Mobile Game Spotlight: Pokemon GO

What is Pokemon GO?

Pokemon GO is the perfect choice for gaming fans who want to explore the world around them more! In this 2006 augmented reality game, you can find, capture, train, and battle Pokemons, which appear as if they’re right where you are in the real world. Curious to hop on the Pokemon GO adventure? You’ll be in good company. Since its launch, Pokemon GO has been downloaded over 1 billion times and its popularity is nowhere near declining.

The Pokemon GO game has its own currency, Pokecoins. You can use them to purchase various items and upgrades from the Shop. For example, Limited time boxes, Egg incubators, Premium Raid Passes, Poke balls and many more.

Wondering how to get Pokecoins? There are two ways:

  • Earn Pokecoins by defending a Gym. This way you can earn 6 PokeCoins per hour, with a maximum of 50 PokeCoins per day.
  • Buy PokeCoins. You can do that by adding credit either to your Google Play or Apple ID accounts (depending on the device you’re using). The easiest way to do that is to buy an App Store & iTunes gift card or a Google Play Store gift card online.

How to play Pokemon GO

Pokemon GO is a mobile game, so you’d need to download the Pokemon GO app first. You can do that on the App Store (for iOS devices) or the Google Play store (for Android devices). The game itself is free. You can buy upgrades and perks from the Shop using PokeCoins. Wondering how to buy PokeCoins? The easiest way is with a Google Play gift card, or an App Store & iTunes gift card, based on your device.
