For those who are yet to know what exactly the Pokemon GO is all about, let me tell you that Pokémon GO is about looking out for a Pokemon in a world of your own; the world which is nothing but just a creation. It is built on Niantics Real World Gaming Platform and uses the GPS to search around for Pokemon just like the case would have been for real. Pokémon GO lets you find for yourself, from the hundreds of species of Pokemon, the ones who are around you.
Walk, hop, or run! Catch the Pokémon and explore your city or surroundings. As you travel, you can as well catch as many Pokémon as you could. While you move around, the vibration on your smartphone will help you locate Pokemons nearby. Having encountered a Pokémon, you need to aim at your touch screen and take and throw a Poké Ball to catch it. (The traditional way)
