Everyone's talking about Pokémon Go, the crazy popular new game that launched over the weekend. Unfortunately, it's only available on Android and iOS, and we're not exactly confident that it will ever show up on Windows 10. About 35,000 people have already signed a petition to bring Pokémon Go to our favorite platform, but while we wait for that to happen, let's look at some of the reactions from Windows Phone users missing out on Pokémon Go.
Some Windows Phone users are really sad seeing all their friends get excited about Pokémon Go while the Windows app is nowhere to be seen.

We expected to see a crying Michael Jordan tweet, but the crying Pikachu seems more appropriate. Do you need a tissue?
But some people get creative
Others make the best of a bad situation. No Windows Phone app? You can get real Pokémon toys or even transform your Windows Phone Start Screen into a Pokémon.
And this one goes old school
If all else fails, you can grab a Game Boy on Amazon and play the original game!

The game is about catching Pokémon, battling at gyms, and evolving your creatures while exploring the real world. Your virtual avatar moves when you move. You can explore your neighborhood with friends, and possibly meet new ones at historical landmarks disguised as PokéStops where players can find special items.
Pokémon come in variety of types, shapes, and sizes. Each area on the map has a specific Pokémon type, and some creatures are more difficult to find than others. For example, you can head to local lakes, ponds, or beaches to find water-type Pokémon.
Pokémon Go sure looks fun, but unfortunately all the Windows Phone users can't play it yet. How do you feel about missing out on Pokemon Go? Let us know in the comments!
