After several months of field tests and teasers, the Pokémon Go phone game will finally be released this July! The new game, which is specifically designed for use with iOS and Android products, strives to bring the world of Pokémon to life by letting users go out and catch Pokemon in real life! Using your phone as an AR device, you can go out and find wild Pokémon in the real world, capturing them and training them as your very own. You will also be able to create Pokémon “gyms” by joining a group of other Pokémon Go users and battling your team against theirs. Alongside the July release date, Nintendo has announced that a separate wristband add-on will be available for $35, which will allow Pokémon Go users to catch wild Pokémon without having to use their phones! Nintendo has also said that they are planning more phone-based games in the future, including Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem titles.
