Pokémon Go Review by Brad Stokes
August 19, 2016 By Brad Stokes
Pokémon fans you gotta catch em all!
Since the release of the Pokémon Go app in July for Android and IOS devices it has taken the world by storm, you can barely pass someone in the street without them using this app.
It’s been every Pokémon fans dream to become a trainer and catch these magnificent creatures and now this app has made this a reality.
The aim of the app is to track down Pokémon using your phone through Google Maps, when you come across a Pokémon your phone will alert you by buzzing and it should appear on the screen, you simply tap onto it and you’re phone should look like the image shown above.
You throw your Poke ball by swiping upwards until it hits the Pokémon which will then allow you to catch and add them to your Pokedex.
The pokedex is there to register any Pokémon you may catch, so you will know how many you’ve got left to collect, once caught you can look at the Pokémon and the description which will tell you the type and what combat ability’s it can use in battle, image shown below of what the pokedex looks like.
While using the app you will come across Pokestops, these mainly appear on the map when you are passing venues e.g. pubs and parks, the purpose of these stops are to help you with items to help catch and heal your Pokémon they can include Poke balls, Revives and eggs, the images below shows examples of this.
Another feature I personally like is that you can choose which team you want to join out of the 3 options, team red: Valour, team blue: Mythic or team yellow: Instinct, once you have chosen your team you can battle the rest of your opponents to take over the gyms by choosing your best Pokémon to fight, if you are successful the gym will turn to the colour of your team which you then will have control of that particular gym until someone beats you.
I rate this game 8/10 I really enjoy using the app however it can also be quite frustrating, especially when you are trying to catch Pokémon because the screen can freeze at times causing you to restart the app and potentially lose the Pokémon you had caught.
Have you got what it takes to catch them all?
Available now on all IOS and Android devices.
