A Beginners Guide to Pokemon Go
1. Choosing a Nickname
When you open the game for the first time, or if you are signed out, you will be prompted to sign up for an account using either a Gmail account or a Pokemon Trainer Club. After you set up your account you can use the same credentials to login back in to the account. When you have completed that you will be greeted by Professor Willow who will give you the standard Pokemon greeting and will ask you your name. Be aware that this name will be your displayed name in game and does get used frequently. So pick a good one! The nicknames are similar to emails or usernames, in that yours has to be unique to you. The nickname pool is growing smaller and smaller so most likely you will need to add some numbers after your name.

The movie, comic, video game, and anime fans of tomorrow won’t believe any of that, because they’ll only know comic cons for what they’ve become in the last couple of years—a cultural phenomenon that has risen far above the stereotypes of “nerdy” or “geeky”.

So many little tidbits cross my desk(top) in any given week, that it is almost impossible not to miss some. I used to write this feature on a political website, until I realized that I hated writing about politics, and geeky stuff was way more fun, without the consequence of pissing people off. Well, that’s probably not true. So, the Friday Five will be a regular feature about things happening in the pop culture, science and technology world. Enjoy my little curations.
