It is time for the first international Pokémon-hunting competition. Pokémon Go has become the most popular game in Poland which is why the country is planning to organize the first international contest related to the game.
The organizers say that the main purpose of the event is to demonstrate how new technologies change people's perceptions of their environment.
According to Radio Poland, no other apps worldwide have achieved such success in Poland as Nintendo's Pokémon Go.
"The number of app users exceeds even such giants as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat. The game breaks records in Poland," the contest's initiators say.
Pokémon Go is a free augmented reality mobile game where the picture displayed on the smartphone screen is projected onto real-world locations. The main aim of the game is to catch Pokémon.
The game, first released in Japan, the United States, Australia and New Zealand, is now available in more than 30 countries. It has become a worldwide hit and has already been blamed for a wave of crimes, traffic violations and complaints in cities around the globe.
