And then causing other people to sit upon their high horse and tell people they’re “childish” or “geeks” for playing it. And these people might be getting their own way as I heard on the radio on Wednesday that Pokémon Go gameplay is down by 79%. A whopping 79%! I’ve been racking my brain to try and figure out why these people are so against Pokémon Go. I think I’ve…
