Pokémon Go is a new game that has been released for Android and iOS by Niantic. This new game is allowing the gamers to collect Pokémon from real world locations.
The game is tracking your location thanks to your smartphone’s GPS and it allows you to find Pokémon that are nearby. Once you find a Pokémon, you will be able to capture it using a Pokéball.
It is good to know that Pokémon Go is an augmented-reality game, which means that it overlays the game content onto the real-world thanks to the primary camera found on your smartphone.
According to Business Insider, Pokémon Go will even get better as the “Licenses” section of the game has a list of open software and libraries that have been used into creating the game and at the top is Google Cardboard. Google Cardboard is a cheap and simple wearable holder that can be used on many different smartphones to turn them into “homemade” virtual reality headsets.
This will surely make many gamers very happy, as you will be able to see the Pokémon right in front of your eyes, but we are not sure how this will actually work, since this game is played mostly outside and most of the time you will be walking. In other words, you could just get hurt as you will not be able to pay attention to your surrounding.
That being said, we are not so sure that Pokémon Go will truly be released to Google Cardboard, especially because there are too many risks involved. You can get injured because you couldn’t see where you are stepping, someone could come and grab your phone and the list goes on.
However, one thing is for sure: Pokémon Go is an awesome game and it is most likely one of the few games that makes the gamers go outside and move around. This means that the gamers will finally have to walk around if they want to make sure that they will catch a good amount of Pokémon.
