Is Rihanna joinning the Pokemon Go Trend
Pokémon Go has been capturing the attention of gamers, parents, and journalists alike. It seems like everyday, the gaming app is making headlines for one reason or another.
Just when we thought the excitement of Pokémon Go had reached an all time high, a photo surfaced of Rihanna wearing a sport ensemble and matching bag, which both appeared to be Pokémon inspired.
Twitter user, @buildacastle tweeted a message stating that Rihanna looked like a Pokémon gym leader. As you would imagine, Twitter was filled with retweets and humorous annotations. Soon after, Green Glasses (Tumblr) recreated the photo featuring the singer as a fiery animated avatar, equipped with an Eevee in her bag and an Umbreon by her side.
Clearly, any news about the island beauty travels quickly.
The cleverly crafted post prompted fans to scour the web and search: is RiRi joining the Pokémon Go craze? Could our favorite Caribbean bombshell really be joining the growing list of celebrities who've been drawn into the fanfare of augmented reality?
The thought alone is enough to excite both gamers and fans into a frenzy. It isn't hard to imagine the songstress belting a rendition of 'Man Down' after battling and defeating a few Pokémon trainers. I can see the @badgalriri Instagram videos now, equipped with a smile, raised hands, and her often imitated exotic accent. Hopefully, the lucky losers would have managed to snag a few screen shots. Even better, gaming developers should create badges for these rare moments. Such amazing gaming encounters wouldn't be complete without collecting evidence for bragging rights.
