Omfg something huge just happened in the gaming world. May be a new era of smartphone gaming , though this concept was old it made a huge appearance now.
Yes it’s on our iOS and Android devices!!!
Being an Indian in our point of view I can say those days may be over for a typical Indian smartphone gamer who addictively plays clash of clans or mini militia.
Why? Because there’s something you once wished is coming true.
What is it? Why is it that people are excited?
Because It’s Pokémon!!
Yes we know that Pokémon was once a big part of childhood and for us it wasn’t just restricted in Television.
Yes we 90’s kids were growing up playing those Pokémon video games on their gameboy app and we did battle out Pokémon cards during lunch breaks at school.
So what did Pokémon contribute to the gaming world?
Through the latest Pokémon Go a new mobile game which is based on augmented reality. It’s wildly popular and it’s already top app in iTunes store US.
What is Augmented reality?
Augmented reality is a connection between the real world and virtual world.Basically Pokémon Go is Google Maps if you added Pokémon to it. So it takes our real-life world and adds a fictional layer to it by using your phone’s GPS. In the game, you collect Pokémon and go to “PokéStops” to pick up items that will help you capture more Pokémon.
Where is it available?
It’s not yet available on play store in India but you can download the apk file which you can get by simply googling it out.
Though it’s illegal and they might ban your account , nobody gives a shit.
How is the gameplay?
Players literally have to walk in the real world to move their avatar in the game.(ik it’s a secret ultimate fitness app too 😉 )
Features on the map may include a number of Pokéstops and Pokémon gyms. These are typically located at popular meeting places, such as memorials, places of worship, parks and tourist attractions.
Unlike other installments in the Pokémon series, players in Pokémon Go do not battle wild Pokémon to capture them. Rather, the game relies on a unique capture system where the player must throw a pokéball with the right force and at the right time to make a successful catch. After capturing a wild Pokémon the player is awarded two types of in-game currencies: candies and stardust. The candies awarded by a successful catch depends on what evolutionary chain a Pokémon belongs to. A player can use stardust and candies to raise a Pokémon’s”combat power” (CP). However, only candies are needed to evolve a Pokémon.
Player vs Player battles will be released in the next patches , because they already showed that in their trailer. That would make the game complete , add more competition among the players which will get you even more addicted.
While playing the game make sure you are aware of your surroundings.
So I don’t wanna spoil your game by telling you how Pokestops and Pokegyms work. Pokemon Go isn’t just about catching all the Pokemon only because of them , but one thing for sure they’ll eventually add more stuffs into this and make the Go world huge.
Now go out there in the real world and just catch em’ all.
