The game called Pokémon Go based on our favourite cartoon from childhood, based on the same name has taken over our lives. It has gone on a rampart and has conquered the world owing to this unique and innovative design. The game is quiet an activity because it takes the real world, puts all our favourite characters and puts it into our mobile phones as a virtual game. What a brilliant game by Niantic and Nintendo, bring all our childhood memories and dreams and compiling them in an app.
Let’s get to the game. As far as I remember, Ash when he was 10 years old left his home looking for Pokémon’s so that he could become the best Pokémon trainer in the world. He used to wander through foreign land; catch Pokémon’s that came his way and battle other masters to earn badges and that is exactly what you do in the game. You download the app, start playing the game and you will be given a Pokémon to begin with and after that you will have to walk round with the app and look for Pokémon’s. Once you find a Pokémon, then you will have to throw a pokeball at it to capture it. You will have to throw the pokeball with the perfect speed and direction. Then you need to look for pokestops which will help you get your necessities in the game. You will need pokeballs, potions, and lures to advance in the game. As you will progress in the game, you will find it tough to catch stronger Pokémon’s with your normal pokeballs so you’ll need to buy those pokeballs from the pokestops. Lures are also important so that you can attract Pokémon’s to your location and so are potions, so that you can heal the Pokémon’s after a battle with another trainer. These pokestops are generally tourist attractions or places of heritage. Pokestops are one of the most useful components in the game as you can earn free coins that will help you buy utilities, using these. All you need to do is capture a pokestop and put a Pokémon of yours’ on guard. Every 24 hours that you guard, you earn 10 coins.
The general goal of the game is to complete one’s pokendex by catching all the Pokémon’s in the game. It might now come to your mind that catching all the possible Pokémon’s in the game is pretty tough because some of the rare pokemons are rarely visible. So many innovators came up with maps that show exactly where the Pokémon’s and pokestops are around you as this map gives you a wider view of your locality by finding a mole in the Pokémon Go servers but sadly Pokémon Go has blocked all of these other servers that are trying to get into theirs so you won’t be able to use them now. There is another option though and it’s called Pokemon Mapper and it was started by a fan who wanted to make it easier for other players to catch Pokémon’s. This website let’s Pokémon players update a world map by denoting where they found a legendary or rare Pokémon. The users give the exact address and by this way they help their fellow players and this website will never be taken down as it is like a blog post by fans. Though this website has it’s negatives as anybody can update and there is no assurance that the information is correct and you can easily be trolled but this website is definitely worth as it has always been helpful to me.
Pokémon got highest audience after its launch and it beat the download record of Clash Royale in America which is a big deal. Download the game and start walking soon!
