Pokémon Go

Pokémon Go is a free-to-play game which is based in augmented reality and was developed by Nianty for iOS and Android devices. It was released on 6th July, 2016. In this game, you have to locate, capture, battle and train virtual creatures, called Pokémon. This game has been downloaded by more than 100 million people. Pokémon Go has changed the view of our society. For example: Before, parents didn’t want their kids to stay at home playing computer games. However, nowadays, they take fresh air and do some sport. Everybody plays: men and women, young and old, parents and sons… This game has improved our lifestyle and has got a lot of advantages, but it has got also disadvantages.

On the one hand, Pokémon Go has got a lot of advantages like parents and sons can walk together and they can have fun together hunting Pokémon and fighting between them. Moreover, it has reduced the obesity in the USA, because everybody walk in their cities in order to take more Pokémon and level up. Furthermore, people now know more about their city and its monuments due to it, because in each city there are “PokeStops” which are important monuments or buildings where you can take items, but the most interesting thing is that in each one there is a little description of it so people can pay attention to these important places in their city and learn about them.

On the other hand, Pokémon Go has got some problems as people don’t look around and there are a lot of accidents for example people who were driving their car or people who get lost in the middle of a park or a mountain searching Pokémon. Another problem is that this game can be use in order to win money by other companies, for example Mc Donald’s has said that he wants to pay Pokémon go in order to put Pokémon in their restaurants so as to have more customers. 

All in all, this game has changed our point of view. In my opinion, it has improved our lifestyle and our mind so I think it has been a very good invention. However, we have to pay attention to our environment and don’t get hypnotized by Pokémon.

Nowadays, it is a well-known fact that plastic is a very common material in our ordinary lives. This material is very useful, because it is very malleable, is cheap, it can stand warmth… However, this material pollutes a lot and it is difficult to recycle. So today, I am going about certain issues plastic has an impact on the Mediterranean Sea and about possible solutions to deal with this dangerous problem Let’s do it! Clean up the Mediterranean Coast!

This useful material pollutes a lot our seas in many different ways, for example, it makes our beaches dirtier and therefore the water is polluted if you want to swim. In addition, if the sea is polluted, so are fish, as in the case of turtles which eat plastic bags, because they think they are jellyfish and so they die.

Let’s do it! Cleaning up the Mediterranean Coast! is an organisation whose aim is to make everybody aware of this problem and also concerns everybody that we are all responsible of this issue and that we have to work all together in order to solve it. This group is formed by ten thousand volunteers and involves 15 countries. 

All in all, I think that we can use plastic, but we have to know that it is a double-edged sword and we have to take care of our planet. Furthermore, in my view Let’s do it! Cleaning up the Mediterranean Coast! is a very useful organisation that can correct our mistakes made in the past.
