It's Michelle Obama's way of getting kids to go play outside
Ahhhh, that sweet, sweet life as a lame-duck president. People seem to think that since the Obamas clearly have nothing else going on, they decided to dream up Pokémon Go as one final push to electrify Michelle's Let's Move! campaign. After noticing how quickly it's mobilized an otherwise sedentary population of young people, quite a few are speculating that this was all just a brilliantly executed stunt to get kids exercising outside. Which, well, you know... there are worse things.
