Pokemon Go, Revealed! 

The Best Pokemon Go Tips-and-Tricks Guide On The Net

(or at least we think so =D )

Pokemon Go Revealed : How To Guide
The world is currently caught up in Pokémon-fever. The worldwide sensation, titled pocket monsters in Japan, has been absolutely revitalized in the handheld realm by its latest version on Smartphones. Pokémon Go let’s you take on the role of the trainer, search your real life environment for the notoriously reclusive pets, engage them in battle, and capture them.

Pokémon Go has a very complex system that takes a bit of getting used to. In order to assist you, we’ve created this guide to break down all of the aspects of the game and help you learn each of your Pokémon’s strengths and weakness to help you succeed in battle.

Pokémon Go – A History

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 20 years since the release of the very first Pokémon game, but its first version was released in 1996. The original concept came from the minds of Satoshi Tajiri and Ken Sugimori a year prior to the game’s release. The first game was released on the Nintendo Game Boy system with a red and green version that introduced us to the world of the friendly monsters.

At the time of release, there were only 151 of the iconic Pokémon, but you had to have access to both versions of the game in order to collect them all. After the release of the red and blue versions, Nintendo released a special yellow Pikachu version that they designed just for the fans. Nearly every Nintendo gaming system has had at least one Pokémon game.

In addition to the video games, Nintendo also released a very popular series of Pokémon trading card games that allowed fans to play against and trade with their friends in a tabletop setting. This version of the game is still popular today with hobbyists and Pokémon enthusiasts alike.

In addition to games, there has been a long-running anime that has more than 900 episodes, which chronicles the Pokémon catching adventures of iconic trainer, Ash Ketchum and his best friend Pikachu. There have also been several spinoffs of the series and 18 theatrically released movies.

Pokémon Go – The Most Iconic In Series Evolution

most-famous-pokemon-go-characters

Pikachu: Of all of the Pokémon, Pikachu is the most well-known and iconic. This pocket monster is large mouse that has the ability to channel lighting into devastating attacks. In the series, Pikachu is always brave and dedicated. This pet is also very catchable in Pokémon Go; if you know where to look.

Charmander: Charmander is another famous Pokémon that values strength and loves to battle. Unlike Pikachu, Charmander is also known for his evolutions: Charmelion and Charizard.

Bulbasaur: As a plant-based Pokémon, Bulbasaur uses vines and charges to attack opponents. He’s another iconic Pokémon that is often seen with Pikachu.

Squirtle: Squirtle is a water blasting turtle that eventually evolves into Blastoise. Of all of Ash’s Pokémon, Squirtle is the most mild-mannered. If you find Squirtle in Pokémon Go, his friend Pikachu may also be nearby.

Jigglypuff: Jigglypuff often served as a foil in the anime; consistently putting the group to sleep when they tried to capture the elusive Pokémon. Jigglypuff simply sings his name and lulls his opponents into dreamland. In Pokémon Go, you can find Jigglypuff in multiple locations; just don’t fall asleep.

Snorlax: This sleepy Pokémon is large and seemingly innocuous, but this slumbering character is fierce in combat. Snorlax has recently become very popular due to a large body pillow that’s recently become available.

Meowth: This feline is popular because he’s the mascot and team member of Team Rocket; the villains of the Pokémon franchise. In the show the Meowth that the team encounters has a rare ability: he can talk; as a matter of fact, the Meowths that you can find in Pokémon GO don’t even have this ability.

Pokémon Go Release

In 2014, Nintendo announced a partnership with Niantic, which is a company that is experienced in producing mobile games. The partnership would bring some of Nintendo’s most iconic characters to the ever-growing mobile realm. As a result of this partnership, Pokémon Go was born. The game, which is available on every Smartphone platform, uses your location to find the ever elusive characters.

How Does the Game Work?

pokemon-satelite-maps

Utilizing technology that was developed by Google, Pokémon Go is able to place its title creatures within your day-to-day world. Using the Google Maps application, every street, monument, sidewalk, and store is faithfully mapped into the Pokémon Go world. If you happen to live near a large lake, you’ll find that there is water-type Pokémon lurking right on its banks. If you live in a dryer area, you may even find that you might have a Charizard as a neighbor.

Once you use the in-game screen to determine that a Pokémon is nearby, it’ll be your job to find it. To do this, you simply walk around you’re the neighborhood, and when your phone vibrates, click on Pokémon that has been revealed on the map so that you can battle it.

