Pokémon Go out now on iPhone and Android

Teen Playing 'Pokemon Go' Stabbed and Mugged for His iPhone

Millions of people have already downloaded it, and if you haven’t tried it yet, you should definitely download Pokemon GO right now. It’s unclear when the iOS app listing will show up in the App Store, but it’s likely Apple’s more involved approval process is preventing Pokémon Go from having a simultaneous launch on both platforms.

Pokemon Go is a departure from previous iterations of the fantasy bug-collecting sim.

This lead to some tech-savvy fans to upload the game online for Android devices.

Yesterday, after the Pokemon Go app was released, netizens were spamming social media timelines with pictures of their Pokemon Go experience.

A company-made Bluetooth accessory alerts you when a Pokemon is discovered near your location as your sole aim in the game is to capture them all.

If there is a wild Pokemon near you, the device will flash green. You can download the game for free.

iPhone 5/5C/5S/SE/6/6S/6 Plus/6S Plus are all the iOS handsets proven compatible for the game at the moment, with software version 8 and 9. Whether it be card collecting, the nintendo gameboy, or catching them on TV, Pokemon has always been a staple on several platforms. It would appear that the cost of finally becoming a Pokemon trainer is a drained battery, though it isn’t much of a surprise that some players don’t seem to care.

Meanwhile, authority figures have been advising “Pokemon GO” trainers to be extra careful while searching areas for Pokemon to catch. We’ll look for official status updates for you, but for now leave your comments below if you are hyped for the release – it could be today!

It’s nearly impossible to encounter a millennial that does not have fond memories of Pokemon as a child.

Pokemon GO – a joint mobile venture between Nintendo, the Pokemon Company, and Niantic – is now officially available and has been downloaded well over 50,000 times in less than 48 hours.
