Pokémon GO is an adventure game developed by Niantic Incorporated, a company known for the popular title – Ingress. The game is fully licensed by The Pokémon Company and it is available on both the Google Play Store and Apple App Store in 2016. It has just been released and it already has been downloaded for almost half a million times. It has an average rating of 4.0 out of 5 and it requires an Android version of 4.4 or iOS 8.0 or later.
The title is definitely self-explanatory – in Pokémon GO you literally go on an adventure to catch Pokémon. You will play the game while walking on streets, you will visit different landmarks so you can get new items, you will team-up with your soon-to-be friends and you will do whatever it takes to defend your gyms. Prepare yourself for a unique game based on the engine of Ingress and the popularity of Pokémon.
Pokémon GO requires a mandatory sign-up but that can be very easy achieved in 2016. On Android devices you will use your Google Play Services account and on Apple devices your App Store account. If you prefer, you can create a Pokémon Trainer Club and you will be good to go. Because the game requires a sign-in, your data will be saved regardless the device you use and when for as long as you use the same account you registered with.
The game currently uses only one currency called Pokécoins. You can use them to buy Pokéballs, various items for your Pokémon or extra storage. The price for those themed coins starts from $0.99 in exchange of 100 coins and goes up to $99.99 in exchange of 14,500 coins. There are also different values in-between.

Cheats & Tips for Pokemon GO
- Use the Pokémon tracker from your right corner of the screen to find nearby Pokémon. 3 footprints means that they are considerably far away, 0 means that they are nearby you.
- In order to catch a Pokémon, you need to throw the pokéball when the green circle almost disappears. The smaller the circle, the better your chance.
- If the ring surrounding the Pokémon is yellow or red you should not waste time or pokéballs and get away. You will need more powerful pokéballs for that specific Pokémon.
- As soon as you find an egg start hatching it. You will need to walk 2, 5 or even 10 kilometers (approximately 1, 3 or 6 miles) to hatch it. But it will be worth it.
- Visit the pokéstops as often as possible. The cooldown is relatively low – a maximum of 10 minutes and you will want to take all that pokéballs and items before someone else does it.
- Try to visit different areas of your town so you can catch different types of Pokémon. Each type of Pokémon can and will be found in certain areas – water-type near rivers and ponds, electricity type near cities and so on.
- Conquer gyms in order to get coins. If the gym is under a colleague’s control, make sure you defend it. You will still gain stuff.
- Unless you want to use them for guarding gyms, transfer all your duplicates to the Doctor. You will be rewarded with candies and other goodies.
- Use Incense wisely. Go in an area where you spotted different Pokémon, make sure you have enough pokéballs prepared and sit on a bench or something. Pokémon should start popping out from various places for almost half an hour.
- Turn Battery Saver on as soon as possible – it will put the app in a hibernate mode. You will need it if you plan going ‘on the field’ for an extended period of time. The phone will vibrate when a Pokémon is within your range so you can quickly open the app to catch the little guy.
Pokémon GO Review
Today is a great day for everyone because it is the release day of Pokémon GO. The most popular cartoon series in the world, the game that molded generations of children and saved Nintendo from bankruptcy has finally arrived on handheld devices in a modern way. Let’s get started right away.
So many things to say so little time to talk about them. Definitely the most epic thing about Pokémon GO is the fact that you will have to exit your house in order to catch different Pokémon, get items and battle for supremacy with other trainers. This game can easily be marketed as the wonder way for people to exercise – I’ve personally walked more than 5 miles today (yes, the game tracks those things).
And the good thing is that you will always encounter new Pokémon, trainers and you will indirectly learn about a lot of new places in your neighborhood and its landmarks. Another great thing about Pokémon GO is that it’s suited for all genres and ages. The game is not that hard to be played – all you need is enough time. Because of this, you can team-up with your relatives and friends and have a good time.
In addition to this, you must be aware that there is some sort of competition between 3 teams so you will have to choose a side along with your friends. Or you can go rogue and fight them all, if you think that’s more fun. One other interesting feature, in my opinion, about Pokémon GO is that the game uses the same old fun elements of a Pokémon game but modified for a more modern direct approach. It is true that I miss the fights with trainers where the strategy is involved but the developers promised that they will add that up in a future update. There are a lot of things left to say but I will let you discover by yourself – this title is amazing.
