The Pokémon we’ve all wanted is coming!

It’s been a while since I’ve had any interest whatsoever in a Pokémon game, and finally it’s all changed. Augmented reality has finally come around to show me something I could only dream about as a child, catching Pokémon in the real world!

“The day has finally come when Pokémon appear in the real world.” Junichi Masuda (Pokémon Designer)

From the team who brought you Ingress, that augmented reality spy game that has you capturing nodes through your town, comes Pokémon Go. It plays similarly except instead of getting nodes, you’re capturing, battling, and trading Pokémon! The trailer above shows a Raid where you team up with those around you and work together to defeat a boss type Pokémon.

As a child I could only dream about this, and now that it’s (augmented) reality, I can’t wait!

Scheduled for a 2016 release on both Android and iOS.
