Pokemon GO gameplay

First you have to log in the game and create your avatar.The app uses your location map and displays that map and it’s surroundings in the gameplay.Along with the pokemons,the map will also feature some PokeStops and Pokemon Gyms.

Unlike the pokemon games in other handheld devices like Gameboy,NDS or N3DS , you don’t have to battle and weaken pokemon to capture it.You just throw pokeballs at them and luckily you will catch the pokemon or try again.

Now finding pokemons is the trickiest part.You actually have to run along the roads and other places to find pokemons.Your phone will show how far the pokemon is and then you will have to walk to it and find it and then ofcourse catch it.


This is you in the next days, literally

Pokemon GO PLus

The Pokemon GO Plus is a Bluetooth wearable device for your wrist.It helps to operate the game without your smartphone.When a player is near a Pokemon or PokeStop, the Plus vibrates. The player can then press the button to capture the Pokemon.The player cannot check what they have caught until the device is connected to an appropriate mobile device

The Pokemon Go is really an enjoyable game.People say you become lazy playing video games all day in your home.Well say goodbye to it cause Pokemon GO actually helps you to keep fit with all the walking and running.

The sad thing is that the game has not been released too all countries yet.With all the hype of Pokemon GO, we hope it will soon be released in all regions.Fingers crossed. But many like me have already played the game through some pirated methods (sounds very Bangladeshi right?? 😛 ) And the let me tell the game is as good as it gets.
