The highly anticipated Augmented Reality Pokemon Gaming App is here.

The 20 year anniversary celebration of Pokemon hit a highlight. The Pokemon Go augmented reality gaming app is released on iPhone and Android devices.

Venusaur, Charizard, Blastoise, Pikachu, and many other Pokémon have been discovered on planet Earth.

Now’s your chance to discover and capture the Pokémon all around you—so get your shoes on, step outside, and explore the world. You’ll join one of three teams and battle for the prestige and ownership of Gyms with your Pokémon at your side.

Pokémon are out there, and you need to find them. As you walk around a neighborhood, your smartphone will vibrate when there’s a Pokémon nearby. Take aim and throw a Poké Ball.

Certain Pokémon appear near their native environment, look for Water-type Pokémon by lakes and oceans. Visit PokéStops, found at interesting places like museums, art installations, historical markers, and monuments, to stock up on Poké Balls and helpful items.

As you level up, you’ll be able to catch more-powerful Pokémon to complete your Pokédex. You can add to your collection by hatching Pokémon Eggs based on the distances you walk. Help your Pokémon evolve by catching many of the same kind.

As your Charmander evolves to Charmeleon and then Charizard, you can battle together to defeat a Gym and assign your Pokémon to defend it against all comers.

Pokemon Go is free-to-play and is optimized for smartphones, not tablets. Players can spend real money on PokéCoins, the in-game currency of Pokémon GO. PokéCoins can then be exchanged for power-ups, extra items, and other enhancements.

Download is available on iTunes and Google Play. 

Pokemon fans are already going nuts about Pokemon Go, driving around in their cars catching virtual Pokemon characters. Watch below our favorite angry gamer Francis playing Pokemon Go.
