Here’s a breakdown of a few key techniques you can use to maximize your play time, along with a few secrets we’ve uncovered. Now get back to catching!
Pokemon GO cheaters have arisen. Hacks have been initiated, and spoofing of data has begun to be sent to Niantic. Not long after this revolutionary game has been put out into the world, users have taken advantage of its loopholes. With Niantic busy putting out server fires and keeping the game online as long and as constant as possible, there’s ample space for exploits. What I’d like to do today is speak with both the cheaters and Niantic, and send a plea out into the world for some reasonable action.
This game is monstrously popular. The app has an extraordinarily high retention rate – people download the app and keep playing the game. More people actively use this app than they do any other mobile game – and almost any other app, including Twitter. Pokemon GO is a genuine phenomenon.

Pokémon Go is a game where you collect and trade cute creatures called Pokémon (Pocket Monsters).
It’s one of the first popular games to use “augmented reality” – a kind of cross between real life and an online world. The game makes it look like Pokémon appear in real life places by using the GPS and camera on your phone.
It’s already become a craze in Australia and America, and has made it’s way into the news across the world.
Here, we’ll take you through what you need to know about the game and how you can help keep children using the app safe.
If you’ve been on any form of social media over the past week, you’ve probably seen that Pokemon Go is everywhere (even if some people want it to go away). What many thought would be a silly one-off game for the nerdiest of nerds has quickly embedded itself as a game-changer for the mobile gaming industry.
Think about it. People are actually going outside to play a video game now. I ran into dozens of other Pokemon Go players yesterday wandering around my nearby Pokestops. This is unlike any game we’ve ever played before.
But if you’re just getting started, it might seem a little daunting, so we’ve made a list of 10 things you need to know to be the very best.
Pokémon Go is now officially out in more than 30 countries. Here’s how to get started on your real-world Pokémon journey.
The mobile game, which lets you catch Pokémon in augmented reality as you explore the world around you, has begun rolling out to Google Play and the App Store in certain countries.
In preparation for your own Pokémon journey, WIRED has tips on what to expect from the game and how to play.
Despite shifting to phones from handheld games consoles,Pokémon Go feels very familiar if you’ve ever played a core series game before. You’ll meet the newest Pokémon Professor, Professor Willow, who’ll guide you on your way and explain the world of Pokémon.
Seriously, there’s so much speculation and outright misinformation out there – it’s like being on the playground as a kid again and hearing about how you can catch Mew under the truck in Pokemon Red.
The truth is that it’ll probably be a while before we truly understand everything, because developer Niantic seem to be allergic to actually explaining anything.
As a result, here are a few widely accepted tips and tricks for playing Pokemon GO. Again, none of this has been confirmed by Niantic, but a vast majority of players seem to agree on the below information.
The 11-year-old son of Diegnan, a digital marketer from South Orange, N.J., had on Monday downloaded the popular app, an augmented reality game in which you search the real world for assorted Pokémon creatures.
By Wednesday, she got a surprising notification on her phone: The family had blown through more than 75 percent of their monthly data plan, even though the billing cycle had barely started.
“I thought to myself, ‘Why all this crazy usage?’ she says. “Then I thought, ‘Oh wait a minute — maybe the game is using it up.’ And my son didn’t even realize it.”
Diegnan dropped the hammer, curtailing her son’s gameplaying and shutting down the family’s data usage outside of Wi-Fi networks, lest they start racking up $15 for each extra gigabyte.
If you are a Pokémon Go fan yourself — or merely have an app-happy son or daughter — this Data Apocalypse is likely already familiar to you. And if it isn’t, just wait. Your bill might be in the mail.
Pokémon Go is finally here. After a few delays, the augmented reality-infused Pokémonapp launched last week, and spread like wildfire over the weekend, with hordes of eager pokémon trainers taking to the streets to try to catch ‘em all. Confused about how it works? Need a few tips on your way to becoming a pokémon master? Read on.
First things first, you’ll need the Pokémon Go app, available for iOS in the United States, Australia, and New Zealand. If you’re not in those areas, hang tight, as Ninantic is rolling out to other regions as time goes on.
Once you’ve been logged in, you’ll get a brief introduction by the dreamy Professor Willow, who’ll give you an introduction to the game, and walk you through catching your choice of the three starter pokémon — either a Charmander, Squirtle, or Bulbasaur, which should all be familiar to Pokémon regulars.
