The game opens a new world of gaming for all those tired of standard Android and iOS games. Pok?mon Go opens the door to a new reality where you can be a part of a new world created personally for you! That’s the first mobile project that allows you to search and collect the Pok?mon species in real surroundings!
Gameplay + video
The only thing you should do is stand on your feet and go out into the street in search of your Pok?mon creatures. You’ll be able to explore the places you live in and your habitual surroundings. While you get around the streets and park lanes your device vibrates as soon as you get close to the Pok?mon you need to capture. When you finally find your Pok?mon, just aim your touchscreen on it and catch it with a Pok? Ball. But it’s not that easy as it seems cause it can simply run away. After you catch your Pok?mon you can train it and customize it the way you wish. You can use a live camera to capture a moment you find your Pok?mon and share it with your friends!
You can also collect Pok? Balls, Pok?mon Eggs and useful stuff around famous public places and monuments. While you gain levels you get closer to powerful Great Balls and better skills helpful in catching Pok?mon.
At a certain moment of playing you’ll get a chance to join one of the teams and open Gyms where you’ll be able to work together with your team in order to create the most powerful defense. When one of the rival teams claims a Gym you’ll get a chance to challenge it an start a battle, that’s great fun.
How does it happen? Firstly, you choose your Pok?mon. Every Pok?mon can attack twice. If you win the battle, you reduce Gym’s Prestige. When you lose, you drop your Gym’s prestige to zero and lose control of it. But you can also defend it with a Pok?mon.
The prestige of your Gym can be increased in fighting with the defending Pok?mon. Even if you battle with your team mates you increase your Gym’s prestige by gaining points and getting to a higher level.
There’s also a wide choice of challenges that you can complete and unlock achievements and prizes.
Search for your Pokemon in the real world.
