The game's GPS tagging ensures that players have to travel from place to place to find a Pokemon. This is a welcome change from the usual games we have seen as it forces the users to get off their seats and walk to find a Pikachu or a Charmander. 

The TV series centred around a little kid named Ash Ketchum from Pallet town who starts his Pokemon journey with a Pikachu and travels from city to city in search of Pokemons. His ultimate goal is to become the best Pokemon trainer in the world. Pokemon GO now allows users to live that experience by using their phones to catch Pokemon by travelling around the world and also win badges in gym battles. 

The football world has also got hooked to this addictive game with some notable clubs and players posting Pokemon GO related posts on social media. So here are some of the best Pokemon GO reactions from the world of football.
