Playing Pokémon GO on Mobile
Pokémon GO is an augmented reality mobile game developed by Niantic for iOS and Android devices. The game was released in select countries in July 2016 and has since been released in most regions of the world.
The objective of the game is to capture, battle, and train virtual creatures, called Pokémon, who appear on the screen as if they were in the real world. The game uses the player’s GPS location to determine which Pokémon appear. Pokéstops, located at interesting places such as monuments, art installations, historical markers, and other locations, provide players with items such as eggs, Poké Balls, and potions. Players can also battle their Pokémon at gyms.
To play Pokémon GO, players must first create an account. Once they have done so, they can customize their avatar, which appears as a trainer on the map. The player’s avatar starts off at their real-world location. As they move around, their avatar moves along the map. Different types of Pokémon will appear in different areas; for example, water-type Pokémon will appear near bodies of water.
To catch a Pokémon, players must throw a Poké Ball at it. The Poké Ball will bounce off the Pokémon a few times before finally catching it. The player will then receive experience points and the Pokémon will be added to their Pokédex.
Players can view the Pokémon they have caught in their Pokédex. The Pokédex keeps track of the Pokémon the player has seen and caught and displays information about them such as their type, habitat, and evolution stage.
Once a player has caught a certain number of Pokémon of a certain type, they can evolve their Pokémon. This is done by using Stardust and Candy, which are items that can be found while playing the game. After a Pokémon is evolved, it becomes stronger and may learn new moves.
Players can also battle their Pokémon against those of other players at gyms. Gyms are located in real-world locations. To battle, players must first join one of three teams: Mystic, Valor, or Instinct. Each team has its own strengths and weaknesses. Players can then challenge other players of the same team at a gym. The winner of the battle remains at the gym and gains Prestige. The loser’s Pokémon are returned to them and they receive half of their Prestige back.
Players can also battle against Pokémon belonging to other teams, but this will result in a decrease in Prestige for the player. If a player’s Prestige drops to zero, they will be kicked out of the gym.
To play Pokémon GO, players need an iOS or Android device with a data connection. They also need to allow the game to access their location.