Once battle has been engaged, you’ll need the camera component of your Smartphone. The Pokémon will then appear transposed into your environment for you to capture. The process of capturing a Pokémon can be a bit of a drain on your device’s battery, so you can turn off the live Augmented Reality (AR) feature on the capture screen. A woodland environment will be displayed instead of your own when you disable this feature.

pokemon-go-maps-images

You can also enter battery-saving mode through a simple toggle in the settings so that you can catch them all without overly draining your device.

Getting Started: The Pokémon Go Guide

Once you’ve downloaded Pokémon Go from the Google Play Store or the App Store, the game will ask for permission to access your location. This is a key functionality of the game, so selecting no will make the game unplayable. Once you arrive at the title screen, it will ask you for your birth date.

When you’ve loaded this information in, the game will then ask you to sign up through your email address. Next, you’ll be guided to the terms of service page, where you must agree in order to access the game. If you are under the age of 13, then a parent must accept the terms on your behalf.

Next, you’ll be introduced to Professor Willow, who will explain what Pokémon are. After this explanation, he’ll ask for your help with his Pokémon research. After that, it’s time to make your trainer.

Creating Your Brand New Trainer: As with many games of this type, your first step will be to choose whether you want to play as a male or a female character. Pokémon Go has a plethora of unique looks for your trainer. This is because each aspect of your trainer’s appearance is completely customizable. When you are creating your trainer, you can select his or her:

o Skin color: With skin color, you’ll be able to select from four different skin tonalities; from relatively pale to some dark.

o Hair Color: There are six different hair colorations that include natural color options or more outlandish colors like blue and purple. This is where you can really express yourself in your trainer.

o Eye Color: The next option for customization is in eye coloration. You’ll be offered five different eye colors for your trainer. For the most part, since the game is top-down the majority of the time, you might not see your trainer’s eyes frequently.

o Hat: There are five different variations that feature the different team colors that you can adopt later in the game. The color options are red, yellow, blue, grey, and an option that doesn’t have a Pokémon symbol.

o Hooded Sweatshirt: The next customization option will allow you to select a top for your trainer. Trainers tend to favor hoodies or hooded sweatshirts. With this option, you’ll be able to select from four unique color options/designs: red, yellow, blue, and orange.

o Pants: There are four pants options that you’ll be able to select from. There are four color combinations to choose from; each varying in color and style.

o Sneakers: There are seven unique sneaker styles to pick from in Pokémon Go. The styles greatly vary, so you’ll have plenty of choice when it comes to this customization option for your trainer.

o Backpacks: The backpack options for your trainer change the details and color swatches on your character. You can select from seven unique shades and shapes for your trainer’s unique bag.

How to Catch Pokémon:

Once you’ve confirmed your character’s unique look, Professor Willow will tell you that there’s a Pokémon nearby and give you some Poké Balls in order to make your first catch. You will see three classic Pokémon on your screen that you will be able to choose from, but don’t be too hasty in your selection because there is a hidden fourth choice. The first three are iconic Pokémon: Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle. You can choose any of these three, you’d like, but they can easily be found at a later date. Charmanders can be a bit scarce, but they can still be found in the world.

The fourth, hidden option is Pikachu. To find this electric mouse, you’ll have to physically walk in the opposite direction (in real life). Once you walk far enough away, the other Pokémon will reappear. Walk away four to five more times and they will all reappear with their friend, Pikachu.

hidden-pikachu

Once he appears on the screen your device will vibrate in warning; tap him with your finger, throw your Poke Ball with measured precision, and catch your new Pikachu. This early Pikachu is just one of the hidden features of Pokémon Go; having him on your team gives you a leg up on the competition during this early part of the game.

How Poké Balls Work: Once battle engages, the fully animated Pokémon will appear on your screen and will challenge you to catch it. From here, you’ll only be armed with a Poké Ball that you’ll use to capture your opponent. Poké Balls are a finite resource, so you’ll have to try to avoid wasting them.

To throw the balls, you’ll need to flick the Poké Ball icon in the direction of the Pokémon. If a Pokémon performs an attack or your aim isn’t true, you’ll have wasted a Poké Ball. One way to help perfect your aim is to throw the balls with your index finger, rather than your thumb.

