    Instagram user guacasaurus_mex is working on a VMU port of Pokemon Go for 2017.
    The VMU with its tiny 48x32 resolution lacks GPS and any real processing power. So a randomly-generated map will be used instead and a timing-based mini-game will be used to capture Pokemon instead of swipes to throw the Pokeballs.

    Good old Nokia's with batteries that lasted forever. An old school Nokia port would be great!
