I, myself play it. As does my girlfriend. We play it together as well as with my 7yr old daughter and 3yr old son. Kids these days are glued to the couch, this game is something that entices not only the kids, but also the adults to get out of the house and walk around. Do I like Pokemon in general? Nope, never have never will. But the game as a stand alone entity is great. Look up the game Ingress. It is the exact same game, made by the exact some company. That game failed. They pitched it to Nintendo and developed a "gimick" to revitalize their company, and at the same time awaken the zombie couch sitters that are the youth of not only a single city, state or country. It has given the needed motivation to the masses to move and exercise.
Do some of the people playing need to focus on more productive things? Yes, but that is true for all hobbies. The way a lot of baby boomers see the world is, "If it is'nt making you or your family money it is a waste of time and energy."
Just my personal thoughts.
