New gameplay details have been revealed for the anticipated location-based mobile game called Pokémon Go, in which the players will catch and train Pokémon creatures. This game is based on the popular series that brought in revenue of $34.8 billion in 2015 to the developers. Annually, the Pokémon franchise makes $1.5 billion and soon, the Pokémon Go will surely increase revenue.
According to a press release sent by The Pokémon Company and Niantic, “In Pokémon Go, players around the globe will explore their surroundings to find and catch wild Pokémon hiding in our midst,” adding that some wild Pokémon will be found in their native environments and when the players will explore the world and bump into Pokémon, their phones will vibrate. In order to catch these creatures, the players will use their phones; touch screens to throw a Poké Ball, which, like other special items, can be found at PokéStops in public places such as historical markers, monuments etc.
Over time, when their Trainer level will increase, the players will catch more Pokémon, and if they’ll capture a multiple entity Pokémon (it consists of two or more separate living entities), they’ll be able to evolve that creature. The players can also buy Eggs at PokéStops and when they walk a certain distance, their eggs will hatch and they will have a baby Pokémon.
The developers have also mentioned that “During gameplay, Pokémon Go players will be encouraged to join one of three teams and engage in Gym battles with other teams,” and after joining a team, they will assign their Pokémon to empty Gyms, which will be located in different parts of the world. However, “because only one Pokémon per player can be placed at a given Gym, team members will need to work together to build a strong defense. A Gym claimed by one team can be challenged by the other two teams.”
Pokémon Go will be released later this year and it will bring in-game achievements.
