If you’re a fan of both the legendary media franchise Pokemon and augmented reality games, than Pokemon GO is the right choice for you. The game was released way back in 2016, and it rapidly became a great success. Players all over the world began to search the real environment for virtual pocket monsters desperately.
And at four years after its launch, Pokémon GO now receives its 0.177.1 update. You are free to download it in the form of APK (Android Package Kit), and surely you won’t regret doing so.
The 0.177.1 update for Pokemon GO brings along a few changes, but notable:
- With Reality Blending, the little Pokémon will now be able to move behind objects, partially or completely.
- Trainers are now able to contribute for building 3D maps of their favorite PokéStops and Gyms by simply walking around their favorite public places and record a stream of images with their phones.
This obviously means more chances to catch your favorite Pokémon. Whether you like fire-types like Charmander, Charizard, Cyndaquil, or Magmar, water-types like Blastoise or Squirtle, or electric-types like Pikachu or Raichu, the vast world of Pokémon is always thriving with new challenges.
The description from the Play Store is pretty relevant:
“Join Trainers across the globe who are discovering Pokémon as they explore the world around them. Pokémon GO is the global gaming sensation that has been downloaded over 1 billion times and named “Best Mobile Game” by the Game Developers Choice Awards and “Best App of the Year” by TechCrunch.”
Surely you dreamed of becoming a Pokémon master at least once if you’re a fan of the related media franchise. The Pokémon GO game gives you this opportunity, to become even better than Ash Ketchum. He started from the very basics and slowly became one of the best Pokémon trainers in the world.
Pokémon GO awaits you, and remember: you gotta catch ’em all!
