What is Pokemon Go Exactly?

Pokemon Go is the newest thing born of the apparently still popular Pokemon product franchise.  It is a free, location-based game app created by a company called Niantic.  This mobile augmented reality game was released weeks ago. It presently is only compatible with Android and iOS smartphones and other like equipment. Game contestants are able to perform numerous actions having to do with hatching, fighting, capturing and instructing various virtual creatures called Pokemon. The Pokemon regularly and unexpectedly appear on different electronic screens as though they were here in our world. Players may also purchase additional in-app items for use with Pokemon Go.  For example, they have a custom Bluetooth.  It’s known as the Pokemon Go Plus.  It notifies the wearer as soon as there is a Pokemon nearby.

Reviews

At first, Pokemon, Go was given at best “mixed reviews.” According to various on and offline critics, the game reportedly had significant tech issues.  Still, it was praised for getting homebound gamer-geeks out of the house if not also offline. If you thought Candy Crush was crazy, that was nothing compared to Pokemon Go.  Pokemon Go is huge and all alone has actually caused a rise in the actual value of Nintendo stock.  They must be chasing Pokemon even on Wall Street. Initially Pokemon go was even praised by a few doctors because they believed the game was good for the physical and mental health of otherwise often stagnant gamers.  More recently, however, the game has garnered more criticism because Pokemon Go players have been getting hurt, trespassing and causing other assorted problems while playing the game. Nevertheless, despite all the controversy, Pokemon Go remains a famous fascination among all those who have ever dreamt of being a Pokemon trainer.
