POKEMON GO Coming In 2016
by Joey Pedras (@joeypedras)
The time has come where Nintendo joins the app world in a very big way. With one of the biggest franchises of all time. Pokemon GO will be an app available on iOS and Android. From what we can gather, you’ll go out with your smartphone, and discover Pokemon lurking in the “wild”. Using your smartphone, you’ll be able to find new Pokemon wherever you go, capture them, train them, and use them in battles. From the trailer, it seems like there will also be major events held to capture rare, and powerful Pokemon. As shown in the trailer. We haven’t seen much yet in terms of interface or how the wearable Pokeball attachment will work, but it’s safe to say, we’re excited.
The prospect of taking the world of Pokemon from your DS, and applying it to reality is something those of us who played Pokemon as children have always wanted. It’ll also give most of us a reason to get out of the house, and explore our towns and cities in a whole new way. Not to get too deep, but it might give kids (and adults) a new found wonder for the outdoors. If the application is as accessible, and fun as we’re hoping it’ll be. We’re many years away from holographic projections which will be the ultimate form of “real life“ Pokemon, but this seems like it’s trying to close that gap until then.
We’re very excited for Pokemon GO.
