It's official: Pokémon GO has become a global phenomenon. Praised for its augmented reality and interactive experience with Google technology that encourages gamers to get out of the house, it's already the most downloaded mobile game in history (it's even on more Androids than Tinder). Tapping into both younger markets and millennials who are thrilled at the chance to relive their childhoods, it's no surprise that the game made $14 million in its first week alone (thanks to in-app purchases). Even celebrities are obsessed; Justin Bieber was spotted playing in Central Park, where, days earlier, a horde of hundreds were seen stampeding in an effort to catch a Vaporeon.

Here, model Ewa Wladymiruk shares her personal diary playing the game in New York City.

"This is my character in Pokémon GO!"

"Me and my favorite Pokémon, Jigglypuff."

"Jigglypuff!"

"My Pokédex contains 112 Pokémon."

"Me playing Pokémon in the Flatiron District."

"Pokémon joining me and my friends for lunch."

"My friend Martyna when Abra appeared on her shoulder."

"My friend Martyna has the greatest foot tattoo on earth. This Sparrow seemed to think so too!"

"An everyday NYC view. Poor Magikarp!"

"Every day before playing in Central Park, I always feed the raccoons."

"I found a Doduo outside the V Magazine office!"

"NYC is the best place to play Pokémon—not only you can catch them all, but look at the view!"

"Style icon(s)."

"Nighttime hunting (1 a.m.) with Martyna and Seel."

"It’s 2 a.m. but people are still catching Pokémon!"

"Casually sitting in Central Park at 3 a.m. when Meowth appears."

"This is my real life Pokémon, Indie Raye!"
