is a mobile game created by The Pokémon Company, Niantic (a Google company), and Nintendo that uses augmented reality to bring virtual Pokémon into your environment. The goal of the game is to capture all 142 Pokémon by searching for them around you in real life and capturing them using Pokéballs. Once you capture them, you can strengthen and evolve your Pokémon by using the resources that you find at Poké Stops, or by sending them to battle against other Pokémon in game arenas. All that you'll need to play the game is a good network connection, and an active GPS.
