It must be 1996 again, because the Pokémon craze is back. It's been less than a week since Pokémon Go's release, and there are more memes, weird news, and accidental discoveries (like the game leading people to strip clubs and churches, for instance) than you can throw a Pokéball at. The game is still in its stages of infancy, and Niantic and Nintendo have plans to add more features to the app to keep players hooked. So keep up with all the latest updates and take a look back on all the stories that developed along the way, starting from two years ago. Remember when we all thought Pokémon Go was nothing but a big April Fools' joke from Google Maps?
