Pikachu can help you zap away cavities
Want a Snorlax to help you brush your teeth? Pokémon Smile thinks so. Announced today, the new app is designed to help kids (and some adults, lemme tell you!) maintain their chompers every day, using augmented reality to portray Pokémon hopping around their environment as they brush.
Optimal brushing will let players catch more and more Pokémon, who are depicted on the phone screen, climb on shoulders, and more.
It seems like a simple augmented reality idea, but it could be a fun way to help teach dental hygiene with the youngest of us. Pokémon Smile launches today for free, so there’s nothing to lose except your gums.
