Pokémon GO

Pokémon GO is a free-to-play location-based augmented reality mobile game developed by Niantic and published by The Pokémon Company as part of the Pokémon franchise. The game was released in selected countries in July 2016. In the game, players use a mobile device's GPS capability to locate, capture, battle, and train virtual creatures called Pokémon, who appear on the screen as if they were in the exact real-world location as the player. The game supports in-app purchases for additional in-game items.


The game Pokémon GO allows users to capture, battle, and train virtual creatures, called Pokémon, who appear on the user's screen as if they were in the exact real-world location as the player. The game is free-to-play, although it supports in-app purchases of additional gameplay items. Users can purchase items in the game with real-world currency. These items include Poké Balls, which are used to capture Pokémon; incense, which attracts Pokémon to the player; lucky eggs, which double the number of experience points earned for a set time; and lures, which attract Pokémon to a specific PokéStop for 30 minutes.


The player can use the touchscreen to move the character around the map. The player can also use the joystick to control the character. The player can tap on the Poké Ball to catch Pokémon. The player can also tap on the screen to use the Pokémon's moves.


In Pokémon GO, the graphics are pretty good. The game uses a combination of 2D and 3D graphics to create a realistic and immersive experience for the player.