Leveling Your Trainer and Your Pokémon

Your Trainer: Since this character represents you, the process is a little more complex when you’re trying to get levels. In order to accrue the necessary experience points, you have to capture a lot of Pokémon, visit poke stops, hatch eggs, evolve your Pokémon to their various levels, and win gym battles against other trainers in your area. Fortunately, the first time that you capture a Pokémon, you’ll get bonus experience for your trouble.

As you grow, different aspects of the game will become unlocked, like the aforementioned gym access, which you obtain at level five as well as the ability to use potions, which restore 20 hit points, and revives, which bring a defeated Pokémon back to life at half its full hit points. As you level up, more perks become available, such as:

o At level eight, you can access razz berries, which you can feed to wild Pokémon in order to capture them with a bit more ease.

o At level ten, you get super potions. These restore your Pokémon’s health by 50 hit points.

o At level 12, you get a great ball, which is a more powerful poke ball that allows you to capture harder to obtain Pokémon.

o At level 15, you’ll gain access to hyper potions that restore 200 hit points to your Pokémon.

o At level 20, ultra balls become unlocked, which provides you with an even stronger Poke Ball to capture Pokémon.

o At level 25, max potions become available to fully replenish the health of your wounded Pokémon.

o At level 30, you will gain access to full revives, which revives a defeated Pokémon with full health.

Once your trainer reaches level 40, you have leveled to the max level of the game. Now you can focus more on leveling the various Pokémon that you capture.

max-trainer-rewards-level- 40

Your Pokémon: Pokémon can be leveled in two distinct ways; by increasing their combat power or evolving them to the next form. We’ll go more in-depth about the specific Pokémon evolution later on in this guide. When it comes to increasing their combat power or CP, you’ll need stardust in addition to the candy that is specific to the Pokémon you are trying to empower. Here’s how to empower your Pokémon :

o If you are trying to increase the CP of a Pidgeotto, you will need Pidgey candy. The candy and the stardust required can be purchased from the shop with real money or earned by catching and hatching additional Pokémon. These items can also be earned by transferring Pokémon to Professor Willow for his research, but if you transfer Pokémon, you’ll never see your captured pets again.

Leveling a Pokémon with low CP is somewhat pointless because you will almost certainly find one of the same type with high CP. You can also get stardust and Pokémon candies by defending your local gyms. These prizes can only be collected once every 40 minutes or so.

o If you are trying to evolve your Pokémon to its next form, it will require a specific amount of the necessary candy. Each Pokémon differs in how much candy is needed for the next level of evolution. For example: A Rattata takes 25 Rattata candy to evolve to its more powerful form, while a Tentacool requires 50 Tentacool candy to evolve. Magikarp, on the other hand, requires an astonishing 400 Magikarp candy to evolve.

Types of Pokémon

game-play-character-moves

There are currently 18 different pure types of Pokémon. These include:

Bug: Some examples of this type are, Caterpie, Pinsir, and Shelmet. Bug types have low defense, are weak to fire, flying, and rock-types, and typically deal physical damage. Their offensive attacks are somewhat weak.

Dark: Some examples of this type are Meowth, Darkrai, and Absol. Dark Pokémon are immune to psychic moves, but are also plagued with a lower health pool than other types of Pokémon. These creatures excel against psychic and ghost types.

Dragon: Some examples of this type are Dragonair, Goomy, and Dratini. Dragons are the fourth rarest types, so if you encounter them in the wild, you’re very lucky! They have resistances to almost all elements including electric, grass, water, and fire. Unfortunately, this strength does not extend to ice, which is a major weakness. Dragons frequently have a high attack power and very good speed.

Electric: Some examples of this type are Pikachu, Electrode, and Elekid. For many fans, electric is synonymous with Pikachu. This class of Pokémon has above average special defense, so they will be able to defend against special ability damage. Pure electric Pokémon are also resistant to moves that are electric in nature as well. Electric-types are also pretty fast.

Fairy: Some examples of this type are Clefairy, Spritzee, and Snubbull. Fairy-types are the third rarest type of Pokémon and are considered to have some of the best defense of all of the types of Pokémon. They also have a pretty strong offense; making them a great all-around type to have.

Fighting: Some examples of this type are Machop, Timburr, and Mankey. These Pokémon are all about the fight and look like they are always ready to brawl. These are some of the strongest offensive fighting types and these tend to do very well against rock and steel types of Pokémon. The weakness of the fighting type is flying and psychic Pokémon.

Fire: Some examples of this type are Charmander, Flareon, and Ponyta. These hotheaded Pokémon are powerful offensively and are very effective, but if a battle lasts too long, they will typically burn out, rather than fade away.

