Pokemon GO failed us all

Pokemon GO failed us all

Today I'm going to tell you why Pokemon GO is a game of diminishing returns. At the beginning, Pokemon GO was a great idea. Google creatives made a video showing how augmented reality might make the perfect ecosystem for a worldwide Pokemon game in which monsters could be found wandering a real world. Real battles could be fought, real encounters would happen, and capturing new Pokemon would be super fun. That only sort of happened.

Pokemon GO AR+ update gives iPhone Trainers an edge

Pokemon GO is adopting Apple's ARKit, with an incoming update to the augmented reality game promising a much better experience on iPhone and iPad.

If Delibird is indeed released with gift-giving powers this year, it'll be the biggest punch in the expectations we've had yet.

Pokemon GO Sprint ads as notifications: Are you kidding me?

Notifications from the Pokemon GO app arrived this week with a promotion from Sprint encouraging phone buys. This was not the first time Niantic sent a notification to users on iPhone and Android devices, but it was the first time they pushed for an outside buy.
