While surfing on your social network sites such as Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, you must have seen the ad pop up of the game, Pokémon Go. If you’re still wondering what they are up to, here is all you need to know.
Pokémon Go has taken the online gaming community to a whole new, exciting level. It’s not just some ordinary Smartphone game but has proven to be a real game changer after just a few weeks of its launch.
This game was created by Niantic, a group that was once under Google but now operates as a separate entity, in collaboration with Google, GAME FREAK, Nintendo and more companies. It utilizes the service of Google maps and places both you and Pokémon in a real location by guiding you through your own phone.
It sounds really technical but the basics of playing Pokémon Go are fairly simple. All you need to do is to sign up and select a name for yourself, and you are then provided with a few essentials to capture and take care of Pokémon.
More exciting is the fact that in Pokémon Go, players will be able to hunt, trade and battle in the real world by using GPS location service on their phones. You will witness that each location has a monster type associated with it, appearing on your screen.
For instance, Water-type Pokémon would be found near lakes, rivers, etc. while Pokémon stops will be situated near landmarks.
Pokémon Go has helped to improve people’s social life because, in order to experience all the amazing features of this game, you have to move around. People that live a mundane lifestyle and spend many hours in front of screens playing games and not moving an inch are silently encouraged to go out, walk and initiate a real social life other than the ones they have on the social media.
Although there have been a lot of issues surrounding Pokémon Go ever since its launch, the game has still revolutionized the gaming community and managed to win the hearts of all Pokémon fans all over again.
