Pokemon GO has been announced at the beginning of December 2015 and the fans can wait to play it in public, on their Android or iOS smartphones, which will be connected to a wearable device called Pokemon Go Plus (developed by Nintendo) and which notifies the users when a Pokemon is in the area. Pokemon Z will be a sequel to Pokemon X and Y, but Nintendo hasn’t announced anything about when it will be released.
Pokemon GO will be played by those who like to trade Pokemon, in order to diversify or complete their collection. There are events for these types of trades, but they’re organized occasionally and the players don’t want to wait that long. There are many types of Pokemon “monsters” living in different regions and the players who have water Pokemon (living near water) can trade it with another one living in a cave, for example. In Pokemon GO, the players who will wear the Pokemon Go Plus wrist band, will be informed when there’s a nearby pokemon, as the device will vibrate and use a LED.
There were rumors saying that the Pokemon GO game will be released on February 27 2016, but other sourced have mentioned that the upcoming AR game will be available only next year. If you want to know how you’ll be able to discover pokemon in the real world, check out this trailer:
It will be funny to see people waving their arms around, trying to capture these invisible cute monsters, but when everyone will get familiar with this AR game, especially in Japan, these gestures will become “normal”.
As for the Pokemon Z, the followup to the Pokemon X and Y games that are played on the Nintendo 3DS, the portable game console produced by Nintendo, the rumors were saying that it will be released at the same time as Pokemon GO, next month, but Game Freak Studios, its creator, hasn’t said anything about its release.
