Here's the scoop from the looks of it -Pokemon Go is an augmented reality app for Android and iPhone -You go out in the real world and find Pokemon, then battle them and catch them -You can battle other people in real life with your Pokemon that you've caught -You can trade Pokemon with other people in real life -There will be events where you and your community will battle a legendary Pokemon with a time limit and attempt to defeat it -This app comes out in 2016; it'll be free to play, but will have in-app purchases -There will also be a watch-like Bluetooth device called Pokemon Go Plus that interacts with the game in multiple ways, such as alerting you if there is a Pokemon nearby or if something like an event is happening. This low-energy device is optional and was designed to make it so people wouldn't have to stare at their phones constantly in order to be aware of things happening around them. -This is being developed by The Pokemon Company, Game Freak, Nintendo, and a company called Niantic that worked on a similar game called Ingress. Miyamoto himself is involved with it. -This will not interfere with the mainline Pokemon games, but it might tie into them in the future Here's some of what we don't know -What Pokemon will this game start with? (Only Kanto Pokemon appear in this trailer) -What are the in-app purchases? Pokeballs? Potions? Exclusive Pokemon like in the Game Corner? TMs and HMs? -Which Pokemon can you find? How often? Will some Pokemon be exclusive to certain areas? -Will battling work the same way as in Pokemon games with the same attacks, stats, abilities, etc? -Etc Overall I'm very excited, this is every Pokemon fan's dream and they're making it all a reality. It seems too good to be true though, especially after what The Pokemon Company pulled with Pokemon Shuffle Mobile. I eagerly await more details but for now I'm cautiously optimistic about Pokemon Go. What do you guys think? What features do you want to see? Which Pokemon do you want to catch? What will be your type/gimmick when you become your town's gym leader? DISCUSS!!
