What? You’ve got to be kidding me! Pokémon playing Poker?  Since when? Looks like Bulbasaur has got pretty good hands, eh? Is he trying to catch a glimpse of Pikachu’s cards? Never mind!
Oh look at that evil Meowth’s monotonous face, guess he’s losing.
Snorlax seems confident as usual! Nothing surprising there!
It’s difficult for me to conclude who’s going to win the pot. Looks like the Pokémon’s’ poker face game is strong.

With the new Pokémon GO app, it has become more fun and interesting to play and capture Pokémon. Had it ever occurred to you that there could be perceivable similarities between Pokémon Go and Online Poker sites, such as Pokabunga.com? No, right? It did to us!

Here are some we could think of:-

  1. Experience the real world around you

Pokémon Go allows you to travel between the real world and the virtual world of Pokémon and discover Pokémon in a whole new world of your own. In the same manner, Online Poker sites bring the best of the real world into your mobile screens or laptops and give you the sense of virtual reality.

  1. Expand as you play

Pokémon Go grants you to find and catch more than a hundred species of Pokémon as you explore your surroundings. Online Poker sites too have a variety of Poker games through which you can learn and expand your knowledge of Poker while playing.

  1. Aim to Capture

When you encounter a Pokémon, you take aim on your Smartphone’s touch screen and throw the Poke ball to catch it before it runs away. While playing poker too, we aim to capture the pot and try our best preventing the others to get away with it.

  1. Collect items when you need

In Pokémon Go, Poke stops are located at interesting places where we can collect more Poke balls and other items. The same goes for Poker as well. When we need extra chips, we go to the Chips counter and buy them to continue the game.

  1. Raise your Level

Catching Pokémon is not an amateur’s task. One needs to be very vigilant while capturing them or else they might run away. We keep exploring and encountering Pokémon to raise our level. In Online Poker Sites, we play to win; but luck doesn’t favour us all the time. We explore the best ways by acting on our mistakes and encountering them to raise ourselves a level of confidence.

  1. Join a Team and Battle

In Pokémon Go, after collecting an ample amount of Pokémon, you’ll need to work together with other members of your team to build up a strong defense in order to fight battles. Online Poker sites are no different in this case, where the players team up a few times and fight the Poker War among themselves to win the pot.

So that’s how it goes. Poker and Pokémon Go don’t look like polar opposites now, do they? Enough talk now, let the Pokémon get back to their game, and tell us which Pokémon you think would come out on top at the end in the comments section below.
