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!

One of the best tricks to get gym battle coins from Pokemon GO is to take over as many gyms as possible, then collect. With this gym battle guide, your team composition is quickly calculated for maximum damage!

Either look for Pokemon alphabetically or type in the name of the one that you want to add to your team. As you add each one to your team, you will check off the special attacks that they can perform. Enter the gym that you are battling or training at, along with the CP of the defending Pokemon, and the professor tells you the order you need to send your team out in, and the likely outcome of the gym battle!

▲ Make a team of at least six Pokemon that you battle with, including their nicknames and moves!

▲ Decide on your course of action, then enter in the opponents you will face.

▲ See how likely winning will be, and in what order you will need to place your Pokemon in.

If you add more than six Pokemon, the gym battle algorithm will choose the best ones for the job. You can keep teams together for future use as well, delete Pokemon that you don't use anymore, or add that rare 10km hatched Lapras!

Stop standing out in the wind, cold, rain, and heat trying to level up your team's gym or to tear down an opposing one. Find your best team to GO! and get the job done.

This tapping evolution game pays tribute to the popular Japanese manga and anime featuring “Titans” — giant, uncanny humanoids who have a penchant for snacking on people. Why not add some variety to their diet with vegetables and minerals as well? Doing so will yield unique evolutions! Create your own combinations of cuisines and witness your hungry Titan change into bigger, stronger, and more disturbing beings!

Simply tap on a food item you want your Titan to eat: lettuce, gems, or of course its... um... preferred source of meat. Feed the shambling colossus enough, and it will evolve into a new form. What you feed it will determine its next mutation, which in turn opens up new branches and unknown possibilities in its evolution tree. If you want to try a new type of Titan, you can devolve it or restart by spending diamonds. What interesting abominations will you unleash on humanity?

▲ Tap the box containing the item you want your Titan to eat. The treasure box gifts you more food.<br>

▲ Try rock-paper-scissors to win food and see your Titan in action! More evolved Titans are stronger.

▲ Check the “Gallary” to see what evolutions you have discovered and what branch you are on.
