The game was released July 2016 for IOS and Android devices. It is a  free-to-play location-based augmented reality mobile game developed by Niantic.


The game allows players to capture, battle, and train virtual creatures, called Pokémon, who appear on device screens as though in the real world. It makes use of GPS and the camera of compatible devices. 

How to play

>After logging into the app for the first time, you as the player will create your first avatar. 
>you will then choose the avatar's gender, hair, skin, and eye color, and choose from a limited number of outfits.
>After you must have created the avatar, it would then display your current location along with your immediate surroundings. 

Features on the map
This include a number of PokéStops and Pokémon gyms. PokéStops provide players with items, such as eggs, Poké Balls, and potions and can be equipped with items called lures which attract wild Pokémon. 

Gyms serve as battle locations for team-based king of the hill matches. These are typically located at places of interest. These locations are re-purposed Ingress portals, Niantic's previous augmented reality game.

>As you travel the real world, their avatar moves along the game's map. Different Pokémon species reside in different areas of the world; for example, water-type Pokémon are generally found near water.

>When a player encounters a Pokémon, they may view it either in augmented reality (AR) mode or with a live rendered, generic background. 
AR mode uses the camera and gyroscope on the player's mobile device to display an image of a Pokémon as though it were in the real world. 

>you can also take screen shots of the Pokémon they encounter either with or without the AR mode activated.

The game is free-to-play, although it supports in-app purchases of additional gameplay items. An optional companion Bluetooth wearable device, the Pokémon Go Plus, is planned for future release and will alert users when Pokémon are nearby.
