Catch Pokemon for Real with Pokemon GO

Pokemon GO is an upcoming Pokemon game being developed exclusively for the iOS and Android devices by Niantic in which players can catch Pokemon by visiting real world locations and then use them in battle against friends.

In the past, the Pokémon video game series has used real world locations like the Hokkaido and Kanto regions of Japan, as well as New York and Paris, as inspiration for its fantasy settings. In Pokémon GO, players will be able to catch, trade, and battle in the real world by utilizing location information. Pokémon GO’s gameplay experience goes beyond what appears on screen as players explore their neighborhoods, communities and the world they live in to discover Pokémon alongside friends and other players.

Pokemon GO isn’t just a side-project by The Pokemon Company either; as Junichi Masuda, game director of the Pokémon video game series at GAME FREAK, will also be contributing to the project.

Players will be able to enhance their Pokémon GO experience even when they are looking away from their smartphones by using a unique device called Pokémon GO Plus.  By pressing a button on the device simple in-game actions like catching a Pokémon can be performed. This particular device, which has been developed and manufactured by Nintendo, it will connect to smartphones via Bluetooth and by flashing and vibrating, will notify players about events like the appearance of a Pokémon nearby.
