    "Travel and catch Pokemon in real-life"

    THE VERDICT

    A dream-team collaboration between Google Maps, Niantec, and Nintendo brings the extremely popular Pokemon franchise to your iOS and Android devices. Pokemon GO will have you popping out your cell phone to track and catch Pokemon favorites like Onyx, Mankey, Eevee, and more in the real world. You can also join one of three teams in your quest to capture them all: Valor, Mystic, or Instinct, as you battle your way through your city or hometown to catch and battle Pokemon. You can also take photos of Pokemon with real-world backgrounds and upload them so the whole world can see.

    THE PROS

    Pokemon GO brings truly unique and already popular gameplay that you’ll definitely enjoy, implementing the use of your phone, GPS, and your Maps app all at the same time. Animations run quite smoothly, and this game is incredibly easy to pick-up and play. You’ll also run into people playing Pokemon GO.

    THE CONS

    This game, while already immensely popular in the span of just a few days is still littered with bugs and glitches, especially frequent crashing and incorrect item gathering.

    Description

    Pokémon GO has now introduced social and trading features that allow Trainers to connect with each other by adding friends, sending Gifts, and participating in a new Friendship level system that unlocks bonuses. Trainers can now trade Pokémon with other Trainers nearby, earning a Candy Bonus for the Pokémon received.

    Join Trainers across the globe who are discovering Pokémon as they explore the world around them. Pokémon GO is the global gaming sensation that has been downloaded over 800 million times and named "Best Mobile Game" by The Game Developers Choice Awards and "Best App of the Year" by TechCrunch.

    Venusaur, Charizard, Blastoise, Pikachu, and many other Pokémon have been discovered!
    Pokémon are out there, and you need to find them. As you walk around a neighborhood, your smartphone will vibrate when there’s a Pokémon nearby. Take aim and throw a Poké Ball… You’ll have to stay alert, or it might get away!

    Search far and wide for Pokémon and items
    Certain Pokémon appear near their native environment—look for Water-type Pokémon by lakes and oceans. Visit PokéStops and Gyms—found at interesting places like museums, art installations, historical markers, and monuments—to stock up on Poké Balls and helpful items.

    Catching, hatching, evolving, and more
    As you level up, you’ll be able to catch more-powerful Pokémon to complete your Pokédex. You can add to your collection by hatching Pokémon Eggs based on the distances you walk. Help your Pokémon evolve by catching many of the same kind. Choose a Buddy Pokémon to walk with and earn Candy that will help you make your Pokémon stronger.

    Compete in epic Gym battles
    You’ll join one of three teams and battle for the ownership of Gyms with your Pokémon at your side. As your Charmander evolves to Charmeleon and then Charizard, you can battle together to defeat a Gym and assign your Pokémon to defend it against all comers.

    Team up to defeat powerful Raid Bosses
    A Raid Battle is a cooperative gameplay experience that encourages you to work with up to 20 other Trainers to defeat an extremely powerful Pokémon known as the Raid Boss. If you succeed in defeating it in battle, you’ll have the chance to catch an extra powerful Pokémon of your own!

    It’s time to get moving—your real-life adventures await!