Flying: There is currently only one pure flying Pokémon: Tornadus. Flying types have the highest speed available of all the Pokémon. Their strength also can compare favorably to fighting types. Another great benefit of the flying Pokémon class is the type’s immunity to ground attacks.

Ghost: Some examples of this type are Shuppet, Yamask, and Misdreavus. Ghosts and Ice types are the rarest of all. Ghosts don’t have direct damage; they inflict status effects that cripple their opponents. They are also immune to all trapping abilities and normal or fighting-type moves. Ghosts are a uniquely defensive type of Pokémon.

Grass: Some examples of this type are Bayleaf, Shroomish, and Tangela. Grass types are the fourth most common Pokémon. These are all resistant to water, ground, and electric types of attacks. These are a great support-type Pokémon because their attacks aren’t very powerful.

Ground: Some examples of this type are Diglett, Sandshrew, and Drilbur. These underground dwellers are great at taking poison damage. They have below average defense and speed, but are some of the most powerful Pokémon when it comes to offensive moves, which tend to do great damage against electric opponents.

• Ice: Some examples of this type are Vulpix, Glaceon, and Vanillish. Again, these are tied with Ghost types as the rarest. If you’re looking for a defensive Pokémon, pick another because these Pokémon only resist ice. They are exceptionally weak to fire, fighting, rock, and steel.

Normal: Some examples of this type are Rattata, Eevee, and Snorlax. These middle-of-the-pack Pokémon are the second most common of all the pocket monsters. They have the lowest defense of all the poke-types and have a middling level of attack.

Poison: Some examples of this type are Nidoran, Koffing, and Arbok. These are status ailment using Pokémon that poison their enemies with damage over time effects. They are really effective against fairies and steel-type Pokémon; in fact, a poison type of Pokémon can often take a fairy down in a single hit. Poison Pokémon are also considered to be some of the best defensive types in the game.

Psychic: Some examples of this type are Abra, Hypno, and Wobbuffet. Psychic Pokémon all use their minds for devastating attacks. They usually have a lacking defense, so these types have to quickly gain the upper hand. These Pokémon cannot affect dark-type Pokémon.

Rock: Some examples of this type are Gigalith, Cranidos, and Sudowoodo. These Pokémon have high defense because they are rocky, which allows them to stay in the fight for a longer period. In addition to this defense, their stony attacks are high offensive as well. These attacks also are devastating against fire, ice, and flying Pokémon.

Steel: Some examples of this type are Klink, Registeel, and Mega Aggron. Ice, rock, and fairy are all weak to steel Pokémon. They have average attacks, below average special attacks, and high defense.

Water: Some examples of this type are Squirtle, Poliwag, and Krabby. These are the most common Pokémon. Their offense and defense is very strong. Electric types are the only Pokémon that pose a real threat to water-type Pokémon.

In addition to these pure types, there are several hybrids that include some that might recognize; as a matter of fact, there are many more hybrid types of Pokémon than there are pure types. As a result, some of the most iconic Pokémon like Charizard and Jigglypuff fall into this category. Here are just a few of the hybrid types:

Jigglypuff: The sleep-inducing singer Jigglypuff is a hybrid fairy and normal Pokémon.
Geodude: Geodude is a rock and ground type Pokémon.
Paras: As a hybrid of the bug and grass types, Paras has some interesting abilities that meld the two distinct Pokémon types together.
Venonat: Venonat is a Pokémon that blends both the bug and poison types; allowing him to lay status ailments on its foes.
Charizard: While many think that Charizard is a dragon, the Pokémon is actually a hybrid of the fire and flying types. Though it’s an easy mistake to make, especially when Charizard’s breathing fire.
Gastly: Ghastly is a great hybrid because he can weave the standard status effects that are used by the ghost types and also use poison abilities that poison types are famous for. This is definitely a great Pokémon to have on your team.
Venusaur: Bulbasaur’s evolution is a hybrid of grass and poison types. He can use his vine abilities while also poisoning his opponent for a dangerous one-two punch.

Flowchart of Types

pokemon-go-flow-chart
This flowchart will tell you exactly what each type of Pokémon is weak and strong against. When working with hybrids, these Pokémon tend to take on both the weaknesses and strengths of their two types, but this chart gives a great idea of how their attacks work.