It may seem surprising but I’ve found some issues with Pokémon GO as well. Don’t worry though because there are pretty normal ones and I honestly believe that in time, all of them will be adjusted or bypassed. One of the most concerning problems regarding Pokémon GO is the fact that the game is pay-to-win. It is true that people who will invest real money will get stuff faster and will be able to hold gyms easier because of this and all that. But, a game is considered pay to win when you have access to stuff only if you pay money and fortunately that’s not the case in Pokémon GO.
All you have to do is work harder and be more determined and you will be able to enjoy the game just fine – at least for now. Secondly, another highlighted issue is the fact that the game will eat your device’s battery agonizingly fast. And that’s bad but keep in mind that you use your GPS, your camera and a standalone app at the same time. If you give up the AR mode and you check the battery saver option, things should be better. Last but not least, a matter of personal taste but something that will probably bug a lot of you guys is the lack of character customization.
You can only choose your genre and basic stuff such as the color of your hair and your shirt. I believe that this will be changed soon enough but until then we have all the rights to complain – we want our character to look like us, don’t we?
Overall, Pokémon GO is a title I would recommend from all my heart. It is a new type of game that can be both healthy and fun. Give it a chance even if you don’t like Pokémon, there is nothing to lose. I don’t know about you guys but I’m going to catch them all.
Pokemon GO Ratings
Artwork: Pokémon GO gets a rating of 9 out of 10 for its artwork. The core artwork of this game is the real life – I am not joking, if you have a gyroscope inside your smartphone or tablet, you will see 3D models of Pokémon and you will battle with them using your camera. If you don’t, you still have a very detailed world (based on the GPS), full with landmarks which act as pokéstops and a very nice user interface. The animations effects which are pretty few (it’s normal for a game like this though) are also looking wonderful. Everything about the artwork of this title is exactly like it should be – Pokémon-like.
Music & SFX: I give the game a rating of 9 out of 10 for its music and sound effects. Even though most of you will probably stop the music of the game when running on streets for Pokémon I must still say that the soundtrack is pretty good – it’s composed of the Pokémon songs or at least songs that would fit the Pokémon universe. There are also some pretty neat sound effects, especially environmentally-like ones but yet again you will probably not hear them because of the excitement and other surrounding real-life noises. However, we should be thankful for the work the developers put in making this and the rating reflects that.
Story/Originality: Pokémon GO gets a rating of 10 out of 10 at this section. Giving a lower rating for a Pokémon title would be something unforgivable. The game doesn’t really have a real story but nevertheless everybody knows the story – you must catch all the available Pokémon and you must become the very best. This title is the co-production of Nintendo with Niantic so everything is fully licensed. The mechanics are borrowed on a decent level from Ingress but everything else is unique and original.
General Gameplay: Pokémon GO scores 9 out of 10 for its general gameplay. The game welcomes you with a basic tutorial but you don’t need any tutorial whatsoever – you’ve prepared your entire life for this. All jokes aside, the game has a very friendly user interface, it doesn’t have too complex mechanics so everyone can play it and the bugs are reported only from people who downloaded it from 3rd party websites. The developers are already working on a fix for the battery drainage (until then we will not give a maximum rating) and there are no freezes, crashes or even ads.
Addictiveness: I give the game a rating of 10 out of 10 for its addictiveness. What more can be said at this section? In Australia there are reports from the local police that weird people will run from place to place with their phones in their hands. The app is the most downloaded in the last 24 hours on both Android and Apple and it was released in less than 6. Teams are already being made, strategies appear everywhere and both children and adults are guaranteed of having tons of fun. With smart updates now and then, this game will definitely be the most popular – you have so much to do and there is so little time.
Overall, Pokémon GO gets a rating of 9.4 out of 10. Potentially one of the best games ever created for handheld devices. Let’s just hope that the developers will keep up the good work – we’ve seen awesome titles collapse in anonymity before when the developers took bad decisions.
