The beloved world of Pokémon and the world in which we currently stand have finally merged into one. When you step out the front door, keep an eye out for these adorable creatures in more than just tall grass.

This groundbreaking augmented reality app integrates the phone’s GPS to let loose Pokémon into the wilds of your town, city, country, and across the globe!

As you go about your day, Pikachu, Horsea, and even the rare Mewtwo may pop out on the GPS map. Luckily the gracious Professor Willow has supplied you with your first poké balls, so start slinging them. If you run out, head over to a "Pokéstop" and restock. Set out on your destiny, to be a REAL Pokémon Master!

▲ While strolling down your daily route, wild Pokémon will appear on your current, real world location!

▲ Gaze through the phone's camera and marvel as the world of Pokémon comes to life.

▲ Going beyond simply capturing Pokémon, you can also train them with "Stardust" and "Candy".

There is no Team Rocket here. Instead, there are three other awesome teams to choose from. Will you create a poké-alliance with friends on “Team Valor”, with coworkers on “Team Mystic”, or zap into “Team Instinct” with your family? Conquer the Gym located at your actual public library or firehouse (public facilities) with your team's combined powered-up Pokémon. "Pokéstops" will have potions and revives to help you achieve this feat.

As you continue your quest to “catch’em all”, make sure to give your Pokémon “Candy” and “Stardust” to increase their strength and evolve them! The extraordinary world of Pokémon has finally been made into a reality, which you can enjoy on your next quest out of the house. Just remember, if a Jigglypuff starts singing to you, do NOT fall asleep!
