A part of the Pokémon series, the game is the outcome of a partnership between Niantic, Nintendo, and The Pokémon Company. The title is still a global gaming sensation that has been downloaded for more than one billion times.
Named ‘Best Mobile Game’ by The Game Developers Choice Awards and ‘Best App of the Year’ by TechCrunch, Pokémon GO is an immersing title that has everyone hocked.
Pokémon GO – An Immersive Experience
To enter the universe of the game, players have to join Trainers all over the world in order to discover Pokémon as they walk around the city and explore every corner of it. Players must catch as much Pokémon as they can, so they can complete their Pokédex.
Make a journey together with Buddy Pokémon to help make the figurines stronger and receive more rewards, battle in epic Gym fights, and team up with other players, named Trainers, to catch powerful Pokémon during Raid Battles. Recently, the world of Pokémon GO has been invaded by Team GO Rocket. Players must battle with Team GO Rocket Grunts while restoring PokéStops and release Pokémon.
The game is free to download and play, but it also offers in-game purchases, which can be disabled in the device’s settings. An important mention would be that Pokémon GO is optimized for smartphones, and not for tablets or PC.
Compatible with Android devices that have 2GB of RAM or more memory available, the game only runs on Android versions 4.4 to 7.0. To play the game, players must own a device with GPS capacities, and smartphones connected to a Wi-Fi network. The title’s developers recommend players to enjoy it while connected to a network so they can get the accurate location information.
