Pokemon GO Walkthrough and Guide


Pokemon GO

Pokemon GO is one of the latest Pokemon Games to be released for fans across the world to play - technically the final game of the Sixth Generation, and one of the first Pokemon Games to officially be released for mobile phones - and it continues to take the world over by storm with millions of fans playing all across the globe. The game was created and developed by Niantic Labs and launched worldwide in July 2016, with the Second Generation being added in February 2017, available for free download for all iOS and Android users (through The App Store or Google Play). Like most downloadable games and apps for mobile phones, Pokemon GO also includes a number of in-game micro-Purchase options.

Pokemon GO is an augmented-reality based game, meaning a view of the physical, real-world environment is augmented (aka supplemented) by elements of sound and graphics by computer generated sensory. In layman's terms, Pokemon GO is the very first Pokemon Game to mix both real world aspects with elements from the graphical, fantasy world of Pokemon.

The game uses this technology by incorporating real world maps in its concept, where certain Pokemon live in different geographical areas: Water Pokemon live near real world lakes and rivers, Rock and Ground Type Pokemon live in rocky and desert environments, and so on. (But no type of Pokemon is limited to any one given area; any Pokemon can spawn in any location at any given time.) Players can then capture, battle, and train these virtual Pokemon that are taking over our real world. Players can even buy a device called the Pokemon GO Plus that notifies them when they are near a certain Pokemon in the real world, making Finding Pokemon less of a hassle. Pokemon GO is also compatible on Apple Watches.
