You may hear the excuse, "Gotta catch 'em all," when you ask someone why they're on their phone.
"Pokemon Go" is a new app that allows users catch Pokemon in the real world.
The app uses GPS location to create Pokestops out of local landmarks and show where you can attempt to catch Pokemon.
Some in the Kansas City area have joined in on the fun.
"Pokemon Go" in the metro
The Roasterie introduced a new drink this week - the Shiny Chaimander. The cafe realized its Brookside and Southwest Boulevard locations are designated as Pokemon "gyms" in the game.
According to a news release from The Roasterie, the Shiny Chaimander will be available for a limited time at the cafes in Brookside, Leawood and off 27th and Southwest Boulevard.
Hawg Jaw Que & Brew in Riverside offered all "Pokemon Go" players a special offer Wednesday and Thursday.

Remember to be safe
While the game may be fun, it's important to be safe. Local police departments and other organizations remind players you have to be aware and safe while they search for Pokemon.
