Pokémon Go has changed the way we game. Free, location-based and addicting, Pokémon Go players virtually interact with each other and their Pokémon in a totally new way using GPS and cameras.

As players venture out into the real world, their avatars travel along the game’s map. This matters since different Pokémon species are found in their natural habitats (water-type Pokémon like to be near water.) Whether you like augmented reality mode or the pre-rendered backgrounds, everyone is snapping screenshots of their newest catches. Downtown Plano is rumored to be a good place to find them…

If you’re looking for a safe and family-friendly Pokéstop or gym, Main Event is inviting players into all of its 28 centers this weekend for even more Pokémon fun and a free $5 Bonus FUNcard.
