WILKES-BARRE, Pa., July 14, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Snap a screenshot of a Pokemon you caught on vacation and you could win a fun Pokemon prize from Sundance Vacations!
By now, you've surely heard about the Pokemon Go craze sweeping the nation.
It's the fun new game for smartphones that allows players to travel around the real world and collect virtual Pokemon — which means Pocket Monsters — along the way. The idea is to collect them all by capturing, training and evolving them as you quest to find them all.
When a Pokemon trainer comes across a wild Pokemon, they can toss Pokeballs at it in order to try and capture the virtual monsters. The game automatically keeps track of where you which ones you have captured too. Trainers can also battle with other players, compare which Pokemon they've caught and more!
Sundance Vacations thought it would be fun to have a little contest using the new viral game that will allow Pokemon fans to win some pretty cool Pokemon prizes.
