What is Pokemon Go! and why are people getting crazy over this!
This extremely popular & trending game Pokemon Go, has a long history & fascinating history which was recently launched on 6th of July, 2016.
What is Pokémon Go and why is it everywhere?
Pokémon abbreviated from as pocket monster was once the cartoon I used to watch on cartoon network as a kid and loved to play Pokémon cards, though this was almost 17 years back.
But! What the hell is Pokémon Go??? This was the question I used to ask myself from last few days when I watched videos of people wandering around, with their heads down, holding their mobile (more than usual) and screaming “here it is”… playing Pokémon Go.
. This game is so addictive that it broke all previous records.
Basically Pokemon Go allows you to make your real life into fascinating virtual life.
It is a free mobile app for android and iOS developed by Niantic and published by The Pokémon Company. It has been released on July 2016 and already has its first update. Although it is free app but you can also use money to buy some Poké coins that you could use to buy some in game items. This app uses your phone’s GPS, clock and camera to detect location and time to decide which Pokémon should appear in the game.
How does this work?
This game uses global position system (GPS) and camera of your phone to detect location for placement of the Pokémon and augmented reality to make these Pokémon that you have seen on your mobile screen, looks like they are standing right in-front of you, makes you to travel from real life into mesmerizing fiction life.
How to play?
Once you have downloaded and installed the game, all you have to do is roam around find those cute little monsters, capture them in Poké ball, customize and traine them for the battle you played against other players.
Pokémon that is more likely to appear depends on the location and time when you are playing. River and lakes seems to contain water type like Floatzel and Golduck. If you are at a graveyard or if it is night then ghost and fairy types are more likely to appear like Clefairy and Trevenant. Rock, electric and fir type are seen randomly.
