WHAT IS POKEMON GO?
For those that have no idea of what Pokémon Go is. Pokémon Go is a free-to-play location-based augmented reality mobile game developed by Niantic for iOS and Android devices. It was released in most regions of the world in July 2016. Every player has the option to use real money to buy in-game currency called PokéCoins which can be used to purchase Pokéballs, the in-game item you need to be able to catch Pokémon. Although you must not necessarily pay with real money as you can pay with your time and energy which is the fun-fun you know.
Pokémon Go works by using your phone’s GPS for your real-world location and augmented reality to bring up those cool-looking Pokémon on your screen. It is easy to play as much as it is interesting, you just need an iPhone or Android phone, and have a strong Wi-Fi connection or cellular data available.
