Pokemon GO

Postby Patches » Fri Sep 11, 2015 10:07 am

New Pokemon game in the works by the makers of Ingress. To be released in 2016:
http://kotaku.com/new-pokemon-uses-real ... 1729269893
The game is being developed by Niantic, a former Google start up known for it’s augmented reality smartphone game Ingress.

Niantic says it is working closely with the Pokémon Company and Nintendo to make a brand new style of Pokémon game. The idea is that players go outside, get some fresh air, and capture Pokemon at the same time.
The trailer is a bit lame tho...

This sounds cool. Niantic Labs made ingress and that was very popular worldwide for quite a long time.

So at E3 it was announced that Pokemon GO will release in July 2016, but no exact date was given.
The Verge has a short article about it but the whole 40min discussion with the creators and two field testers is available on youtube.

In the chat the rep from Niantic said last time he checked the testing data they were seeing an ave of 30 pokeball throws per second across the whole test group.

The wareable device "Pokemon GO Plus" wil become availabke later not at launch yet. It is a $34.99 device that allows you get notifications about pokemon close by and give you a chance to catch them with a button press and some RNG.

You don't need one tho, you can also catch them using your phone where you actually have sone control over your throws.

Yep, as in this month. They just haven't said when.
I saw today however the "sign up for field testing" site stopped telling me my country is not supported and instead says "comming soon".

There will be 3 teams/factions to join, Blue, Red and Yellow.
I assume like ingress the only reason to pick one over the other will be team size in your area.

However Red sounds appealing because Sorted and Horde colours :)
