Cambridge residents David Tulis and Jose Negon tackle Pokemon-catching strategies in Cambridge Common and Harvard Square.

CCTV member Jose Negron and citizen journalist David Tulis spend a beautiful summer day visiting the landmarks around Cambridge Common and Harvard Square playing the new viral game, Pokemon Go.
