Users of the new popular mobile app walk around in the real world and compete to catch Pokemon.

The game, which quickly became a viral sensation, uses cellphone cameras and GPS systems to highlight where creatures, battle gyms and "PokeStops" are located on a map. When the Pokemon are close enough to be captured, a digital creature shows up on the camera screen.

The game has also taken off on Capitol Hill.

Several lawmakers and staffers have shared their progress in the game on social media, and others have even used the game's popularity to focus attention on legislative issues.
