Pokémon Go Craze Hits Montgomery County Parks and Local Businesses (VIDEO & PHOTOS)

If you’ve seen people glued to their phones recently, instead of texting or scrolling through Twitter, they’re most likely searching for Pokémon, the popular cartoon characters that debuted in the 90s.

The latest viral mobile game craze, “Pokémon Go,” allows players to see characters pop into existence on their screens next to real-world objects. Players are tasked with capturing Pokémon and if they’re skilled enough can join a team.

In Montgomery County, the Pokémon creatures have been popping up in parks, local business and even Gaithersburg City Hall. According to Montgomery Parks Spokesperson Melissa Chotiner, Brookside Gardens and Nature Centers have been popular destinations for kids playing the game. MyMCMedia’s Maureen Chowdhury reports.
