Pokémon GO unveiled new screenshots on its official website and explains the basic gameplay of the game further. Check out the trailer to know more.
Pokémon GO is an upcoming augmented reality game for mobile phones developed by Niantic, scheduled to be released in 2016 for iOS and Android devices. The game will allow players to capture, battle, train and trade virtual Pokémon who appear throughout the real world.
The Narrowing Map of Pokemon GO
In the process of adventure, players will be able to explore the surrounding environment finding and capturing the wild Pokemon. The wild Pokemon have their own particular habitats, for example, you may meet the drainage Pokemon near lake or the ocean.
When a player is near a Pokémon, their phone will vibrate. They must then catch it by using the touch screen to throw a Poké Ball at it.
Players can obtain more Poké Balls and "other special items" by visiting PokéStops, each of which is located at various landmarks. Examples of their locations that are given are "public art installations, historical markers, and monuments."
As players play, their Trainer Level will increase. This will allow them to "capture more powerful Pokémon" and unlock more items.
In Pokémon GO, evolution is handled a bit differently. Pokémon can only evolve if you capture the same one multiple times.
Players can obtain Pokémon Eggs, which will hatch after the player has walked an unspecified distance.
Various "achievement medals" can be earned for completing "challenges." These can then be shown off to friends.
Players will supposedly be "encouraged" to join one of the game's three teams so that they can take part in Gym battles. Gyms are found at various landmarks, just as PokéStops are. If they are affiliated with a team, players can assign one of their Pokémon to each Gym, after which they will automatically battle the other teams' Pokémon. The winning team will then take control of the Gym. It is noted that "because only one Pokémon per player can be placed at a given Gym, team members will need to work together to build a strong defense."
An "early user test" is scheduled for sometime "while the game is still in active development." This will be a Japan-exclusive test.
