Advocate staff photo by MATTHEW HINTON–Dorothy Zhang smiles as she catches a Pokemon on the Pokemon Go app in Jackson Square as she walks around in the French Quarter in New Orleans, La. Tuesday, July 12, 2016. The app uses GPS and time to tell a player where and when they are in the game and make Pokemon appear as they move around on the phone’s screen. Then players can get the Pokemon by flicking their fingers on the screen. The Nintendo-owned franchise, which was popular in the 1990s, has now spread worldwide again with the app creating a new version of “Pokemon fever.”




Lace up your shoes, grab your phones and join the hunt for POKEMON GO COMMUNITY DAY Saturday at 11 a.m. in Jackson Square.
