Pokemon Go


Pokémon Go was announced as an Android and iOS game. Developed by Nintendo and Niantic, the game allows players to explore the real world to catch virtual Pokémon. 

Pokémon Go Plus, is a small bluetooth accessory shaped like a teardrop Pokeball on a bracelet that will alert you to nearby Pokémon by lighting up and vibrating. Tsunekazu Ishihara of The Pokémon Company said in a press conference that Pokémon Go has been in development for around two years and the late Satoru Iwata had a hand in working on it.

The game will be available some time in 2016 for iOS and Android and takes place 20 years after ||Red/Blue/Yellow and will be free-to-play, though there will be in-app purchases you can make. The concept looks pretty awesome, especially for the inner 10 year old boy in me that played the original Red and Blue on GameBoy.

  1. When you say “the game will […] take place 20 years after Red/Blue/Yellow” it sounds like you’re trying to say that there’s some sort of gap in the Pokemon timeline that this game fits in, when you really mean that 2016 is going to be the 20 year anniversary of the Pokemon video games.
