    i dont get it. how does this work? you walk around town and get notifications on your smartphone that a pokemon is nearby? you then battle it on your smartphone like any other pokemon game?

    It has been years I hoped to see something like this from the company that makes Pokémon...
    Awesome, nothing else to say.

    I honestly can't wait for this... It'll give me more of a reason to go outside and explore. Hopefully the microtransactions aren't too bad though.

    I'm interested in this, the music is done by Masuda, there will be trading and battling as well. It also links to the main game somehow. Very cool concept I'm willing to try out with Pokemon.

    I wonder if the Pokemon locations are generated at random for each player, or if they are universal. What happens if two people encounter the same Pokemon at the same time?

    Really, Nintendo? I play Pokemon to avoid the real world, not immerse myself in it.

    Seriously, though. It encourages kids (and adults, too) to go out into the world, explore, exercise, and whatnot. I like it. I wonder if you need a constant connection... if not, I can use my wifi-only phone.

    This could potentially be cool... with a VR head set. Not using your phone.

    that would be cool if we enconter the same pokemon and punch each other on real life so the other doesn't grab the pokemon first!

    It kinda reminds me about the Pokewalker.
    All this would be great if it were VR based. Dayum.

    They already have that. It's called a "gang."
