“Pokémon Go” only launched a few days ago and it seems like everyone’s already talking about it. The augmented reality game went viral over the weekend and is now seemingly everywhere.
Here’s how Delawareans are responding.
Some were thrilled by it, finding PokeStops during dinner:

Or before class:
I can't wait to hear the tardy to class excuses
"Well you see professor… There was this rare Pokemon"

Or not playing at all and waiting for your brother to get back in the car:

Or while being self aware:
I made the mistake of downloading the Pokemon game bc now I'm addicted, and it's literally been 5 minutes since I've downloaded it ?

Or while being disappointed:
Jesus, Delaware is a Pokestop wasteland. Get your act together.

But the truth is, Pokémon isn’t just for children anymore. Adults seem to be addicted, too.-30-
