    "Not sure how this makes any sense. I have played Pokemon Go many times, it requires constant movement. How would this game transfer to a sitting game on a computer? Simply saying that the phone and PC are integrated, does not solve the problem of having to constantly walk to play the game, holding a laptop? "
