me. This is the way the internet should be and I'm consistently proud of you readers for being awesome.
