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!

Magikarp have long struck you as the most useless Pokemon but that is not the case in this game. Enter the humble hamlet of Hoppy Town and use your Trainer skills to turn these floppy fishes into league-winning jumpers. It is a casual pet game starring the Pokemon everyone loves to joke about!

Raising it is a simple matter of helping it feed on berries and doing training exercises before taking on a League. Increase its “JP” to leap higher than the opposition! And as you raise the next generation of winners, you can also discover Magikarp with various scale patterns. Meet other Pokemon who support them as well. It is high time that these fishies took the spotlight!

▲ There is more to the Magikarp than meets the eye in this game. Raise them well!

▲ Train them to take the ultimate leap and dominate the Magikarp Jumping leagues!

▲ Recruit other support Pokemon to also cheer on your Magikarp for an added boost.

Video games have certainly come a long way and this hilarious RPG demonstrates just how far things have changed. It presents the classic story of a dragon knight entrusted to save his world, but goes on to tell his tale using different RPG types across the decades!

It starts with a 2D side-scroller before a treasure chest instantly puts you in a larger, free-moving map. Discover more treasure chests in the area and pick up other items that evolve the game. From “Turn-Based Battles” to “3D Sprites,” the whole world keeps on transforming as the story progresses.

One moment, you could be dodging traps and bosses like old-school adventure games and in the next moment, you are facing off a squad of enemies alongside a party of friends! It even makes parody references to certain RPGs along the way! It is both an entertaining an educational experience for all video game history buffs.

▲ The story begins in the memorable style of sprite-based action adventure.

▲ Open special treasure chests to transform the game and incorporate new graphics and gameplay!
