Pokémon Go is on the move in Kansas City

Ever since Pokémon Go was launched in early July of this year, players have been fanatical about chasing down and capturing these virtual “pocket monsters”. In the U.S. alone, more than 30 million people have been playing the game every month, on their iPhones and Android smartphones.

Here, in Kansas City, players had a unique opportunity to find elusive Pokémon. At 11 p.m. on Sunday, July 10, about 200 people gathered at the Country Club Plaza in Kansas City. The stores had closed long before this, so it became populated only with Pokémon trainers” (that’s the preferred name of a player). They went on a late-night hunt, stalking the Pokémon until 2 in the morning.

We heard that Squirtle was captured in the Plaza’s fountain and Nidoran was found hanging out by The North Face store.

This Pokémon Go craze has created a fascinating phenomenon around Kansas City, and the whole country. People are getting out and walking! Parents are playing the game with their kids, and adults are meeting new friends who share their passion for Pokémon. Is this what Niantic Labs had in mind when it developed the game?

It’s a fun way to get outside and explore your community, but please, be careful. Just like those people who text while they walk, staying focused on your smartphone’s screen instead of the people and traffic around you can be a dangerous distraction.

During the late-night Pokémon Go adventure at the Country Club Plaza, a group of players started to walk right into traffic, but were stopped when nearby pedestrians called out to them.

The Kansas Highway Patrol has had to issued a warning (on Twitter): “No #PokémonGO when driving.”

Everyone here at Johnson County Siding & Windows wants you to enjoy the fun that Pokémon Go provides, but please be careful!

"The whole team was awesome. Justin was super helpful in helping us pick windows and answered all our questions. We had the whole house done and the installation crew were professional and hardworking. We noticed a difference right away with how quiet the windows made the house. We also noticed that the house has a more even temperature between levels. I am excited to go into winter now with a great set of windows that are so easy to use and with quality installation that will last.”

"It was a most pleasant experience to work with Johnson County Siding and Windows for the replacement of a few windows in our home. Bill Christie came and gave us a price. No glib, "well this is what it cost, but we can do it for this if you pay cash right now ..., but, no, wait, we can do this, if you hurry ... " He sold his product, and company, with pride and experience. The team to install, lead by Justin, arrived early on the appointed day. They went right to work and completed the task in due order, answering any questions we could have, and explaining the total function of the system. They cleaned up after themselves, and left the windows shining! What a day! Thank you Bill, Justin, William and Brian!”
