Pokémon GO ✪

“Pokemon GO Plus”

Optional accessory that lets you know when shit’s going down. Can be worn like a watch.

I thought it looked better as a pin. Miyamoto knows what’s up.

Way better as a pin. But the Pokewalker did too.

That is an awesome trailer. The game looks like crap.

Its a mobile spinoff not exactly sure what you were expecting. To be honest I’ll be surprised if its not loaded with microtransactions.

Not a main series game, no fucks given.

PokeMart Micro-transactions (All fake but I wouldn’t be surprised if it would happen lol)

$5.99 = 15 Pokeballs
$19.99 = 50 Pokeballs
$39.99 = 150 Pokeballs
$199.99 = 500 Pokeballs (Best Value)

$5.99 = 15 Revives
$19.99 = 50 Revives

$5.99 = 15 Potions
$19.99 = 50 Potions

$5.99 = 5 egg slots in breeding center (upgrade from just one slot, best value)

“Pokemon Go” and give us all your money.

If you’ve played Pokemon Shuffle you’d know that probably won’t be the case. Or Ingress, which I don’t remember having microtransactions at all.

But who knows.

You think there’s not going to be microtransactions?

Shuffle has them but they’re fairly light. Let’s not pretend no game on 3DS has them either.

Rumble World uses these purple diamonds as micro-transactions which are pretty lame and the diamonds are used for almost everything, otherwise the only game you will be playing is the waiting game.

I called it!

Though it’s not quite what I was expecting but still a cool idea. I would have loved to have had this back when I use to walk downtown all the time or worked at GameStop.

I don’t leave my house much anymore. :stuck_out_tongue:

This game looks like…[quote=“Andrex”]
Holy shit[/quote]

That’s right. Not just $h!t, but…[quote=“Andrex”]
Holy shit[/quote]

Because regular $h!t is not strong enough to convey the amount of $h!t this game really is, which is…[quote=“Andrex”]
Holy shit[/quote]

I will end you.

New information and screenshots.

[quote]Get on your feet and step outside to find and catch wild Pokémon. Explore cities and towns around where you live and even around the globe to capture as many Pokémon as you can. As you move around, your smartphone will vibrate to let you know you’re near a Pokémon. Once you’ve encountered a Pokémon, take aim on your smartphone’s touch screen and throw a Poké Ball to catch it. Be careful when you try to catch it, or it might run away! Also look for PokéStops located at interesting places, such as public art installations, historical markers, and monuments, where you can collect more Poké Balls and other items.

In Pokémon GO, you will gain levels as a Trainer, and at higher levels you will be able to catch more powerful Pokémon to complete your Pokédex. You’ll also have access to more powerful items, such as Great Balls, to give you a better shot at catching Pokémon. Keep exploring and encountering Pokémon to raise your level!

There are other ways to add Pokémon to your roster, too. If you catch the same species of Pokémon enough times, you’ll get the opportunity to evolve one of them. And as you explore, you may find Pokémon Eggs at PokéStops, which will hatch after you’ve walked a certain distance. When they hatch, you may find Pokémon you’ve never seen before!

Some wild Pokémon will appear only in certain places near where you live or around the world. For example, some Water-type Pokémon may appear only near lakes and oceans. If you’re away from home, be sure to stay alert for Pokémon you wouldn’t normally encounter!

At a certain point in the game, you’ll be asked to join one of three teams. Once you join a team, you’ll gain the ability to assign Pokémon you’ve caught to empty Gym locations or to a location where a team member has placed one of his or her Pokémon. Like PokéStops, Gyms can be found at real locations in the world. Each player can place only one Pokémon at a particular Gym, so you’re encouraged to work with others on the team to build up a strong defense.

If a Gym is already claimed by another team, you can challenge that Gym using your own Pokémon. Using the Pokémon you’ve caught, engage in battle with the defending Pokémon at the Gym to claim control.

A wide variety of challenges are available that highlight many different categories, such as catching Pokémon and exploration. By completing these challenges, you’ll unlock achievement medals that will appear in your player profile. Try your best to unlock as many medals as you can!

A portable device called the Pokémon GO Plus will enable Pokémon GO players to enjoy the game even while they’re not looking at their smartphones. The device connects to a smartphone via Bluetooth and notifies the player about events in the game—such as the appearance of a Pokémon nearby—using an LED and vibration. In addition, players can catch Pokémon or perform other simple actions by pressing the button on the device. Pokémon GO Plus will be available soon. Check back for more details.

An early field test limited to Japan only is planned for Pokémon GO while the game is still in active development. The features, available languages, design, and overall appearance are not final. Please stay tuned for information about expansion of the field test to other markets.

Pokémon GO will be available for download at no charge on the App Store and Google Play. In-app purchases will also be available.[/quote]

Holy shit you can make your own gyms and fight challengers. :hyper

Fricking Japan getting the field test even though Niantic is a US company… :disgust;

Still no ETA. :frowning:

The Verge: This is Pokémon Go, the ambitious AR game bringing pocket monsters to life

This looks fucking FIYAH :bow

Pokémon Go is in full effect. Somebody tell me I’m wrong.

Downloading Go.

Its not the game for me but I hope this gets people into the series and playing on Nintendo hardware.

It gives me something to do when just walking around.
