Pokemon Go

No matter how hard we try, we can't escape Pokémon Go. Instead of running away, we've decided to embrace it. After all, despite its many dangers, it does seem like it's a great tool for people to make friends, score dates and get outdoors. Where's the harm in that, right? If you still can't get on board the Poké-train, you might be able to embrace some potential mashups. What do we mean by that? Imagine a world where you run around as Harry Potter instead. A petition to mash HP with Pokémon Go, thus creating a Harry Potter version of the game, is currently a real thing. If you're into Hufflepuff more than Jigglypuff, we strongly suggest you sign it.

The description of the game sounds like a really good time. "The possibilities are endless. In a Harry Potter augmented reality game, you could cast spells in real life. Accio Firebolt! And have a wizard duel with your friends, expelliarmus could disable their app for a few seconds! Who is your second?" That's not all. "With Harry Potter Go, you could search for the seven Horcruxes, and then for swords, and basilisk fangs to destroy them." Say no more. 

That got us thinking. What if Pokémon Go was the start of a gaming trend? Just like everyone and their dog has their own emoji these days, will there soon be different versions (like Harry Potter Go, for example) of Pokémon Go? If so, we've rounded up a list of mashups that need to be a thing (just in case).

1. Clueless Go. This Pokémon Go mashup would consist of running around different malls collecting items that belong in Cher's closet. Bonus points if you can find her white collarless shirt from Fred Segal. You'll be able to play as different Clueless characters which means, battling Tai for Josh if you choose to be Cher.

2. McDonald's Go. All you would have to do is run around catching every menu item in the store. Users would have virtual eating battles, and McDonald's PlayPlace's would serve as gyms.

3. Walking Dead Go. Everyone already looks like the undead, walking around like a zombie with a cell phone. This version shouldn't be too much of a stretch.

4. Game of Thrones Go. Users can get a mean workout stomping around good old King's Landing, amiright?

5. Taylor Swift's Squad Go. Obviously, that name is a mouthful, but you get the idea. Run around the world catching members of her squad. Battle ex-boyfriends and haters. Live your best life.
