Pokémon GO (Japanese: Pokémon GO) is a multiplayer location-based Pokémon game for iOS and Android to be released in early 2016. The game is a collaboration between The Pokémon Company, Nintendo, and Niantic, Inc.. The game will be free to download with in-app purchases.

The game was announced at a press conference in Japan on September 10, 2015. A closed beta was initially scheduled to occur during Northern Hemisphere winter 2015[1], but as of February 2016, no beta testing has been announced.[2][3]


In the game, Pokémon will appear depending on the player's real-world location. When encountering a Pokémon, the player can catch them in Poké Balls and use them to battle other players. Gyms and teams have been confirmed to feature in the game.[4]

Junichi Masuda is looking at ways for the game to connect with the next entry in the core series Pokémon games.

Pokémon GO Plus

Pokémon GO Plus is a peripheral associated with the game, developed and manufactured by Nintendo. It notifies the player about in-game events, such as the appearance of wild Pokémon, via multicolor LED and vibration. It communicates with the player's phone via Bluetooth. It is possible to catch wild Pokémon and carry out other actions by using the button on the device.

Pokémon GO Plus can be worn either by clipping it to clothing, or on a wristband.


  • This is the only Pokémon game to have the word "Pokémon" spelled in Latin letters in its Japanese name.
