The highly awaited mobile game is finally here, Pokemon GO is now rolling out to Android and iOS users in the US, Australia, and select other countries. This could, of course, change to worldwide by the time you read this. So do check in Play Store and iTunes for the availability of the Pokemon GO in your region.
The Pokemon GO allows users to collect, train, and battle Pokémon characters in the real world. Discover and capture the Pokémon all around you—so get your shoes on, step outside, and explore the world. You’ll join one of three teams and battle for the prestige and ownership of Gyms with your Pokémon at your side.
Pokémon are out there, and you need to find them. As you walk around a neighborhood, your smartphone will vibrate when there’s a Pokémon nearby. Take aim and throw a Poke Ball… You’ll have to stay alert, or it might get away! Users will get notifications to launch the app when a Pokémon is nearby.
