Editors' Review

Get out, meet your neighbors, and capture the local pocket monsters in Pokemon Go for iPhone.

Pros

Not an armchair game: To play Pokemon Go, get outside. Find and capture Pokemon in parks, on street corners, near monuments, in front of churches, on piers, with neighbors, but rarely in front of your home.

Growing community support: Following the game's launch, Niantic seems overwhelmed by the success of Pokemon Go and was slow to react to the needs of the large, vocal, and, at times, frustrated player community. After some initial stumbles, Niantic has done a better job of creating public events, from festivals, monthly community gatherings, and holiday parties, to raids and periodic releases of legendary monsters and new pokemon from different regions.

Battle for gyms: Maps are dotted with gyms, where you can battle for control. You can fight opposing teams or assign up to six of your best Pokemon to defend one.

Battle with other trainers: Raid Battles occur when a Boss Pokémon takes over a Gym. Your goal is to defeat this Pokemon, and to do this, you'll need other trainers. Thankfully, the game will notify you of upcoming Raid Battles in your area.

Gather supplies: To stock up on items -- including potions, medicine, balls, fruit, eggs, and incubators -- visit PokeStops and Gyms and spin the photo disc. Each visit generates random items you collect by tapping.

Cons

Gyms skew to higher level players: Gyms, especially in populous locations, tend to be held by high-level trainers with their high-level monsters. While Niantic has adjusted gym mechanics to give more players a chance to knock out opposing Pokemon and occupy gyms with their own monsters, battles over gyms still tilt toward Pokemon with higher hit points and combat power.

Microtransactions: While the game is free to play, unless you are super diligent about collecting and then managing your supplies, you can easily run out of Poke Balls or space in your bag to carry items. Through a shop, you can purchase additional balls, incubators, lures, incense, and bag upgrades. Items start around a buck and top out at $10.

Bottom Line

Get out, take a walk, and capture pocket monsters in Pokemon Go for iPhone. The free-to-play game is rewarding no matter your level, but to achieve high levels requires an investment of time and possibly money.
