Join Trainers across the globe who are discovering Pokemon as they explore the world around them. the newest update to Pokemon GO, the global gaming sensation that has been downloaded over 750 million times and named "Best Mobile Game" by the Game Developers Choice Awards and "Best App of the Year" by TechCrunch, introduced a revamped Gym gameplay experience, including the opportunity to join together with others to battle against powerful Pokemon in the new Raid Battle feature. Venusaur, Charizard, Blastoise, Pikachu, and many other Pokemon have been discovered. Now's your chance to discover and capture the Pokemon 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 ownership of Gyms with your Pokemon at your side. Pokemon are out there, and you need to find them. As you walk around a neighborhood, your smartphone will vibrate when there's a Pokemon nearby. Take aim and throw a Poke Ball. You'll have to stay alert, or it might get away. Search far and wide for Pokemon and items. Certain Pokemon appear near their native environment--look for Water-type Pokemon by lakes and oceans. Visit PokeStops and Gyms--found at interesting places like museums, art installations, historical markers, and monuments--to stock up on Poke Balls and helpful items.
Catching, hatching, evolving, and more. As you level up, you'll be able to catch more-powerful Pokemon to complete your Pokedex. You can add to your collection by hatching Pokemon Eggs based on the distances you walk. Help your Pokemon evolve by catching many of the same kind. Choose a Buddy Pokemon to walk with and earn Candy that will help you make your Pokemon stronger. Take on Gym battles and defend your Gym. As your Charmander evolves to Charmeleon and then Charizard, you can battle together to defeat a Gym and assign your Pokemon to defend it against all comers. You can also participate in Raid Battles at Gyms around the world. A Raid Battle is a cooperative gameplay experience that encourages you to work with up to 20 other Trainers to defeat an extremely powerful Pokemon known as the Raid Boss. If you succeed in defeating it in battle, you'll have the chance to catch an extra powerful Pokemon of your own. It's time to get moving--your real-life adventures await.
