The long-awaited rollout for "Pokémon GO" has at last reached U.S. shores, and with it comes this launch trailer for the augmented-reality game.
Developed by Niantic for iOS and Android devices, the game allows Pokémon Trainers to track down and capture pocket monsters in a real-world setting. When paired with a Bluetooth-powered, Poké Ball-like device called Pokémon GO Plus, the app will notify players that there’s untamed Pokémon in the vicinity. Once you’ve spotted the pocket monster using the AR app, you can throw a virtual Poké Ball to catch the creature. Players are also able to engage other Trainers in battle.
"Pokémon GO" is now available in the United States, Australia and New Zealand. It's expected to launch "soon" in Canada, Europe and South America.
