Pokémon GO released in Australia!


Pokémon Go has completed field testing and is now fully available in Australia!

The app allows you to find and capture Pokémon in the real world, is available on compatible iOS and Android devices. Pokémon Go is all about capturing lots of Pokemon by travelling around on foot, whilst challenging gyms near local landmarks. Players choose a team: Red, Blue or Yellow to compete for dominance of the gyms within the local area. If you’ve had any experience with Niantic’s other title Ingress, it’s incredibly similar. Pokémon Go provides players with the amazing opportunity to meet up and travel together in search of more Pokemon, as a beta tester I’d highly recommend getting a group of friends to come out and play the game with you! So far only the original 151 Pokemon are available, but more are planned for release.

The accompanying wristband, Pokémon GO Plus, is not available at time of writing. Keep an eye out, though, as it may hit shelves soon! In the meantime, feel free to head out with your new Pokémon GO app, see the world, and catch ’em all!

About Cappa

Nathan is really, really bad at Pokemon, despite having played for a fair time. During the week, he spends lots of time with sick people and learning about why they are sick. Nathan is supposed to enjoy VGC, and pretends not to enjoy Love Live and distasteful memes. To listen to Nathan complain about life regularly, follow on Twitter @CappaVGC.
