Game of Thrones? What the hell is Game of Thrones? I only do Pokmon Go stuff nowadays, I don’t know anything about Gam — OH! WAIT!
THAT THING WITH THE DRAGONS THAT I WAS ENTIRELY OBSESSED WITH A FEW WEEKS AGO THAT I COULD GIVE TWO GYARADOS POOPIES ABOUT NOW?YES, YES, YES, I REMEMBER THAT THING.
Pokmon Go was unleashed on the US over the weekend, and like a Fury Swipes from a level 28 Sandslash, it effing TORETHIS PLACE UP. Seriously, everyone was playing it. It’s such a cultural phenomenon my momknew about it by Sunday night.
To put this into perspective, my mom calledit “YourTube” until about two months ago. I love her to death, but that lady does not get tech trends.
Pokmon Go is such a major short-term cultural zeitgeist that it could actually become the thing that supplants the massive “Game of Throne”-er we’ve had all summer. Seriously, we’ve all been thinking non-stop about “GoT” since the finale… until this weekend.
I haven’t thought about (redacted for spoilers) or when (redacted for spoilers) totally (redacted for spoilers) to (redacted for spoilers) the entire (redacted for spoilers).
A lot of people found out this weekend maybe “Game of Thrones” is just not important any more.
Pokmon Go is the new Game of Thrones.

Alright, I’m downloading Pokmon Go out of pure fear I’ll miss out on another social phenomenon, like I did Game of Thrones, Kanye and Uber.

Pokemon Go is a godsend for publishers looking to fill the content void previously taken by Game of Thrones fan theories stolen from Reddit.

Those who hate all things FUN AND ENJOYABLE are not having an easy time with this.
I’ll never complain about Game of Thrones Twitter again if we can PLEASE get rid of Pokemon Go Twitter.
