Catch ‘Em All: Pokemon GO at the Buena Park Library

I’m sure you’ve all heard about the latest rage in mobile apps…Pokémon GO.  It’s an updated version of the classic Pokémon game where you attempt to catch Pokémon (a play on the words, Pocket Monsters) and battle for domination.  The game uses a Google Maps like interface that takes you out into the real world to find Pokémon.  There are also Pokéstops, where you can collect Pokéballs (needed to catch your Pokémon) and gain XP (experience) to level up.

Pokémon GO is available free to download for iOS (8+) and Android (4.4 to 6.0.1).  For the most part, the game is free to play. There are some options to purchase items within the game, so watch out for that if you want to keep your gaming experience a free one!

Also, in case you haven’t already heard, the Buena Park Library has two Pokéstops, so stock up on those Pokéballs on your next visit to the library.  You can never have too many Pokéballs or Pokémon!

Look for these two Pokéstops next time you visit the Buena Park Library:bpld_pokestops
