Description

Join Trainers across the globe who are discovering Pokémon as they explore the world around them. The newest update to Pokémon GO, the global gaming sensation that has been downloaded over 750 million times and named “Best Mobile Game” by The Game Developers Choice Awards and “Best App of the Year” by TechCrunch, introduced a dynamic weather system that recognizes real-world weather, impacting the gameplay experience in a variety of ways, from changing the Pokémon encountered to increasing their effectiveness in combat.

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!

Editors' Notes

Once again, the world’s gone crazy for Pokémon. This time around, the lovable pocket monsters have invaded our parks, roads, even homes. We can't stop running around the neighborhood collecting items—and capturing 3D monsters with the futuristic augmented reality makes it feel like they're actually there. Becoming a real-life Pokémon Trainer is as cool as it sounds, but the hook here—as always—is trying to catch ’em all.

A Non-Fan Who Fell In Love this Game

~DalekGirl

I never was a fan of Pokémon. I guess I was the next generation up from the anime and game craze. Even when the Pokémon Go craze hit, I avoided it partly due to that I didn’t care for Pokémon. Partly because I used to frequently play an old location-based collecting game called Gowalla and thought I’d be too hooked. And partly because I hate hype.

Then about a month after its release my close friend group were meeting up for a Pokémon hunting day. I didn’t want to not join them as one of my friends was going back overseas soon after. So I decided to install the game just so I wouldn’t feel left out or have nothing to do.

Well it’s over a year later. Many people have dropped off who were part of the craze. And here’s me. The non-Pokémon fan still playing on a daily basis. As are my group of friends. I’m still not a big Pokémon fan. But I love Pokémon Go. It’s had it’s ups and downs, but more ups than downs. I love going out with my friends and hunting or more recently raiding. Or just open up the game when I’m on a walk by myself. I even roped my husband into playing. And like full Pokémon fans I now have my favourites too. <3

Im back again!

Benj-08

I started playing when it first came out. And I loved it. As an avid fan of Pokemon I was so excited about this game.. I was one of those people who used to drive around and stop by places just to catch pokemon. I experienced running within a crowd of people trying to catch some rare pokemons out in the street. But then I suddenly lost interest probably after 6 months as it became repetitive. The game became boring. I think people lost interest because the updates and the release of new gen pokemons took forever to happen. But then when I found out that they released gen 2 pokemons my interest came back and up until now i am still playing. All my friends lost interest but im back! I hope that the makers of the game will be able to release gen 3 and 4 soon..
