Pokémon Go is a new augmented reality game, developed primarily for iOS and Android. The game was curated by Niantic Inc., in association with The Pokémon Company. Pokémon Go needs no introduction as you might have already heard the name, everywhere around you on social networks and in the real world too. People are going cranky with the game as it comprises a whole new concept of gaming, which is augment reality. According to this AR concept, objects in the game appear to be the real entities. In essence you can actually see the Pokémon in real world using your phones camera. Well, this is not the only things that had made this game gone viral; it is the ‘Pokémon’, an animated series which was a huge success of its time.

Storyline and Gameplay:
The storyline of the game is pretty much same as that of the Pokémon animated series. You start as a trainer and need to gain Pokémon’s as much as possible. To catch the Pokémon’s you have pokeballs, which needs to throw towards the Pokémon’s; if your shot is powerful enough, Pokémon will get into your pokeballs. There are tons of Pokémon’s available in the game, so you “gotta catch’em all”.
There are trainer levels, which can be increased by increasing the experience points. You can experience points for everything you do in the game; for instance catching a Pokémon will earn 100 experience points. With every upgrade in the trainer level, you get some additional pokeballs and some extra items such as incense, revive etc. Talking about the special items, there are many included in the game; one such is Incense, which when activated will attract Pokémon’s towards you, so you get more and more Pokémon in a single play. This lasts for half an hour though, so you need to make the most of those 30 minutes. There are several other amazing special items which you look out in the game.
Pokémon Go has pretty much everything that you can see in the animated series; it has gyms, their trainers, pokestops etc. The most important aspect of the game is that you cannot play it being stationary at one location; it requires; which is quite similar to what ‘Ash Ketchum’ does in the animated series. Gyms are made similar to what was displayed in the animated series, and you can fight with gym trainers in the respective gym. Pokestops have been introduced, where you can get pokeballs, special items or even Pokémon’s; so in case you run out of pokeballs, you can just find a pokestop in your location and refill you tank.
