How to Download Pokemon Go Game for Ios and Android?
Pokemon Go is a free-to-play location-based augmented reality mobile game developed by Niantic. It was initially released in July 2016 for iOS and Android devices, starting with Australia, Asia and the United States, with European releases to follow.
The game allows players to capture, battle, and train virtual Pokemon who appear throughout the real world. It makes use of GPS and the camera of compatible devices. Although the game is free-to-play, it supports in-app purchases of additional gameplay items. An optional companion Bluetooth wearable device, the Pokemon GoPlus, is planned for future release and will alert users when Pokemon are nearby.
The game received a mixed critical reception. However, it was the most downloaded smartphone app in the United States in its first three days of release and was a boon to Nintendo’s stock value.
