App Review: Pokemon GO for IOS & Android

Ok, so this one of the biggest Pop Culture apps to be released on mobile of all time!

So Niantic & Pokemon Company have just released Pokemon Go into the Japanese, Australian, New Zealand and finally to the USA.

It was a very soft launch with very little hype. To be honest i only saw it as one of the guys i speak to in my anime group on facebook let me know, the rest is history.

So for those who have been living under a rock for the past year or so, Pokemon Go is an augmented reality GPS based game which Pokemon are loaded into the world map. Its your job to go out and find these Pokemon and complete Professor Willow’s dream.

So I am not going to give much away is it is a must to go and download this and play this game.

So here is the basics!

You pick your team and your Kanto Starter (Bulbasaur, Squirtle or Charmander). Your team consists of three colour which are nostalgically Red, Blue and Yellow.

Strength is determined by CP or Combat Points, you can level up your Pokemon by going to Gyms run by different teams, catching more Pokemon, going to pokestops or even hatching an egg.

Augmented Reality works by using your camera and the Pokemon are placed in the screen in the direction the Pokemon was on the map, so not always in front of you.

Pokemon is a free game, though you can buy PokeCoin’s and purchase items, these are in-game Google Play Or App Store purchase so be careful.

The higher the level you are the more stronger Pokemon will appear. It’ll also make it more difficult to catch.

There are many things to be discovered and released. 

My tips:

1. Grind to level 5 and keep catching Pokemon. 

2. Use items to your advantage. 

3. Focus on hatching eggs to gain XP. 

4. Level up multiple Pokemon don’t just power up one! 

Here is where you can download it!
