'Pokemon Go' will turn your smartphone into a Pokedex

Nintendo is planning to put Pokemon on your phone sometime in the next month. No, it's not porting over the classic games just yet; the company's launching a new alternate-reality game called "Pokemon Go."

Developed by Google spinoff Niantic, "Pokemon Go" is a free-to-download game for iOS and Android that requires you to wander around the real world looking for pokemon to catch. 

The game uses your phone's camera to project a pokemon model on the real world. One well-timed pokeball throw is enough to capture most pokemon; from there, the game lets you level up and evolve the pokemon you catch.

"Pokemon Go" also borrows some elements of territory control from Niantic's first game, "Ingress." "Pokemon Go" splits the player base into three different teams and lets them fight over control of real-world locations.

Nintendo is also planning to release a Fitbit-like gadget for around $35, though that won't launch until sometime after the main game. The device syncs up with your phone and is meant to let you play the game without walking around, looking at a screen the whole time.

For now, it looks like the game is limiting itself to the original 150 pokemon, but that might not last long. Two other new Pokemon games, "Pokemon Sun" and "Pokemon Moon," are set to launch in November this year with a whole new slate of possible pokemon to add.

Gamer surprises girlfriend with 'Super Mario Bros' proposal

"Geeks do it better!"

That's what Shane Birkinbine wrote in the caption for a video that captured his unique proposal to his girlfriend last week.

>> Read more trending stories  

In the video, Birkinbine's girlfriend, Pam Edwards, plays the legendary "Super Mario Bros." video game with encouragement from Birkinbine.

Before long, Edwards' Mario character approaches a series of brick blocks.

"What does that say," Birkinbine asks his girlfriend.

"Where?" she answers.

"The blocks," he answers. "It spells out your name."

Delighted, Edwards asks Birkinbine how her name appears in the game.

Birkinbine, a self-proclaimed master gamer, says he built the level on Super Mario Bros Maker.

As Edwards' character continues to navigate through the level, the message is spelled out in full: "Pam, will you marry me?"

"Yes, of course," she says while laughing.

"Alright, go finish (the game) now," he says after the positive reply.

Edwards and Birkinbine met on a year and eight months ago, USA Today reported.

"Pam bought me the game for the Nintendo Wii several months ago," Birkinbine told USA Today. "Being busy with life and working, I had not had a chance to create my own level. So, it came to me to make the very first level a marriage proposal. It just seemed to fit as we both enjoy Mario games. So, over the course of a week, I would work on it after I got home in the evenings when she was fast asleep."

If any other Mario-loving gamer wants to borrow Birkinbine's proposal idea or if anyone simply wants to play through the proposal level, the level code is 7A61-0000-0245-8DE8, Geekologie reported.

Police officer gives child his own Pokemon collection after collection was stolen

A Cleveland police officer has become a hero to a 9-year-old Ohio boy whose Pokemon collection was stolen.

Bryce Angelone had been collecting the cards for about three years and he said they meant a lot to him since he began trading with friends.

He had been walking to a friend's home last week when another child took his binder of cards out of his hands and ran away, WJW reported.

Bryce's mother called police to report it, who ended up finding the binder.

But the sad news was that some of Bryce's treasured cards were missing.

James Grotenrath, one of the officers who responded, went above the call of duty.

He went to his home and found his own Pokemon collection to give to Bryce.

Some of the cards in Bryce's collection are rare.

"It's a banned card of Pokemon and there's only about 10 of these in the world and I have one of them," Bryce told WJW.

"It's a priceless item, but it's better to see someone else smile, and in my book, like my partner says, it's just happy to see a citizen smile instead of always frowning upon us and looking the other way," Grotenrath said.

Police told WJW that the child who took the cards is a few years older than Bryce. He got a "good talking to," but they didn't file charges against him, WJW reported.
