Pokémon Go Is Everywhere — Is There A Real Estate Angle?

Real estate listing descriptions can be a fascinating reflection of regional character and culture. Idaho loves its soaker tubs, while Alaskans can’t get enough Southern exposure.

The latest trend taps into a quirky cultural phenomenon that has resurfaced since its beginnings in the late ’90s and early 2000s — Pokémon.

Pokémon is a Japanese anime cartoon that debuted in 1997, and took us into the magical world of Ash Ketchum, a young boy who wanted to be the greatest Pokémon trainer of them all.

From there, the brand expanded into apparel, card and video games, books and even the silver screen. For those new to the game, Pokémon are fictional creatures that humans (aka Pokémon trainers) catch and then prepare for battle.

The little monsters have unique names such as Charmander, Squirtle and, of course, Pikachu — the game’s brand ambassador — and come with their own set of strengths and traits. But you don’t need to know that to enjoy the game. In fact, most people don’t.

The Pokémon craze fizzled a bit when millennials started to grow up and move on to other obsessions — such as Facebook, selfies and twerking.

But, over the past week, Pokémon resurfaced with a new game, Pokémon Go, and claimed the hearts of millennials and others alike, who were in need of some nostalgia after a hard week.

Pokémon Go, available on Android and iOS, brings the world of Pokémon to life with augmented reality and challenges players to travel around their neighborhoods and cities to catch Pokémon and battle other trainers at Pokémon gyms — there are more than five in my Oklahoma City neighborhood alone.

Pokéstops — where users can collect free (virtual) items that power their Pokémon — along with actual buildings designated as “gyms” are high-traffic areas within the game and get players out of the house walking around in the real world. Pokémon Go surpassed Whatsapp this week in average number of engaged minutes per day.
