In Short

Pokémon is back. From the developers behind the popular (but very nerdy) Ingress comes Pokémon Go, an interactive game that makes great use of Augmented Reality. That means you're not just playing on your phone — you're using your phone to integrate the game into the real world.

And it's been incredible popular from the get-go.

The premise of the game has you venturing out into real world, and with the help of augmented reality (AR) on your phone or tablet, capturing any Pokemon that you come across in the wild. Toss out a Pokeball to capture a Pokemon, then keep them with you as you work your way up towards battling in the gym.
