For Android smartphone users, this game is a thriller because you can capture the monsters, train them, and force them to battle right in your screen.

What is Pokemon Go?
If you are a new Android Smartphone user, you might be asking what really Pokemon Go is. Pokemon is a short form of Pocket Monsters that are kept in small balls as the trainer walks in the ‘gyms’ where the main battle takes place. The winner in the battle becomes the ‘gym leader’. Pokemon Go is the game played on Android smartphones and takes the principles of the Pokemon and applies them to the real world.
How Pokemon Go operates on your Android Phone
The game uses GPS to position and move the monsters so that you can set out looking for them. You can, therefore, look and pick the Pokemon in real world locations often not very far from your Android Phone. When you get to the area, you have to wave the camera until the animated Pokemon is captured. Then, you can catch it by throwing animated Pokeball, capture it, and even become the ‘gym leader’.
How to track the nearby Pokemon
In the older Pokemon Go version, you could track how close a wild Pokemon was using footprints. However, this feature was changed after a bug that made all Pokemons to be three footprints. In the new Pokemon, you get the nearby Pokemon using the ‘sightings’. Niantic is also testing the new ‘Nearby Pokemon’ feature to make the game more enthralling.
