Isn't Apple late to the party? I thought the Pokemon Go craze died out after the developers changed some of the gameplay mechanics.
Late perhaps. The craze (as in thousands of people in every park) has died down, but there's still tens of millions playing - any other game maker would kill for that kind of usage. And despite various conspiracy theories that went around, they cut back some features that weren't working right, 100% of the time. Probably will return at some point.

This is a great merger between working out and playing games. I love the idea and can't wait to try it out.

Sorry, but at that point, I felt lost. I guess I'm not the target group anymore. Oh well, teenagers must have money to pay for Apple products these days...

Oh, do you think this will only be available for Apple Watch 2 users? :(
No, I mean that it would kill the phone's battery. I've never seen anything kill a phone's battery faster than Pokemon Go.

Not all Pokemon players are kids or teenagers. Some of us were quite young when the game originally released, so you know, nostalgia. I'm guessing you don't like kids stepping on your lawn? ;)
