There is a term among those who study journalism called Afghanistanism that means, roughly, the practice of concentrating on problems in distant parts of the world while ignoring controversial local issues. There also is a term among those who study news websites that focus on writing recency-rich made-for-Google headlines  called, “What time is the Superbowl?” 

“What Pokemon Go means” and its variant, “What does Pokemon Go mean?” is a mix of these two “news value” factors: Attempts to take something remote to most of the real world (Pokemon Go} and localize its impact in order to show up in a Google news search.