The Most Common Pokémon and What They Evolve Into

Check this cool chart out from Erick Rowell

There are only 16 Pokémon that can evolve into all three stages. Many of the pure types in this listing become hybrids at some point in their evolution. If you want a more varied team, with varied abilities, it’s not a bad idea to look to see what your favorite Pokémon can evolve into. Some Pokémon like Bellsprout, which is very weak at its base form, becomes incredibly powerful in its final evolution.

To give you a better idea of some evolutions, here is a list of some:

• Bulbasaur  Ivysaur  Venusaur
• Charmander  Charmeleon  Charizard
• Squirtle  Wartortle  Blastoise
• Caterpie  Metapod  Butterfree
• Weedle  Kakuna  Beedrill
• Pidgey Pidgeotto  Pidgeot
• Nidoran (Male)  Nidorino  Nidoking
• Nidoran (Female)  Nidorina  Nidoqueen
• Oddish  Gloom  Vileplume
• Poliwag  Poliwhirl  Poliwrath
• Abra  Kadabra  Alakazam
• Machop  Machoke  Machamp
• Bellsprout  Weepinbell  Victreebel
• Geodude  Graveler  Golem
• Gastly  Haunter  Gengar
• Dratini  Dragonair  Dragonite

On the other hand, some other Pokémon have a two-tiered evolutionary path.

• Pikachu  Raichu (In previous versions of Pokémon, Pichu evolved into Pikachu. Unfortunately, he’s not available in Pokémon Go, so we’ve placed our old friend in the two-tiered evolution list)
• Vulpix  Ninetails
• Meowth  Persian
• Psyduck  Golduck
• Eevee (can evolve from Eevee into three forms) Vaporeon
• Eevee  Jolteon
• Eevee  Flareon

Once you’ve played Pokémon for a long enough time, you’ll start to notice that some types are more prevalent than others.

How to Snag the Rarest Pokémon

Porygon:

porygon

Porygon is a polygonal Pokémon of the normal class of Pokémon, meaning that this Pokémon doesn’t have a specific habitat. The easiest way to capture Porygon is by hatching an egg with him inside.
There is a less than five percent chance that you’ll receive a Porygon inside your egg. Typically, you’ll find this elusive Pokémon in a five kilometer egg. Alternatively, if you’re looking for a Porygon in the real world, for some reason they tend to show up in governmental buildings. This can include court houses, DMVs, and federal office buildings.

Chansey:

chansey_pokemon

Your prospects of finding a Chansey are a bit chancy. They are another normal type of Pokémon, which means they can come up in any part of the world. Since Chansey has healing abilities, there is a chance that you’ll find the Pokémon around places related to health, like hospitals, dental offices, or even pharmacies.

As with Porygon, there is a chance you can find Chansey in an egg. If you do, it’ll be from a ten kilometer egg. For whichever reason, Los Angeles seems to be a place where many players seem to have found Chanseys, so if you live around the area or plan to visit soon, don’t forget to take a look for this elusive scamp.

Magnemite:

magnemite-pokemon-go
As an electric/steel type of pokemonPokémon, Magnemite really likes to be where the heavy work is being done. Under this logic, look around industrial areas like power plants, railroad tracks, and factories. Some trainers have noticed that Magnemite likes to show up during and after thunderstorms. If you are planning on a Magnemite search in these conditions, please exercise extreme caution.

Once again, Magnemite can be found in an egg. Typically, it’s in five kilometer eggs that you’ll be able to find this elusive steel/electric hybrid. In addition, there seems to be a nest of Magnemites in Times Square New York.

Snorlax:

snorlax_pokemon-go

This big/squishy and overall lethargic Pokémon is also one of the rarest. Considered to be a mythical Pokémon, Snorlax is also of the normal type, which means you can find them anywhere. Interestingly enough, and perhaps unsurprisingly, Snorlaxes have been spotted in restful locations like beaches and parks. Of note, there have been two specific areas where Snorlaxes have been found. Both are in New York City; Prospect Park in Brooklyn and Central Park in Manhattan.

When it comes to hatching, Snorlaxes have been found in ten kilometer eggs as well.

Lapras:

lapras_pokemon_go

Lapras is one of the least common Pokémon and is also one of the absolute strongest. Lapras is a water and ice hybrid that has devastating attacks that can rock opponents. Lapras has been spotted on beaches, lakes, piers, and other bodies of water. Specifically of note, the Santa Monica pier seems to have a sizeable amount of Lapras sightings.

