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.

The 5th edition of "Dungeons & Dragons" is fun for all involved, whether you are DM conceptualizing their next campaign setting or simply a player eager to try a different class. What might be less fun is the idea of constantly carrying around the core books just because you might suddenly be struck by an awesome idea and need a reference for it.

Fortunately, here is one app that can make such references less of a hassle. It contains all the basic information on character classes, spell descriptions, monster stat blocks, and more. It neatly organizes these elements into their appropriate categories — all you have to do is tap them!

It even has a search feature that immediately specializes itself according to that category. Are you looking for a monster of Challenge Rating 2? Or maybe you are struggling to remember what the school of magic is for the Burning Hands spell. Whatever you wish to know, this app will allow you to set the specific parameters to make your search easy.

▲ Look through a vast library of standard "D&D 5e" information, from classes to monsters.

▲ Searching is conveniently specialized for a particular category, such as CR for monsters.

▲ Read up on vital information, such as stats, or bookmark it for future reference!
