Mobile gaming is now becoming a new found love for most of the people across the world. To add more to this, there is a new sensation which have been released few days back, the ‘Pokémon Go’. This is a phenomenal success with breaking all records set by any mobile game ever. It is by far the most loved game for mobile, all owing to people’s old love for Pokémon’s. Pokémon emerged from the old animated series called, Pokémon; which featured creatures with distinct abilities; the series featured trainers whose job was to catch and train their Pokémon’s.
The game has been modelled much after the series, along with some innovation to make the game more interesting to play and close to reality. The most important technological thing innovated in this game is ‘Augmented Reality’. This new technology has made the game more popular, as it makes the game close to reality.
How to Get Started?
The game is available for Android and iOS only, officially though. Thus you need to have any one of the two types of device, however in case you do not owe any such device, you can play this game on your PC using Android emulator called ‘Nox App Player’; which will be illustrated in the later section of this tutorial.
This is an online game so make sure to have a working internet connection, also make sure your device has a GPS device integrated, as it will continuously take your GPS coordinates to locate you and present different Pokémon’s, pokestops and gyms.
About The Game
Pokémon go have several Pokémon’s, starting from Pidgey and rattata to Pikachu and charmander; you gotcha catch them all. You have to freely roam around the city to find and catch Pokémon’s. It is quite unsure by now too, to predict the presence of Pokémon’s in any area; however try exploring new areas, as there is more probability of find new and more Pokémon’s.
Well, the game is not all about just catching the Pokémon’s, you can also evolve them and let them fight for you. Evolving Pokémon’s is all depending on how much same type of Pokemons you have cached. As catching a Pokemons will get balls, which are specific to a Pokémon’s. These balls are key to evolution of a Pokemons, and will be required in specified amount to get your Pokemons to the next level.
Gym are place where combat occurs between Pokémon’s. Unlike the animated series, where you need to fight the Pokémon’s to catch them, here in this game you only have to throw balls at the Pokémon’s to catch them. The combat mode is confined to the gym only, which was quite disappointing.