Want to hatch one? You’ll need a ten kilometer egg to hatch a Lapras. Good Luck!

Region Specific

Like the rare spawns we’ve just mentioned, there are some notable region-specific pokemonPokémon to look out for if you live locally or are visiting specific areas of the globe. Here are four specific examples:

Tauros: This is a normal type of Pokémon that seems to only appear in North America. They can be found in desert-like areas like New Mexico and Nevada.

Kangaskhan: This is another normal-type that tends to appear only in the Australasia area of the world. Many find this rare Pokémon near cities and parks.

Mr. Mime: Unsurprisingly, this Pokémon makes its home in Europe. Mainly, you’ll find this street performing Pokémon in city centers like, you guessed it, Paris, London, and Munich.

Farfetch’d: This is more believable than you’d think. This hybrid combines normal and flying types and only seems to be able to be caught in Asia. Like many of its region-specific ilk, this Pokémon can be found in parks and cities.

Pokéestops

As you get to know the Pokémon Go system, you’ll find that Pokéestops are your trainer’s lifeblood. Pokéstops are typically monuments, parks, or attractions, so get to know your local attractions so that you can always quickly refill your Pokémon Go stock. Once your trainer is in range of a Pokéstop, press the icon and spin the coin that appears on your phone’s screen. This will yield three or more distinct rewards. Once you’ve spun, the Pokéstop will go on cooldown for a brief period of time.

Here are some of the items that you can receive at these areas:

Items: Potions to heal your Pokémon, revives to bring them back to life, and incense to lure wild Pokémon to your location are the types of items that can be received at Pokéstops.

Poké Balls: These are probably the most important items in the entire game. You can get standard Poké Balls here as well as stronger variations if you’ve met the level requirement.

Eggs: Sometimes, a Pokéstop will yield eggs. These eggs take a while to hatch and can provide you with new Pokémon to train and care for. These eggs come in two kilometer, five kilometer, and ten kilometer variations. These distances are what you must walk in order for the egg to hatch once it’s in an incubator. The further an egg requires you to walk, the better your chances are of obtaining a rare Pokémon.

Teams

pokemon-go-team

Once your trainer has reached the fifth level of progression, you can choose to join a team. There are three unique, opposing teams in the Pokémon Go universe. You can choose between Instinct, which is yellow; Mystic, which is blue; and Valor, which is red. Here is what each team leader says when you are thinking of joining.
Team Instinct
Spark (Instinct Leader): “PokemonPokémon are creatures with excellent intuition. I bet the secret to their intuition is related to how they’re hatched. Come and join my team. You never lose when you trust your instinct!”

Team Mystic
Blanche (Mystic Leader): “The wisdom of PokemonPokémon is immeasurably deep. I’m researching why it is that they evolve. My team? With our calm analysis of every situation, we can’t lose!”

Team Valor
Candela (Valor Leader): “Pokémon are stronger than humans, and they’re warmhearted, too! I’m researching ways to enhance Pokémon’s natural power in the pursuit of true strength. There’s no doubt that the Pokémon our team have trained are the strongest in battle!”

As you can see, each team has a very different mindset, so choose the one that works best for your personality and playstyle. Once you join a team, you can battle other local Pokémon trainers who are members of the other teams at a gym. If you win the battle, you must protect the gym from the other teams. If they win, they’ll own the gym that you tried to defend.

Where Pokémon Go is Heading

One of the things that many Poké-enthusiasts have noticed is clearly missing from Pokémon Go is legendary Pokémon. Many people have heard of powerful Pokémon like Mew and Mewtwo, but unfortunately, he isn’t in the game yet. Niantic has indicated that the game will eventually have legendaries that you can fight and even capture. These include the legendary birds Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres, who are also incredibly strong.

Also, Niantic will add more rank and file types like the aforementioned Pichu; as a matter of fact, there are over 800 possibilities in the Pokémon universe that can become part of the Pokédeck. In addition to these new Pokémon, Niantic has also announced at the most recent E3 that features like online battling between Pokémon trainers and online trading will soon be available in Pokémon Go. There are also plans for avatar upgrades, which could be an unlockable feature in the future.

One thing is for sure, Pokémon Go has taken the world by storm, so you know that Niantic is working on ways to improve an already solid gaming experience so that we can continue to enjoy this very addictive game. Pokémon Go has been a revolutionary experience for many mobile device users; it’ll be fun and entertaining to see how the Pokéworld evolves over the next few years.
