Those who have ever watched Pokemon series will definitely fall in love with the Pokemon Go, not only them but others too since it is available for free to download but in some selected areas as of now.
If you have ever watched the series then there is a high possibility that you may have wished to own Pokeballs to catch Pokemons and keep it with you but the fact is there is nothing such in the real world.
With the evolution in digital world and technology this has slightly become possible for every smartphone owner, we’ll be discussing here the concept of Pokemon game and you’ll also be able to download the apk file irrespective of your location.
To understand why the world has gone crazy about Pokemon Go, we must rewind to few years back and see what it meant to have Pokemons in your pokeballs. Check out the video below to refresh some old memories:
Pokemon Go Game Concept
The Pokemon series showed the existence of Pokemons in real, since it’s not present in the actual world so the Pokemon Go makers Niantic Inc decided to make an augmented reality, which simply means the combination of real world and game.
Just like the Pokemon characters you will have to travel a bit to catch the Pokemon nearby you, your smartphone game is based on GPS so it will guide you to the nearest location where you can catch one, please keep in mind that there is not any REAL POKEMON existing.
See the below image you’ll know how it works:
If you see carefully then the person is real and Pokemon is game based, this is what it actually does, the GPS of the game takes you to the location where there is a Pokemon, it opens up your mobile camera and you are able to see the Pokemon just like it’s shown in the above image.
