Pokémon GO has now become the most downloaded application for mobile device and the one most discussed ever. What we did not know is that behind this success there was also the mind of the former president of Nintendo, Satoru Iwata, closely involved in game development from the earliest stages of design.

Iwata has even worked in a hospital room, until his last moments of life, using his laptop to exchange views with Tsunekazu Ishihara , president of The Pokémon Company . What was his intention? That the children could have fun with Pokémon Go without spending too much money.

Thus, can we define Pokémon Go the last "gift" of the now dead former Nintendo President Satoru Iwata?

Ehrm, you know that PoGo isn't actually a Nintendo game but a Nyantic one, right?

Ehrrm shhh Nintendo owns the Pokemon name hence they own that app whenever they feel like it. sure they didn't develop poGo but also for invizimals, Sony didn't develop it. Novarama developed invizimals

It can be done. The people I know at work who were all about Pokemon Go weren't spending money on it.
What level were they? I'm level 19 and I find leveling to be extremely slow without spending money on lucky eggs and incense, and I keep running out of balls.
Also, it depends on where you live and/or if you have the ability to travel to a place with tons of pokestops. If you live in a place with few or no pokestops you're not going to be able to get enough balls to keep playing without paying.

hell if I know what level they are. Are levels units of measure for fun?

He helped in the early stages of the game and I remember that he was still alive while go was announced. Working while in the hospital is inspirational for me.
Now I wish I had a good phone even more so I can respect his work more.
