Our minds just got blown! Pokemon GO!
Just the mere thought of being able to play a 3D Pokemon experience is enticing, but to be able to use augmented reality to actually track and catch Pokemons in the real world and they to battle, trade and meet up to fight and catch Mew Two with other trainers? To all this we say, here’s our money, make it happen and a resounding YES!
These were the feelings, which we still have, when we saw the announcement trailer of Pokemon GO. What Pokemon GO does is using your mobile phone and a small device called a Pokemon GOPlus connected via Bluetooth, allows you to track and capture wild Pokemons in the real world. It’s a mix of GPS and augmented reality.
When searching for Pokemons, the user would use the GPS on their mobile device to follow direction to the Pokemon. When the user is close the Pokemon GOPlus, with the use of LED and vibrations, would indicate that the user is close by. Using the camera, you’ll be able to then see where the Pokemon is and capture it.
All from the looks of the trailer, you’ll also be able to trade and fight with others and best of all, team up to try and take down high level Pokemons. This is just awesome!
Pokemon GOPlus is being developed and manufactured by Nintendo Co., Ltd. while PokemonGO is being developed by Niantic, Inc. Niantic, Inc., The Pokemon Company, and Nintendo Co., Ltd., will all team up and contribute to the Pokemon GO project.
Pokemon Go will be free to download from the App Store and Google Play. So, that’s iOS and Android. There will be in-app purchases and Pokemon GO will be launching in 2016.
