Info: Pokemon Go is an AR MMO developed by Niantic. In the game, players around the globe will explore their surroundings to find and catch wild Pok¨¦mon hiding in our midst. Some wild Pok¨¦mon appear only in their native environments; for example, Water-type Pok¨¦mon may only appear near lakes and oceans. As players explore the world around them, their phones will vibrate to let them know a Pok¨¦mon is nearby. Once they have encountered a Pok¨¦mon, it can be caught by using the phone¡¯s touch screen to throw a Pok¨¦ Ball. .

Pok¨¦ Balls and other special items can be found at Pok¨¦Stops located at interesting places such as public art installations, historical markers and monuments.

As players progress through Pok¨¦mon GO, their Trainer level will increase, enabling them to capture more-powerful Pok¨¦mon and gain access to more items. Some Pok¨¦mon can be evolved if the same species is caught on multiple occasions. Pok¨¦mon Eggs, which can be found at Pok¨¦Stops, will hatch after players walk a certain distance. Players will be able to impress their friends by unlocking achievement medals that are earned by completing a variety of challenges.

During gameplay, Pok¨¦mon GO players will be encouraged to join one of three teams and engage in Gym battles with other teams. Once they have joined a team, players will have the ability to assign their Pok¨¦mon to empty Gyms. Like Pok¨¦Stops, Gyms can be found at real locations in the world, and because only one Pok¨¦mon per player can be placed at a given Gym, team members will need to work together to build a strong defense. A Gym claimed by one team can be challenged by the other two teams.

With real-life surroundings providing a backdrop for encounters with wild Pok¨¦mon, this unique Pok¨¦mon game represents the next generation of Niantic¡¯s ¡°Real World¡± gaming platform, which combines mobile location technology and Augmented Reality to create a gaming experience that motivates players to go outside and explore the world around them.
